    Visited Palm Court for afternoon tea. The overall dining experience was excellent.Yannis a member of the waiting staff was extremely attentive and informative, carefully explaining the qualities of the teas on offer. I happened to mention that it was my birthday and the staff took this into consideration: the Harpist played ‘Happy Birthday’, and subsequently presented me with a birthday card, mini birthday cake with candle and some miniature tea caddies to take away. Every course was carefully delivered with explanations of what was on offer, with adequate time given between courses, before the next course was presented.

    We had afternoon tea as a birthday present for my Mum. We asked for a quiet table and we were given one. The staff were excellent, attentive and helpful. The tea and food was very good . All round a very pleasant experience for all 4 of us.

    A lovely experience for a special day . The harpist added that extra touch. The meal was pricey but we had more than enough food to last all evening

    Top class food and service. The little touches made all the difference. Have dined at the Ritz and the Savoy and enjoyed the Balmoral equally !

    It was my mums 80th birthday. From the writing on the plate with the cakes to the harp was just amazing couldn't wish for anything better. We had a wonderful time. Thank you so much.

    We went for afternoon tea. A special experience. Service was excellent. Charming staff. Perhaps a bit pricey. Maybe a little less food and reduce the price (although it was great to take some food away home). My wife suggested a 'savoury' tea and a 'sweet' tea each at a lower price. Personally we would have been satisfied with just the savoury food on offer plus sorbet cones at the end.
