Bought a Living Social voucher to take my daughter for afternoon tea after a visit to Buckingham Palace. Tophams is a five minute walk away.After reading previous reviews I wasn't expecting to be wowed, but upon arrival I was pleasantly surprised.The hotel lobby and restaurant are pleasant enough, with quirky decorative items and lovely lamps. The dining room was bright and clean and the staff were friendly.
The cakes were definitely shop-bought, in fact as we were sitting I saw numerous members of staff coming in with Sainsbury's bags (so not Tesco cakes after all!), but so what? If I'd wanted hand crafted patisseries I'd not have bought a Living Social voucher and would have gone to the Savoy. My daughter wanted afternoon tea, with cakes on a stand, I wanted a cool glass of fizz and we were both satisfied. For what we wanted, and what we got, I would definitely go back for afternoon tea.
