Boozy Tea Room
2nd time visiting, the service was really slow and very expensive. Given how long a round of drinks took we tried to order double so we could take one in the show with us. Only to be told we can only order one at a time.
Such a shame as last time it felt much more attentive which makes the experience much more worthwhile
Staff extremely unfriendly poor atmosphere had one drink then left
Hi Tara, Sorry to hear that your Boozy Tea Room experience wasn’t up to your expectations. We would be interested in hearing more detailed feedback about your evening so that we can improve our service. Please feel free to email us! Kind regards, Portia (Host)
It was lovely to sit and have a quiet drink before Magic Mike - We didn't eat but enjoyed a cocktail or two. The decor was stunning. Service was great.
Hi Lynette, thank you for your wonderful review! We’re glad to hear that you enjoyed your Boozy Tea Room. Please visit us again soon! - Portia (Host)
We had a great time in the Boozy Tea Room before attending the Magic Mike Live show. The cocktails were delicious and certainly not skimping on the alcohol, served in lovely glasses too which made them feel really indulgent. I've marked food as one star but only as we didn't have any! I think it could be more atmospheric but there was music playing and the room and bar are nicely decorated, it was just missing something but can't put my finger on what. The hostess was lovely, really friendly and welcoming. Would visit again.
Hi Aimee, thank you for your wonderful review! We’re glad to hear that you enjoyed your Boozy Tea Room experience and we appreciate your feedback. Please visit us again soon! - Portia (Host)
Service was great and the food was fab..
We were surprised by how reasonable the price were too..would be sure to return
Great meeting point for the start of a fun evening. Superb friendly service. Well worth a visit.
We only had drinks but it was a lovely area to sit, talk and drink before the show!
Hi Kellie, thank you for taking the time to write a review! We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your Boozy Tea Room experience. Please visit us again! Portia (Host)
Visited with friends for my birthday, pre magic mike show. Service took a little while at first as no one came to take our order. Food and drinks all arrived fairly quickly following order and it was very handy that the bill was split so we could each pay separately. However, every time we ordered they charged us 12.5% service charge, which I do not expect to pay every single time I order a drink. Food was reasonably priced, as were the drinks. They were quickly changed into plastic cups for taking into the show. There was also a little surprise for me as it was my birthday, much appreciated :) definitely worth a visit and for chilling with drinks after the show.
Hi Charlotte, Thank you for taking the time to write a review! We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your Boozy Tea Room experience. Just a note about the service charge, we automatically apply 12.5% service charge if you are served at a table, but it is entirely at your discretion whether you want to pay it or not. We hope to see you again soon! Kind regards, Portia (Host)
Expected better. Stood over us until we paid our bill. We had booked a table for 2 hours before the show, but the waitress was waiting for us to move, to allow another party in at 9.30. We were a table of 8 so should have had a full 2 hrs.
Room was lovely, but the atmosphere was poor
Hi Tracey, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I’m sorry to hear that you were dissatisfied with the service here! On the night you visited we were under a lot of pressure to do fast table turn arounds as it was an (unusually) busy evening. We’re sorry that you felt a little rushed. We hope that you come again and experience our usual VIP 5*service that we are known for! Kind regards, Portia (Host)
Gorgeous surroundings, fantastic host, lovely staff and exciting cocktails - brilliant pre-show venue.
Hi Louise, thank you for your lovely review! We’re glad to hear that you enjoyed your Boozy Tea Room experience and hope to see you again soon! Kind regards, Portia (Host)
Terrible place with no one in there. Awful atmosphere! Payed over £9 for a tiny cocktail that comes with no presentation.
Hi Caitlin, Sorry to hear that you didn’t enjoy your Boozy Tea Room experience. We always try our best to deliver first class customer service. I will pass your comments on to our management team. Regards, Portia (Host)
Had after show drinks in here and it was so lovely. Quirky place with a great atmosphere and lovely cocktails. Didn’t eat but other people were and it looked and smelt amazing.
