The cakes were all very plastic or foam like..they didn’t taste like much at all. The scones still tasted like the fridge.
The service was very good and its a lovely setting.
Most amazing afternoon tea service is always impeccable. Love it there will always go back!
Overrated and overpriced. Food way too sweet.
Fantastic afternoon tea with kids. Definitely a family atmosphere, so might not be a top choice for a date, if you were going to take a date to tea.
This place tried hard, but honestly it fell way short for me. The sandwiches were stale, scones were hard and were not warm (obvi not baked fresh). The sweets were beautiful but were sickeningly sweet.
The best part was the tea. Great tea selection and it’s bottomless. Fruit tea and chocolate tea were so good.Service was also great...my server was super accommodating. And they let you take home a sweet at the end.
At 40 pounds it fell way short for me. It’s a kitschy tourist trap...go somewhere else for a legit London tea.
Wow! Is the first word which comes to mind. Can truly rekommend this to my friends and family. It was a great experience! Will try to visit you again next time we travel to UK and London.
I had already sent an email specifying our dietary requirements and was sent a list by the hotel stating what the selection of cakes and pastries would be on the day for the vegan option. The list included more than 5 different cakes and pastries. We understand that not all of these would have been served and neither were we expecing them all, however serving just a carrot cake, a bowl of fruit and a sorbet is really not what we were expecting and were rather shocked that that is all that was offered as a vegan option. Also it really was not very nice either. The carrot cake did not even taste like a carrot cake but rather a low quailty supermarket madeira cake. The fruit bowl was a total cop out as it shows no thought or skill and certainly is not something that should be served as part of an afternoon tea, especially in a hotel such as The Chesterfied and the vegan fruit scones tasted stale. In all honesty the sweets in the traditional afternoon tea were not anything special either. We all found them way too sweet and rather disappointing. The cherry cupcake was so dry. The apple pastry was inedible. The only positive is that the macaroon and cola slice were quite nice and the non vegan scones were nice too.
We were also charged a 12.5% service. The servers were all very friendly and pleasant however the service wasn't the greatest and definitely not worth the 12.5%. We had to call the servers over a number of times to top up the tea and sandwiches and were not asked at any point if we wanted refills. Also the food took quite some time to come out in the first place. All in all we spent around £230 at The Chesterfied and expected much better. I had already been to the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Tea there about 4 years ago and was very impressed with it which is why we were looking forward to this one and expected it to be of the same (or better) quality. However it was not. Also nobody has still replied to my email regarding my complaint.
This was our first time to London and Afternoon tea was a must! This definitely lived up to our expectations. The candy theme was perfect, and not too overwhelming. Great food and staff. Would highly recommend.
Birthday experience for my friend who flew all the way over from across the seas! It was amazing. The ambience, food, deco- everything was great. The staff seemed a bit frazzled and had to wait a bit for our order because it was so busy. But other than that, we had a great time
Great sandwiches- unlimited everything from m tea, to desserts to snacks. Plus kids get a teddy bear and everyone gets a bag of candy to take home!
Service was excellent; ambiance
Beautiful well done afternoon tea experience. Everything was delicious.
Brilliant. Well worth it!
It is a great place to go with kids and no feelings of anxiety of ruining the ambience - the staff are very helpful
We had a good time but the service was very slow. Staff were very friendly though
Just ok. Good service, nice stuff. The food was just ok. Nothing to remember the next day
Perfect for a fun mid-afternoon treat. The staff were very friendly and attentive and the food was delicious and great value for money with the option to order more of the pieces you liked. The candy station was also a fun element and provided a nice take home treat!
Beaucoup trop sucré nous n’avons pas pu manger les pâtisseries qui étaient écœurantes, payer 120€ c’est vraiment trop cher
Wonderful service and delicious tea and tea things.
Afternoon tea was lovely, the staff very friendly and helpful.. all staff are very child friendly so was great for my 3 year old.
Amazing afternoon tea, perfect for spoiling little people and grown ups a like.
