A nice place for a local and traditional tea. Wait staff was on the rude side and it was pretty hot and cramped.

If you fancy a cup of tea, that's the place to take it. Wonderful tea and very british atmosphere. Small and quaint. Good food.

We visited here twice and both times the food was 'ok'. Our breakfast was served to us at different times both days and the portions are quite small.

30 pounds for 2 cups of tea and two cups of coffee, two portions of sandwiches ( all in all 3-4 slices,) 6 halves of scones with clotted cream and jam. Receipt handwritten was not handed to me. They trick tourists.

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming

I'm not sure to be entirely honest although there was a man with a laptop working away when we were in one of the mornings. Perhaps it might tell you on their website. It's more a place for having a quick bite! Sorry... More
