Quiet Ona Friday night but good food and charming service.

Take care at the Langham to book the restaurant you want - the website is not terribly helpful or informative

I was disappointed that the tea was ‘festive’ I’d had enough of turkey ham etc by the 5th. Last year when I had tea with you it wasn’t festive I’m sure

Thoroughly disappointed in this, I booked ahead and asked fir halal options however this was ignored when we were seated and we then had to go through it again, the options weren’t great and the service extremely slow, poor value for money I have had manier afternoon teas but this falls way of the mark, the only good thing is the palm court itself

Afternoon Tea on New Year's Day was a Christmas gift from me to my partner and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. Food and drink (champagne as well as tea) was first class and service and ambience just what you would hope for. Live piano accompaniment was delightful and we were both really pleased with the cake and scones to take away in The Langham boxes and bag. A lovely way to start 2020.

It was very drafty. We were sat by a table by the main door and it was drafty and cold.
Also rather than things coming together they came in courses with the scones last which seemed odd.

Excellent service. The ambiance was cosy and children friendly. We loved the food...such finesse in the choice of ingredients and présentation. The little details in the children’s menu make the experience memorable for a family afternoon tea.

The overall experience was good, the food was excellent as well even if we thought that the scones were a bit undercooked...
We were mainly disappointed by a girl who was helping our waiter. She was new ( she told us so) and made few silly mistakes. First of all she did not know were the toilettes were when we asked and then, when she went to refill the teapot with more tea, she poured the tea for us straight away without waiting for the tea to be infused properly so it was like drinking hot water with no taste. I think that she needs more training about basic customer service and to use more her common sense.
The room was also too dark and it missed a bit of ambiance.

The sandwiches and scones we're good, not great. My husband and I did not enjoy the pastries. Also the service by the waitress was awkward and cold. The gentleman at the front desk of Palm Court was very nice and helpful.

Beautiful surroundings in this elegant hotel. Subtle pink tones with hint of gold. Understated Christmas decorations. The height of sophistication. Impeccable service except for a slight faux pas when my plate was removed whilst others were still eating. This was quickly rectified so I was able to ask for more finger sandwiches. Delicate and traditional British flavours. Lovely scones and patisserie. Never ending tea and a glass of Tattinger. Wonderful seasonal treat. Would definitely recommend.

My husband and I booked festive afternoon tea here for Christmas Day. We really enjoyed ourselves. The wait staff were attentive and friendly, and the tea, sandwiches, pastries, and scones were delicious! We came in the middle of a walking tour, viewing several hotels with holiday decorations, so we were dressed casually but we were made to feel welcome as we were. The main person who waited on us, a lovely lady who was originally from Florence, Italy was delightful.

We thought the bill was £124 we were charged £165 very over priced

No Christmas decorations, very poor experience, the Ritz is cheaper and much better, I wouldn’t recommend and will not be returning

Many Thanks

Splendid venue, excellent food, fantastic live music, which is not too noisy, even though we set next to it. We particularly liked the solo piano player. The only BUT would be that the 1.45h seating time felt a little short after all.

Fantastic location, great food and selections and choice of teas. Impeccable service, excellent, low key but efficient and friendly. Plenty of space between tables. Not rushed or hurried to go because of time limit. Would recommend to everyone for a special event, but you get what you pay for.

There are a few items that are truly remarkable though majority was just ok ish. Service sometimes attentive other times staff seemed too overwhelmed to care.

The biggest turnoff was the restroom down stairs. One stall was not flushed and stank awful, another had empty toilet paper roll on the floor and a nasty fat fly buzzing about. I mentioned this disgusting condition to the manager at the restaurant who said she would report to hotel management. When I returned to my table I was not able to finish the rest of my food

We had a fantastic time. Nina looked after us and was friendly, polite and very charming. The atmosphere was really lovely and the Xmas decorations gave it all a magical touch. The afternoon tea itself was delicious and Nina recommended the perfect blend of tea to accompany each course.

Absolutely amazing, what an incredible experience. Went for my partners birthday and she has been to most London hotels for afternoon tea and rated this the best of the bunch, even better than The Ritz.
If you are looking for a special experience then go to The Langham!

Such a beautiful hotel. Service was absolutely fantastic and Christmas sandwiches were a delightful change from the normal afternoon tea. The only fault was the tea. After 5 minutes when it was poured it was cold and stewed, so had to request a fresh pot which was not a problem. Cakes were delicious but a more festive looking cake would have made it even more festive. Just being picky though!
