“tea on the top floor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Beautiful setting for afternoon tea. Although expensive at £45 per head well worth the experience as luxurious and special. A great idea to take Mum's, Aunties and Grandmothers or treat a girlfriend.

“Not bad for a grocer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Fortnum and Mason's wine bar is diverting. Simply walking though the beautifully presented groceries on your way to the lower ground floor is a wholly pleasant experience. The wine bar does not disappoint with a range of excellent wines and a limited menu of snacks. One of our number had warmed potted shrimps which she declared excellent. The maitre d was an amusing and attentive frenchman who made a hit with the ladies amongst us. The service was excellent and the food very good.

“WOW!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

I feel that 5 is not enough!!!

F&Ms is my most favoruite place for tea!
The store is magical, classy, historic and just everything you could dream for!

The staff are fantastic and the afternoon tea is by far the best I have had in London- better than The Ritz.

“Great treat”

Excellent food and service, a lovely English treat that made you feel special. There was something very historical about being there. The atmosphere is lovely.
