The Dorchester occupies the most prestigious acre and a half of real estate in the world, in the heart of Mayfair overlooking the glorious green expanse of Hyde Park. The preferred hotel of British society, The Dorchester embodies the highest service values whilst its design and character exude 1930s glamour with a contemporary edge. Prized for its spacious and beautifully designed rooms and suites, The Dorchester’s restaurants and bars - Alain Ducasse, China Tang, The Grill and The Promenade – also attract Londoners and the glitterati alike. The Dorchester Spa was recently transformed to create the most desirable and indulgent pampering destination in London with a uniquely named Spatisserie for tea and cake.

As we are stopping at The Dorchester it would be rude not to have afternoon tea here. The surrounding was absolutely lovely and so relaxing, the food was so nice with plenty of flavouring. They also catered absolutely brilliantly for my wife who is a vegan and she also loved the food. Our server Anuar was brilliant, and with a great sense of humour always made us laugh and went out of his way to cater for us. As I’m not a big tea drinker I decided to have vodka with my afternoon tea. I would just like to say a big thankyou to Anuar, the chef and everyone at The Dorchester for their kind generous hospitality.

We had afternoon tea at the Dorchester and it exceeded my expectations. The service was very attentive and personal and the staff were very friendly. The selection of sandwiches were great and very tasty, along with the scones, teas and cakes. They replenished our plates as we desired and we left feeling full to the brim. We went for my birthday and they brought out a surprise small birthday cake and sang to me which was a lovely touch. Highly recommend!
