We were there to celebrate our son’s 6th birthday. Our server, Santiago, was very attentive and provided excellent service. Thank you so much for the fabulous family experience, Santiago. Will definitely see you another time when we visit London again.

Had an Afternoon Tea in a beautiful and elegant place with the piano playing in the background. Served by a lovely waitress. Delicious and fresh sandwiches. Crispy, warm and fluffy scones - one of the best I've tried. Plus a selection of jams that weren't too sweet, just perfect. Definitely will come back!

A friend and I had the Nutcracker afternoon tea on a Saturday afternoon. We arrived an hour early and they had no issues with seating us early which was great. The service was brilliant and everyone was so friendly. We were not rushed in the slightest and ended up being there for 2.5 hours. The food was also refillable, however we only asked for a couple more sandwiches as there was so much food to start with. Reasonably priced considering the amount of food, the service and the location. Very impressed!

beautiful atmosphere and view right across from Hyde Park. Excellent service. The staff made us feel very special, as one should at an afternoon tea. Highly recommend!

This is my fourth visit and it never disappoints! My server changed twice due to large groups, but I still received great service. The food was excellent. The tea sandwiches and the open face sandwiches are refillable. Scones and desserts may be packed to take with you. The nutcracker tea had a nutcracker tree ornament on top, which is also yours to keep. I prefer to eat later in the day, closer to their last tea reservations, because the food really fills you up. As an American, it’s a delicious taste of a British tradition, that provides a large meal.

Food was good, yellow rose and pong ping tea we're disappointing. Scones were cold by the time we got to them. We got three types of jams for scones but not the strawberry jam. The waitress was going to bring one more pot but never did. Then we asked for more raspberry jam but received strawberry jam instead. The waitress never offered to top up our tea pots and asked in the end but it took long time as it was busy. We're asked if we wanted more sandwiches. We wanted one of each. The waitress replied with a suprise tone and looked surprised. We didn't like her attitude. Only when we were ready to leave we were offered cakes to take home. They should have been part of the afternoon tea

This was my first trip to London, so naturally I wanted to experience a true afternoon tea. The park room was everything I hoped for and expected! The selection of teas were wide and the ones that we selected were amazingly delicious. The food, though simple in the form of scones and tea sandwiches, were delicious and plentiful. We each left thoroughly full, which I had not expected. The black currant jam was delicious. I wish I had been able to bring it home with me. Our server, I believe her name was Giorgia, was delightful and extremely informative with all of our typical tourist questions. One such question was is it proper etiquette to eat the sandwiches with a knife and fork as I saw some people doing or with your hands. She said since they are finger sandwiches they’re actually meant to be eaten with your hands. If you’re in London, definitely give this place a try. you will not be disappointed.

We had a lovely experience! I wasn’t sure how my 2 year old would handle an afternoon tea, but we made sure to go on the early end before the crowds hit and were delighted as to how accommodating they were of us. I picked the Park Room specifically because they offer a children’s tea menu, even though my daughter wouldn’t partake. Lovely service, delicious food and tea, and a beautiful view of Hyde Park from our table!

This was a wonderful experience, our server Mariya was beyond helpful & accommodating. She went out of her way to make the day pleasant. All the staff was amazing. You can't beat this restaurant's ambiance, piano player in background, china setting, it all works for a relaxing, enjoyable afternoon.

I enjoyed my afternoon tea. The sandwiches were tasty, I enjoyed the scones and the blackcurrant jam was fantastic. The chocolate pastry was wonderful, the others weren't as good and easy to miss or another scone or sandwich. Nice touch to be offered to have a slice of cake there or to take home. High price will probably put me off visiting again but I had a good time.

Es stimmte einfach alles. Hervorragender Service, fantastische Qualität der Speisen und es wurde immer wieder etwas angeboten....wirklich der beste Afternoontea den wir je hatten. Zwar teuer aber jeden Cent wert!! Teilweise sogar mit Livemusik vom Flügel

This was a long time coming. We have been to quite a few afternoon tea visits at other hotels, so we thought we would try one of the most famous places in the city. It did not disappoint! Everything about the experience was great, and would recommend it to anyone. The only downside was the price, it could have been a little cheaper.

The seating hostess was appalling. Apparently, her system did not show our reservation and she treated us like criminals, although the restaurant was half empty. She made us wait for 15 minutes (even though we were on time), and when she finally ushered us in, left us standing in the middle of the salon, while she was seating someone else. The rest of the service was ok, but the initial impression left a bitter taste in our mouths for the rest of the afternoon. Pity.
