Afternoon Tea

Indulge in the exquisite fusion of taste and tribute with our Spring Afternoon Tea, launching on February 19th. This tea celebrates the multifaceted essence of womanhood, perfectly timed for International Women's Day and Mother’s Day. Created in collaboration with Floris London, it offers a sensory journey inspired by the delicate Lily of The Valley.

With a portion of proceeds supporting Breast Cancer UK from the launch of the afternoon tea until Mother’s Day, the pastries symbolize stories of courage and beauty, depicting two breasts adorned with a golden scar reminiscent of Kintsugi, the Japanese art that values beauty in broken pottery restored with golden glue. These scars narrate tales of resilience and transformation, akin to the beauty found. Join us in honoring the strength and beauty of women.

    Food was lovely, sandwiches and scones were great. The cakes are beautiful and very delicious but sickly due to them being quite big and more of a share size than individual. 4 cakes that size shared would have been better than the 3 each as they were impossible to finish. We were the first table in and my biggest negative for the experience was the table it was a bog standard chair and table for 2 like you'd get in a café, while other much more comfortable and nicer looking tables sat empty the whole time we were there. Service was good but you can only have 1 additional sandwich each where every other London hotel will refill as much as you like. The room and hotel are beautifully designed and staff were all friendly and accommodating. Overall I would recommend for the price

    Dear Madam/Sir, It's wonderful to hear that you enjoyed the food, especially our sandwiches, scones, and cakes. However, we're sorry if our serving size was somewhat overwhelming. Your insight is valuable, and we'll certainly consider it. We regret to learn that your seating arrangement was not up to your expectations. We always aim to make our guests as comfortable as possible and will take note of your feedback. We're glad to hear your appreciation of our interior design and our friendly staff. We continually strive to provide a delightful experience for all our guests. Your recommendation, despite the few setbacks, is highly appreciated. We hope to welcome you back soon. Best regards, The Parlour at Great Scotland Yard

    Outside of the scones, the other dishes weren’t very good. There was also a number of open tables available but the hostess turned patrons away and was inflexible of where the remaining patrons could sit. We were all placed in suboptimal seating locations (behind doors and without views) while prime seating remained unused. Also, I’d avoid the non-refundable event booking as well. Would have preferred spending time at a much more accommodating tea room with better food.

    Wow, we are still overwhelmed by the desserts/sweets served as part of afternoon tea. Perhaps the best overall of any afternoon tea we've tried. The decor was phenomenal, service was friendly and well paced and you cannot go wrong with scones, clotted cream and summer jam. The selection of teas was outstanding and well organized and we were able to each choose our own type.

    This was our first Tea so difficult to compare but everything was outstanding. If you’re looking for something fancy/special occasion this was perfect. We did Christmas Day Tea and the deserts were especially charming. A great mix of innovative flavors with classic standards.

    It’s a great concept to have afternoon tea with your hotel. Our dog loved it and the staff was very friendly and kind. The food and cake were delicious and the presentation was another level. I would only recommend one thing, people will put their dog on the chair. Have extra blankets to cover the chairs so the dogs won’t damage it. It was a lovely experience, we will definitely will return with Coco.

    The food was delicious and creative - afternoon tea with interesting and exceptional savory sandwiches (some of them puff pastry) as well as outstanding scones and desserts. The room is beautiful, intimate, furnished with comfortable chairs and the tables are not too close together. The rectangular shape of the room meant that we had our own quiet space. The service was excellent from start to finish (we were there at a time when some servers went off duty during our meal so we encountered numerous staff members). The AC was excellent. I would certainly return there.

    Pride themed afternoon tea and experience was a disappointment. I had made a reservation yet upon entering the restaurant they didn’t know where to sit us and waited a while for them to decide where to seat us, after confirming the booking the day before by phone, are table should have been reserved. The savoury afternoon tea food was the best part, the desserts and service was a let down. The waiter didn’t know all the food and asked us to look at the menu for him, he didn’t check with us about anything and it was hard to get anyone’s attention for the bill, we had just been forgotten about. The desserts were all very sweet and not the best, the macaron was wet and soft, the other desserts either lacked flavour or had not been made to a high standard. The pride afternoon tea was just a way to cash-in on the market- from how it was advertised online to the experience received it lacked any resemblance and had no other pride ambience.

    Amazing tea time experience! Exquisite pâtisseries and savouries! Various selection of teas with very différent tastes. A little bit noisy because we were seated close to the till, a bit disorganized too many people come to take you order and ask you twice if you want champagne…but I will be back because they were all very nice and very polite.

    We tried the pre theatre menu which had little choice and the food was below average in terms of taste. Very disappointing I am afraid

    Very expensive and very bad in terms of value for money. Not sure what we really pay for. In addition the staff does not come often to check if all was ok or whether we needed anything. Said otherwise while the staff is nice the service is quite weak. Finally we have been overcharged £70 per person when actually we had no champagne at all as we do not drink alcohol. They just assumed we did and charged us maximum price. How can we ask for a refund?

    Dear Mohamed, We apologize for falling short of your expectations during your recent experience. Your feedback is valuable to us, and we will work hard to improve our services.  Your bill have been reviewed, and you were charged standard afternoon tea which costs £59. There was no champagne charged as you kindly informed us that you do not consume any alcohol. Please reach out to us for a copy of your charges if needed. Best regards, The Parlour Team

    I enjoyed afternoon tea on my own. The tea was excellent, I had the Earl Gray - best tea I've ever had. The room was very pleasant with a fireplace and comfortable chairs.

    Service was very slow, I had to ask for more tea for three times before I got some. The food was good, but nothing extraordinary.

    Great British tradition, but with mediocre interpretation. Sandwiches, compared to Savoy Afternoon Tea were mostly bland and deserts were unreasonably huge. Best were scones and clotted cream with preserve.

    We had a great time at the Parlour, the decor and comfort are excellent and the service was as expected. There was some noise as the room filled up of course but it was moderate. The food is good but not outstanding. Being a rather expensive afternoon tea, you would expect a richer choice of quality bread, more refined and nutritious, rather than the plain old white sandwich bread. The fillings could be finer too with more research. The scones were far from tasting like the Devon or Cornwall ones but still good. As for the cakes, I would say less fuss on the presentation and more taste would be perfect.
