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.

Went without a reservation for tea but the staff were extremely reluctant to provide any service even though the tea salon was half empty. Refused to even look up a possible reservation and provided us with a card to call. Not the attitude from times...More

Sadly didn't come for tea this visit. We stopped in to replenish our dwindling supply of excellent tea. I always bring an extra bag to stuff with goodies and presents. Bought loads of rea, biscuits and Turkish delight. Fortnum and Mason is a British icon...More

Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed
thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of
London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is
haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is
vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic
streets will reveal that Michelin stars and
chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even

Hi - it's £45.00. Tried to post a link, but it's not allowed - google Fortnum Mason barber. Hope your husband enjoys It!

Definately yes. There is a tea area/cafe on the ground floor but for the 4th floor where we went you must book. Uniquely Fortnum's call you 48 hours before to check you are still coming! Hope you found this useful.
