The decor and surroundings are lovely, and service was great. There’s a huge selection of tea, both of which we tried were great! We will definitely be back. Perfect spot to relax for a few hours amidst the buzz of Covent Garden. Only note is there is no background music/sounds so is quite quiet, and can make conversations feel a little too loud!

Whilst I love Mariage Freres I was a little disappointed in the selection of menus for Afternoon Tea. There was no fully traditional menu and, as my friend was pescatarian, there was only one menu she could have as the others contain meat. The selection of deserts was quite restricted too as it was a 3.30 booking. Fortunately, the classique menu had only fish. We decided to sit inside and were originally put in the tea room which was crowded, so we moved to the gorgeous balcony ( which I always prefer) which was quiet and not crowded. I would have liked the waitress to have worn a mask. The quality of the food, however, is superb.

Fantastic service and experience as always!
Mariage Freres is my favorite spot in the city for the highest quality teas and quiet afternoons! Great lighting, beautiful design, and unusual, yet delicious dishes (try salmon with tea-infused sauce), a great place for meeting friends or dates.

Will be coming back again and again!

Really enjoyed the delicious Covent Garden afternoon high tea, especially all the savoury course & spectacular tea selection! The presentation of both the savoury & patisserie items were absolutely exquisite to the eye & palate! Great for a birthday celebration with family & friends!

The team at MARIAGE FRÈRES were professional and considerate - we both had items we were not able to eat and substitutions were made without fuss and with careful consideration of our needs. The whole experience was lovely and they even supplied my friend with a happy birthday in chocolate on her tea tray which was lovely. I look forward to my next visit and introducing my friends and family to the lovely Afternoon teas and shop on the ground floor.

Food and location very good. Since they are supposed to be tea experts, I realized the staff is under trained instead. The service a little bit disappointed (tea overbrewed so very bitter, a pathetic take away bag).

Ordered Covent Garden tea set. The savoury treats were divine. Petite Fours were also good though a bit dense and heavy for my liking. A vast variety of tea to suit everyone’s cup of tea literally. Service was also attentive.

Wonderful service and a wonderful experience. The staff are extremely knowledgeable, helpful and polite. We had an opportunity to hear and smell many different varieties of teas and given an explanation of each. Then when we were seated in the dining room, we were better prepared to order from the extensive and appealing menu. The tea list was superb and the cakes and pastries were delicious. A fantastic way to spend an afternoon.

We were disappointed as Le Classique has changed. Used to be with brioche, now with scones ..... with the eggs!! Far too heavy especially as you have cake afterwards too. The brioche was far better, savoury and lighter. As it was, we were so full we couldn’t enjoy the cake and ended up giving it away. Therefore not value for money now.....

Mariage Freres serves the best afternoon tea is London, without doubt. Zabiano, our waiter, made the whole experience even more enjoyable. Service was prompt, and friendly. I can’t wait to come back.
