The Orangery is one of my favourite places for tea in summertime. Such a lovely ambiance! I don't think anybody really goes for the food, but more the setting. Food, though is fine, with a selection of cakes, scones & other tea-time choices, as well as lunch food.
With Kensington Palace a stone's throw away, you're well away from the bustle of London. I like the whiteness of the interior & how family friendly it is.
You'll find many families gathering here – with buggies lined up out front sometimes. Doesn't detract from the experience, a lovely time & a good choice for the weekend.

This is fine if you are on a budget and haven't booked anywhere, but still want to try afternoon tea. we simply went there on a Sunday afternoon and had to wait just about 20 minutes for a table.
The service was good. We ordered scones which were very good, but when the tea came, we were given TEABAGS – unforgivable I think for a place doing afternoon tea. This is not a little cafe on the corner after all!!!
The overall experience was ok, but if you really want to do afternoon tea in style, then you can't beat the big hotels – like the Ritz. Of course you will pay much more for the experience, but it's worth it in my opinion. It's quite “casual” at the orangery.
The Orangery is of course in the lovely setting of Kensington gardens, so it's convenient to visit while you're there.
