I have been here many times. The experience really depends on the service, the time of day, and how busy it is. This review is about tea and dessert in the evening in the reading room. There was a bassist and pianist playing old jazz standards and the plus being it wasn't too busy so we didn't feel rushed. There... More

Recently visited here for a special occasion. Food, service and all round experience was superb. The steak I ate was cooked to perfection and was everything we hoped it would be. Was also pleasantly surprised at the cost - much more reasonable than I thought it would be. Will look at another visit in the future for special occasions.

This is hands down one of the best classic afternoon teas in London. Elegant but not stiff, wonderful service. We came not too hungry and the waiter was kind to suggest that the five of us share 3 afternoon teas. I really appreciate that we are not forced into wasting food. My sister really loved the scones but my favorite... More

We usually breakfast here every month when in London and find the service impeccable, nothing is too much trouble and great value for money.

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
