I have been to Lady Mendl's many times over the years and have seen the prices go up steadily, but that being said, it still is a lovely place to have tea, finger sandwiches and desserts. You can have as many cups of tea as...More

I was curious to see this place. Sounded exciting and looked amazing. Sorry to say was disappointed. We had a much better tea for half the price at Wave Hill a few months ago. The place is cute and service we received from our server...More
