I've had lunch here once and visited for afternoon tea once. I last visited for lunch, sandwiches are nice, slightly overpriced however the main thing is that the few times I've gone the service has been a bit hit and miss. One of the ladies is very nice but the others only smile once you give them a tip!! I... More

First visit to one of these restaurants. Service was slow and staff seemed to have a problem with providing tap water. Dined outside and staff seemed disinterested with several coming up to ask the same question. Quite a long wait for food and when it did arrive seemed expensive for the small portions. I had a vegetarian breakfast which left... More

We came for breakfast, friendly staff, nice menu selection, nice atmosphere, food was delicious, the prices i thought was a little on the expensive side but i suppose you get what you pay for and as i enjoyed my meal i wasnt bothered. Would recommend a visit.

It looked very promising from outside and smelled very nice as we stepped in, but this was the best of our visit. There were plenty of space but none of the staff or the manager took any attention of our appearance. We felt there was no customer care at all. Finally we had our order (breakfast), Looked very promising but... More

I loved my visit to Patisserie Valerie near Covent Garden. The choice and quality of the patisserie was above expectation and I felt like a child in a toy shop! My only critisism was they toasted the scone I ordered with jam and cream. I ate it like that as I thought it was their speciality way of presenting scones... More

Shame really as promised so much and delivered very little - macaroons worst l have ever had - try the ones from Lidls, there frozen and taste a million times better. Will be giving it a miss from now on.

We had pastry from several of their stores in London locations and they did not disappoint. Looking at them is a feast for the eyes - makes your mouth water if you are into pastries, and these are some of the best we've eaten. We bought cake for a friend's birthday and really splurged, as these treats are not cheap.... More

Admittedly it was for breakfast and a good English breakfast it was too. With Illy coffee it was perfect

Not a great place this. Food was average and ok for a quick bite but nothing more. Waiters are also quite miserable and bordering on rude. The door to the kitchen was also ajar and that kitchen is one of the worse I've ever seen. Dirty plates stacked high and not enough room for the staff to move around. I... More
