Description: The centre piece of the five-star Langham, London hotel, the dazzling Palm Court is famed as the place where the tradition of afternoon tea was born over 140 years ago, an indulgence that lives on today. Through hand crafted iron gates, guests enter an enchanting wonderland of deep reds and purples, plush fabrics and glamorous surroundings. The aromas of tea leaves brewing intermingle and the Palm Court pianist will help create a relaxing ambience of serendipity. The afternoon tea devotee can celebrate this timeless ritual of beautiful cakes, miniature pastries, scones and delicate finger sandwiches with a few unique twists and over 30 blends of tea to choose from. Having already been awarded Tea Guild membership, The Palm Court is also very proud to announce that Palm Court's Afternoon Tea has been awarded Tea Guild's Top London Afternoon Tea 2010 Award, considered to be the Oscar of the tea world.

Delicious afternoon tea, made even better by the outstanding service of the professional and friendly staff. My partner and I were celebrating my 40th birthday and loved the added touch of a birthday cake with candle, serenaded by the pianist playing "Happy Birthday". When we asked for the cake to be boxed so that we could take it home for... More

As my first choice venue for tea in London is closed for refurbishment, I went for The Langham. The room isn't particularly attractive and there was a piano tinkling away. We had ordered four vegetarian teas but no mention was made about this when we checked in. I was horrified at the state of my chair - stained and had... More

Arrived today at the scheduled time only to be told that the table wasn't ready so had to wait in the bar. Took almost an hour before the sandwiches were served. The waiters came and offered a small selection of sandwiches and didn't serve everyone, they seemed to forget. Had to ask for more sandwiches, they weren't refilled at all.... More

Four of us met for afternoon tea at the Langham. The Palm Court has a slightly retro-deco feel, and there was a pianist playing "songs from the musicals" style of music. The service was truly attentive. There is (of course) a tea menu, with a wide choice of English, China and green teas; with a Tea Sommellier to guide you... More

The ambience at palm court is what made us enter this dining room, very attentive waiters and staff. Quiet and unobtrusive service with a free glass of champagne every evening makes this establishment stands out from the crowd. Recommended

I took my friend to The Langham for Afternoon Tea for her 40th birthday. We were warmly greeted, welcomed to our table and our cloakroom tickets brought to our table. We chose the champagne afternoon tea and the sandwiches were delicious. The beetroot bread was so lovely and I loved the chicken and ham roll too. The waiter were very... More

I have been here on numerous occasions and this time attended with friends for a pre-Christmas and 50th birthday get-together. Palm Court are focusing on a Wedgewood afternoon tea, with beautifully decorated pastries. We had champagne, an amuse bouche as well as the sandwiches, pastries and scones that you would expect, with a pianist playing in the background. Lovely lull... More

I have been to the Langham several times before and have always been absolutely thrilled with the quality of the food and the service. This time however, I came away thoroughly disappointed and doubting whether I will even go back there. I used to go in the evenings and get the 1865 high tea which would include a hot dish... More

The afternoon tea was absolutely decadent. The ceilings are high and the renovations were tasteful and classical yet not too old fashioned. I loved it when the pianist started playing jazz Christmas / Pop music. Even my husband who was opposed to the 'girly tea thing' absolutely loved the food, tea and atmosphere! We loved it so much that we... More

I have been to have tea at the Palm Court a few times now - and when I say tea, I don't mean Afternoon Tea. That is what I like about the Palm Court - one can just order a pot of tea and linger over it without any pressure. And they almost always give you a couple of cookies... More
