Make a cuppa yourself and save the torture of going to Tophams for afternoon tea. Only staff member, when we visited, did not appear to be professional. Service was extremely poor and cakes and sandwiches horrible. Luckily we visited with a discount voucher (certainly still now worth it). If I was paying full price, I would have walked away!

Had a deal with Ncrowds for afternoon tea here. It was empty when we got there at 1pm, the cakes were nothing special, as were the sandwiches, 19 quid was a bit steep for what we paid, but it was quiet and it was nice for the kids to have the place to themselves, the waitress was attentive. The restaurant... More

Thankfully we had a Wowcher Deal and only paid £10 each for an afternoon tea with prosecco. It is definitely not worth more! I specifically asked on booking, that one of us required gluten free and was told this wasn't a problem- however this was ignored when our food was brought to our table- so we told the waitress and...

How they can claim the normal value of afternoon tea is £64 is beyond me! The quality is dreadful. Cheap cakes, a few sandwiches and fortunately nice scones made for a dreadful experience. Staff gave me grief as they said I booked for 4 when I definitely booked for 2pm. Then when I asked for a few more scones and... More

Afternoon was a disgrace and not worth the money. Stale bread which was very dry, awful vegetarian options(all I got was cheese cheese cheese on all my sandwiches), the cakes were obviously shop bought which were mr Kipling French fancies. Appalling and not a very good standard at all.

Had a champagne afternoon tea for two booked with a Groupon. Took my husband as a special treat. Really disappointing. They served us with proscetto and not champagne. Denied the offer was for champagne. When we pointed out the fine print on the Groupon they said there was no Champagne anyway in the hotel and they were unable to buy... More

Just dreadful! - Concentrated juices - sandwiches are worse than most super markets - the atmosphere is pretty dull when you are the only people there.

I took my 13 year old daughter here for a treat on a Wowcher afternoon Tea deal and it was disgraceful. The waiter was atrociously rude and the food was still frozen - Costco cakes!! Was no where near the value of even the wowchur deal. We were out of there in 15 minutes flat and the waiter couldn't have... More

We had high tea here, using a discount voucher. The price was good at 2 for £24 including champagne. The food - acceptable half a dozen assorted finger sandwiches each, some non descript petit fours and four fabulous scones with cream and jam. No explanation about what was on the plate. There was just enough cream and it was plonked... More

Reading some of the most recent reviews I couldn't agree more with what's been said about the Afternoon Tea experience at Tophams. We bought a voucher for 2 at £27 from Living Social and I can confirm with 100% certainty Tophams made a massive profit here and the hotel have no shame when stating such things as 'London's finest afternoon...