Hi Holly, Thank you for your fantastic review! We’re glad you enjoyed your Boozy Tea Room experience and we hope to see you again soon! Kind regards, Portia
We booked an afternoon tea for our Magic Mike show and only when we sat down were we told they didn't do them anymore. We didn't receive any contact beforehand. We expected a themed experience but we're told that Cosmopolitan did the video of the topless waiters and that's not something they did. Even finding the place was difficult as have to get ID'd first and then wonder round the casino aimlessly. Not impressed.
Hi Sarah, Thank you for your review. I remember you well as I was your Host! Sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your Boozy Tea Room experience. There was no note on your reservation that you had booked afternoon tea, only that you wished to reserve a table. Please feel free to come back again and give our new menu a chance next time. Kind regards, Portia (Host)
Celebrating a weekend with the ladies for a 40th birthday and in London for magic mike, this bar was fab, very chilled and classy, good cocktails, a wide selection of drinks and good service
Thank you for your wonderful review! We’re glad to hear that you enjoyed your Boozy Tea Room experience and hope to see you again! Kind regards, Portia (Host)
The boozy tea room was an amazing experence, an absolute must before the magic mike show. The food is amazing and the cocktails were divine.
Hi Nikki, Thank you for your wonderful review! We’re thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your time here and we hope to see you again soon. - Portia (Host)
Was nothing Particula was expecting Better Atmosphere as was advertised as Magic Mike boozy afternoon tea, food tasted nice but minimal, cocktails very nice. Was expecting a really good Ladies atmosphere before the show wouldn’t recommend not worth the money
Hello, thank you for your review! Sorry to hear that you visited us during one of our quieter moments. We do have busier and quieter moments here, so we do hope to see you again soon on another occasion! Kind regards, Portia (Host)
From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very special. The staff could not have been more polite and friendly. Wonferful experience.
Hi Rita, thank you for your lovely review! It was a pleasure hosting you and we hope to see you back again soon! Kind regards, Portia (Host)
Beautiful room and decor but zero atmosphere. The food although tasty was very little for an afternoon tea. The cocktails however were delicious and well made. We booked a table before watching Magic Mike and was expecting it to be full of ladies ready for the show with a fin filled atmosphere. That was definitely not the case as we were the only table!! Going to be honest in the fact we wish we had booked elsewhere for the start of our evening.
Hello Kirsty! Thank you very much for your review. We do tend to have busier and quieter times and unfortunately your booking fell during the quiet spell after our guests go into the first show at 7:30. I regret that this meant you didn’t get to experience the Boozy Tea Room at it most atmospheric. Please do come back if you get the chance and visit us again; our busiest times tend to be between 6:30-7:30 and Friday and Saturday evenings. We would love to have you! - Stephanie (Host)
Our visit was part of a Birthday trip to London. We booked the afternoon tea package to enjoy before we went downstairs for the Magic Mike Show. The staff throughout were very attentive, accommodating and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. We were even surprised with a birthday dessert and song! We thoroughly enjoyed every second and would highly recommend a visit.
Thank you for such a lovely review! We are so glad you had a nice birthday and enjoyed your time here at the Casino. Please come and visit us again if you get a chance! - Stephanie (Host)
fab start and end to the evening, staff really lovely
Hi Karen, thank you for leaving us this fab review! We are happy to hear you enjoyed your experience and hope you come to visit us again in the future. - Stephanie (Host)
Delicious cocktails and food. Staff were very good and attentive.
Hi Rhoda, thank you for your lovely review. We are so glad you enjoyed the food, drinks and service. Please come again soon! - Stephanie (Host)
Fab atmosphere and setting. The food was great and varied and the cocktails an interesting mix of ingredient that really worked. attentive and helpful service completed our visit
Hello, thank you very much for taking the time to leave your review. We are so glad you enjoyed your visit, please do come back and visit us again! - Stephanie (Host)
We booked in advance for the Boozy Tea Room thinking it would enhance our evening when coming to see Magic Mike Live. Unfortunately the welcome we received was pretty deflating. The bar-man wasn't especially bothered about greeting us and had difficulty finding our booking. The waitress was ok but not particularly cheery. It seemed they both had already had a long night - not our fault - but their lack of enthusiasm was obvious. The room was lovely however and although the cocktails were well overpriced, they were nice. If you do get a table here, opt for the larger sharing cocktails.
