Very very fresh pastries and sandwiches. Almost tried all the tea as the waitress is so keen on helping us try different fine leaves and keep our tea pot warm :) Very tasty food too.

Brilliant service as per usual. Beautifully decorated and recently refurbished. Staff exceptionally courteous and welcoming. Really interesting fillings in finger sandwiches. Artistic presentation in Pastries. Extensive Leaf Teas Menu. Our Birthday Afternoon Tea was very nice.

We began the treat with a visit to the Bar, and enjoyed ice cold Mocktails which were presented in glass teapots filled with colourful flowers.
We shall certainly visit again soon!

Thank you to all the Staff.

We were experiencing a Tea Time while vacationing in London! What a beautiful place - everything from the first step to a walk to our table to an amazing service personnel to beautiful decor, fine bone china, delicious pastries, "melt in your mouth" tiny sandwiches, selection of teas, wines, champagnes, and on, and on, and on!!! One word - a WOW! We really loved it and would definitely be back! I hope a few amazingly classy and professional young men that were looking after us will get this message and a pat on their back! You all deserve the highest rating and a great applause! Thank you to All! Warmest regards,
Alexandra Sokoll and Michael Kent

We absolutely love the high tea at The Rosebery Lounge! We have been to a lot of places previously and so far, no other establishment compares. The food is delicious and well presented and the service is impeccable! We look for the best service and attention and always get it from the staff there. Robin has always been gracious and invited us back and we do! In fact, we highly recommend The Rosebery Lounge for afternoon tea at the Mandarin Oriental and our friends and guests are never disappointed!

Booked as a treat to celebrate just getting married. The afternoon tea is amazing with a great selection of cakes and sandwiches & the way it’s served is very unique. I am gluten free and this is by far the best I’ve had, didn’t feel like I missed out. For London I think the cost is good value for money & definitely worth it for a special occasion. The service as you would expect was very attentive, overall very pleased with our experience.

Mandarin oriental standard is certainly there. Service is extremely attentive but the knowledge of the menu, in particular the tea, is lacking. In Asia the tea is a big business and often I go to a restaurant for the specialist who understand tea and my pallete. Savory sandwiches are well done. Food quality is excellent. But if I compare the teas, it's much worse than even the trendy house like TWG!

Lovely afternoon tea. Impeccable and polite service.
But oh so slow. 40 minutes for our children to get sandwiches??
And somewhat uncoordinated.
Delicious and beautiful venue though

The sandwiches are quite cute and unique in shape. But we felt being ignored by waiters since we noticed that they just checked other tables if they need more sandwiches except us.

A lovely lounge in knightsbridge. The menu for high tea has changed. The cakes and sweeter treats were overly sweet and sticky. Besides sandwiches there is little savoury alternative. Which is disappointing if you are accompanied by a male date, as they find the afternoon tea less enjoyable. The sandwiches were lovely. Staff have always been fantastic every time i've been for high tea.
i'd recommend this place for a girly catch up rather than a date location

We went for Afternoon Tea as a special occasion for my husband's 60th birthday. It was certainly a special afternoon. The service was first class and nothing was too much trouble. The food was wonderful and we could have had as much as we liked. I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone.

The location and dining room for the afternoon tea was beautiful. The food was ok - but not as good as other formal afternoon teas I’ve been to for the same price. There is unlimited food and tea - which was a good perk. However, the service was quite slow. Our cakes were brought to the table without us having a top up of tea (which we’d asked for 15 mins prior). When we alerted staff to this, it took another 10 minutes for them to finally bring over the tea. Moreover, our cutlery was not suitably replaced after each course meaning that we had to wipe our sandwich knives in order to use them for the cakes. A minor point, perhaps, but for the price you expect these details to be picked up on by staff.
