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

    Had afternoon tea inspired by Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and it was a very pleasant and luxurious experience. Food and tea were delicious, we had an excellent server who took great care of us (special food was prepared for a friend with food intolerances), beautiful ambience (very nice decor and background music). Highly recommended.

    The restaurant environment and ambience were perfect. The selection of savoiry and sweet delicacies were not quite the level I was hoping for. The taste was good, but I had very high hopes and the servings did not quite meet my expectations.

    Service and staff was excellent. Quality of cakes could be a lot higher. Presentation is a WOW but freshness and taste is not at the same level. It is a bit cold in the lobby bar. Needs more “room feeling”.

    Went for afternoon tea here. Restaurant was clean and tidy and accommodated well too allergies but the ‘sweet treats’ were far to sweet to eat almost feeling the sugar sticking to my throat. Also got charged £12 service charge that wasn’t optional and got asked if wanted water or hot chocolate instead of tea and as we aren’t big tea drinkers we asked for water and got charged £5.50 but this wasn’t explained when offered that we would get charged extra for this. This should be explianed that there is an extra charge for water but also say that the service charge is optional rather than adding to the bill.

    Simply wonderful

    Afternoon Tea was lovely. The waiters and waitresses were very attentive, perhaps to the extreme where we felt a little rushed and pushed out of the door before we were ready to leave. The bill was brought to our table without us asking for it. We had considered a cocktail but it felt as though they wanted us out so they could set up for the evening ahead. This was sadly disappointing.

    Had Charlie and the Chocolate Factory themed afternoon tea. Food was plentiful and service was faultless.

  • ((((* 26 November 2018 by Rafhia from London

    I came with my friend on the 23rd of November, it was her 30th birthday treat. The food and service was amazing we had to get second servings of the quiche and cotton candy! The only downfall was that I mentioned to someone on the phone and when I came on the day that it was my friends birthday and I would like a cake brought out but this didn't happen, it was forgotten.

    This was our second time doing tea time at One Aldwych and it did not disappoint. The service was top notch and the food amazing. We will gladly return on our next trip to London.

    It was absolutely amazing. The food was delicious and the staff were very attentive. Would highly recommend Charlie and the chocolate factory afternoon tea.
