Firstly I must say, the grounds and the hotel are absolutely beautiful, and I'm sure that the rooms and facilities are excellent; this review is for the afternoon tea only. I've been to a few afternoon teas in central London and had very high hopes for South Lodge as it's a 5* hotel. The tea and coffee menu is extensive....

Lovely building and fantastic room. But the service in the restaurant realy lets them down, felt unwanted, had to ask for menus and ask why we were still waitingf for our order to be taken 50 minutes after reservation time, no apologise was offered for delay. This would have gone a long way. Food was excellent!
