A very nice afternoon tea but not the best I have had. The cakes were too much the same and too many mousse cakes makes it very rich to eat it all.

セイボリーは普通だったが、スコーンは美味しかった。
メインのケーキ類は見た目だけでなく、非常に美味しかったです。
ほかのアフタヌーンティーではケーキ類が甘すぎることが多いが、ここは柚子が効いてるケーキもあり日本人にピッタリのアフタヌーンティーだと思います。

I’ve been to many afternoon teas and the one in Rosewood turned to be Very disappointing experience! The food was average and the waiters didn’t even know what they were serving. Embarrassing. Also tea was tasteless, basically hot water with a bit of flavor.
The most overpriced food experience I’ve had. Won’t be returning.

Whilst the service was impeccable and food great, it was quite disappointing when we booked the 12.15 slot for afternoon tea specifically for my 2 yO to meet Father Christmas, which was guaranteed. We were then told he arrives at 2pm and we would have to give our table back. The waiter tried is upmost to get this brought forward but no luck. When Father Christmas did arrive it was literally 4mins day at the table spoke then up and off. Trying to tell a toddler to wait for 50 mins (tea finished by 1.30pm and Father Christmas arrived at 2.20) was very difficult. If I had been told when I booked this was the case, then I would of asked for a 1pm slot or something. £230 is a lot of money for two adults and a toddler and she was dissoaonted which broke my heart!

The afternoon tea, sandwiches, cakes were amazing and service was impeccable - a special mention for Alfred who made our afternoon perfect and couldn’t do enough for us.
The Santa was the best Santa we have ever seen even I’m convinced he was the real one! Thank you for making it so magical

It was overall a good tea but the waiting staff removed the plates after the sandwich course before we had all finished

More attention needs to be paid to the cup of tea it went cold very quickly and more hot water cane from a flask that had a coffee smell and taint to it!

The sandwiches were lovely as were the scones

Truly faultless setting and food however, that was overshadowed by the awful service. When visiting a 5* hotel you expect perfection but sadly this was far from it. Staff ignored you when you tried to get their attention and service was incredibly slow. We were there for a birthday celebration but recieved a “happy anniversary” treat instead.

I felt the service was poor considering the price you then get charged for it. We were kept waiting when we arrived and then had to keep asking for things which I haven't had to do at other afternoon tea experiences. After looking forward to it for a number of months I must say it was overall disappointing and although the pastries are works of art it as let down by the ambience and service.

My daughter wanted to go to the Rosewood for afternoon tea with friends on her 17th Birthday. We arranged a cake for her but it did not turn up! When we found out about this upon picking them up we complained to the restaurant duty manager who said sorry but we were really busy! Still no birthday cake which must have vanished into thin air!

Doubly disappointed because of the lack of birthday cake and zero service recovery. The words unbelievable and gobsmacked spring to mind!

An early birthday treat for our sister, the 3 of us enjoyed the Art Afternoon tea which was carefully depicted by the waiter. He looked after us well and offered another round of our favourite sandwiches or cakes.

We even had a second tea choice and left well watered and fed after a wonderful afternoon of catching up in beautiful surroundings.

Thank-you Mirror Room at the Rosewood London!

Exquisite!! The sandwiches and pastries were delicious. The signature desserts were outstanding but the tea was the most wonderful thing I have ever tasted, particularly the Marco Polo and the Rouge Opera. My daughter was presented with a miniature birthday cake depicting a Banksy painting. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and extremely informative about the teas and pastries they were serving. I would highly recommend and will definitely be going back.

On the one hand it is just afternoon tea, but what an afternoon tea. Anyone who likes afternoon tea needs to eat here. From the moment we walked through the door they were friendly and took the time to explain the concept and options. The selection of tea is relatively small, but is actually a perfect selection with something for everyone. Then there's the food; the sandwiches were delicious, scones just melted in the mouth. And of course there is the deserts, and they look even better in person than in the pictures, and I'm glad to say tasted even better. If I had to find a negative point it was that we only got three deserts (one of each) between two of us, meaning we had to try and cut them in half which was easier said than done. But that was a minor point, and as they change the selection every 6 months, we will very definitely be going back.

Grand entrance, interesting room - albeit strangely dark and gloomy - downhill from there. Our first waiter was enthusiastic so I upgraded to ‘Wimbledon’ tea, and three in our party of five upgraded to iced teas. About two thirds of the way through, we realized we weren’t receiving any of our 15pound upgrades. We had to chase down another waiter, and then we received six glasses of iced tea and strawberries/cream during our dessert course - which we couldn’t finish or enjoy. There was no apology and no reduction in our bill - really poor showing. I would highly recommend the lanesborough tea over this experience any day.
