Booked this for my Husbands Birthday. We love having cream tea and this was a Gin twist on that. The service was excellent, food plentiful and very tasty. Gin cocktail finished off a wonderful afternoon

    My friend and I were having a day out together before school term ends and the Gin Palace was a great choice to have afternoon tea. The service was very good and welcoming. The food was excellent and the Gin tea was lovely and refreshing.
    The atmosphere was cosy and not like some I have been to before, to open and cold.
    We couldn't eat all of the items so we were able to take them away in a lovely box.
    I will be going back with my sister for her Birthday in September.

    Good value afternoon tea, nice rather than special.
    Some of the white bread sandwiches had started to go a bit dry probably happened as they were waiting to be bought out.
    Patisserie were mostly yummy, strangely they were referred to as "cookies". Lemon & blueberry tart a little disappointing lacking flavour.
    Tea selection very limited to breakfast tea or Earl Grey. Would have liked a wider selection, eg ceylon, darkening

    Brilliant G & Tea Afternoon Tea in The Gin Palace! The cakes were amazing, and a lovely gin and tea cocktail to wash it down with! Would highly recommend this, plus they bought up an extra cake as it was my friend's birthday

    The Gin Palace is not open on a Sunday. Your website is incorrect and should be amended accordingly. We were moved in a lounge area . We arrived on time and shown to setee and waited 20 minutes for a pot tea. We waited a further 40 mins for afternoon tea to arrive. Gluten free tea for one was ordered as per original booking . My partner had his tea I had to wait another 20 mins to a gluten free tea.. the Gin cocktail special was served.? The bill was reduced because it was a different venue. The food was lovely for non gluten free but the cake selection lacked the flair for gluten free. Gluten free scones were nice and sandwiches.
    For me it was not what I expected as it was a special event and did not live up to The RItz, Fortnum & Masons, Browns and Park Lane Hotel. What a disappointment. Customer service is very poor and I don't think it front of house staff. They were polite and gave service with a smile to oblivious to the time the keep you waiting.?

    So disappointed that the Gin Palace is shut EVERY Sunday but I booked the Gin Palace and it is written all over the site and the confirmation. This was a 60th present imagine my disappointment and in front of my friends too. I seriously could not comprehend this. Even this feedback requests this about the Gin Palace and I never got to enter the Gin Palace, I would like a lovely tea set as compensation please and an apology.

    We booked the gun palace for a friend's birthday. However when we arrived, the gin palace was not open so we were sat in the hotel bar. We had to wait over an hour for our tea to be served despite booking it for 2:30pm. The service was slow and when we complained about how long we had been waiting the waitress did not believe us. We eventually got 25% taken off the bill. The gin cocktails were nice as were the cakes and scones were warm which is always good. It was a shame the service let it down.

    Very nice afternoon tea, great cocktails. Staff were extremely pleasant and helpful but rather inattentive, so getting served more drinks was hard work.
