Brilliant afternoon tea, up there with the best in London. The staff were friendly and really helpful. There was a lovely selection of sandwiches and cakes. We loved the idea of having the cake trolley too. There was more than enough food and we had to take some away. We would return and recommend.

The Corinthia has a wonderful setting for Afternoon tea in the Crystal Moon Lounge, the room is delightful with a modern autumnal feel with lovely flowers and chandelier in the middle. The Piano set in the entrance adds a touch of class and the pianist was very good, clearly passionate about his music. It was our wedding anniversary and we were congratulated upon entry and kindly given a cake slice to celebrate which was a lovely touch. Even nicer was the staff taking it upon themselves to change the cake last minute when the fact that my wife does not like chocolate came up in conversation.

The sandwiches were good especially the egg and truffle. All meat and chicken is halal however there was a ham option on the menu, a little strange, would have been nice to have been switched to beef instead but this was a minor flaw. The scones were warm and sizeable served in a lovely box to keep them warm. The clotted cream was lovely and smooth and the rhubarb jam preserve was a great autumnal addition. The pastries were delicious particularly the Tartlet and Religieuse. In addition the sharing cake trolley was a unique addition with the Financiers particularly moreish.

There is a healthy selection of teas available. The Mango Noir was exceptional as well as the Mellow exclusive black tea, The team proactively provide recommendations which is nice and also took a genuine interest in how we were finding the teas.

Having experienced many afternoon tea in London the service was exceptional and up there with the best. The staff were warm, welcoming attentive and professional with a real focus on the little things to elevate and make the experience special. They even asked in a really friendly manner if we would like to take any additional new items home but we were stuffed (although I do regret it now! :).

For anyone looking at the top afternoon tea venues in London, Corinthia should most certainly be at the top of the list.

First time having afternoon tea here, I read the reviews and decided this would be the perfect treat for my mother’s 60th birthday and wow, what a great choice it was!

Food was amazing and there was plenty of it! Sandwiches were beautiful and the desserts were so delicious. Took some cakes home in a beautiful doggy bag. They brought out a little sweet treat with an edible happy birthday dressing and a sweet candle, it was a lovely extra to our special day!

Staff were AMAZING. We were treated almost like royalty. Friendly, very attentive and welcoming. Big thank you to Luca for looking after us, what a pleasant man and also the lovely pianist who welcomed us, had a lovely conversation and played happy birthday and many wonderful songs.

The room was beautiful. Wonderfully decorated.

The staff at Corinthia are what makes this afternoon tea so special. From Paulo, to the incredible pianist, and the serving staff the service was second to none. The service is completely personalised to each set of diners, something that we’ve not experienced in other similar establishments. The food was really great, with the option to take as much food as you wanted home. Already planning our return - can’t recommend enough

From the moment we stepped into the Corinthia Hotel we enjoyed ourselves! Peter, Violetta and Alessio served us afternoon tea and they made our celebration even better. They were discreetly attentive and knew when to top up and ask if we needed anything.


Afternoon tea was outstanding and we finished our day in the Northall Bar where Emanuele assisted us - again professionally discreet and attentive.

Great experience accompanied with live piano.
Attentive service, tasty gluten free selection although sandwiches were quite dry. Take away boxes should have some compartments though because unfortunately everything leaks through the gaps and the leftover desserts got ruined.

Afternoon presentation could have been better, we were expecting the sandwiches and scones to be served on a traditional afternoon stand. In terms of food, not sure if the bread was fresh and we were expecting smoked salmon and cream cheese sandwiches not smoked salmon with butter.

Lemon drizzle cake looked dry
