Oscar is a cosy, elegant restaurant within the Charlotte Street Hotel. My friends and I have a tradition of afternoon tea catch ups and always enjoy exploring what's available.
Having a vegetarian option is commonplace in most, but what attracted me to Oscar was the possibility of gluten free and low sugar. The latter was particularly of interest as I'd just met my goal with Weight Watchers and my friends are also health conscious.
The tea is excellent value for money - and the substitutions for the low sugar option are superb. I had a yoghurt - style option with the scones, and was able to have fruits as well as tartlets and an oat based slice. The sandwiches were also excellent (as was the 'standard' option). The tea infusions too are lovely.
Service is fast, and friendly. Also if you are meeting a group it's lovely to sit in the bar area. We were extremely well looked after and not at all rushed.
We all enjoyed our afternoon immensely and would definitely return.
