To make a booking for Afternoon Tea on a Saturday, please call the restaurant direct on 020 8394 2000.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: In accordance with the recent change in Government guidelines, for bookings from Saturday the 17th of October we are only allowed to accept reservations for guests from the same household/support bubble.
Unfortunately we cannot accept a booking for two adjoining tables to accommodate a larger party.
We have lots of outside tables available and, although we are not able to prebook these, you are more than welcome to sit on any available table for either a meal or just a leisurely drink
Unfortunately we are unable to reserve tables for drinks, this operates on a walk-in basis if space is available at the time
Thank you for your co-operation.
