Amazing, couldn’t recommend enough. I took my parents for their 30th wedding anniversary everything from presentation to staff to flavours was brilliant.

One Aldwych have created a magical afternoon tea experience that features indulgent treats inspired by Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Executive Chef, Dominic Teague has been busy in his own inventing room concocting the most delicious spread of savouries and sweets, and maybe a fizzy lifting drink or 2. Teatime treats are served alongside a selection of award-winning loose leaf teas and infusions from Canton Tea, each of which has been chosen to complement the delicate flavours from the kitchen.

Originally built in 1907 as the home of the Morning Post newspaper, One Aldwych occupies one of the most important Edwardian buildings in London, offering beautiful rooms, serious cocktails, delicious food and a brilliant buzz.

One Aldwych is an award-winning contemporary luxury hotel in the heart of London, just a 4-minute walk away from Covent Garden Tube Station.

    Loved it, the cheese and onion quiche and the chicken sandwich were our favourite from the savoury. The cakes were all delicious but a serious sugar over load... the attention to detail, the helpful and polite staff and overall a very good experience. We went with 2 very young kids who not only loved it but they kindly accommodated our daughters request for chips!!

    Wonderful experience at Charlie and the Chocolate Factory-Inspired Afternoon Tea at One Aldwych. Food was excellent. Choice of teas, savories and sweets were yummy. The service was good. Service was not too overbearing; gave enough personal space but always there to help. Accommodated our vegetarian menu request at the last minute. Only complain was the initial confusion on actual table location - the indigo hotel or the lobby. No clear information upfront. Even though the conformation came from indigo but ended up seated at the bar in the lobby, which was not bad in any sense.

    It was amazing!!! The service exceeded our expectations. It was our anniversary and they brought us an additional cake. Everything was perfect. Thank you!!

    The food was amazing and the staff were very attentive to ensure the best experience was had by us both.

    We thought the whole experience was brilliant. Definitely one of our favourites. We liked that we weren’t rushed at anytime, we loved the themed menu without umpa lumpa’s serving us. It was beautifully executed. There should have been four of us for afternoon tea so we will have to come again with the missing person.

    Brilliant experience. Very fun cocktails and a fun, but not childish, experience.
    The food was made with care - our dietary requirements were expertly dealt with and the tasted great.
    Would highly recommend.

    An excellent afternoon tea - a nice twist on a “normal” one. Superbly presented and very tasty. Lovely surroundings too and plenty of space.

    Friendly and inviting reception. Our hostess was engaging and knowledgeable and happy to answer questions as well as put us at our ease.
    Accommodating coeliac and dairy free diners the savouries were great. The deserts were something else - the sharpness to the candy floss was brilliant.
    Thank you for making my dads birthday special. ??

    We were very disappointed in the tea and thought it was extremely over-priced for the quality of the food. It was our most expensive and least enjoyed meal of our time in London. Also, we expected theming outside of what was served at our table. We were underwhelmed to say the least.
