Description: The huge sparkling Chihuly light sculpture and grand art deco of the Foyer transforms this Mayfair restaurant into a magical dining space, whilst the inviting banquettes of the Reading Room allow for more intimate dining. Frequented by famous faces for over a hundred years, it’s the perfect venue for a light meal, sipping cocktails and the best afternoon tea in London.Executive Chef Martyn Nail’s modern British menu is fresh, seasonal, extensive and yet refreshingly simple, using locally sourced seasonal produce.

“Go on treat yourself for a few hours.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2009

We had tea at Claridges as part of an anniversary present. This is another world. Staff waiting on your every need. Food excellent. Splash out on the champagne tea. Worth every penny. Tasty sandwiches, light, fluffy scones and delicious mouth watering cakes. And what a selection of teas!! Musicians playing the piano and cello all added to the ambience.

Outstanding hotel to stay in while in London. Good service, polite staff, beautiful interior of art deco jewel with 18 foot ceiling. You can eat slow and enjoy their supply of Sunday newspapers uninterrupted. Wide selection of breakfast to choose from. Tea at Claridge's is special. Musical entertainment starts at 3pm. Popular for their tea-infused jam. Top this up on their decadent scones, slather with think Devonshire clotted cream. Best to call for reservation.

“A Wonderful Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2007

My husband booked a 60th birthday suprise of afternoon tea in Claridges, a show, then staying the night in Claridges. Fom the moment we drove up to hotel entrance and was greeted by Roman, the doorman till our car was brought back to the hotel for leaving we could not of had better service and attention. The staff everywhere were so very attentive and welcoming,They truely made us feel special. The afternoon tea was quintessential "English Afternoon Tea", just delightful. Our room was a superior twin, It was enormous, so much wardrobe and draw space, spotlessly clean, as was the bathroom, large and clean, with beautiful luxury towels and bathrobs. Complimentry coffee, fruit, a bottle of champagne and chocs on arrival in the room added to the very special feeling, all delivered by extremely plesent room service.
All the little added touches were in the room, from shoe cleaning to a clothesbrush to bathroom toileteries etc etc. We had booked a smoking room and upon entry you really would not have known that it was a smoking room.
If you are expecting to walk into a bright, modern marbled hotel forget it. Claridges is Art Deco, which some might consider old fashioned, but thats what gives it its character. The black & white highly polished marbled floor as you enter through the famous revolving doors, the beautiful chandlier and the whole style of the walls, ceiling etc, the gorgous wide carpeted staircase. Being 3 days befor chirstmas I had expected Claridges to be beautifuly decorated, but infact with one huge silver decorated christmas tree in the foyer and a smaller one in the dining area, it was so tasteful, that to have had anymore would have been tacky.
We had room service for a snack after the show, that was slower than I expected but it was 11.30pm. However room service as soon as we woke up at 8.00am was excellent. Our breakfast was superb, full english, cooked to perfection. Different staff, but again so charming from the moment we entered the dining area till we left.
Roman the doorman who seemed to be on duty 24/7 was charming. He greeted us on arrival, wished us a happy evening as we left to see Sound of Music, greeted us when we arrived back after the show and had time to chat to us at 11.30pm and indeed was there to wave us off noon on Sunday. He even was more than willing to pose for some photos.
Claridges is not a bold modern hotel, like the Belagio for example in Vegas, it is an old hotel in Art Deco style with a slightly modern twist, a truely superb hotel, Without quesion we would recommend Claridges.

“Super service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2005

We just had dinner last night. We were extremely late and arrived after last orders due to no cabs in the West End for half an hour. The staff made no fuss at all and gave us a tremendous meal, even unexpectedly bringing a birthday cake and singing happy birthday upon finding out what our occasion was about. The photos of Winston and the Queen in the foyer sum the place up.
