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.

Great food and great service.
((((* 11 June 2018 by Ellen from Essex
We had excellent, friendly service from everyone we came into contact with. Everyone treated us like nothing was too much trouble, and our table request was listened to too. The chocolate tea was amazing! Something we'd never tried before but I'd definitely have it again! We weren't too fond of the egg mayonnaise sandwich or the coronation chicken, but everything else was gorgeous, especially the bacon jam!! The sweet treats were all so delicious, it was such a shame I couldn't finish it all! We were a little disappointed that the cocktail wasn't included in the £45 per head, as that is definitely expensive enough without paying the extra £11 for it! That was really the only downfall for us; we found it rather expensive for what we got.

The restaurant had the perfect atmosphere - not too laid back but also not too stiflingly formal. This was especially appreciated on a considerably humid day.
The staff we interacted with were all incredibly attentive and I cannot fault the level of service.
The extra touches were really appreciated - I had mentioned in an email and in an offhand comment to our main waitress that my mum and I were having afternoon tea as my belated birthday present to her. Although her birthday was back in March I was living in France at the time doing a ski season, so it was a lovely surprise that staff still brought her a celebratory cake lit with a candle!
I would struggle to pick a favourite part of the Charlie and the Chocolate factory afternoon tea in all honesty. The cheese scones with bacon jam were my personal highlight of the savoury side of things. Sweet-wise it was so difficult to decide. The bubblegum pannacotta was a lovely novelty and not as sickly as I had expected! The cake pops were great too!
Having the afternoon tea with champagne made it extra special, I would thoroughly recommend this additional touch. Although it was a tough choice between that and trying to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory-inspired cocktail!

My sister and myself absolutely loved The Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Afternoon Tea, the hotel surroundings were beautiful (the flowers were out of this world), staff were very friendly and extremely helpful and the food, well what can I say other than delicious - the cheese scone with bacon jam was to die for as was the little chocolate 'bean'!! We loved every minute!

My granddaughter and I had a wonderful time, service from the moment we walked through the door of the hotel was very attentive.
My granddaughter loved the beano dog, selfies in the foyer before taking the pink lift to the restaurant. Being sat near the large window was great for watching London go about its business. We chose from the children’s menu for my granddaughter and I hade informed the hotel that it was a birthday treat, plenty to eat as seconds were offered. Savouries were delicious especially the cheese scones along with bacon jam. But the sweets were amazing, well presented On a small individual podiums along with a basket full of cake and scones, served with jam, lemon curd and cream. My granddaughter was also presented with an individual slice of chocolate birthday cake with a candle, special touches which meant a lot. Thank you. Staff were very friendly, attentive.
I would recommend this for a special occasion.
