Description: Afternoon Tea at The Waldorf consists of a mouth-watering array of delicate pastries, homemade cakes and scones with clotted cream and strawberry preserve. Diners can indulge in some luxurious champagne and choose from a wide range of distinct blends of tea, imported by specialist tea suppliers from around the world. The Waldorf, known as The Waldorf Hilton since January 2004, has an illustrious history and rich heritage dating back to its opening in 1908. Set in the heart of London's theatre land, close to Covent Garden, the hotel has attracted a string of stars from all over the world. Gertrude Lawrence, Sir Thomas Beecham, Elizabeth Taylor, Pavarotti, Pierce Brosnan and Dame Judi Dench are just a handful of show business icons that have stayed at the hotel. Open on select Sundays, Palm Court is the spacious, elegant and versatile heart of The Waldorf Hilton. It features an historic, impeccably styled interior, with fabulously restored balustrades lending an air of chic decadence and sophistication. Afternoon Tea Dance offers contemporary afternoon tea with a variety of finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones with Devonshire clotted cream and strawberry jam, delicate homemade pastry cakes and choice of many teas and infusions, a frothy cappuccino or a black coffee. A live 5-piece band will entertain with all the ballroom classics, while guests dance away on a Sunday afternoon in the historical Palm Court. All this is available for £49.00 per person only.

“Lovely!”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

We had an amazon local deal for the Walford, for a 3 course meal and glass of champagne which was great value!
The choice we had was plenty and we both thoroughly enjoyed our meals, especially the lamb main course. My only grumble would be that there were some pieces of bone left in the pancetta wrapped around my asparagus starter.
We paid extra for some vegetables and wine but the total bill was excellent value.
The waiting stuff were charming and attentive. However, I did find the maitre d's attitude slightly changed once she realised we were dining on a voucher - she was lovely to the people in front of us but she didn't even offer to take our coats, we had to ask her too. Felt she was a little stuck up but it didn't ruin our experience.

The restaurant is beautiful. It was a little quiet when we were there as we dined fairly early (half 7).

Would love to come again and eat off the a la carte menu for a special treat!

“Very disappointing”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

Were very disappointed with our meal, had a very long wait, were told it was a problem in the kitchen, when it did arrive it was only just luke warm and not of a very high standard, I had a jacket potato with my chicken meal that seemed as if it had been cooked 24hrs earlier and reheated (but not hot as the crème fraiche hadn't melted). This was a special Birthday meal and quite frankly we were very disappointed. The cost of the food was certainly not justified by the quality!

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed 18 February 2014

The staff are always smiling, they cannot do enough for you. The food was first class, I had lamb cutlets, with asparagus and mange tout, the jacket potato was nothing special however and I did not eat it, the skin could have been much crispier. The lamb was perfect. The steak which my friends ate was also cooked to perfection and everyone had a great evening. The starters of scallops and mushroom soup were also delicious. The restaurant itself is an ornate room with pillars and chandeliers - lovely! Well worth a visit if staying at The Waldorf.
