My wife, mother in law and myself booked this for my wifes birthday. I was a bit apprehensive as I'd never had afternoon tea in one of the big London hotels, especially one with such a reputation as Claridge's. I was worried we may feel out of place and unwelcome. I couldn't be more wrong. From the moment we made... More

Had the most perfect afternoon here. From the moment we alighted from our taxi outside to our departure, everything was marvellous. The waiter was informative, attentive and friendly. The choice of tea was overwhelming but he guided us through it and our tea was lovely. The sandwiches, scones and cakes were so tasty. Lovely flavour combinations. The hotel is just... More

Two years after our last visit we returned again today for another indulgent afternoon tea. The food and service are just fabulous. It is not cheap but it is well worth it if you get a chance. As before we couldn't finish so were sent away with a little box of cakes which we look forward to later this evening!

Celebration afternoon tea - our party of 6 were celebrating our mother's 80th birthday. Staff friendly and our waitress was excellent. 2 fussy eaters (1 no fish and 1 no cheese) could have made selection of sandwiches difficult and our waitress couldn't have been more helpful, bringing different fillings. Scones were amazing, the Maison Freres jam was unbelievably good. Pastries... More

Put on our posh togs, and enjoyed a most enjoyable afternoon tea. The food was superb, and the desserts, divine, a work of art!!! Too good to eat, but far too tempting not to. Brought out on Claridges famous, classy china, not tiered as you would have expected, but none the less, very professional. Our only gripe was the fact... More

After watching the TV documentary about this iconic hotel I promised myself that if ever I was in London I would go there even if it was for breakfast. Well I made it and it was all I expected and even more. Elegance and opulence are a couple of words I can use to describe this experience. The breakfast was... More

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.
