    Afternoon Tea at Browns Hotel in the Old English Tea Room is an amazing experience. They informed us on arrival that the cake stand containing sandwiches and savouries would be replenished as many times as we required at no extra charge and the same applied to the scones and cakes. The visit was in memory of my wife's mother who passed away last year as this was her favourite venue for afternoon tea. She said it was even better than The Plaza in New York where we took her for her 80th birthday

    We thought this was the best AfternoyTea experience we ever had in London. The warmth of the room sets the right tone for the occasional and the offerings were delectable. There was also a wide selection of teas, each one enjoyed of the three we chose.

    Very disappointing. I take my god daughter here every year as we have always enjoyed it. This year will have been my last. I was seated just inside the door which felt like a corridors as my table was next to the queue. The sandwiches were or poor quality and fewer than previous years. The tea was not hot enough. I also thought I had booked an non alcoholic cocktail which did not arrive.that may have been my mistake in the booking. The service was sporadic and I had to walk to reception to ask for hot tea and again for the cheque.

    Väldigt goda bakverk. Fantastiskt urval av drycker. Lite ”stiff upper lip” men väldigt trevligt i övrigt.

    For years afternoon tea at Brown's Hotel has been extolled as one of the best in London. We finally decided to see for ourselves during tea week and it did not disappoint. The service was exceptional - very welcoming, warm, and attentive. I ordered the teatox tea which was gluten free and low sugar - delicious and beautiful. My daughter ordered the regular afternoon tea which was abundant and delicious - the scones were perfection! We highly recommend Brown's and hope we have the opportunity to return when the traditional tea room renovation is complete.

    I visited the tea room yesterday with 2 guests and we all thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
    The food was delicious and refilled plenty of times.
    Service was very professional and attention to detail.
    The pianist took a request and played Happy Birthday to my friend which was a lovely personal touch.
    The only let down was that having read your dress code of no sports wear, it was seen that a teenager also dining was wearing a baseball cap. I felt this lower the ambience of the experience.

    I had a high tea at Brown's with a friend, unfortunately in another room than usual because of works being carried out. The food offered, sandwiches, scones and cakes were of a high quality. We were not asked if we wanted more tea and the final bill included champagne which we did not have.
