Booked afternoon tea with friends on Oct. 27. Although unlimited refills on sandwiches, scones, however, quite pricey. The sitting area in the garden room was private and provided a really nice atmosphere. The tea was excellent, really love the Assam tea with milk and sugar....More

Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed
thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of
London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is
haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is
vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic
streets will reveal that Michelin stars and
chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even
