Lovely experience at One Aldwych, the food and sweets were good, so were the cocktails (strawberry punch and apple martini recommended!). Service was lovely. Couldn’t have asked for a nicer birthday lunch.

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.

    An exceptional experience. Peaceful setting. Wonderful food and plenty. Given option of ordering more within price, unlike other restaurants where they have charged extra to have additional food. Desserts were delightful and very tasty as were the savouries with lots of variety of tastes. Appearance of food magical.

    booking was really easy. we wanted a vegan and a veggie tea and this was really easy to arrange via email. service was fab in the day. however the actual tea, esp the vegan one was very poor. most things were dry and tough. would not be going back.

    The afternoon tea at One Aldwych was absolutely wonderful. My husband and I both really enjoyed it, even more than we were expecting. The food was fabulous. You're given a small sample of six creative savory and eight sweet dishes, all of which were total perfection. The very friendly staff is more than happy to provide you more of anything you really enjoyed from the sampling. To top everything off, the tea offerings were also delicious. They were so good we ended up getting two pots each and enjoying four of the five flavors offered (The only one we didn't try was "Swudge - Green tea with spearmint and peppermint leaves infused with a hint of liquorice," only because neither of us a big fan of liquorice and mint in tea.) The whole experience was lovely and quintessentially British. I haven't been to any other afternoon tea offerings, in London or otherwise, but I can't imagine one being better than this. If you're mulling this one over, I assure you you will absolutely not regret booking it.

    Service was good but the gluten-free options left a lot to be desired - I've made better scones at home myself so. It felt a little rushed, perhaps as our booking was later in the day (4:30), so we came away feeling a little short-changed.

    Our server was very helpful and knowledgeable. We knew to set forth our dietary restrictions when we made the reservation and our server knew all about it and was well prepared for us. One in our party was gluten free and one was dairy free and gluten free. They had assortments for everyone and the individuals on restrictive diets did not feel left out at all. The atmosphere was fun and the 6 in our party had a great time. Lots of tea options and plenty to eat

    Absolutely stunning. Came for Afternoon Tea as a surprise for a friends birthday. She was overwhelmed. Everything was perfect, from the moment we entered the hotel to the service we received and the food we ate. The whole afternoon tea experience was amazing. The food was out of this world. A great twist on the traditional afternoon tea. Compliments to the Chef and his Team. We would definitely recommend Indigo @ the One Aldwych as a must if you are visiting London. Thank you all

    Excellent customer service! One waiter explained a little history about the different types of tea! The food was incredible and great value for money as everything is refillable.
