Afternoon tea with my mum and my gran. We have been to afternoon tea here several times and it never disappoints. The food is lovely and there is lots of it. The hotel and foyer is beautiful and I would recommend this experience.

We booked a table in the "reading room" and asked if we could have the same table as when we visited a year ago to have lunch. We were given the same table and so commenced a most lovely evening where we enjoyed excellent food served by the most friendly and unintrusive staff in a setting that was relaxed and... More

I booked a lunch to celebrate my mother's birthday. The service was excellent with knowledgable, efficient and happy staff. We were attended to without delay and left wanting for nothing. We ordered salads and they were the tastiest I've every had; I've not had tofu like it. The desserts were heaven and to top it off, my mother was presented... More

If, like most, you cannot afford to stay at Claridge's, why not just try their excellent breakfasts? You would be well advised to book in advance and to note their dress code of "smart casual". The ground floor foyer - across from the main entrance on Brook Street - is a grand, mirrored, art deco room, sumptuously fitted out, and... More

Its one of the iconic places to do tea. It is set in a very grand dining room, the cakes and sandwiches are very tasty and they have a very big selection of teas. Service is excellent and attentive as you would expect from such a prestigious place. Great place to take someone for a special occasion. Regards Omar

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
