My granddaughter and I came to London for her high school graduation present and we had tea before going to the theater. We loved it.

There was hardly any food. It was beautifully displayed. It was a show- aesthetic. There was very little food, VERY little and it was okay. The tea was cold. The price was OUTRAGEOUS. The servers were very professional and kind but having a server describe a damn i cupcake for twenty minutes doesn’t justify charging $100 for it. The room is beautiful but that is what you are paying for. I ordered tea for two, two scones and tea and a glass of champagne and it cost me £259. I would NEVER recommend this restaurant. It was the most foolish waste of money of this trip.

Everything is ok, just didn’t like to see the waiters in a hurry and the room should have a better vision, I mean, the waiter station should be by the window and not in the middle of the room, that cuts your vision when you’re seated at couch, and it would be prettier if you have a whole vision of the room.

One of my favorite things to do is go to Afternoon Tea, after water, "tea" is my beverage of choice. The setting was lovely with intimate seating and the service most attentive. I loved all of the sandwiches and scones served, but what really put it over the top were the desserts served with inspiration from the artist Van Gogh; not only were they beyond beautiful, they tasted good too. There are so many choices for tea time in London and so happy I picked The Rosewood London. When I return to London, It may be hard to go somewhere else.

We went for afternoon tea in the Mirror Room. The ambience of the room was good but somewhat spoiled by the noise from a large number of uncontrolled small children. The afternoon tea is a structured set menu. Our choice of teas arrived relatively quickly but were lukewarm. The finger sandwiches were very average. A refill of hot tea was requested. Teapots were taken away....and not replaced for 35 minutes. Scones were tasteless and had been baked some time before serving. The theme of the cakes was Van Gogh. They looked pretty but were not appetising. I do wish hotels would just stick to baking good cakes rather than creating inedible patisserie art. All in all an expensive disappointment at £70 per head

Delicious and exciting sandwiches, scones so light they could have floated away, lemon curd both tart and sweet and the most beautiful Van Gogh inspired cakes. I will be back for the 7th edition and am
saddened to have missed the first five.

A great, all-round experience. Excellent food, service and presentation, in delightful surroundings. Helpful and knowledgeable staff, creative cakes, cracking selection of teas. Just be aware that it is not a budget option, particularly if the champagne option is selected, and that extra glasses of bubbly coast almost as much each as the tea itself. Otherwise, dive in, it's delicious.

The Rosewood continues to raise the bar when it comes to its Afternoon Tea. Having previously experienced its Art Afternoon Tea last year, this year's incarnation of the Van Gogh Afternoon is sublime and showcases incredible creativity and finesse in its execution.

Enjoying a few cocktails prior to afternoon tea is something I would highly recommend given the calibre of the mixologists the Rosewood has to offer. Dom Perignon is well paired with the Afternoon Tea and I would recommend taking the curated Tea pairing with the Afternoon Tea courses. Also, do consider ordering the Maori Blue tea - even if the supplement is on the high side, as the tea is one of the finest you can enjoy.

Really delicious food and not overwhelming in quantity (did not feel bloated or sick after). Kleti, our waiter had impeccable knowledge about the tea selection. I chose the tea pairing, which I thoroughly enjoyed. My husband and I also indicated that we were celebrating our anniversary and the restaurant added a special touch. Highly recommended for tea connoisseurs and someone looking for an elegant afternoon tea experience.

Really nice location and great service but compared to other afternoon teas it wasn't very good value for money. The Art cakes were impressive but we found it really odd that we were expected to share between us despite being 2 separate paying adults, and we have subsequently been intrigued by what would happen if there were 3 of you ( or you are alone) . To be honest we weren't really able to appreciate them as it felt like we had just had a round of desserts already ( the cakes and scones), and despite them offering to box them up so we could take them away this was again impractical given that we were going separate ways and actually trying to share them was difficult, as they were more mousse- like than cake-like. So a nice enough afternoon tea but overpriced and the whole cake-sharing thing made it seem weird and a bit of a rip-off.

I came with girl friends on a Sunday afternoon to celebrate my birthday. I had special food requirements which I advised by the time of booking and I was reassured on the day that the kitchen and the staff were well aware. The service was great and very attentive. They offered alternatives if there was anything we weren't keen on and also offered a refill of sandwiches. We all thought the chicken one was the best. Then came a round of scones (very delicious) along with some 'classic' desserts (Ferrero rocher, Jaffa cake etc) with the Rosewood pastry chef twist. Lastly was the contemporary art pastries which were as impressively looking as good. By then we were too full to enjoy them onsite but were offered to take them away which we did and so transported back home the pleasure and taste of this special afternoon tea. The setting was elegantly modern and quiet which allowed us to chat without having to raise our voices. A lovely afternoon tea with an arty twist that I would recommend to anyone to which it appeals.
