First established in Soho in 1926, Patisserie Valerie follows artisanal baking traditions brought to London by Belgian-born Madam Valerie, whose mission was to introduce continental patisserie to the English. Now boasting over 120 venues nationwide, the company adorns its cafes with the 1950s-inspired decor and serves up an array of freshly-made cakes, craft pastries, breakfasts, lunches, coffees and loose-leaf teas. Their specialities include meticulously-crafted croissants and viennoiseries, as well as homemade Italian-style gelato.
We have eaten here before and it was great, this Time not so, it started badly when the plates we were given were dirty and that set the tone for the meal, sandwiches with no filling, cakes with no filling, and not the cakes shown on the photographs in the restaurant. Also the weakest pot of tea I've ever been offered. Other people in the restaurant were complaining as well.

Amazing food with amazing service.. Even when we asked for xtra cream! 👍
Service not brilliant, dirty cup and sandwiches dry, not very busy so experience should have been better.
It was very nice the staff was great ,I’d definitely go again
Brilliant service and food was lovely but the size of the cakes are tiny??? Literally a bite
Staff were attentive and helpful, place was lovely and clean and the afternoon tea was plentiful with a good selection of items. Staff were happy to cater to half vegetarian and half meat-eater, and nothing was too much trouble for them. Really happy with this Groupon purchase - just wish I could buy more!
Great service and lovely food. Fantastic value for money! Makes a great gift.
Good variety of sandwiches. The mini quiche was very tasty. Both fruit & plain scones served with jam & cream. Plenty of cakes, we asked for a box to take some home. Staff were friendly and attentive. I would go again. Perfect to treat yourself or give as a gift
Very welcoming and accommodating staff and a lovely afternoon tea
Staff were super friendly and attentive. The only fault - the scones were a bit on the stale side. Otherwise, we really enjoyed!
