Champagne afternoon tea costs £55 at the Hotel Cafe Royal so isn't cheap and costs more when you compare it to the Ritz, the Wolseley and so on. However, I can confidently say that as a treat, it's worth it. You do get a lot more for your money than a lot of other afternoon tea offerings, including a savouries course, a palette refresher, biscuits, a sweets course and then the offer of slices of larger cakes on display. The savouries were all excellent - classics with slight twists such as cream cheese and cucumber with beetroot. The sweets were all excellent too. The Oscar Wilde Bar, where the tea is taken is absolutely stunning and the ambience, with a pianist, is sublime. Staff can't do enough either.
A must do for afternoon tea lovers.

Everyone should visit this brilliantly refurbished room, at least once. Despite it's name it's a bar not a restaurant, merely a bar. The prices are steep (think Claridges or Connaught) ; £25 for a glass of their cheapest champagne (Tattinger). The room though is exquisite, quite the most beautiful bar in London. Unfortunately the room was mostly empty when I visited so it lacked atmosphere, but the service was good and the excellent background music helped. When word gets out it's going to be hard to get a table, so go soon.
