    We’d booked afternoon tea for my wife’s birthday, our teenage daughters in attendance. We’d phoned ahead to clarify confusion over the Library and the Drawing Room and were told we would be in the Drawing Room. On arrival we were lead to a basement room called The Meeting Room “as it is your birthday”. We were stunned into silence and awkwardness. The room was dark, bars at the window, no atmosphere, a bus stop at ground floor level so that every time a bus pulled in, our room became even darker, passers by staring in at us. It was bizarre. We ended up playing some music through our phone to perk things up a bit. It was a really bizarre experience. Food was nice except for the victoria sponge with copious amounts of crystalised butter cream. Atmosphere awful.

    What a lovely little restaurant!. Excellent service, and quality of food. Nice ambiance. The braised beef in red wine was super!

    The 3 of us had a wonderful Mary Quant afternoon tea. We were the only ones there and were able to stay from 4.30-6pm. The staff were very obliging and helpful. The food was substantial and well thought out.

    Lovely experience apart from not being offered the elevator in the entrance and not a very friendly door person, once the outside entrance is open again it will be better I am sure. Booking easy. Nice ambience, lovely servers and great food, we particularly liked the carbonara service, very unique! Wine list could be a little more interesting. Overall we had a good time, service was quick, everything was clean, tidy and quiet which is unusal these days, and for which we were grateful.

    Went to a "Mary Quant" Tea in conjunction with the exhibition at Victoria and Albert Museum on Sept 17. Presentation, Creativity and taste of each item (and the tea) were all excellent

    Fabulous and beautiful afternoon tea and we had the library to ourselves. Great way to celebrate an 80th birthday

    Absolutely delightful afternoon tea, served in the drawing room. Mary Quant theme was followed through with a nail varnish bottle containing raspberry coulis, chocolate lipsticks, caramel in s foundation tube. Sandwiches and mini rolls were delicious. It was a bit rich though as we didn’t know a 15% service charge was added to the £40 pp cost. A lovely but one off experience.
