Presentation was perfect. Food was delicious and good value. However found the entrance a bit confusing as it wasn't clearly signed posted. When we walked in a slightly older waiter spoke to us took my name and then left us, shortly after a lovely bubbly blonde waitress with glasses saw us to our table and took our order. I did have to ask a few times for white sugar cubes which made my tea cold while waiting. Service is key, all staff should have a head up approach ready to help.

We had afternoon tea for my nans 90th birthday. We were a large group and the service was excellent. Food really good and lots of it! Would definitely recommend.

Out of many afternoon teas that I've had this is by far the best. You really feel spoilt.

Shafroef was out waiter, he was amazing helping us take family photos constantly making sure we had hot tea . The beautiful sun come through the windows and altho this is beautiful he was straight over to make sure our eyes werrent being blinded and adjusted the blinds . He was on the ball for all our needs . We were also served by woman who advised us where baby changing was if it was needed so we felt in complete comfort as having a young baby at times can be stressful but all was made pleasant. Thank you team .

Such a lovely afternoon tea. Beautiful views and perfect service. One thing - just personal taste - we were all overwhelmed by the very tacky plastic foliage everywhere. Which was a shame because the decor and sea views are so elegant and beautiful.

Personally a few more savoury things and a few less deserts would be nice. Overall great experience. Our waitress was very attentive although the lady who delivered our tier of afternoon tea did not explain the sandwiches or deserts which would have been nice. Not a big deal however as there is a menu that informed us of what was being served in the afternoon tea.

I have been to many afternoon teas in London, including at The Ritz, National Gallery, Cafe Royal, The Yacht, to name a few and I have to say the one in the Roslin has nothing to envy those others in London. I requested a gluten free version and it was delicious. It is very hard to get amazing gluten free scones (the best are in the lighthouse restaurant in Weymouth!) but they were very good nonetheless. The sandwiches were delicious and not grainy at all and all the desserts were excellent. Very minor detail is the china that seems a bit dated but everything else is lovely. I'd say it is excellent value for money. It will be great to have a bottomless champagne or prosecco option, perhaps name it in a different way as not to attract the loud crowds that will not suit the place but I really cannot complain about anything. Having the option to change from coffee and different types of teas at any time is definitely an option I haven't seen anywhere else!

The afternoon tea was lovely I am a vegetarian which can be disappointing in the variety of sandwiches, but this was not the case . The sandwiches were fresh and thought had been put in to the ingredients. The service was great the waitress made us feel welcome and gave my husband choice for more sandwiches.

The staff were very friendly and attentive - confirmed when we sat down that one of the party was vegan, and little touches like asking if I wanted soy milk when bringing over tea rather than me having to ask for it. Brilliant service all round, and the food was lovely. Lots of vegan options.

Staff are fantastic, they are attentive but not constantly checking on guests. They look and behave professionally. The food is excellent and the choice of teas varied. We were offered extra sandwiches and fresh tea or coffee and we were not made to feel as if we had to hurry to finish. I love the surroundings and will definitely return.
