We initially were apprehensive about the venue .However we were thoroughly impressed from the moment we were seated till the moment we finished.
The service was impeccable and the 3 course high tea was excellent .We could not finish the pastries and cakes and readily doggie bagged the same .
Highly recommended!

The art afternoon tea is amazing. The mirror room is spectacular, and so is the food, in both taste and presentation. Highly recommended for a special occasion. Just make sure you don't eat for a few days beforehand, or you won't be able to finish all the wonders in front of you!

A delicious afternoon tea in sumptuous surroundings. The service was excellent with someone always at hand if needed, yet never intrusive. The surplus cakes were beautifully presented in a sturdy box to take away and were very much enjoyed the following day. Thank you.

Stunning location, wonderful teas and beautiful food! We were not wild about all of the sandwiches -- the egg was particularly rough. And the gorgeous finale cakes were unfortunately WAY too sweet. The scones course was the best one -- wonderful scones and decadent, yet fresh, petit fours & treats -- the lemon macarons were particularly impressive! Overall, we had a very nice time and were pleased with the experience. But next time we will likely seek out another spot.

Very posh hotel, ambience was nice but nothing special. The service was good, but a little bit forced. I liked the food overall, however I had expected more from the description, and from the price. The tea is served menu-style (i.e. sandwiches first, then scones, then cake) - we would have liked to get everything at once so you could mix sweet and savory dishes.

I found tea at Sketch to have far better flavors with the sandwiches and the desserts, more "wow" factor in the ambiance, hugely more options on the tea choices. Rosewood was just really nice and pretty but not a culinary tasting experience or a great tea listing. Given the choice I'd return to Sketch and skip the Rosewood. If you like looking at the fancy art desserts at Rosewood, bring your cellular and look at pictures but don't bother tasting.

Me and my friend came to have an afternoon tea at the Rosewood Mirror Room :) I am a huge fan of the Rosewood brand, and seriously it has never disappointed me! London property was not an exception! Excellent service, great ambience and a very creative afternoon tea set! We had a great time there! Also, a huge thank you to the sweetest Talia, which was very attentive and kind! We would definitely come back, thank you for the beautiful memories!

The afternoon tea was lovely and the attention to detail with the patisserie was very good and you should definitely go to try it. However the service was very slow, there didn’t seem to be enough staff - also as a minor annoyance they weren’t very attentive to what was going on around them at all times, for example we arrived before two couples but they did not look around and see us and sat the others first. It was very expensive and not quite justifiably, I think there are other equally as lovely options in London to choose from . The ambience was also lacking.

The Rosewood is a stunning hotel and a beautiful location for Afternoon Tea.

The service was charming, friendly and impeccable and the food was all delicious. The art theme for the final course was both gorgeous to look at and delicious to eat.

It isn’t cheap but no good afternoon tea in London is and whilst this isn’t something you’d do every day, as a treat it’s a lovely way to spend an afternoon.

The mirror room is amazing and beautiful! It has a nice ambience as well. I ordered the Van Gogh afternoon and the pairing cold brew. Overall it was all great. Every session has people explaining the dish. However, I still find it was a little pricy... it was worth trying but not daily routine haha

I’ve been to the ritz for afternoon tea a few months ago and the service at the Mirror room was far better. Sandwiches were good (salmon was a bit strong) , the scones were delicious, the mini cakes divine. The presentation of the sharing dessert was excellent. Though I think, by this point it was hard to appreciate them as we were so full.

There was hardly any food. It was beautifully displayed. It was a show- aesthetic. There was very little food, VERY little and it was okay. The tea was cold. The price was OUTRAGEOUS. The servers were very professional and kind but having a server describe a damn i cupcake for twenty minutes doesn’t justify charging $100 for it. The room is beautiful but that is what you are paying for. I ordered tea for two, two scones and tea and a glass of champagne and it cost me £259. I would NEVER recommend this restaurant. It was the most foolish waste of money of this trip.

Everything is ok, just didn’t like to see the waiters in a hurry and the room should have a better vision, I mean, the waiter station should be by the window and not in the middle of the room, that cuts your vision when you’re seated at couch, and it would be prettier if you have a whole vision of the room.
