Afternoon Tea at The Ritz was very disappointing! Ambiance, Decor, Service was above average but, the actual food left a lot to be desired. Sandwiches dry one side, quite boring and really looked bland on the plate. Scones, well if you can call them that, never seen "scones" like that before, nothing like traditional ones! Fondant cakes and mince pies looked very industrial and Xmas cake extremely dry..... Have had far better tea in local hotels (much,much cheaper)and way better in London.
For me, the hours of 11am -5.30pm for serving says it all, just a tourist attraction trading on the name. I did wonder when I was given times that I could book. I waited months for 3.30pm (proper time for me) and it was a gift. I will never go again or recommend. By the way, I filled in an online survey after the event with my findings then two days later had a Christmas card - not the communication I was expecting. it's not the cost but what we got for £68.00 a head was scandalous..........
