The food was great and the place was really high class. The only issue was the fact that we had just got done sight seeing and were not dressed as well as others. We felt that we did not get the same service as the others eating there.
We had a lovely afternoon at the Grosvenor. It is expensive for afternoon tea but it is a special one off that we would recommend. There was so much food we did not need dinner that evening. Music entertrainment provided was lovely and suited the occassion. If high tea is what you want to do, then we would not hesitate to recommend this. Enjoy a little luxury!

An excellent opportunity to experience an absolute British tradition!
This was fantastic, I had booked this for my girfriend's birthday and she loved it, as did I. The service was friendly and the food was amazing. Very good experience overall!
Definitely worth the experience, although I could not manage to eat everything!
Even though we were running late, we were made to feel welcome. The service was impeccable, the setting beautiful, and the food good.
The setting was a perfect English afternoon tea with all the traditions one would expect. It certainly whetted the appetite for a lovely trip to London.
Enjoyed this very much.
It was good, but very expensive. I think you could find the same thing for less money.

The tea experience was great! It was in a very nice and classy place. This is a good bargain for what you get.
I wouldn't do this afternoon tea again, the scones were dry and the rest of the food was nothing that special. The seating was very uncomfortable my husband couldn't even put his legs under the table because it was to low. However if you can't manage to eat the selection they do provide you with a bag to take it home (but you need to ask)
Unfortunately the day we were scheduled for Tea, the normal room was being used for a function, so that the tea was served in the cramped dark Library. It didn't have the same feel. We were sitting around with stuffy business men, conducting business, rather than looking out the lovely large windows with the sun streaming in. Our server merely dropped our Tea and left. She had a very, could care less, attitude. We had to ask what the sandwich selections were, as she did not tell us what they were. She then returned with a veg mix when we asked for an alternative selection. We also had to ask for our champagne, that we were to get. I'm not sure if I would go back to Tea here. There so many other spots that seem to serve it now. That is a lot of money to pay for inattentive staff, and scones.
I would certainly recommend people to this - it is/was a very enjoyable experience. Would have liked to know a little of the history of how it started. Grosvenor House is just round the corner of Oxford Street which I am sure is brilliant, but don't go too far down because it is a nightmare, whether it was late night I do not know, if you go there you would be so weary you would not enjoy the afternoon tea - so do it as soon as you get to London and it will be one enjoyable experience you would not want to miss.
