I felt the experience of an afternoon tea was a necessity for our family's first visit to England. Time and research got away from me and I made the reservation the day of the seating - a Saturday (the last seating is earlier during the week). I was right to feel lucky. The servings there are unlimited but it's good to let your waiter know that you may be interested in another serving. It was a proper tea with silver flatware and teapots (dripless), crisp white linens with intimate table arrangements. The room was also visually perfect as I wanted more old english (think medium stained oak paneling/ wainscoting) - deep red, brown or taupe seats of suede or velvet with leather trim rather than crystals and shiny. The lighting fixtures were a bit of a surprise - midcentury modern. We had a lovely location in the first of three rooms, in a corner nook with a high table (some are coffee table level). Our waiter was attentive and never intrusive. It was very relaxing and a perfect way to spend our last evening in London. I think we left around 8:30pm, thoroughly sated.
