    Lovely afternoon tea. Very nice and efficient staff, a lovely setting, food was great - the sandwiches were really nice, scones were warm and not too big and the cakes were delicious. The tea was served on pretty Wedgwood china which just added to the sense of occasion. I would highly recommend.

    Delightful afternoon tea. Staff were friendly and efficient.My only criticism was the noise level in the room. A nearby table of 12 were very vocal and jolly so it was not quite the sedate surroundings that I had envisaged.

    Ideal location. Small, comfortable and friendly. Excellent food and good wine list. The lunchtime set menu is good value and lovely food. A haven on a soggy day and very convenient for Baker Street tube.

    We really enjoyed our afternoon tea experience at the Potting Shed. The restaurant is hidden away in the basement of the hotel so it has a cosy and intimate feel whilst still feeling bright and airy. The assortment of sandwiches and cakes was delicious. We were given additional sandwiches when asked for - all included in the price. My 7 year old son had his very own tea selection which was super - he had his own cupcake to decorate! A thoroughly pleasant experience, the occasion was to celebrate an 80th birthday - it felt very special.
