Great to spend time enjoying the afternoon tea at such a significant place. Slightly disappointed with the service, which was very slow and sometime felt they have forgot about it. A long gap between servicing the tea and bringing out the sandwiches does not fit very well. We had to beckon the staff twice. There people arriving later than us were served quicker! May be just one of those days, the staff seemed friendly.

Vi fik hurtigt et bord. Betjeningen var god og ventetiden var rimelig i forhold til tidspunktet. Der manglede en kage fra kortet og der var ikke en erstatning for denne, så det tæller ned i bedømmelsen. Maden var rigtig god og der var spændende forskellige sandwicher og kager. Så alt i alt var det en god oplevelse.

It was very crowded. But the staff was very friendly. The tables are set in the beautiful atrium of the British Museum. Afternoon tea was very filling with scones, jam, clotted cream, several sandwiches and miniature cakes. This is served with Earl Gray.
