From the moment we entered the lobby, we knew this was going to be a special experience. Everybody was lovely and attentive. I want to give a special shout-out to Violetta, our server, and the piano player (forgot his name), who were friendly and up for a little chat. The ambiance was inviting and the food, including variety of sandwiches, desserts, teas and beverages, can’t be beat.

I’ve been to quite a few afternoon teas around London and I have to say this is one of the best. Food was lovely, scones nice and warm and perfect texture. Highlight is the cake trolley they bring around so you can choose whatever takes your fancy. Service was also excellent- attentive without being intrusive. Highly recommend

Lovely place and the setting is beautiful. Service was a bit stern but we made a real effort to warm them up and it seemed to work!
We were seated in the corridor which wasn’t great as it was such a special occasion but nonetheless, my Dad really enjoyed the experience.
The food itself: the new beef sandwich is very bland and the beef was tough. The scones were doughy. The strawberry jam and rhubarb compote were both delicious and the sweet good were all delicious too. So it was hit and miss but overall it was lovely.

I visited with a friend for an early birthday celebration and, as usual, the experience was exceptional across the board. I love the glamour of Afternoon Tea at Corinthia London - the service is always exceptional, the food divine, and interiors resplendent. I can’t wait to return! A particular highlight was trying the delectable range of handcrafted pastries - made with such flair - a true spectacle!

Started with cocktails in the bar followed by Champagne Afternoon Tea.
Beautiful hotel with a lovely ambiance.
Staff were friendly and attentive and keen to deliver a great customer experience.
The sandwiches were plentiful and tasted wonderful. Scones tasted fresh and delicious. Selection of cakes, all tasted amazing!
Served by Alex who was brilliant. Nothing was too much for him and all served professionally with finesse.
Our afternoon was enhanced by the lovely piano music coming from the lobby.
We will definitely be retuning.

Girls annual day out and catch up after lockdowns. Staff were exceptional and nothing too much trouble for them. When another couple of friends popped in we were swept up and relocated to another larger table. Special thanks to Taylor who made us so welcome and feel like celebrities for a day.

Lovely afternoon tea for a catch up with my daughters. The service was excellent, and the sandwiches, scones and cakes delicious. We really enjoyed the pianist in the background, not intrusive, but just enough to add to the atmosphere. Could thoroughly recommend the Corinthia for a special celebration.

Everything was amazing from service to the food. Was made to feel very comfortable and they did not skimp on the afternoon tea. We had an extra tray of sandwiches and was told if we wanted more cakes to ask. One of the best afternoon teas I’ve been too! Loved it!

There are various entrances to the Corinthia hotel and after gaining access it was not immediately obvious where to go for afternoon tea. Ended up asking for directions in a bar. Presented ourselves at the desk of the venue, we waited, but no-one came to greet us. We then went to the main reception to ask for assistance on the assumption we perhaps should have gone there first. We were escorted back to the same spot where we had previously been waiting and advised someone would be with us shortly. At this point we were feeling a bit frustrated and had not gained a favourable first impression. Eventually we were acknowledged and taken to a table, which although beautifully set, was situated on the edge of a busy thoroughfare. There was a steady stream of passing hotel guests and staff during the event, which did not lend itself to a relaxing atmosphere. Our order was taken promptly and the staff were pleasant throughout. The champagne, tea and sandwich selection were all fine. We changed tea and the milk was forgotten, so we had to ask for it. Scones and preserves were delicious, however, the patisserie offerings were too similar and mostly mousse based, albeit of different flavours. The confectionery was pleasant. We are afternoon veterans and have much experience of 5* venues in London. It was certainly not awful, but definitely not up there with the best. The outing was improved by having a lovely cocktail in the adjacent Kerridges Bar and Grill.

The BEST afternoon tea I’ve eaten in London and I’ve had a few! The delicious sandwiches and rhubarb jam being the stand out features.
The service was outstanding too. All the staff made us feel incredibly welcome and helped us celebrate a birthday in style!