We did have another waitress offer to take our photo who seemed much more in the spirit of the evening but we only saw her briefly.
All in all, what promised to be the starting point for an exciting evening was disappointing and I wouldn't recommend it if you're expecting special treatment. If you just want somewhere quiet to enjoy a few drinks then it's fine. Must just mention it was a Sunday evening, however Magic Mike was still fully booked so there's no reason why the Boozy Team Rooms shouldn't develop a better atmosphere.
Hello Fay, thank you for your review. I am so sorry you haven’t had the positive and memorable experience we always aim to give our guests at the Boozy Tea Room. You should have had a much more enthusiastic welcome, so I can only apologise that you haven’t received our usual standard of service. I have fed back your criticisms to my manager and team and hope we can improve so that should you visit us again we can give you the experience you deserve. Thank you. - Stephanie (Host)
Booked afternoon tea for 3, however they can only provide the afternoon tea food in multiples of 2 - so we could order for 2 & some sides but there was no option to order for 3, was very annoyed that this was not made clear upfront or that our booking was denied on this basis of it being an odd number.
The only meat dish on the afternoon tea menu was beef & as none of us for religious reasons do not eat beef they could only offer to replace it with another vegetarian item already on the list of dishes provided for the afternoon tea & would not substitute for one of the additional sides (even the cheapest chicken dish) or a different alternative dish! As this was supposed to be (in our minds) Magic Mike themed we were very disappointed as ONLY the interior with lush velvet sofas & leather booths were inspired by Magic Mike. There were no cheeky waiters (that was just a fantasy) or memorabilia or anything on the menu to connect to the show except for one Channing labelled cocktail.
We were very disappointed in the whole set-up for afternoon tea in the boozy tea rooms and would not recommend it as part of the Magic Mike experience but the rooms are lovely. Plus the huge saving grace were the staff in particulate the host; she was excellent, very understanding & extremely helpful we received fabulous service from her & the staff, she managed to make a booking for us for a meal at the Steak Restaurant in the Hipodrome Casino & gave us a complimentary cocktail each for the disappointment in the afternoon tea set-up in The Boozy Tea-Room.
We had a fantastic evening & night, the Steak Restaurant & staff were also excellent.
The show Magic Mike Live Show was AMAZING!!!
Hello Sushie, thank you for taking the time to write this review. I am glad you were happy with the service you received, but sorry that your experience wasn’t what you had hoped. We really appreciate feedback and criticism at the Tea Room and I have discussed these points with my manager so that we may improve upon what we offer here. I hope you come and visit again in the future and that you find we have acted positively upon your feedback! Thank you again. - Stephanie (Host)
Very good service, staff were attentive. And served great drinks, at a very reasonable cost.
Hello Sarah, thank you for your wonderful review! We hope to have you with us again soon. - Stephanie (Host)
Having been advertised as a magic mike afternoon tea served by gorgeous men, we were served by a female waitress, there was no magic mike theme!! No one seemed to know what they were doing, totalling unorganised. Waitress knocked a bottle of fruit cider over me, had only been there 10 minutes. No one asked if we’d like to order food, had to ask 3 times for the bill.
Hi Lissa, We regret to hear that you didn't enjoy your Boozy Tea Room experience. We were training new staff on the evening of your visit, which may explain why you didn't receive our usual VIP service. Sorry to hear about this, I will pass on your comments to the management team. As for Magic Mike, the room has been designed and constructed by the MML production team, however there is nothing in our advertising material that you will be served by "gorgeous men". - Portia (Host)
A huge thank you to Portia! She made us feel so welcome. We did book last minute as we were attending Magic Mike Live. She arrange a pre and post show table and everything was perfect!
Hi Charlotte, thank you for your wonderful review! It was an absolute pleasure hosting you and your friends. We hope to see you again soon! - Portia
Lovely pre-show experience for Magic Mike, we even met the owner who was wandering around the tea room. A lovely older gentlemen who gave us some insight into the experience. Magic mike was also rather fantastic!
