I go to a lot of afternoon teas and this one is probably the best one I have ever been to.

The food is absolutely superb. Beautiful sandwiches on fresh bread. The cakes look sensational and taste amazing and the scones are jam are beautiful.

My daughter who is 7 came with me and her afternoon tea was gorgeous. So much attention to detail.

The service is impeccable and you are offered more sandwiches if you would like.

Absolutely love it at the langham and will definitely be returning very soon

Beautiful venue and dining to match. The service is first class from walking into to the moment you leave. The food and fixtures were incredible and even little touches like the pianist playing the frozen songs for the children attending make this a special occasion must.

I brought the special price of 39pounds and was charged over 69pounds. Very expensive for a tea and I was was very upset-I didn’t want to make a fuss. So I paid-I want a refund for the misleading in the reservation and I’ll never use you again-I was taken to the cleaners.

A wonderful place for afternoon tea. Welcoming staff, not stuffy or pretentious. So much food—and delicious food at that. Plus, after sandwiches, pastries, champagne & scones, they send you home with a mini pistachio cake.

Excellent service, sandwiches were very good, some of the cakes were a little soap tasting. Carpet needs a clean but we thoroughly enjoyed it and will visit again.

Unfortunately we were not able to eat at Palm Court due to a function which was significantly overrunning. Which was disappointing as we were looking forward to our visit and being able to witness the live jazz band perform. However, the staff helped to arrange an alternative option by getting us a table at their other restaurant the Roux, which was by far one of the most exquisite meals I have sampled in London to date. The presentation, flavours and innovative combinations was a delight. Bravo to the chef and his team. The whole experience was phenomenal and a must for all to try. I will definitely be back very soon. Thank you for having us.

Fantastic experience. One of the best afternoon teas. And we’ve done many including The Ritz and Claridges. I’d say this is better than both of those. Especially on the tea and food as the menu was a little more inventive and tasted delicious

Quiet Ona Friday night but good food and charming service.

Take care at the Langham to book the restaurant you want - the website is not terribly helpful or informative

I was disappointed that the tea was ‘festive’ I’d had enough of turkey ham etc by the 5th. Last year when I had tea with you it wasn’t festive I’m sure

Thoroughly disappointed in this, I booked ahead and asked fir halal options however this was ignored when we were seated and we then had to go through it again, the options weren’t great and the service extremely slow, poor value for money I have had manier afternoon teas but this falls way of the mark, the only good thing is the palm court itself

Afternoon Tea on New Year's Day was a Christmas gift from me to my partner and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. Food and drink (champagne as well as tea) was first class and service and ambience just what you would hope for. Live piano accompaniment was delightful and we were both really pleased with the cake and scones to take away in The Langham boxes and bag. A lovely way to start 2020.

It was very drafty. We were sat by a table by the main door and it was drafty and cold.
Also rather than things coming together they came in courses with the scones last which seemed odd.

Excellent service. The ambiance was cosy and children friendly. We loved the food...such finesse in the choice of ingredients and présentation. The little details in the children’s menu make the experience memorable for a family afternoon tea.
