Opened by renowned hotelier Cesar Ritz in 1906, The Ritz today still retains all the glamour and excitement synonymous with this world famous hotel. Perfectly located in a landmark position on Piccadilly in the heart of London's West End, the 136 room luxury hotel is ideally placed to suit both business and leisure visitors alike. Now totaling 111 bedrooms and 25 suites, the elegant rooms combine the original Louis XVI style interiors with modern day technology. Considered by many to be one of the most beautiful rooms in the world, The Michelin-starred Ritz Restaurant features a magnificent frescoed ceiling with west facing windows overlooking the Terrace, the Italian Garden and Green Park beyond. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, with a Dinner Dance on Friday and Saturdays. The Palm Court restaurant offers, most famously, daily Afternoon Tea service which has been popular since the hotel first opened. The stylishly updated Rivoli Bar was designed by Tessa Kennedy and features Art Deco styled interiors. Open daily with a bar menu. Private dining facilities at William Kent House, the 18th century mansion house at The Ritz, include an exquisite selection of banquet rooms and suites. Possibly the most elegant and opulent private rooms in London, William Kent House offers the perfect venue for private receptions, weddings, boardroom meetings, lunches, dinners and gala events. The Ritz London is a Grade II star listed building and in 2002 became the first hotel to receive the Royal Warrant from his Royal Highness The Prince of Wales for banqueting and catering services.

I had booked the celebratory afternoon tea for my 40th birthday. The decor and seating is very grand and elegant. But the service was poor for such an establishment - 1. Cream dropped by waiter on my husband’s phone with no apology 2. Waiter took away middle tier of afternoon tray with sandwiches on and didn’t ask me whether I had finished with them 3. Certainly rushed, bill brought to me before I even asked. Don’t expect a leisurely afternoon tea, the waiters are eager to clear tables and get second sitting in. I think the most rip off thing is that I ordered a celebratory afternoon tea expecting to get a full sized cake but instead a small 3 inch cake was given to me. It was so small it’s like those complimentary cakes that are given. So I would definitely not recommend paying extra for celebratory afternoon tea - better getting your cake from elsewhere. The afternoon tea quality is much better elsewhere - scones had no taste. I am not sure whether Ritz is much about the gimmick but no substance. Much better quality and service in other afternoon tea places in London.

So we decided to book this afternoon tea to celebrate quite a few things…our one year anniversary, us moving out of our respective places and ready for relocating abroad together. I have been to the Ritz before for dinner a couple of times and my partner has been here for one of his best friend’s wedding, but this was our first time having afternoon tea here and we were excited to be there together. The venue itself is as gorgeous as ever. Lovely facilities, beautiful surroundings and flowers. We chose the traditional afternoon tea as it was far too early to have any alcohol! The afternoon tea itself was great, lovely food (which is replenished) and presentation, and good tea choices (We tried the chai, rose, passion fruit and the ritz blend). However, the experience just left us a bit underwhelmed by the end of it. I had written that it was our anniversary in the booking notes, and we were asked by a staff member if we were celebrating something when we sat down, and my partner mentioned the above, however this was not acknowledged at all during our sitting. I’m aware that you get brought out a little cake from past experience, and the other tables had this brought out for them around us, but this did not happen for us. One of the staff members brought over the bill even though we had not asked for this yet, as we were enjoying our tea but we just felt rushed to leave. At the table next to us, the waiter was telling the two ladies there that the service was not included in the bill and this could be paid by card /cash etc. We would not have expected that to be pointed out to us, I am sure people know this by simply looking at their bill. Would still highly recommend the afternoon tea and the Ritz but we were just a bit upset at the above issues.

We really enjoyed this experience. From the lovely greeting by the Doorman, to the wonderful staff serving afternoon tea, everything was beautiful. I can't fault the food, and we all enjoyed it. The staff are what make this experience though. At £55 each it is good value we think. Thank you :)

The Ritz has a beautiful ambience and decor, no getting away from that. The price remains fair. I’ve been having afternoon tea here for many years but, tbh the service is not what it was. Years ago, you were made to feel special and felt you could take your time over a relaxing tea, trying different flavours, cakes, scones. It now feels rather rushed, tea and sandwiches replenished early, clearing tables around you, the attentiveness feels a little forced.
