“A Truly wonderful Experience!”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

For a treat on our girls trip to London we decided to have afternoon tea at Claridges and I have to say we weren't disappointed. It was a wonderful experience and worth every penny. From the minute we arrived we were treated like royalty. The service was fantastic. We had a lovely selection of sandwiches and cakes and were told if we wanted more we just had to ask. At the end of the tea we were each given a bag of Claridges sweets as a souvenir which was a lovely touch. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

“Extraordinary experience all round”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

For business, I took a very elderly American couple here for a light lunch. Food was excellent, of course, but it was the service which made the occasion. I have never, anywhere, felt so genuinely welcomed and immaculately served as I did here, and my clients were also in a quiet heaven of their own. Very, very memorable.

“Celebrating my husband's 50th”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

Had dinner at The Foyer on a Saturday evening. Arrived early to have a few drinks, I was informed our table would be waiting anytime we were ready.
Our waiter was friendly and knowledgable. The food was lovely and most of the service was amazing until our desserts, then it was very slow, we felt like we'd been forgotten and it got a tad painful.
Our waiter hurriedly placed a tiny Bday cake in front of my husband, just before we left, well after we'd paid. We HAD been forgotten. They weren't busy but maybe had more discerning customers than us!
All of that said Claridge's is the most beautiful place ever and all the staff were lovely. My husband enjoy his surprise as much as I did and that's what counts. Yes I would go again but would make sure we weren't forgotten.
The lady in the ladies is a bit creepy ;-)

Dear "Holidaybirdy",

Thank you for your valued feeback about your recent dinner with us. It was a pleasure to read your positive comments about both the food and your waiter: it sounds as though you had a thoroughly memorable evening celebrating your husbands birthday and I will pass on your kind words to those involved.

I apologise however if you feel the service slowed, it is certainly never our intention to leave our guests feeling neglected or forgotten. I am glad that we were able to properly mark your husbands celebration and he enjoyed the surprise!

I hope we are able to welcome you back to Claridge's in the near future.

Warm regards,

Eugene Leonard

“Perfect in every way”
Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

Attended Claridges for my mothers 50th and Nan's 80th birthday.
The food and service at Claridges was excellent. Everything was cooked to perfection. The waiters ensured your glass was well topped up.
My mum and nan were given a cake platter decorated with happy birthday, which was a nice touch. They also received a Clardiges china cup in a box set as a gift!
They also have a table of complementary sweets to have when you leave.

Have a fantastic time at claridges and would recommend to anyone wanted to celebrate a special occasion.

“Clammy Lap”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Visited for my anniversary dinner.
Food and service both excellent.
My only complaint is that the napkins were maybe too thick? Perhaps consider in investing in a lighter summer napkin?
