The tea was a big disappointment. The afternoon tea order for a Lovers tea was mixed up and basically no different from the ordinary tea. The sandwiches were too big and range of cakes poor. Had to ask for milk , the sandwiches and scones all of which came separately. The crockery did not match and the overall presentation was poor. The dining room lacked atmosphere. We were glad to get out. Compared to other afternoon tea experiences, it was overpriced and the worst. Certainly did not live up to the 5 star hotel listing the hotel pertains it has

Generally ok for afternoon tea but there was no one else in the restaurant so it lacked ambience. Also, the service wasn’t great, I won’t go back and would certainly not recommend it.

The hotel is beautiful and had the Xmassy in the air but it was empty which is really strange for this time of the year. The member staff is very friendly. The Service was fine too.

Food was excellent and not too badly priced given the location (London - The Bentley Hotel). We were guests of the hotel and it was nice to have a fine eatery onsite. The only thing that was a bit weird was that we were the only diners the entire time we were at dinner. Could have been time of year, day of week, etc. but the food and service were great.

We went for champagne afternoon tea and the restaurant looked lovely and our greeting was lovely, but the rest was below average I'm afraid. The tea was weak, everything was brought out together and no plates or cutlery were changed so we were using the savoury utensils for the sweet. I am pescatarian and they brought me a separate plate but still put chicken sandwiches on the plate...what if I had an allergy or a religious preference? They didn't find out. The scones were dry and hard and the clotted cream was like a heavy ball of ice-cream we had to dig into. The desserts were bland and not fresh. The floor under my feet had something sticky on it which hadn't been cleaned beforehand and it got onto my shoes. I told a member of staff and she said 'oh ok thanks' We had such high hopes for a tasty, classic champagne tea but were disappointed.

This was my 3rd time here for afternoon tea! It's a lovely place to go - especially for a special occasion. The food was freshly prepared and delicious. I took my parents who enjoyed the whole experience. The staff were very professional and friendly too.

A warm welcome, coats taken and hung for us. Friendly but formal service with a good selection of sandwiches, scones (with jam and clotted cream with refills) and a wide range of teas or coffee (including decaffeinated) which also had refills. The room was well appointed and had a good ambience. As a plus, we were given food for 4 although we were a party of 3. The only quibble was a service charge which we were not expecting was added to the bill. This hadn't been pointed out nor did we see it on the menu.
