Dolly's at Selfridges
Our café is named after the Dolly Sisters, a pair of glamorous identical twins who entranced 1920s audiences – and particularly our founder Harry Gordon Selfridge – with enchanting performances."
Not at all what I was expecting. Overpriced, mediocre food, noisy, cramped & crowded space. If I'd known, I wouldn't have bothered.
Everything you would expect of an English Tea.
I reserved a table requesting a gluten free high tea only to be told it was totally unavailable. I booked this from Canada after Selfridges was recommended by a friend.
Frankly, when I saw the busy location of Dolly’s I was rather relieved to not have to stay. It was beyond disappointing.
I won’t return
Recommend the afternoon tea. Staff lovely. Plenty of tea. Would have liked a choice of pastries.
I had booked the experience as a 40 birthday afternoon tea for my friend so there were just us two dining. The location of Dolly’s was disappointing, surrounding the escalators. It felt like an afterthought and was very busy with people coming and going. Upon arrival we found there was a queue and everyone seemed very busy. The cakes in the cabinet beside us looked amazing. When we were seated we ordered the Dolly’s afternoon tea which presented as rather sparse. The sandwiches were good admittedly although the rest appeared to be miniature size including the scones which were not warmed either. We weren’t asked if everything was ok and whether we needed refills of team. It all felt rather lacklustre and busy. Our expectations was to experience a bit of decadence as the Dolly’s would have done. It seemed most basic and care had not been taken either in the atmosphere or ambience and the food poorly presented. We were give a meringue tart not overly large to share. It was an average experience and no music to mop up background noise either. I seldom leave a negative review but I’m sorry you did ask
Every thing was good
We only spent one day in London and were on a time crunch but the staff was wonderful and accommodating, and we were able to experience afternoon tea in the morning before they officially started serving it. We loved the finger sandwiches and the caramel dessert. Great food and outstanding service!
Not was I was expecting. Basicly eating in a shopping maul right next to the escalator! Very overpriced
Thoroughly enjoyed the Afternoon Tea at Dolly's. This is the second time in a year we've been here ! See you soon.
Was quite a nice environment, slightly over priced but a good experience
Really enjoyed our first real afternoon english tea!
Very attentive and friendly from all staff from start to finish
We added a guest and 5 people was squeezed oto 1 table. There were not enough sandwiches and there was only 1 cake that was nice. Would not recommend to friends and family.
Only 1 vege sandwich option for the afternoon tea! The portions were a bit on the small side and there was no choice on the cake tier, just 1 slice of Victoria sponge.
The staff was excellent. We made a reservation, so wait time wasn’t an issue. The staff discretely dealt with an individual who didn’t want to wait on line. This was appreciated as it did not distract from our experience. The food was good and the price was right. The staff was so much friendlier than the waitress who served us at Harrod’s.
It's a lovely little cafe for afternoon tea, sandwiches and gorgeous cakes... recommended to pre book as gets very busy sometimes. Great selection of cakes and teas etc.... Love the silver teapots... gives added glamour. Have been a few times. Always love coming back.
Not up to the quality of tea at Fortnum’s or the Dorchester. Dry and thinly spread finger sandwiches. The service was great
Lovely professional staff with good balance of being friendly and efficient. I was disappointed with Dolly's set up being in the centre of the store beside the escalator. I thought it deserves more private surroundings like that of a tearoom.
