Thoroughly enjoyable experience I would recommend
Only negative point was £7.00 for a bottle of water which I thought was excessive and when given the option I would always choose tap water to be environmentally friendly But was not offered this which was disappointing

The price was incredibly high for what was mediocre cakes, nice scones and nice sandwiches. Tea itself was very good. 56 per person was way over the top compared to the quality of food.

I am an afternoon tea Addict so have tried all the top afternoon teas in London and most of the average ones. I would put this one in my top 3. It has an air of refined elegance without the over the top snootiness that you can find in some of the others. The new fit out is beautiful, the staff are absolutely wonderful - warm, inviting and accommodating. The food was so good we practically had to roll out of there. Special shout out to the sandwich course of the tea - it was the best of all the ones I’ve been to.

Treated my old people on this outing! My mom has mobility issues and the maitre d really went out of his way to look out for her.

Had a great time and the food was tasty, even if it was death by sugar at the end!

We went on a busy saturday afternoon to have afternoon tea. I love the fact that you can have many different teas with your afternoon tea. The sweet section they only brought one each for the two of is which was a bit cheeky but you are allowed to request for more which we did. Overall it was an enjoyable nexperience. It was very busy but staff was polite and friendly.

This was our second visit to the Rosebery for afternoon tea. The setting is lovely but it was super expensive - especially the service charge that was added and didn't seem to be negotiable.

Would have like to see out of the windows. When visiting London one likes to see the hustle and bustle of this beautiful city

Sandwiches were amazing. Pastries were disappointing, a tad bland

Birthday treat for my GF. We both loved it. Food was great and cakes are really exceptional and we went for the paired wine option which really complimented our food. Service strikes the perfect balance between attentive and obtrusive. Can’t wait to go again.

I booked an afternoon tea but the appointment was not informed to the restaurant in error. However, we had a good time there with an excellent quality of food& tea
, except a little disappointment of short staff(taking time to get noticed of my call).
I recommend there to my friend.

The Rosebery Afternoon Tea lived up to the reviews I have read online for the most part. The savories and desserts were quite good, especially the Egg Truffle Sandwich. The tea, though on the whole tasted very well, could be stronger. Also, I think the fact that it was pre-brewed before it was served took away from the experience. The art of brewing the tea leaves at the tea table itself is VERY IMPORTANT. BY taking this out of the equation, something in the act of making and drinking the tea is missing.

Rosebery offered an excellent venue for high tea, and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to have a distinguished afternoon with quality services. It was especially pleasant that the tea selection was both diverse and of topmost quality, and we surely indulged ourselves in it. I think that the bottomless tea options were the highlight of the tea, along with the creative combination of tea with sake.

We went their for a special occasion - and that’s what the staff (Anthony, Olivia) did, they made it a special occasion.

Beyond doubt - excellent service from the moment you pull up outside the Manderin. There’s nothing I can fault!

Thank you to all of the staff (concierge, front of house, waitress/waiters)!
