    Wonderful food, music and ambience. But refills on tea were a bit lacking. Tea got cold and no one came to check where we would like a pot of hot water. Staff were wonderful. Booking late in the day allows you longer to sit and enjoy your tea, as you are not rushed out for next booking.

    What a lovely afternoon tea! Such a beautiful room, and the waiters are so helpful if you have trouble deciding (there are LOTS of choices for food and tea). Pro tip: You can get more of anything you like! Have a favorite sandwich - ask for more! And don't worry - the tea is unlimited, too, so try a couple of different flavors. Tea is such a special treat, especially when visiting London, and F&M does it right!

    We had a nice afternoon at Fortnums, selecting a savoury and sweet afternoon tea so that we could try one another’s. The food was lovely, although a slightly wider sandwich selection would be great. My main takeaway, and probably the reason I’d opt to try a different afternoon tea next time, was it was hard to get a refill of tea. Our server was very nice but was either looking after too many tables or just not ‘on it’ and we felt like a nuisance constantly chasing. When we asked another server for more tea, our waitress made a comment about not needing to ask other servers which then made things a bit awkward!

    Lovely venue and we are regulars especially for a special occasion, unfortunately the service on this occasion was really poor and we felt ignored and had to keep prompting for tea and coffees we had ordered and had to pour our on champagne. Lacked in the 5 star feel due to this and after coming out having spent £250 it felt lacked the detail we know Fortnum and mason is usually known for, for us.

    Service wasn’t great for the cost. Food certainly doesn’t reflect the price. Though their scones are a pleasant surprise. The only thing this money is paying for is the experience if you haven’t done an English tea before.

    Marianna, our server was so kind and attentive. She really treated my mum and I so well. It was a Mother’s Day celebration and she gave us such special treatment and made my mum feel so special just as I had intended. She recommended we get one sweet and one savoury afternoon tea stand and both were great. A wonderful recommendation. Afternoon tea drinks and food can be refilled as and when you want or need it. The teas are beautiful and the live piano added to the warm and calm ambience. A beautiful setting and wonderful experience.

    We had amazing experience having afternoon tea at F&M’s. It’s was incredible, unforgettable and so classy. Can get enough of this place, so whenever we are around we just need to come back for another great culinary experience. Highly recommended for different menu options, tea range as well as assortment of Champagne.

    Came here for the experience and left very satisfied. We ordered the vegan tea and although the options are limited, the endless refills (on all minus the desserts) really make up for it. Service was impeccable and the atmosphere during Christmas was a plus. We left with 3 take away boxes filled with scones and desserts as they could not offer any vegan options from the dessert cart. Expensive but worth it.

    It was our first time experiencing afternoon tea and it definitely won’t be our last! The food and ambience was definitely top notch, but what brought it over the top was our server, Marianna. She was the BEST!!! She was so friendly and always made sure we had everything we needed and more! We left there with tummies stuffed and hearts full. She deserves 10 stars! 😊⭐️
