    The tea bar was lovely, you can choose any tea from Whittards range. I choose Darjeeling to go with my afternoon tea, which was fantastic. The food was lovely and the choice was excellent with sandwiches, scones, and a selection of mini cakes. I will definitely be returning on my next visit to London.

    As soon as we arrived we felt welcome. The place was crowded but having booked our table it was not a problem. The food was good, good quality and they were happy to accommodate our request we sent via email in the morning. Tea selection was pretty wide. Overall, a very good experience

    My best friend and visited this weekend to belatedly celebrate our birthday’s, which fall a week apart in January. We were greeted warmly and seated quickly for our booking. The vast tea menu was explained with a few lovely recommendations. We were treated a lovely surprise of candles in cakes in addition to our ‘Piccadilly afternoon tea’; which we thought was a really nice touch. Thank you to Luca and his team. We had a fabulous time!

    The afternoon tea was lovely. The staff were amazing. Our reservation went from 4 to 5 people and they were very accommodating considering most of their tables are meant for 4-2 people.

    It was a lovely afternoon tea experience for great prices compared to other places in the area. With the option to have just sandwiches and scones or cakes and scones it's perfect for a lighter afternoon tea after Christmas! Full cream tea available too.
    Lovely teas and wonderfully friendly staff. I would recommend for both tourists and Londoners alike.
