We had a very good high tea at the Wolseley in June 2013. We went in during a unexpected rain storm, without reservations near the end of lunch for them. However the Maitre d made us feel comfortable, found a place in the very busy bar for the 30 minute wait. He came and retrived us and brought us to a very nice table for tea. The food was delicious, including a wide range of sandwhiches and sweets and tea. he environment as very pleasant, remaining into the early evening till the rain stopped. A great spot anytime, with an interesting history; once a prewar luxury car dealership, now done over in marble and brass. A bit of a splurge but well worth the experience.

Typical *In place* in London with typical menue ; great location, noisy, busy and uncomfortable, guests sometimes with taste, food quality occasionally good. The only consistency are the high prices. The service erratically good or poor, just luck. All in all, a great place to spend time and money, unfortunately one has to order food as well.

Our friends Amanda and Chris had their wedding breakfast at the Wolseley and often return. When my partner got the OBE and needed to go to Buckingham Palace (HRH the Prince oif Wales presiding) with me and our two children I thought we'd give it a try as it's just a short walk across the park. Luckily, I knew the date of the inesvtiture six weeks in advance and phoned to make a booking rather than go online. I emphasised that it was a very special occasion - yes I did mention the OBE - and could they give us a nice table.They delivered on that promise as we had a balcony table overlooking the main restaurant and all the celebs, On arrival flushed with the heat we were really welcomed, had great food, and alhough Pizza Express would have been cheaper it was great value for money. We then went to Birmingham for a concert but that's another story and the children dispersed back to the West County (our daughter) and Dubai (our son). Later that night the plumbing in our house burst a leak but I can't blame the Wolesley.

Great location, efficient service and really tasty and well prepared food. Difficult to get a table but you can seat in the bar area without reservation depending on how well you dress...
