Was a fantastic day and the afternoon was outstanding and amazing. Was for a 7 year old birthday and he loved it. The staff made it even extra special. So thank you to the staff. Already looking to book again.

We had afternoon tea here for my daughters 5th birthday. The staff were excellent-really attentive and great with the kids (6,5 and 2). The kids sci fi afternoon tea was great-even an experiment or 2 to make it interesting. The food options on the kids one was very suitable and all got eaten! The normal afternoon tea was also great and there were 2 happy parents. Overall a lovely atmosphere and great experience!

Excellent Science Themed afternoon tea. We all enjoyed it immensely as a treat for our daughter. Lovely drawing rooms. Staff were excellent, attentive and friendly.

We loved the afternoon tea but I have a few comments. First of all with the current situation the waiters were uncomfortably close to us and our children while explaining the food. It made me very uncomfortable as he leaned in close to my 7 year old daughter with his mask barely on. It was under his nose .

Had the most amazing afternoon tea. Not sure who enjoyed it more us or the kids. Was a perfect way to finish our day after visiting that natural history museum. My children are 2,4,6 I was a little worried about taking them for a formal afternoon tea however I really shouldn't have worried the staff were amazing and they were entertained the whole way thru. Really good value for money and the food was delicious.

Lovely experience for my boyfriends birthday! Fun with a little bit of a show and well explained by our waiter. Every little dish was lovely and perfect size!

Handy location, good ambience, excellent 'science afternoon tea' and service - the very hardworking and only waiter deserved his tip and should have had a little more help.

My daughter and I went to the Drawing Rooms to have the Science Themed Afternoon Tea, for Mother's Day, just 6 months late due to Covid. It was practically flawless. The service was friendly and accommodating, even when we arrived late. The tea itself was lots of fun, with interactive choices, dry ice, dinosaur excavation and, most importantly, really tasty food: that chocolate Saturn was to die for!! My daughter took the vegetarian option, but there was also a vegan menu available. There was a great choice of teas, and we didn't have to wait to get a top up. We were also offered an additional plate of sandwiches. The venue itself is stylish and very clean. It certainly felt Covid safe. Not the cheapest afternoon tea we've ever had but without doubt one of the best, and ideal for a special treat.
