Gluten free options weren’t so great. It was very claustrophobic inside.

Booked butterscotch afternoon tea for my mums birthday. We both thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon! I ordered one standard afternoon tea and one vegan afternoon tea. Overall we both really loved the food and selection but I think it would be great if you could be given an indication of what type of sandwich filling you can get and/or what cupcake you will get. This is just because one of the fillings my mum got she didn't particularly like and that she's not a huge chocolate cake fan. But on the plus side, we both love the scones and even tried to see if we could buy more on the way out! Definitely recommend as a place for vegans to check out as the staff were so accommodating!

So we went into butterscotch really late! And the service was amazing we wasn't rushed although we were at fault for the lateness. The decor is amazing but smaller then we expected but still absolutely beautiful. Now this had its pros and cons it looked amazing and we booked a table in the perfect spot as we had a small baby shower gathering but it was also a problem due to its beauty we had a group of what I would call tourists invading our space to get the perfect pic. This was the only downfall. We couldn't truly enjoy ourselves cuz someone or the other would start leaning in to get a pic and we were there for a good 2 hours and these people were there too the whole time waiting for us to leave to take their pictures which made us feel uncomfortable as we could see that they just wanted us to leave. Other than them the food was good decor amazing service perfect, I just feel like something needs to be done to ensure these toursits understand how to behave and follow rules.

Love the layout and decoration of the place. The food in general was pretty great though there were some that could be improved on e.g. mixed berry muffin. But I have to mention the scones were seriously amazing and were my favourite out of everything.

Food, venue and atmosphere were amazing! Best afternoon tea i’ve ever had. The smell of scones was delicious when we arrived and the taste matched the mouth watering smell! All the staff were super friendly, especially the chef who brought out our afternoon tea, shame front of House let the team down. Would definitely recommend. Ever item was to die for!!!

Vegan cakes were exceptionally good. A vegan scone and jam was exquisite and the meringues really impressive. the vegan options at no time felt inferior to the 'regular' ones. Only improvement could be some vegan cream with the scone?? But now I'm just being greedy.

Great response on email, able to provide a gluten free and vegan afternoon tea which was actually very nice! The normal vegan afternoon tea and the normal one were both very well received too.

I work in a place where I serve afternoon tea, and customer shouldn’t be looking for the waiter everytime they need something. All the workers were upstairs, and I wanted more sandwiches and I had to go to the waiter. Also I waited for more than 5 minutes to get a fresh cup for my new tea. The service could improve a bit, they were 3 upstairs, one of them could be downstairs with the custumers.

Amazing service and cakes were the best in London! Only thing that could make it even better would be a choice of different sandwiches also. But amazing food and will be back again! Highly recommend!

Afternoon tea was absolutely delicious - everything was lovely and was a very good selection of delicious things! Nothing too bizarre or adventurous, just really good homemade cakes and nibbles. The warm madeleines were a particularly nice touch and I’ve never had cupcakes so moist or scones so crumbly! The staff were friendly and attentive. Special thanks to them for putting the candles on one of the cupcakes for my sister’s birthday simply just by overhearing me saying it to her! It was a lovely touch (even if she made a fuss about being embarrassed) and I really appreciated the extra effort from the staff. I would definitely love to return to Butterscotch to sample the rest of the menu!

We celebrated a friends birthday here and it was amazing! Not only is the place stunning but the food is overwhelmingly delicious and filling. I cannot thank the staff enough for the lovely gluten free food that they gave to me. Thank you for making our day so special

Really great afternoon tea. Nice friendly staff on site and good service. Good combination of sandwiches that you might think quirky to start with but tasty to say the least.
