Visited with my daughter, a huge lanlard fan. We were both terribly disappointed. The cafe is very small, the service is far too laid back (used to be called sloppy), the savouries, croque Monsieur, we're soggy and tasteless. The cakes were excellent, but the choice very limited. Definitely not worth the trek to get there. We will be ticking to fortnums from now on. They have never let us down and they're much more central.


Cakes look fabulous here but unfortunately it's style over substance; most of the 'cakes' are nice but the black forest gateaux is actually inedible! The over-use of glace cherries together with very rice ganache made the whole thing so disappointing. Diplomatic feedback was not welcomed either, let alone acted upon. If you want good looking cakes that taste okay or (if you choose the black forest cake) are dreadful then go here! We won't be going back - stick to Ottolenghi!


Booked Champagne Afternoon Tea for ourselves and 2 friends. This was presented on two slate platters - one savoury and one sweet. The savoury rolls and croissants had good quality fillings but were let down by being in very ordinary rolls. The sweet platter looked a work of art and had been made with skill but somehow did not deliver quite the wow factor we were expecting. There were no actual cakes - macaroons, mousses, tiny cornets, miniature fruit tarts and chocolate tarts. The service was a bit too relaxed - we had to ask when they were going to serve the champagne! The toilets were very 'used' and were not particularly clean. For what we paid I don't think it was value for money. We won't go back.
