    Lovely welcome but the service was not very attentive during the sitting. We had to ask for top-ups of the tea on several occasions. The table was in the middle of the walkway on some bouncy floorboards so felt like having tea on a boat. Not quite sure it was worth the £54 min per person

    They were really nice staff who were really helpful. I had the vegan tea and was one of the best i have had. I can’t recommend the apricot white tea enough, had multiple servings. The visual was again one of the best. They had lots of interesting drink options, actually did the wine pairing which was good.

    Have been looking for an alternative treat to a short holiday this was it, the food was lovely, the ambiance was perfect, I loved that the room could retain the traditional tea room vibe without being 'high end' detracting from that, the staffs professional persona is excellent and I enjoyed the overall experience. Only constructive criticism I have is that the table was low with limited room mine was a touch exposed but then I like to be tucked out the way - being low and standing out means it's hard for the waiter not to tower over you somewhat

    The staff and ambiance at The Rosebery were superb. It was a fantastic way to spend a rainy afternoon indoors safely! I can't recommend this place enough. My husband and I chose to do the wine pairing with the Afternoon Tea and it was delightful. The entire staff explained each item with great precision and knowledge. Every detail was accounted for and appreciated. Next time we go back we are going to try the infamous Sake pairing!

    A special treat for a friend expecting her first child. Tom, our waiter was exemplary in his care and attention to detailing the delights on offer for our Winter Afternoon Tea in The Rosebery. Our 'special needs' were met above our expectations and made the experience an absolute delight. My friend and 'bump' throughly enjoyed the afternoon and was surprised and delighted with her special pastry made for the occasion saying 'Congratulations'.

    From the moment you step into the Mandarin Oriental, you are captured by the beautiful decor of which we were extra blessed as the Xmas decorations were beautiful. The afternoon tea was bottomless, and the sandwich selection was tailored to individual taste which was wonderful as I am pescatarian. The scones were cranberry which made a refreshing change and the lemon curd jam and rose jam also added a difference. Cakes were themed and delightful. The Rosenberg was a totally recommended thumbs up. Only negative was in the bar, £22.95 for a very small cocktail was a bit steep!!

    Sandwiches are good and the overall services were superb except one waitress forgot our request of paying the bills and let us wait for 15mins. The sweets were absolutely terrible , also, the waitress ask us do we need water for the table before gave us the menu, nobody told us the water costs 7 pounds which we thought was free, and served a whole bottle without asking how much we want. I book this as a part of my friend’s graduation trip, we are not happy with the experience here, surely not gonna come again.

    This was another return visit to The Rosebery, to celebrate our 3rd wedding anniversary. Everything was just perfect. All the staff were very friendly and made sure we were very well looked after during our afternoon tea. The sandwiches were replenished several rimes, as were our teas and my wife champagne. This is without doubt the best venue in London.

    Absolutely incredible experience! The staff are so attentive and take their time to explain everything, offer recommendations and make the experience really special. The food was some of the best I’ve had at an afternoon tea, a perfect mix of traditional and modern. The highlight was the congratulatory dessert that was brought out to celebrate my graduation, which was such a lovely surprise!

    Good food and great location. Too noisy compared to other times I have been there. Very poor service given the price and the selling proposition they have: food and teas not coming on time, we had to ask many times for a refill or to get an additional tea. 3 different waiters were assigned to our table, making a lot of confusion with what had already been ordered and what not. At the end, they took away our stuffs without asking if we were done or not, or without offering anything more. All in all, a great location and high quality of food and ingredients not matching the service and the experience of exclusivity that I would have expected.
