Visited today for cream tea was very disappointed just four small finger sandwiches some were dry on the ends. when we came before you can have a refill of sandwiches if you wanted but there was no offer of That Anymore. thought the price charged was quite high for what you got and on top of that they charge a service charge making £60 per head.

My sister got high tea and it was tiny. Four itty bitty sandwiches and 2 tiny scones and minuscule desserts. It sounded like he said he would renew the food but he didn’t speak English well so we weren’t sure and it wasn’t offered when she was done. My friend and I got sandwich meals and they were nothing special. I didn’t enjoy mine and my friend said hers was just ok.
Seriously, save your money and go somewhere else. Especially for high tea. Very disappointing.

It has a spacious and stylish tea/dining room - typically Harrods. We however chose to sit at the Terrace - v pleasant on sunny Sat morning. The beef burger is juicy and tasty but messy to handle. Don’t try it if this is your first date or an important business meeting. Price is Harrods, good value though, but service could be better.

So I come last year with a friend for afternoon tea and had the best one I’ve ever had.
This year it was my husbands first Father’s Day so as a special surprise I thought I’d take him for afternoon tea as it was so good before at the Georgian restaurant in Harrods.
The sandwiches where lovely however we had to ask for some more which I thought was disappointing the waiter just didn’t seem to care about service or ask us if we would like some more. The scones and cakes then come which where lovely however he didn’t ask again if there was anything else we would like I had to ask for more milk twice and we wasn’t asked once if we would like another drink so disappointed at £121 including service it’s a lot of money to spend when the service is not as it should be and we only had a pot of tea 8 sandwiches 2 scones and a few little cakes.
It’s a shame as I was so excited after my first visit. Also there was no piano playing either. It felt overall rushed.

The day was so hot and the only thing left to do was find a beautiful space, sit down and get a drink. This review won't pay homage to the great food at Harrods because fluid was all I needed. This review is about the service.

From start to finish all I saw were smiles. That was my experience of this amazing terrace bar (formerly the Georgian Restaurant), as the Mandarin Oriental's flames were being extinguished and in spite of the many helicopters circling overhead with all the drama, the staff couldn't have done more to help me and my family. I watched them greet visitors from all over the world as if they knew them; it was as if they actually enjoyed their work and wanted to be there. What a breath of fresh air.

Great seats, gorgeous mocktail, friendly, warm service and I became so relaxed I actually managed a quality 40 winks - yes, I fell a-snooze and it was just what I needed!

Love this place - will definitely return.
