Afternoon Tea

Please rest assured that we will reopen as soon as possible and will be delighted to welcome you back when that day comes.

In the meantime we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a more prosperous New Year.

Kind Regards,
Palm Court Restaurant

Felt neglected by staff, never offered refill on tea or the food. Staff didn't clear our plates and afternoon tea stand was mainly used for us to put our dirty plates on. Didn't feel like a festive afternoon tea especially one for £78 per person no 5 star service

The portion sizes were a lot smaller than previous years and i felt the cake quality and imagination behind the presentation had dipped. It was all quite alot more rushed than normal with everything coming out very quickly so you didn’t have as much time to just relax as previously. Still overall a great afternoon tea but not quite a good as it once was!

The Christmas Afternoon Tea was the perfect way to start feeling really festive this year! From the decor, to the food, to the attentive service, it had just the right amount of sparkle - thank you to all of The Langham team.

Lovely afternoon tea. Table are nicely spread apart so you don't hear anyone else's conversation. Waitress was friendly but as it got busier it was harder to get her attention. She didn't offer us any refills of the food as they used to. We had to ask for more sandwiches. Overall it was lovely to go afternoon tea as it made things feel a bit more normal.

We went for the afternoon tea for my Aunt's birthday. They were really kind to have created a little dessert plate and the pianist played happy birthday. We also required a gluten free menu, and they were able to accommodate that. It's wonderful setting and experience for a celebration. There was a Christmas theme to our afternoon tea which was a nice touch. I found the scones quite crumbly, but the rest of the afternoon tea was spot on. Good selection of tea and drinks. The service could have been a bit more attentive, we sat at the table for at least 15-20 mins without any water or our flutes topped up. When we asked they did it straight away, but it's just a minor point that I feel is worth mentioning for the service you would expect.

Everything was fantastic but £13 for a glass of sparkling wine is too much, especially if one person paying the bill for a group of three. But it’s lovely to have, so we wouldn’t not order it with our tea.

This was an awesome place. The food was original, tasty and fresh. There was a live pianist playing soothing Christmas music in an elegant and styled room. The staff were warm, accepting and extremely pleasant. The Christmas decorations were cheerful and prominent but not overly attention-stealing. The atmosphere was perfect for sitting down with someone to enjoy their company while being immersed in a rejuvenating setting. They were very accommodating of our preferences and attendant to our notes of a birthday and a distaste for mayo. Highly recommended.

We booked lunch. Afternoon tea menu for kids , Fries for my daughter ;Ceasar salad and drinks. Food and service was outstanding, except my daughter’s mini sandwiches ... I was not expecting ham and bread only; cheese and bread only....however she quickly forgot about that when the desert was served, she enjoyed it. The pianist played Yann Tiersen..... and that made everything PERFECT!

The venue was excellent and the food tasted great, just a shame the food portions were so small. The small size of the scones and cakes made the experience not good value.
The dress code was not enforced as some customers were dressed in sweat shirts.
For the price we expected more.

A great dining experience as always, have missed eating since lockdown, it’s unfortunate with the 10pm restrictions you cannot enjoy the ambience of the place as much as before, hopefully that will change with time. Overall great food, great service, understandably prices have gone up to cover costs of loss of business as far less tables due to covid restrictions so something to be aware of, however it’s still is a place I would re visit again and again .....

Absolutely loved it, staff were friendly, happy to be back and knowledgeable and kean to show their knowledge of there ingredients or types of teas to try. Even the pianist playing 80s sitcom themes and trying to guess what it was, asking the staff if they knew, they were happy to interact

Throughly enjoyed our later celebrated wedding anniversary

They haven't miss a beat from their Covid pause. Food, staff, smiles all in good order. The wine list was a bit lacking, but the value of the wine was exceptional. Food selection and quality as expected. Cheers to another re-opening success.

My First Afternoon tea experience at age 35 and I was thoroughly impressed staff were top quality the Barman in the cocktail bar was full of knowledge and was very friendly. The only downside to my experience was the drilling during tea but apart from that I enjoyed myself and I will be back!

I went to The Langham about 18 months ago and it was amazing - great food, great atmosphere and great staff. I was disappointed this time. The lady serving us was lovely but there was no ambience (it was half empty) and the food was a bit of a let-down compared to previously. Certainly not worth the price tag. And the champagne by the glass was massively over-priced. Not sure I’d go for afternoon tea there again in the near future.
