We enjoyed this tea very much. The food was delicious and as a fan of the Willy Wonka movie I appreciated the Art on the menus.
Staff was kind and helpful, tea was excellent and easily refilled. We were 2 adults and a teen but saw several families with younger kids enjoying at as well.

The sandwiches were excellent. The cake/desert part of the menu was average at best. The scones were okay but it should have had delicious cake. This was my grandaughters 11th Birthday. I informed the hotel when booking and it was confirmed when the hotel contacted me prior to our reservation. However on the day there was no acknowledgement at all.

An inventive afternoon tea but a little disappointed with the quality of the food on offer. The brioche didn't taste very fresh and the selection of savoury treats was a little boring for my taste. The arrival in f the desserts was spectacular - loved the idea of the candy floss but sadly, the taste did not live up to expectations. The service also was lacking and we waited a long time for the sweet treats to be served and had to ask for tea after waiting a while. On the plus side, the chocolate caramel milk was delicious and if you asked, you could have more sandwiches etc. I wouldn't return though as I think London offers some brilliant afternoon teas elsewhere and this was sadly, mediocre.

There were some very interesting items, such as Charlie's cocktail, as an extra, and the pleasantly flavoured candy floss. I also enjoyed the rose garden tea. However, the savoury items were outstandingly pathetic. Small, lightly filled, and prepared the day before as indicated by the dryness of the outer edges of the sandwiches. I've had better sandwiches at Asda! Sweets are heavy on the heavy creams. Considering the cost, I'd never do it again, and I'd never recommend it to anyone. They'd really need to improve on quality and "magic" to get me back. I feel Willy Wonka would not approve.

Was such a pleasure to experience such a lovely afternoon tea. The staff were all so lovely and helpful. Our favourite dishes were the chicken coronation sandwich and the scone with bacon jam. The deserts were great too and the chocolate egg and candy floss were the favourites. Could recommend this enough. Will be back.

Service was really slow...1h 10 mins in and we only had the sandwiches. The food was ok, tbh it was more style over substance. The savoury scones and chocolate financiers were the best parts.
