My husband and I were in England for our 25th anniversary-it was amazing and elegant-a wonderful, memorable special experience!
Good service . Tea and food were deliciously
Overall a good experience.
The staff seemed a bit rushed and not as attentive
Best service ever!
On the more expensive side for afternoon teas but certainly a better experience than most. Service very good though we had to wait a couple of times for supplies to arrive. Food very good especially the gluten free option, which one of us had. No limit to replenishment but they couldn't provide us with a further supply of standard cakes as we had originally asked for the savoury option. All in all, very good.
Food definitely overpriced! Not good for the money you spend!
Not as good as it usually is. Food service was patchy, lots of items failed to arrive and the wait for these items was long and required asking staff again. The table we were allocated was not relaxing, staff constantly bustling past on all sides. Shame as we love this place for tea and go at least twice a year. Hopefully it will be back to its splendid best soon.
I’ve done many high teas in London (including at Sketch, the Ritz, Mad Hatter) and this was by far the best. The service is great and the staff really want to make it a special experience. When you think tea & tradition, you think Fortnum’s! I will recommend no other place when anyone asks where to do tea in London
A wonderful way to celebrate a special birthday. Tasty, delicately presented foid.
Amazing experience! The service was quick and attentive. The food and tea were delightful. Expensive but worth it for a special occasion, which this was!
Went to have afternoon tea on Saturday, the food was good, however, the services were poor. Difficult to get attention from any waiters or waitresses. Also, we takeaways some desserts and the waiter just put everything in the bag, so it was all messed up and cant really have it at home...
Had the most amazing time and the service was amazing - I will be going back
The salon is beautiful, tables are well spread out. The choice of teas was spectacular and the cakes were delicious. The scones were warm, crisp in the outside and soft in the centre with clotted cream and jam. Quite heavenly. Service was discreet and very helpful what a wonderful special occasion!
It was an experience to try on my list and was overall deceived! Way to pricey for what they presented! Sweet extremely sweet! Paid for rare tea and got 2 different ones without any taste so stick with the general one, don’t pay for rare teas, not worth it!
Simply fantastic. The ultimate in professionalism.
One of the best afternoon teas I have had. Staff were polite and attentive. Service and food was great. We were asked if we wanted extra of any of the food and food options and portions were very good. Would definitely recommend and would do it again! We came for my sisters birthday and staff had brought out a cake with a candle which was a great touch, so welcoming!
Plenty to eat. Friendly and helpful staff. Would recommend
Fantastic staff and service
A fantastic start to our day out in London
Fabulous day - great service, food & atmosphere! !
Un excellent moment « so British », un service attentionné et cette impression agréable d'être un peu hors du temps.
Fantastic afternoon - great food great ambiance just too full when we left! Will definitely be back for the next special occasion.
Service was not as good as we have had in the past. Will go somewhere else next time for afternoon tea.
Jose was the best waiter with superb suggestions for our tea. He was so attentive. Food was delicious in a comfortable environment.
Quality of food was very disappointing. The service was not what one would expect at this price point. The service was inattentive, indifferent, and disappointing. I would not recommend this to others.
the enviorment is nice but the service here is quite terrible, the management should be improved a lot!! highly not recommond any visitors come due to it’s pricey but without comapreable service, totally not worth this price. Any staff approach table until we stand up to call them, nither when we arrive nor we finished our dishes. Tea is good but foods just normal.
What a special day - My oldest friend visiting from Perth Australia - she wanted a perfect decadent Afternoon Tea and that exactly what we got a Fortnum and Mason.
Pure delight !
Cakes or sandwitches equally good at some supermarkets.
We were visiting London for the day and were told we mustn’t miss tea at fortnum and mason. We had a great time
Lovely food and tea. Staff happy to give additional servings of food. Staff also happy to package up any left overs. Highly recommend!
Was amazing and so much food! Delicious
It was a perfect British tea to celebrate the end of our vacation. Fortnum & Mason has great shooing too!
Afternoon Tea was lovely. The Diamond Jubilee Tea Room provides the perfect ambiance. The food and tea were delicious. I had the afternoon blend and the vanilla nougat. The coronation chicken sandwich was especially tasty. The only disappointment was our service. Although we were happy to relax and enjoy our time, the overall attentiveness and timing could use improvement. Regardless, our experience is one that will remain with my daughter and me for a long time as one of the best parts of our visit to London. Make time for the experience, and save time to browse and shop at Fortnum and Mason after tea. Their customer service is top notch!
Arrived a few minutes late due to bad traffic in the area. Waited a few minutes to be seated which was a bit annoying but once seated we were very impressed with the service and food. The waiter was excellent and offered us extra sandwiches and cakes which was very welcomed and then boxed up the remaining food in our table plus an extra slice of cake to take home.
Made me feel like royalty. A true high tea London experience.
Great service! Loved it!
We had afternoon tea. Our server was condescending and the service was extremely slow. Guests who arrived after us were served well before we were served. Talking to him was very awkward.
He brought two plates of desserts for three of us. We shared those and asked him to bring the third serving of only two of the desserts. He seemed to disapprove when we asked him to include them in our “to go” container. We should have received three of each dessert from the beginning rather than be told by our server that we should try them before eating anything else so that we could decide whether we wanted the third serving which of course we paid for even though they were not served to us.
The food was excellent. The tea room exquisite.
The perfect place to retreat after a busy day shopping. Even when you are on your own the music, the gentle conversation and of course the lovely afternoon tea lift your spirits .
It was our first real afternoon tea and i have always imagined how nice it would be. So during this stay in london we have finally booked it. It was all very nice but i‘ve missed a little something for that price. Maybe the atmosphere got a bit lost because of so many tables? But we have enjoyd it a lot. Thanks for a great service
