    Exceptional service and food served at the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory afternoon tea at the One Aldwych. The fun factor was a Gold Star 5. The Cheesecake stuffed Golden Egg was remarkable. This was worth every minute and dollar spent.

    Every dish was fantastic. We especially loved the chocolate egg, caramel chocolate milk, and egg sandwich.

    The sandwiches were delicious, the sweets a little bit too sweet and ”special”. I’d have prefered some different kind of scones instead of the cotton candy, chocolate drink, etc. But considering that the motto was ”Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” the choice of sweets totally were appropriate.

    The food was amazing, the staff were lovely. Just two things, that made this experience not the best. Firstly, the toilets were horrible. Considering how expensive the hotel is, the toilets need more attention and care. It also makes you wonder how dirty is the kitchen if this is how the toilets are. Secondly, the staff seem to have trouble holding things. We were there for near enough two hours, and in that time, three plates / glasses were broken and the hover had to come out. I know it's a simple mistake, but having to stop your conversation because you cant hear over a hoover is a bit annoying.