Thank you for your fabulous review. We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your Boozy Tea Room experience and even met Jimmy! We hope to see you again soon. - Portia (Host)
Lovely space, staff were really friendly and helpful. Food was fabulous. Drinks were really good too. Would definitely recommend for anyone visiting the hippodrome to watch a show. Good value for money.
Thank you Emma for your fantastic review! We look forward to hosting you again soon. - Portia (Host)
We had a fantastic time in the Boozy Tea Room pre and post the amazing Magic Mike show! Thanks to all the staff there. We would highly recommend others to visit and should we make the trip back to London we'd defo come back!
Thank you Angela for your fantastic review! We’re thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your Boozy Tea Room experience. Hope to see you soon! Kind regards, Portia (Host)
Fabulous food we ordered tapas style hot food and tried the Special Channing Tatum Vodka strawberry tea then onto large grey goose
Staff where gorgeous and so helpful and friendly
This was a shared birthday gathering after a matinee show.
Great place to go we will definitely go back with MORE friends
Thank you Heather for your fabulous review! We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed your Boozy Tea Room experience and we hope to see you again soon! - Portia (Host)
Perfect start to watching Magic Mike. Bit pricey but we wanted something speacial to start our night and this was it. Didn't try the food but couldn't not put a star. Deffo recommend for a special drink before watching the amazing show.
Thank you Bethany for your fabulous review! It was a pleasure hosting you and your guests and we hope to see you again soon! Kind regards, Portia (Host)
The staff were excellent and very attentive however, we felt the afternoon tea was not good value for money and there was not enough food for two people. Sandwiches were a let down because the filling was very insufficient. We would definitely come back to the hippodrome but not for afternoon tea.
Hello Robyn, thank you for visiting the Boozy Tea Room. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your time here, but regret to hear that you didn't enjoy your afternoon tea. We are very reasonably priced for afternoon tea in this part of London, however I will pass on your comments to the chef and my manager. We hope to see you again soon! Kind regards, Portia (Host)
The staff were lovely the atmosphere was ok BUT the choice of cocktails was limited and weren’t the same as website, in addition the tea stand was a complete waste of money the food was terrible with weird conflicting tastes and quite a few things were inedible, really not worth the money especially when the steakhouse had a deal for £20 per person which was much better value I was really annoyed!
Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you didn’t like your afternoon tea stand, however we feel that your bad review for service is unfair, as we aim to treat every guest as VIP. Our cocktail list is certainly not limited. We serve all of the classic cocktails, in addition to our own signature cocktail list. If you wanted something different to what was on offer, you could have asked your server, who would have been delighted to help! - Portia (Host)
shouldnt be advertised as magic mike afternoon tea as the dancers coming our are not guranteed.
Hello Charlie, thank you for your review. I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed your Boozy Tea Room experience, however we are slightly confused as to where you got the information from regarding the dancers being here? Our Boozy Tea Room was designed and launched by Channing Tatum and the Magic Mike Live production team (hence the connection), however we have never advertised that the cast are included in your experience! We hope to see you again! - Portia (Host)
There weren't alternative options for those with nut/egg allergies or vegetarian/vegans. We ended up having to order more food because and we weren't overly impressed with what was offered. Presentation was fabulous but we had to make do with what they had.
The cocktails were unique and really tasty, the champagne wasn't cold, just above room temperature. Considering there were only a couple of tables of people in there I think they could have done better! I won't be going again as it was severely overpriced for what we got.
Thank you for your feedback. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your visit, however sorry to hear that we were unable to cater for your dietary requirements. At the moment, our menu is limited (and available to view online), but we are looking into alternative vegan/gluten free options for the future. Apologies for the warm champagne, this shouldn’t have happened. We will ensure that this doesn’t happen again in the future and that our execllent service is consistent. - Portia (Host)
We thought this place was lovely and food and drinks where great ! Definitely go again x
Hi Angelina, Thank you for your wonderful review! We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your Boozy Tea Room experience and you are welcome to come here anytime. - Portia (Host)

A great way to start a Magic Mike night. Great service lovely setting.
Hi Cathy, thank you for your lovely comments, however please tell me the reason that you have only given us a 3 star review? It sounds like you have had a 4 or 5 star overall experience. - Portia (Host)
