    Booked afternoon tea-but actually ate at 1. Good location-shame we went on a chilly, cloudy day. Enjoyed the atmosphere-friendly waitress-good food. Music was live, but gentle. Second cup of tea-no extra charge. Only downside was it was a bit draughty & toilets were really cold Would recommend it-good value for central London

    We visited on Saturday, busy venue but in same time we didn't feel rushed and all experience was very relaxing. Afternoon tea was just superb, fresh and tasty. Mini deserts, very well done to the chef.[$]We had to pay some extras but with deal overall its worth it every penny. Would recommend to everyone.

    Booked over a month ago which what seemed a very good value deal, afternoon tea and a glass of Prosecco for [$]. When arrived was greeted and shown to a very nice table. From there on the value of the experience dwindled. The menu stated you could either have the glass of prosecco or a choice of teas, not both, this was not the case on the original deal. Then the afternoon no tea arrived which I can only describe as the basic range from the low end supermarket, cheap white bread, cakes that can only be described as crumbs and the poorest quality scones I have ever had. Extremely disappointing, I was not expecting Savoy or Dorchester standards, but neither was I expecting to pay[$] for an [...]or [...]experience. Such a shame because the location is great and our waiteress was friendly.

    This was our 3rd visit to the Yacht London. We always enjoy to dine on this upmarket floating restaurant on the Thames (even on a cold damp miserable day). The food, wines and service were as always to to the highest standard.

    This is a must place to visit if you are eating out. My experience was at a business event, but I will return with friends. The last time I had fishcakes that good was in New York. Try it, you wont be let down.
