We had a great time at the tea room. The service was great and the food was pretty good. A few items for the kids were a bit too sophisticated for their tastes but they loved the sausage roll and the Cadbury chocolate sandwich. Great selection of tea too!

It was a great experience for me and my daughter. We love to have mother/daughter tea! It was decorated very well, the food was excellent. The only downside, was the noise. They are very popular, so lots of people were there having tea. It was hard to have a conversation. Overall, it was practically perfect in everyway!

Mary Poppins themed tea was made fun and enjoyable by the staff reading quotes and singing/dancing. They were also dressed up which brought a light-hearted feel to the tea time. Made me smile. Food was yummy, but could improve with just a bit more flavor.

I love your salads and how well balanced the entire meal was. And the Britannia tea was AMAZING! That was smart to provide that tea for us to sample, otherwise, I would not have thought to order it. I even bought a bag. The doll in the middle of the women's stall was kind of creepy. I would definitely recommend this place for my friends who love afternoon teas.

The table service and set up was really nice. I recall the owner would describe the teas, but not sure this happened this time. I would have liked a few more savory bites. The sweets outweighed them by 2:1. The ambience was great, and we were able to stay at our table for 2 hrs which was great!

Multiple servers created miss steps. We had to ask for our third pot of tea and it came at the last minute so we couldn’t enjoy it. The bill was unclear that the price was for each of us. The final full total was not listed. That was confusing. Otherwise, the tea, atmosphere, food and service was delightful! I will definitely come back again.

This was our first time to Brittania. What a great experience. The service was wonderful, the food was very fresh and flavorful, the tea was excellent and there were so many choices to pick from.

As usual, the owner and staff of the Britannia Tea Room (formerly Shakespeare's Corner Shop Tea) put on a wonderful tea event. The Sherlock Holmes foyer is a great place to sit and wait in, and the ambiance of the Mad Hatter Tea Room is terrific for groups and very comfortable. The food, teas, and service are excellent.

I rarely write reviews but this was such a delightful experience! The love and thoughtfulness that was poured into the themes, menu, and decor was truly so impressive. Oftentimes you experience "trendy" spots like this and it just feels like an over-hyped soulless money-grabbing scheme but Britannia Tearooms genuinely has HEART!

Everything was well though, magical and fun. I will definitely will be doing it again! The reason I gave the food a 9 is because the deserts were a little too sweet, my personal choice would have been a little more mild- I love dark chocolate! However everything tasted fresh and great. Thanks!!

This tea time was very fun!! I went to the lord of the rings theme tea. The theme was great for people who both did and didn’t know too much about the series, and all the food and tea was delicious! The employees were ALL very kind and helpful, I felt very relaxed and filled with enjoyment throughout the whole event. Great place for tea, friends, family, and fun themes!!

This was such a fun event! Very well thought out, I enjoyed the creativity of the names and the quizzes. We were in the back corner so perhaps service was a tad slower than the other tables but we still enjoyed our time immensely. My friend was gluten free and her suggestion was to also give the gluten free items fun names

It was a lovely day and I could've had the tea changed if I'd asked but mostly, as a cranky almost 80 former English teacher, the mixed metaphors were my only bother. The bathroom decor was a total hoot! Yes. We'll go back.

When the tea room opened, my friend and I were the second group seated in the tea room, we had reservations. However, we were seated in one the worst tables in the room. In the corner, surrounded by two walls. My elbow kept bumping into the wall. My friend does not like making a fuss, so I did not ask for a different spot. We moved the table 8 inches away from the wall. Why were we given this table when every table, but one, was not occupied? Do better.
