Scoff & Banter Tea Rooms - Oxford Street
Tucked away just off Oxford Street, you’ll find a cosy little retreat serving the very best in Great British afternoon tea, whatever the time. Let us take you on a journey from the savoury to the sweet, to the fabulous and the great. With a few little surprises along the way.
One very good afternoon tea. Especially that you get two small hot dishes as well.
This was one of the best afternoon teas we have had for a long time excellent menu with good choice of both hot and cold food and if you like your tea also an excellent choice. In particular the arancini balls were delicious and the the sticky toffee pud was as light as a feather. The service was also very good our waiter was very attentive without being intrusive . We would not hesitate to go again.
I would recommend it foods lovely our waiter was very chatty and helpful although I didn't think it fair that I had to pay for the 2 cokes we had 1 each considering we didn't have a tea or coffee would have been nice to gave received these instead
A brilliant experience, from start to finish .
The food, the service and the cost was great, would definitely go back when I am next in London.
This was my family's first Afternoon Tea. I had selected it because we were looking for a place that had the traditional tea but would be substantial enough for our two teen boys and also wouldn't break the bank. Scoff and Banter totally exceeded my expectations. From the first course to the last - attentive service, fantastic food and beautiful atmosphere. And the porcelain was gorgeous and unique. We would definitely visit again next time we are in London!
The Scoff and Banter tea room was an oasis of calm, hard to believe it was just off the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street. All the staff were very welcoming and couldn't do enough to accomodate us. The food was all freshly made and very tasty. Would highly recommend for a treat with friends!
I love afternoon tea, it‘s like British Tapas.
First time in London 🥰 ever! REAL, traditional afternoon tea with variety of pastries, including a Pot of tea, two different jams... Strawberry vanilla and rhubarb not to mention clotted cream.
Spiced scallop & cauliflowers beignets, Vanilla&Valrhona chocolate scones 2 of each, Chicken caesar with rosemary focaccia & Oak-smoked ham with english mustard, rocket&tomato Sandwiches, Strawberry shortbread with whipped creme&chocolate whisky cake, candied orange & malt shake.
Ambiance, service and food was excellent. Only us and one more couple was visiting when we were there ( strange because everything excellent...) Maybe it had to do with the fact that it was on a monday, and the fact that it was a bit hard to find ( inside the Hotel without any sign outside....)
Great Service and great vibes.
Thanks and I will be returning again!
This was my second time at Scoff and Banter, as i loved my first experience. This time I took my mum and my daughters. We had an amazing afternoon. Staff were brilliant and nothing was to much trouble. I'll be back. Thank you
The food and service was excellent. The only thing that could be improved is the atmosphere as it was very quiet and making conversation felt uncomfortable at times as that was the only noise.
Ambiance was set as you walked up the stairs. Lovely room. Have had afternoon tea at many 5 star hotels in London but this surpassed them. The staff were all very attentive but not overly so. Fantastic to be able to choose your 2 choices from each of the 4 courses. So much choice. We loved everything we tried. The starters were made to order and super hot when arrived. Don’t hesitate and book. Should be a lot busier. We will definitely go again.
Enjoyable, nice helpful staff but slightly let down by the kitchen on this occasion, but soon rectified by the waiting staff.
Excellent services, Roberto was great recommended some dishes which were delicious. He was very attentive and the food and drink choices were excellent
Superb food - different from other afternoon teas because of the hot kitchen starters and the fact you have a choice and not a set menu. Lots to eat - 8 items per person so make sure you are hungry!
Wonderful service, food and atmosphere!
The waitresses were very nice and funny.
Would definitely recommend to my friends :)
Fabulous afternoon tea. Food amazing,wide tea choice attentive but not intrusive staff.
I visited on Thursday 30th May. Our waiter was incredibly attentive. Myself and one of the other guests have food allergies which are unusual and he could not have been more helpful. He asked the chef to highlight all the items on the menu which we could eat and talked them through with us. They also served all the food on separate towers so that there was no cross contamination of the food.
All of the food was delicious and very filling. Would highly recommend to friends and will certainly be visiting again.
Amazingly good food and tea! Nice staff and the atmosphere is incredible!
Wonderful experience.priceu but perfect. Would definitely recommend for a splurge.
Poor scones- edible but doughy and jam was very runny
We’ll be back!
Good value for money and a little different having a starter!
Loved this place. Staff were really friendly, you get a really nice choice of food (which you actually get to choose as opposed to being presented with, the tea roomitself was nice and the price was more than reasonable
Excellent afternoon tea. Great choices - scallops and sticky Beijing beef starters both superb.
Attentive, friendly staff. Beautifully laid tables. Desserts are amazing - must try sticky toffee pudding and rhubarb and custard. Highly recommended.
This was our first stop upon arriving in London from the US for the first time, and it did not disappoint!!! Everything was fantastic! Highly recommend!
Affordable yet classy, had an enjoyable time with girlfriend, good date spot
Both the food and level of service was outstanding. Will be returning for a second visit.
Amazing service, we had my friends 11 month old baby with us and the staff were amazing with him
Brilliant food really enjoyed everything especially as I’m gluten free only small complaint was they only had gluten free fruit scones which I don’t like
Service was really good and staff were lovely and so kind and helpful
I will be back
The best Afternoon Tea in London! Friendly and service minded staff. Lovely tea cups and pots. Great food, sandwiches, sones and sweets. Don’t miss this gem!
Had an absolutely brilliant time for my partners Birthday tea! Her family are Spanish and we were happy that we had a Spanish waiter to serve our table which made the experience a lot more enjoyable as it was easier to order and converse.
The food was brilliant and the hot chocolate was amazing!
Had a lovely afternoon tea with my daughter. All staff were very helpful, explained the menu and continued to be in attendance if needed.
The afternoon tea service was a highlight of our trip to London. The food was incredible and the portions were perfectly sized so we did not leave hungry. Would highly recommend this place!
We liked hot meals and strawberry tart and the staff. They are really so kind! However, scones, ambiance and sandwiches and other meals are not so much delicious.. And it is negative point that you have not halal meals... Menu is so limited.
The sandwiches and scones are cold
Great ambience and service but the food severely lacked seasoning! (Avoid the lobster bisque!)
On a plus note, there was a great selection of teas and some of the deserts really hit the spot!
Casually found myself here, with a friend and I am so happy I did. The customer service was exceptional and the staff were very accommodating. The dessert and tea that we both ordered, tasted great and although the portions were quite small, I would highly recommend the lemon meringue, blackberry compote and lime syrup! We really appreciated the high attention to detail, from the uniform set up of each table to the great cleanliness. Only one other table was occupied when we went, so there was an underlying quiet that made for a very calming atmosphere. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit and plan to go back for a full tea experience!
Fantastic afternoon tees. The waiter was exceptional. THANKS :)
Fantastic After noon tea! Serviceminded staff, good food etc.
We are a family of 5 with 3 kids and the hostess was very accommodating and explained the selections well. Food was plentiful and tasted excellent, and the teas / hot chocolate were equally great. Would definitely recommend!
Sandwiches was not so delicious, but rest of food was really good. Nice and quite place. Tea was delicious, but I didn't like, that tea was after few minutes too strong, because it was impossible to take it out.
