As well as cakes from the in-house bakery, enjoy the signature Dorchester scones- made to a recipe unchanged for 50 years.

An all-day menu at The Promenade is filled with refined Dorchester classics, as well as extravagantly-topped pizzas, and delicious meats from the grill. For an indulgent start to the day, The Promenade in Mayfair also offers an exciting international range for breakfast.

    The Dorchester holds Special memories as I used to visit on Special occasions with my husband. Afternoon Tea at The Promenade was amazing as always relaxed atmosphere and delicious food. The Strawberries and Cream added because of Wimbledon was a really nice touch.

    Our waiter Francesco was very professional and a great photographer. He made ordering easy for my children and the experience relaxing. There was amazing drinks for the occasion of Wimbledon The tea choices were spectacular and enjoyed by all 4 of us. The sandwiches were delicious and plentiful. My 18 year old son was able to eat as many as he wanted. The pastries were the best part. They were fresh and very tasty. The waitor offered to pack up what we were not able to eat. This is my second visit to this restaurant and I would definitely come back a 3rd time.

    Flowers were beautiful. Bar staff and atmosphere great. Booking on-line was easy. Came for late afternoon Sunday tea. Felt rushed.

    I’ve previously had afternoon tea at the promenade and thoroughly enjoyed it. On this occasion, although the service was excellent, I didn’t find the dining experience quite as good or up to the standard of my last visit. My guests were underwhelmed by the experience, this was disappointing, as I had highly recommended the Dorchester and for this visit I would have to agree, it was below par and it didn’t feel like luxury.

    Before travelling, I booked a celebratory champagne afternoon tea for my wife, because The Dorchester has an excellent and long standing reputation as one of Londons top hotels and The Dorchester met both its reputation and our expectations. Great staff, very appropriate atmosphere, excellent service and I ask that our appreciation be passed on to Danny, Franscesco and Luca. A completely unexpected highlight was the pianist (thank you) playing Happy Birthday to my wife with a soft background chorus, at our table, by Franscesco & Luca, whilst Danny placed a 1 candle (very tactful) cake in front of her and my girl will never forget that. Well Done!! ...and yes, these two country mice from Victoria will certainly visit The Dorchester again. Thank You.

    we went for afternoon tea on Easter Sunday. it was fabulous, from the surroundings to the food to the friendly staff who couldn't do enough for you. our tea and coffee was replenished numerous times and we were asked if we wanted more sandwiches, which were lovely. The scones and cakes were amazing and we could not eat them all so we asked to take them with us. They put them in a lovely box for us to take away. What a lovely experience it was for a special occasion. I cannot recommend it enough!
