    Just not outstanding, we were given vouchers for Christmas - perfectly adequate, hot course good, scones good but the pastries were over sweet and ordinary. Honestly expected more, probably wouldnt go again as not 'special' as expected

    Experience was very disappointing. Food quality and taste was really not good and not what was expected for this establishment. Especially the Savory ones. Our table was too small to hold food for 2 people, and wait staff was constantly passing by in the small space between us and the adjacent tables, making our table shake each time. The noise level was high in this very large room.. Not recommended for a nice quiet tea as one would want to relax and enjoy.

    I've been coming here every year for the past 6 years every Christmas. It never fails to disappoint me, however, this year the state of the toilets were disgusting. I thought I was at Glastonbury. The 3 ladies toilets were nit flushing and the middle toilet was covered in sick. They need to be checked more often. I did mention to a waitress shen I came out and she said she would speak to a manager.

    While the service and the food was exceptional on our annual trip to the Diamond Jubilee Tea Room, it was obvious that it’s in desperate need of a facelift. The fabric on the backs of all the chairs is torn and dirty. The wallpaper is dated a peeling. It’s not shabby chic, just shabby. And the price has climbed and climbed over the years to an unsustainable price for me.

    Definitely NOT worth the 80 pounds per person. The food was okay; it was sooo busy and noisy. It wasn't very nice at all. For that money, go to the Ritz (two blocks down) for a more classy experience. I was so disappointed because I booked this for my birthday, and frankly, it felt like the Walmart of tea service.

    Went here for an anniversary day out. All items really good - we had the traditional and savoury afternoon tea between us. Would probably stick with traditional only in future. Doesn’t look like lots but it’s very filling. Some excellent cakes and patisserie but it’s all very pricey. Still the point is the overall experience which was really good.

    Overall the High Tea experience was average and did meet our high expectations for a place with so much history. Took us 23 mins to be seated after our 14:00 reservation (14:23). Waiters came to us about 15 mins later after we were seated. We were parched by then and had to wait for water. We got the sandwiches and other items first then the tea came about 10 mins later. Staff was very friendly and nice but it seems that they have operational management issues that can be improved on.

    I love afternoon tea especially when we visit in London. Thus I was so excited having afternoon tea at Fortnum & Mason for this trip however food and deserts were just average. Green looking desert had no taste and cheese cake was pretty but didn’t have any flavor of cheese cake at all. I rather go back to Savoy instead of having tea at Fortnum & Mason. Only thing I really liked was how beautiful of tea room was. Bright and very spacious. I bought lots of tea from the shop and go home to enjoy Fortnum & Mason tea with local favorite pastries!

    Always a good spot for afternoon tea. The food and tea are great quality and the service is good. If you want anything extra from teas to sandwich’s or desserts to go just ask and they are happy to accommodate. Would recommend making reservations.

    I am trying different places for tea each time I visit London. While I recognize that most places are under-employed (lacking employees) and servers are over busy, we did not get our food for 45 minutes after being seated and the tea arrived 55 minutes after we were seated. It may be a one-off but I won't be back. The sandwiches were okay but not worth the money, unfortunately.

    The Savoy, Ritz & Harrod’s afternoon tea are all much better overall. Though friendly & pleasant, the service was very slow (despite having a reservation). The chicken salad & egg salad sandwiches were good, but the cucumber sandwiches were too chunky. The trout sandwich was bland. The scones were dry, though the jams and lemon curd were excellent. We were a party of 7 and no one cared for the desserts-they looked fancy, but fell short on taste. The server never asked if we wanted more tea, which tasted terrific. Not a horrible experience, but definitely disappointing and not at all worth the cost.

    Very disappointing experience. An odd encounter to be coerced into a high tea setting at lunchtime when the expectation was otherwise. Perhaps the reservation process should have been more explanatory and precise. As standards go the presentation and quality was quite ordinary. As for value and service a great deal was left to be desired. Consequently satisfaction was not the end result of my visit. After sixty five years of going to Fortnum & Mason I cannot concur with a good lunch but I can say it was a very below par "high tea".

    We went for afternoon tea. The pastries were terrible with no balance only overly sweet and sugary. Almost all of the finger sandwiches lacked any real flavor. The tea was very good as were the scones. Considering it was over $200 USD for two people, that is very expensive tea and scones. The service was poor with us staring at dishes that needed to be cleared for a very long time.

    The service for afternoon tea was abysmal by Amaiya. She was whispering the entire time and didn’t offer us another tea despite being out, or the cake tray at the end. We had such an amazing experience at Fortnum & Mason the last time we went, but this time the service was poor. Given that there are so many other places for afternoon tea in London, would try something else in the future.

    My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary with afternoon tea. The space is just beautiful, the service was good , but we were a little disappointed in our choice of high tea. We were hungry so went for the more substantial choice of high tea with lobster omelet. It was very undercooked scrambled eggs with a few bites of lobster. The scones and desserts were beautiful and tasty and the tea was delicious. But I wish we had chosen the tea sandwiches instead of the lobster omelette! . But the experience is perfect for a special occasion.

    I booked this tea to celebrate after running at the London Marathon. The ambiance is vey nice, the food was not as expected. There were only few servings of pastries and the taste/flavor were not even that good. The only thing I really liked was the sweet scone. My son and I ordered the traditional and the savory tea. The lobster omelette was also just okay. I was really disappointed with the food. I was expected more for the price of £80/person plus automatic service charge if 12.5%, overall, for two people, we paid almost £190, which is overly expensive for a tea! So, unless you want to spend money for an average type of experience, I won’t recommend this place. It’s overrated. You can just go to other nice places which is so much cheaper and the experience is much better. Beware, when you book it, it doesn’t tell you the price accurately, but once you are at the place, you have limited options and the cheapest package is £78/person.
