I took my mum here for a pre-Christmas treat. The tea was pretty expensive- £57 each, so I had high expectations! From the moment we walked in the door the service was impeccable and we were very well looked after. Our coats and shopping bags were whisked away, and we were led into the team room. Cosy sofas and armchairs were dotted around the room, with piano music playing in the background. Our waiter was very attentive and looked after us really well, explaining the menu and bringing us as many extras as we could eat. Sandwiches with salmon and cucumber, ham and cheese, turkey and cranberry, and egg mayonnaise were first up, and were promptly demolished along with our champagne. After this there were charming cakes- a red glittery macaron, a coffee flavoured mousse handbag among others, and scones with jam and clotted cream alongside a copious amounts of tea. The portions are unlimited, and the waiter told us the most that had been ordered was eight rounds of sandwiches- we managed three! Overall I really enjoyed the tea- the food is delicious, and the atmosphere is unstuffy, relaxed and intimate. I would definitely recommend this for a classic British treat. 

Very gracious and attentive staff, the food was just ok but so much better than the Savoy that I'm giving it 3 stars. A plus--we were offered more of everything, and when I did ask for another of a pastry I liked, they quickly brought two. A minus--this was supposed to be a special "Jubilee Tea" and was described as having pastries made to look like crown jewels, etc. I asked, when the usual ordinary pastries appeared, and was told this WAS the special Jubilee Tea. All in all, we were disappointed with the expensive teas we had in London. Be aware, you have to cancel 48 hours ahead or you will be charged 15GBP.
