    We really enjoyed fresh bread and our mains, however deserts could be improved (ice cream was too hard/dessert selection) Also, portion size for mains could be bigger and more than 1 piece of bread could be offered.

    I had aubergine pasta and it was delicious ( I would suggest more vegan/vegetarian options).

    The Atmosphere, service, music selection and live music was excellent.

    The dining room was too hot.

    Nice location and cricket theme but disappointing scones (undercooked on the inside and crunchy on the outside)

    The place is cozy intimate setting well curio edited theme around the sport cricket. The staffs however are quite disorganized. Seems like they have no table assignments because after we gave our orders to the young gentlemen, a lady comes to take it again. Missed to bring one of the tea and forgot all about the champagne but got billed for it. Plus we got charged for the tea as extra supposed to be included to the menu. Food is just ok.

    I went there for an afternoon tea… The area, the environment, the hotel and restaurant decoration are a real success.
    Unfortunately food served with afternoon tea was much disappointing to me. I don't like truffle and they was some in the egg sandwich. There were to much sweet things and not enough salted savories to me… All the more than I found patisseries basic and rough. Scones, clotted cream and jams were alright… But I am a bad judge because I think I will never match with this "afternoon tea" concept (I eat breakfast, lunch and dinner ;-). The green tea was excellent though !

    Lovely afternoon tea for a family birthday, wonderful that the children had a different menu, if you didn't like something they swapped it for something else once you had read the menu. Lovely, welcoming staff, very friendly. Nice atmosphere and decor in the building. Very well priced. Highly recommend

    Extremely basic food (nicebut nothing at all imaginative), lovely scones (favourite part), unimpressive desserts, and kids cupcake came with vile looking and tasting icing (chemical red and vile dark sage green - likeChristmascolours gone wrong - and it was April). Suggest a lovely yellow and soft blue for future. Ambiance okay but completely empty. Wouldn't go back.

    Fantastic service, friendly and helpful, afternoon tea excellent (although the scones were a bit dry)
    Interesting, cosy venue, only a stone's throw from Baker Street Station. I would definitely go again!
