Owner description: From a small grocery store in Piccadilly in 1707, has grown a celebrated store with an international reputation for the exclusivity and quality of the products it sells. Fortnum's Food Hall is an irresistible display of gourmet pleasures, from chocolates and biscuits to smoked salmon and Stilton, vintage marmalade and seasonal produce. Passionate about provenance, we are proud to recommend every jar, spoonful and slice for our hungry customers.

“Fun British Department Store Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

My wife and I are not hardcore shoppers but we had a great time in this multi-storey department store. The merchandise is tastefully British and the staff are friendly and helpful. There is something for everyone here but the prices reflect the fact that this is a London luxury department store.

“Afternoon Tea at its Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

Loved everything about this place!!!! The shop itself is amazing and the afternoon tea in the Diamond Jubilee room was an amazing experience, it has been done to a really high standard and really makes it feel like a special experience.. What I really liked is although it is quite posh you don't feel out of place and you are treated the same as anyone else would be.. The tea, cakes, sandwiches and scones are beautiful and the fillings sooo tasty, we are going back in December and cannot wait!

“Breakfast treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014

Sadly my visits to London are less frequent than they used to be however we visited last weekend and as usual it was well worth leaving home early to get there for early breakfast at Fortnum's. This breakfast never disappoints and the staff are very attentive,it is a real treat and one that always gives pleasure.

“Fantastic High Tea Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

My wife and I made reservations at the Diamond Jubilee Tea Room for afternoon tea at 3:00pm during our first trip to London! It was absolutely amazing! We enjoyed taking time out of our busy schedule to relax and soak in the experience. The scones and other snacks were great! The tea was the star of the show! We are far from tea experts and the many tea choices were overwhelming. Our waitress kindly guided us through the selections and helped us pick out the perfect tea to our taste preferences. It was heavenly! We had fun browsing about the store after our tea. There was a lot of loose leaf tea and accessories.
