We truly had an outstanding experience!
We are very happy that we chose to do the tea tasting in addition to the “high tea” as that was a wonderful experience learning about the teas. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and wonderful in explaining all the nuances of each different tea.

The only comment I have about anything I would have “changed” is more savoury food with the scones rather than the sweet tastings. The scones with the jams are already sweet, so a little savoury (mini quiche maybe?), to balance and helpful in indulging in the materspiece final dessert course.

Otherwise, I have to say it was the best tea experience I have had.

Beautiful space and decor, outstanding service. We were there for the afternoon tea experience. Felt the food was just ok, not entirely worth the high price. Desserts were pretty but tasted just ok. Salty selection could have been a bit better, was quite basic. Would come back to try restaurant food but not for the expensive afternoon tea experience.

Great hotel, great atmosphere but the food/pastries definitely do not meet the expectations we can have for a 75-pounds afternoon tea... Sandwiches are not tasty enough, pastries beautiful from an aesthetic standpoint but they are not fine - not the level of a chef.
The staff is really nice though.
Luckily one of our kids got the kids menu so less expensive.

As in most London 5star hotels, women alone do not get the best service. In our case, we started fine but after a while the service was at the best indifferent.

A delightful experience with interesting cakes, great service, and an unusual take on a traditional afternoon tea. But come hungry--the food provided was way too much for us, and we left uncomfortably full (and didn't even eat everything).

A very lovely and beautiful, art afternoon tea in a beautiful 5* hotel. Overall, a great and beautiful experience. The food was artistic but not necessarily mind blowing. It was to a very good standard and following the art theme throughout.

Really lovely - exquisite food, excellent service and delightful ambience. I took my Goddaughter for a celebration, and the waiters made such a fuss of her - she was absolutely delighted and we both had a wonderful time.

The place is so beautiful and food was equally matching. We had picasso themed afternoon tea which was fun and delicious. Each cake resembled his work and tastes special!

This was an outstanding London experience. It far exceeded our expectations (despite knowing that it was voted best contemporary afternoon tea in London). The service was impeccable, the space was stunning, and the food was divine. Every detail was spot on. It was magical. And we left very full (as you can order more of anything!).

Excellent venue for afternoon tea - the theme was Pablo Picasso

Staff were exceptional, the food beautifully presented with a wide selection of teas. Will come again.

The beautiful but unusual design for all the menu, and of course it was brilliantly tasty! The atmosphere is very luxurious and relaxing, where we can literally stay for hours. The service was smooth and kind. Overall I have nothing bad coming up to say about this place at all! I'm sure I am coming back soon :)

What a charming and elegant way to spend an afternoon! Tea at the Rosewood is not a stuffy affair - smart casual clothes are fine. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the food was not only delicious, but also full of surprises. For example the "apples" which were not apples but carefully made cakes which were an utter delight. Muted background music in a very ambient setting (the Mirror Room) where you are far enough away from other tables to talk privately but can still feel a part of the larger experience. £65 per head to include champagne and the full afternoon tea with a great selection of tea to drink plus sandwiches, scones, "apples" and cakes and pastries - too much to eat (we took a box of cakes home) and this was really good value. We would certainly re-visit

Very elegant and stylish take on afternoon tea. Elegant yet cosy ambience whilst we appreciated the more experiment take on the sandwiches. Varied tea selection and the staff were simply wonderful. Great for special occasions.

サンドウィッチのパンがパサパサしておらず、とても柔らかい。スコーンは当然乍ら、ケーキ類のクオリティの高さには脱帽しました。
ロンドンとは思えない美味しさでした。

We had a great time. The room decor is wonderful and the scones and pastries are amazing! However, we have been a little bit disappointed by the sandwiches.
The service was correct, but could be improved at some point I think (we have to ask twice to have water, the pastries were served while we were still eating the scones, it was sometimes difficult to well understand what our Spanish waiter meant/told us, etc...)

Rosewood gives attention to detail, and we found the presentation of the Tea and the ideas behind the composition to be fascinating. The selection of teas, and the quality, was excellent. The service was very attentive and outstanding — a special experience.

One of the best afternoon teas I’ve ever had; and I’ve had a lot. Lovely ambiance, attentive but not OTT staff, and properly exciting and inventive sandwiches. Top marks.

Fabulous afternoon tea would highly recommend this place. The scones were light and fluffy, the best I have ever had and believe me when I say I’ve had quite a few.

Jam and Lemon curd was delicious

And the cakes were superb. Will I be going back yes, actually this is already the second time I’ve been there.

Don’t hesitate go go go

Booked a table for a friends birthday and hadn't fully appreciated that the clock was ticking and we'd be told to leave our table, pack up our unfinished cakes and leave the building once we'd been there for two hours!

I have had afternoon tea in several places and have never been asked to leave! It was a shame as the room is beautiful and the tea itself very special - so I would just say pay heed to the time !!!
