Quiet and very civilised tea room (also does coffee and a wide range of drinks). Quality of the tea is excellent - not an easy thing to find in London where coffee tends to be the focus.

I brought my two daughters here for what I hoped would be a delicious afternoon tea. I was not let down. Absolutely fabulous. Beautiful atmosphere, very comfortable lounge. Devine tea and scrumptious finger food. Next time I'm in London I would definitely go back here.

The atmosphere is great, food and drink is also great, and on top of that the hotel is very posh and in interesting area of London. Just a rock's throw away from Soho and Chinatown, what else do you need?
