Inspired by Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, One Aldwych have created a unique afternoon tea. From decadent golden eggs to blueberry brioche and playful flavoured candy floss, every item reflects the wit and wonder of Roald Dahl's classic tale.

Executive Chef Dominic Teague and his team have created a scrumdiddlyumptious One Aldwych afternoon tea menu using the finest, freshest ingredients. 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.

    I thought the savoury food was incredibly tasty. Unlike previous experiences that I have had at similar venues, the sandwiches were very fresh and extremely tasty. Both myself and my guest appreciated being able to pick which sandwiches etc. we would like to have in the second serving. The cheese scones were beautifully tasty and warm with a great texture and the bacon jam was a huge surprise! We both loved it. However, the sweets were a disappointment, especially due to the Afternoon Tea theme! I thought the presentation looked extremely tired, with the paint chipping off the wooden steps. The warm pastries in the bowl were tasty, although could have been presented better. We were not as impressed with the sweets on the steps. We made the mistake of eating the pannacotta first, which neither of us enjoyed at all! This then spoilt the taste of the rest of the sweets as all we could taste was the bubblegum flavour. The cake pop was dry and tasteless and the milk was nothing special, especially compared to the delicious hot chocolate that we had. I would say my overall review, would be that the tea was in two halves, we were blown away by the savoury (which was unexpected) and let down by the sweets - which we had been excited to try.

    The staff were fantastic and extremely friendly.

    We were slightly disappointed. Our servers were very friendly, but we did not get our tea until an hour into our seating - even though we started with the special cocktail - that is still way too long. We asked for no salmon in half of our order when we made the booking and again when we sat down. However, they still included salmon in half of our sandwiches. The desserts and tea were great!

    Lovely place, excellent ambience, great service. The only downside is that the flavours were not designed for kids. My girls are sweet lovers and they just did not eat any of it. Not even the candy floss which had a strange flavour!

    Fantastic restaurant. An absolute treat as soon as you walk through the door (which is opened for you!). The food was great and themed so well to the film/theatre show, with plenty of surprises - especially the sweet treats. The cocktail is delicious and definitely one to go for too. The way everything is served up is wonderful, and certainly a 'must-do' for any Charlie and the Chocolate Factory fanatic, or even for something a little different!
