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.

Comparing to other London top range high tea restaurant such as claridges and ritz. Rosebery is certainly would be at a similar ranking.

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)!

Me wife and I, had our first english afternoon tea the day before the visit to Rosebery. What a difference in quality, service and taste! The service, food and selection of teas were absolute fantastic and many levels above what we experienced the day before.

I managed to consume 3 pots of tea during the two hour stay, plus some tastings of my wifes tea selection. Included was additional tastings of teas, sandwiches, scones and cakes.

One of many top memories from the visit at Rosebery was when my wife ordered a taste of Da Hong Pao, a very special tea. The Sommelier of tea at Rosebery came to our table and brewed it there and explained, and let us smell and taste the wonderful tea. To choose this tea you had to pay 7 Pounds extra, but it was worth it. This tea was infused two times at our table, but could do more...

We can recommend Afternoon tea at The Rosebery for everyone who wants an special time, an extraordinary experience. Its worth it! We will come back to The Rosebery next time we are in London.
