It was a very pleasant afternoon but nothing special, we have had the sunday brunch at the Landmark which was unbelievable, such wonderful attention to detail and a glorious abundance of food but this afternoon tea was fairly average, petty details like only two jams ... why? For the price charged you could put out all the jams and more but it felt a bit like endless finger sandwiches and not to much in terms of cakes and treats, the plate of cakes were a bit tired looking, it was a hot afternoon but they seemed like they had been out of the fridge for a while, unfortunately we ended up feeling a little like it wasn’t worth the money.

Booked this as a special anniversary surprise. The teas and the desserts were very good but the rather boring and non creative sandwiches were not up to the standard of a 5 star hotel. For the expensive price (£45, or £52 with glass of Champaign) we felt a bit sad. It is nice that they offered sandwich “refills” but again while helpful if you are hungry, it does not scream high end to me. The harp player was lovely (even though we were expecting piano). The Wintergarden itself is an amzing venue but bear in mind that all afternoon tea guests are crammed into one corner rather than using up the whole space. I am thankful for being child friendly though. Overall nice but too expensive and lack of special to go back.

Environment is perfect. Suitable for taking photo. But the dessert is quite normal. Scones are not good. In Easter holiday, we have to order the afternoon tea with a champagne, despite we don’t want to drink.

I visited the Landmark hotel with my best friend for her birthday and had the afternoon tea. The decor in this hotel is absolutely stunning and makes you feel like you're somwhere exotic and not in London. The staff were attentive, as soon as we got to the restaurant we were shown to our table and given menus to decide on tea we wanted, our sandwiches were bought out and so were the pastries. Presented beautifully and tasted amazing. Sebastian was an amazing waiter and also took lovely photos of us. We felt welcome comfortable and had a fab time! I would most definitely recommend the Landmark!

Initially sat at a table that had a draft, but then asked to move and was given a much better table. Have been here a few times before for tea (last time about 2 years ago). Love the ambiance, but this time the scones and tea / food were significantly better that last time. Will definitely be returning sooner than 2 years.

They even got us sooner than the actual booking hour, which was very good for us. They do really pay attention to your allergies and to be pleased with their service. A bit over priced to be honest for a afternoon tea party, but in rest totally recommend

Lovely ambiance (Palm trees, etc.) Last year we had a fabulous experience of afternoon tea, but this year not so good. Extremely expensive (compared with last year) Ithink we paid £45 each last year and this year it was £58. And we were told we had to have the Festive Tea, which included Champagne or Fruit Cocktails, which we didn't want or need before an Afternoon Tea. And at the end 12.5 service was added on!!
The sandwiches were served on individual plates for each guest, instead of on a tiered central plate for us to help ourselves - much more elegant. The same with the scones and with the patisseries. And both the latter were put on the table together, when there wasn't much room for all 6 plates (we were 3 people and we each had a plate of scones and a plate of patisseries). The gluten-free options were delicious, but instead of mini-sandwiches, I had half-rolls, which filled me up too much before I had even started on the scones or patisseries. All in all not such a good experience as last year at around this time. Probably because it was a Saturday, whereas last year it was a weekday and less crowded.

We were in the Winter garden, which is stunning, for the Afternoon Tea - ambience is lovely and so amazing with the palm trees and everything else. Also, the desserts were quite good.
Unfortunately the selection of sandwiches as part of the Afternoon Tea was fairly average and did not stand out at all. Compared with other places in London for Afternoon tea, I must confess the sandwiches left me quite disappointed.

I went for afternoon tea with my friend and really enjoyed it. Although I wasn't too bothered my friend would of liked the scones and sandwiches to come together. Also when the scones did arrive they were cold.

Aside from that the service was very good in fact was really impressed by this. Plus the location and ambience of the place was beautiful.

Overall a lovely place to have afternoon tea. One other thing I liked was the choice of extra sandwiches and bottomless tea.

Would definitely recommend this place others. Thanks for looking after us and creating a special memory for us.

Hubby and I are visiting London for the very first time and decided to indulge ourselves with an experience of authentic British afternoon tea. Staff found out this was our first try and didn’t show any contempt. (Maybe I was paranoid but I did feel awkward and embarrassed to admit that we’d never done this before) Staff members were great, so helpful, polite, delightful and considerate. Without them this experience wouldn’t be a great one. We loved the afternoon tea and wish to come back soon. Btw, the tea (I had organic rose Grey) and sandwiches? Insane! They were absolutely wonderful and you would find yourself keep going even you already ate too much!
