    Very friendly, warm and welcoming place to have a great afternoon tea for a wonderful price. They are willing to adapt their menus for allergies or intolerances without any problems. Very beautiful place in the heart of Covent Garden. Be sure to make reservations beforehand but it is surely worth it. Nice shop adjacent to it. Perfect moment!

    We had the Chelsea and the Picadilly-Afternoon-Tea and both were delicious! The service is a bit slow, but really friendly.

    We booked an afternoon tea and it was great. The cream tea was delicious and the generous slice of carrot cake too was very nice. The service was very good and very friendly.

    Much love to your "scone + cream"!

    Fantastic tearoom in the arches under Covent Garden. Met by friendly staff and given an excellent introduction to the menu. We had three of the staff serve us whilst we had the lovely afternoon tea and they were all extremely knowledgeable.
    My personal favourite was the passion fruit tart in the petit fours but I reccomend all the pastries.
    I found out they have a new store on the upper level and so my wife ended up leaving with an infuser mug and a few different teas. All round a great experience and a bit of a hidden gem!

    We had an afternoon tea here and it was delicious. The staff was really friendly and helpful when trying to decide what to order. Maybe a bit pricey but the overall value is very good.
