    I love a good tea sandwich and they were great, my favorites were the avocado/pepper wrap and the cheese scone with bacon jam!

    Booked afternoon tea with champagne as a surprise for my daughters 21st Birthday. The sandwiches, cakes and tea were lovely. I had requested if they could do a birthday plate for her to mark her 21st. They didn’t disappoint and my daughter loved the surprise. The service was excellent and very welcoming. Would definitely book again!

    We absolutely loved this afternoon tea. We can't praise the staff enough! They were so friendly and attentive and offered us more tea or to try different teas, coffee and hot chocolate as well as have more sandwiches. The food was delicious and we were not rushed at all. We have been to many different venues for afternoon tea and never had such friendly service. Would highly recommend.

    We visited for afternoon tea and we thoroughly enjoyed it and were very full when we left. The warm cheese scone with the bacon jam was superb. The quiche was also fabulous, the pastry just melted in your mouth. All the desert dishes were fantastic but the egg nog and golden chocolate egg were the winners for me. The service was impeccable, and it was lovely to have good portion sizes of the cream the bacon jam to accompany the scones. My friend is gluten intolerant and her food was also amazing. I will definitely recommend Afternoon tea at One Aldwych and infact already have.

    All the food was amazing plus the option to have a second round of sandwiches was great. Staff were very polite and attentive and service was quick. The cheese scones and bacon jam were a particular favourite.
