Lovely setting, great food and great service. The member of staff that served us was outstanding but her name escapes me.

On board a glamorous 108-metre yacht permanently moored in Royal Victoria Dock, Afternoon Tea at Sunborn Yacht Hotel London is a unique London experience. Afternoon tea is served in the Lands End restaurant which overlooks 02 and Canary Wharf.

Afternoon tea under the sea, is a unique take on the classic formula, with the opportunity to choose from traditional finger sandwiches or bespoke seafood sandwiches, as well as themed cakes. Diners can choose from a handpicked range of organic teas, or add a glass of Laurent Perrier Champagne to complement the meal perfectly.

The Sundown Bar at the Sunborn Yacht Hotel Docklands offers a range of classic and bespoke cocktails to be enjoyed after afternoon tea.

Offering perfect river views and with a terrace that is bathed in sunshine during the summer, the Sunborn Yacht Hotel London is 5 minutes' walk from Custom House station and The Emirates Cable Car.

    Enjoyed our Afternoon Tea - we chose the traditional option
    The whole place was very clean and smart, however no atmosphere in the restaurant and, although very nice, our waiter seemed inexperienced.
    Wouldn’t rush back, however would return if a friend or family would like to visit

    The actual boat and experience was amazing! You can’t fault it. The service was great and the waitress called Laura couldn’t be more helpful. The food tasted great, there was sooo much for an afternoon tea, we even took a bag home full of the sweet treats.
    The only downside, on the bill was added a 12.5 service charge. I had read the paperwork prior to going and it wasn’t mentioned in my booking. And at the time I didn’t know if this was discretionary or mandatory. So I paid it only to find out it was discretionary later when I got home.
    It just seems very excessive to add it on without warning.

    The location is excellent and really easy to find. 3 choices of afternoon tea and The under the sea afternoon tea was I feel by far the best choice, however I didn't feel that the staff was attentive. Nobody asked us if was ok or how was the food and most importantly no one explained to us how it worked. I had to ask several waitresses if our sandwiches could be replenished and then again about the drinks.

    Was happy with the afternoon tea, the champagne was a little warm though, food was lovely and sandwiches were very nice, it’s definitely worth the money

    On arrival istated that i had emailed earlier that one afternoon tea was gluten free, i got a bemused look subsequently we waited 20 mins before we eat as obviously the message hadn't been passed to the kitchen.
    i thought the food was poor and i had to return my cream as there was black bits in it, looked like false eyelash or something. I had put some of the cream on my scones so sent them back as well and asked for replacement scones. these never arrived and i refused to pay for one of the afternoon teas. We was offered water on arrival and i thought it was free, but no that was an extra £4 and £4 for service charge and i didn't even get replacement scones.
    As we was early we had a drink in the bar. two rose wines topped with lemondade £16. after the food we went back to the bar and once again ordered 2 more rose wines only to be told there was no more rose wine so we ordered on rose wine and one dry martini and lemonade £17. Once again i went to the bar and tried again to order a rose wine, the bar man then went away and came back with a new bottle. Why did the barmaid not do this earlier. So i had again rose topped with lemonade and dry martini and lemonade. Whilst I'm waiting to pay the barman answered the phone and left me standing and told the other barmaid to take my money, she then served someone else so i did no more and went and sat at my seat and said come find me when you want to take me money. 5-10 mins later she came over with a bill for £19. our drinks had increased in price in less that 30 mins. Obviously i told her this and she went away and came back with the correct bill.
    I have stayed on the boat twice with friends and also had afternoon tea before and i had highly recommened this. Not this time, i was so disappointed with the food and especially with the bar staff who clearly have no idea what they are doing. This is meant to be a high class establishment. Kids could of run it better. Unfortunatley i will not be returning....

    Great venue, but the quality of afternoon tea was very poor. Some of the sandwiches were almost inedible.
