For a truly British experience, treat yourself to Traditional Afternoon Tea in the Restaurant and indulge in a selection of finger sandwiches, savoury bites and homemade scones with a cup of perfectly-brewed tea with tea leaves grown on the Tregothnan Estate in Cornwall. A fabulous Vegan Afternoon Tea is also available for those looking for a plant-based option.

    Excellent. I had the scallops with Parma ham which was exquisite!

    Setting was great, but service was mixed. Often had to wait a long time for attention (restaurant wasn’t that busy), and reasonable requests were ignored. I didn’t want to make a scene in front of my guests but would usually have complained. For such a luxury price I expect luxury service. If I had that service again I’m not sure I would return - there are plenty of other great places nearby.

    Enjoyable overall but spoiled by the bread of the sandwiches being dry as if they had not been covered after they were made.Since they are the first to be eaten it was rather disappointing. The other savouries were very nice as were the desserts. Warm scones would have been better than cold.

    Service was super quick and quality was amazing I ordered the fish main halibut which was really meaty and tasty and my partner had the lamb which was cooked to perfection.

    Love coming to the Oxo Tower. My mum worked here in the ‘30’s and met my dad so it feels a special place to me! Now to our afternoon tea visit! The customer service was excellent - we had a couple of dietary requirements and there was no problems - all catered for. The food was delicious- all so tasty. Range of teas etc was great and on tap when required. Just one little point - I came before and our scones arrived warm in a serviette and this time they were just on the plate. The only minor problem. Will definitely return - value for money. I came with work colleagues and we have been to many afternoon teas. They all said this was one of the best! Thank you

    My husband and I have been to this restaurant several times and it never disappoints. We arrived half an hour erlier than we booked but we sat and had a drink in the bar. The staff knew we were on a tight schedule as we were off to the theatre after dinner. The food came very quickly and my husband chose a starter which had pomegranate and deep fried harissa egg with tabouleh it was one of the best starters either of us had ever tasted.I had the salmon and cuttlefish burger which was good. Then we had sea trout fillet and grilled pear tart as our mains. Followed by pumpkin pie as its in season. Its not a cheap place to eat but the food ,views and staff are well worth the money.