Lovely atmosphere, staff welcoming, accommodating and friendly.
unfortunately we were disappointed with the whole event :(
I only booked this from the photos I found online from the charlie and the chesterfield (so themed around Charlie & the chocolate fty)
when we reached the venue we saw it was the original sweet shop instead and we wanted to leave and go to the mad hatters afternoon tea but it was too far and my daughter was hungry
the vegetarian options were limited - my mum doesn't like cheese and is allergic to egg.
so for £47 she got to eat an avocado sandwich and a cucumber sandwich. the cakes were just a bit too crazy and the only thing she liked was the scone
so for £47 a scone and a couple of sandwiches it was disappointing
for myself, i actually only eat chocolate based desserts, which they didnt have any of (they were all mixed with fudge or peanut butter etc) the only nice thing was a chocolate chip scone but could only eat 1 of those.
the sandwiches were nice for me
my daughters meal was £21 and she just had a ham, cheese and jam sandwich and a couple of cakes which again were too fancy for her to eat as she also only likes chocolate
it was very quiet and not very busy, and it just all felt a little dated for my personal taste.
the best thing was the service from the staff and the teddy and sweets my daughter got
My 7 year old daughter and I took a very good friend to afternoon tea for her birthday! The staff were amazing, which helped my friend feel really special on her birthday. The Sweetshop theme was a fantastic extra treat. Thank you.
Beautiful, food was delicious as was the tea. Everyone was attentive, but at the end of our tea it took a while to get the bill. We were chatting so no big deal, that would be the only negative.
Food was ok. Much better afternoon tea locations in London. Service was slow. Wouldn’t go again.
Alles wat je wilt van een afternoon tea!
Lovely High tea and a fabulous gluten free alternative. Delicious. Nice, attentive service. Very generous portions. Consider sharing one
Disgraceful afternoon tea. They offer a “winter wonderland” afternoon tea but run out of their Christmas blend by 3pm.
Sandwiches are tasteless, the tea selection is tiny and taste like burnt paper, the “pastries” are greasy mounts of sugar and cream without texture: the clementine macaron had the stickiness of soft caramel. Scones are underbaked and served cold, we had to ask to get clotted cream and jam. The service is appalling, the music is too loud and it’s impossible to have a conversation at a civilised sound level. Can't recommend it over many other hotels at a comparable price tag.
We went for my daughter birthday and it was amazing
Had a wonderful time at the chesterfield Mayfair. My daughters aged 11 and 9 absolutely loved it. The service was impeccable, the staff were so helpful and friendly. Food was delicious
We had an excellent time during our high tea. Though the tea is designed with children in mind, the adults enjoyed it as well. The staff was extremely attentive and well informed. The kids especially loved the "candy shoppe" style baked goods and the adults enjoyed the champagne and tea. We would highly recommend the experience to anyone of any age!
Great afternoon tea, fantastic staff and best of all....unlimited! Not to busy when we went but the food was delicious
When we booked we were aiming for the proper afternoon experience that was stated in the site . They had a function so we were seated in a closed stuffy library room . The lady who did our service had such a bad attitude , grumpy and sarcastic the whole time .
The service was great, quiet but comfortable atmosphere.
Great concept lovely room and amazing afternoon tea... but the waiters are a bit off putting!! You pay £40 for a special occasion and are treated like your a burden to them, no smile no service really! Had to ask for service a few times
Absolutely stunning! Great quality of service, food and lovely ambience.
The staff was friendly and professional.
We were disappointed with the dessert menu of the high tea. While they were presented beautifully they tasted so artificial and some were sickeningly sweet. I wouldn't come back even for the optical treat. The scones had a ways to go as well as it was more like jam and clotted cream on bread as opposed to scones
Sorry to say but we had really bad service, it was very slow and hard to get even a glass of water. The cakes were stale, really dry cupcake, would guess at at least a couple of days old and the scones were over cooked, they just crumbled to nothing on cutting. Don’t waste your money on this overpriced afternoon tea. Good theme idea but very poorly executed, such a shame.
We absolutely loved having a proper High Tea! The wait staff were very pleasant, answered questions, made wonderful suggestions. This was by far the best value in a High Tea experience!
