What an amazing afternoon tea! Very accomodating with substitute gluten free and low sugar options which were also delicious! The ambiance was wonderful and the staff were attentive and welcoming! My favourite dish was the gluten free chocolate log, I would love to know exactly what it was (it tasted like it had a date filling)! The scones were also really delicious and I tried a little bit of my husbands panda cotta which was sensational! Overall a wonderful afternoon tea experience for our visit to London! My only negative comment is charging for water with no tap water option, that was a little disappointing, although perhaps that's the London way?

Afternoon tea was lovely and service was amazing. Main area is so stylish and cosy! We were first seated in the library which while lovely was already accomodating a large group which mad side table guests like is feel like we are crashing on someone's party. So when booking make sure to make clear what is your preference (not currently available online so better make a call). We asked to be moved and staff was forthcoming and made it happen!

The best restaurant features was the cosy lounge room! I felt very comfortable and relaxed. My favourite dishes were the scones of course as well as the lovely raspberry and chocolate torte, the cod burger was beautifully delicious and the mozzarella, tomatoe and pesto sandwich was incredibly tasty also!

Fabulous Easter afternoon tea with spiced butter for hot cross buns and warm scones. Plenty of savoury, bakery and patisserie selections and friendly attentive service. Quiet at 2-3pm so ambience suffered a bit but good for relaxing and conversation.

We went for an afternoon tea to celebrate a special birthday. I had booked it several weeks before the event (Refuel, at the Soho Hotel). It was a five star experience. All the staff were extremely courteous and pleasant. We arrived 5 minutes late but that presented no problem. The lady at the reception area of the restaurant said we had the choice of two tables - one in the lounge (nice sofas and low coffee tables) which was very pleasant - but we decided to choose to eat in the main tearoom /restaurant area as we thought it would be easier to manage the food!
And what food .... we had a glass of champagne and a pot of lovely tea and when the sandwiches and cakes arrived it was more like an art installation - it looked extremely pretty and was so well presented. The savoury selection not only included neatly cut finger sandwiches it also included some delicate pastries - like minature sausage rolls containing chirizo and butternut squash delicacies (I think) ... whatever they were they were delicious! The sweet selection had the expected scones (2 fruit and 2 plain per couple) and of course jam and clotted cream, but also shot glasses filled with white chocolate and topped with manderin orange pieces, (tasted devine). Plus little meringue nests filled with cream and passion fruit. They also had profiteroles but buried inside the choux pastry was cream, and banana and they were topped with a mixture of Nutella chocolate and dark chocolate. So everything was delicious and had a little twist on the traditional afternoon tea.
The furnishings of the hotel were beautiful, tartan chairs, comfy cushions, and quirky fixtures and ornaments - you looked out to the main bar which had very attractive wall coverings. And the ladies WC was also very clean, tidy and pleasantly decorated. And the best thing ? Such good value for London! £35 per person with a glass of champagne and about £24 if you didn't. Great selection of quality teas included. We left FULL and happy!
