Lovely lovely staff! So kind and polite and they really made you feel special. Great food and we got even more if we asked. After thanking them for the great starters the staff even gave us the recipe for one of the courses. So lovely ??

We had a lovely afternoon tea, the savouries were unusual and delicious we ordered more. The cakes and pastries were all scrumptious and the candy floss was delicious.

So we went to the “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” inspired afternoon tea on Saturday and although quite good I must say I was disappointed ?? and would not recommend it and here is why. My boyfriend obviously ordered a non gluten free afternoon tea and he got a lovely selection of wraps, sausage rolls, sandwiches, quiches and savoury scone with bacon jam (you could reorder sandwiches with no extra cost) and, as I got all excited to see my selection, only to be disappointed that I had brown bread and all different flavours that were on not on the menu - not impressed. I had one beetroot (only beetroot), avocado & pepper and chicken coronation. I did have a little tart but the flavour wasn’t that great. Plus unfortunately the bread was a bit stale, like it had been sat out on the side for a bit. The team there were really good and saw my obvious disappointment and offered us both a glass of champagne which was nice but I think when you are paying £47 per person (yes you read right!) I would have expected more of an effort. For the sweets, we both had the same which was nice but again all was a bit like warm like it had been sat on the side for a bit too long. The cake pop was gooey and over sweet and the chocolate mint milk was not chilled like it should have been. I did really enjoy the candy floss but that doesn’t justify the £47 experience. There was nothing that reminded me of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, no golden egg, no chocolate fountain, no Willy Wonka references so that was equally disappointing. I do not recommend going here unfortunately and think you can get better gluten free afternoon teas in London.

Beautiful setting and fantastic service from the moment you enter the door, no from the moment you book! A clever and delightful afternoon tea and not sickly at all as may be expected.
