Our server Gift was friendly, but always courteous, attentive, and informative. Staff were all very courteous and friendly. The champagne was lovely. The sandwiches were delicious, light but filling. The sweets were just sweet enough, not heavy or cloying. We couldn't finish our scones and ate them later. They held up well and tasted even better. Excellent!Dietary restrictions: Accommodated nut allergy.


I was worried about whether I would enjoy it alone, but thank you for being so helpful and friendly!The tea was especially good.I visited as a "treat" for my language course in the UK and was very happy with my visit :) thank you.


Typical English afternoon tea experience in a luxurieus environment. Choice between traditional or vegan options available. Thank you David for the very good service and advice.

We came here to celebrate my parents' golden wedding anniversary at the same venue where they got married. the team at Cafe Royal went above and beyond to make the day as special as we could have hoped for. Down from the really helpful reservation staff who made sure we could get a table on the right day through to the team on the day who were friendly, funny, attentitive and knowledgeable - they made my parents feel like returning VIPs. The food was excellent: one of the best egg mayo sandwiches i've ever had - and the pastries were incredible. There was also a genuinely excellent selection of teas, with great advice - but everything was just made so easy, we wanted to make a small change to the menu and there was no fuss about it at all. I couldn't recommend this place for a special afternoon tea highly enough.

Afternoon Festive tea at the Grill Room at £85. The Grill Room is really beautiful and opulent. We were truly charmed by the ambiance. The gentleman that assisted us, Luigi is very charming and affable and offered us perfect service. Great place for photographs as well. The cream for the scones were so good.

This place is "over the top", and you know what to expect beforehand. It´s a tea experience on the top10 level in London, and you get it, but you also pay for it. The quality of scones and sandwiches is over the top, the sweets are (too) sweet but exceptional in quality also. For us, the amount of food was too much to take in everything in time, but we made something out of it the next day after take away. The service by Showmo is outstanding and worth mentioning. For some, it could be over the top, for me, it was service from the heart and more.

Had a fantastic afternoon tea celebrating my 50th with my wonderful friends back in June. We were well looked after by the staff and they made sure we enjoyed my special birthday. Definitely recommend this place for the great customer service, the ambience of the place and the delicious sandwiches, cakes and pastries. Thank you very much.
