First opened 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 a 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 done this deal before at McCarther Glen in Ashford and it was great but this time the scones where smaller so small. the sandwiches was so thin and on a couple of them on one side had hardly any bread on it,
One of the pots of jam had already been opened and only half full. So as I say not a good experience this time but before it was good.
food Excellent nothing to much trouble staff great everything first cl
It wasn't the head office, it was Canterbury restaurant. Excellent.
I have been to a few of PV afternoon Teas but Romford was not the best experience. The service was not good at all. The cakes were not fresh. I don’t think I will be booking anymore
15mins to be seated at a wet table in Old Compton St, waited another 20mins before anyone came to serve us.. ordered one festive afternoon tea and one standard (both with proseco). Another 15mins.. sandwiches were dry, cakes soggy and quiche had been microwaved to warm!...proseco forgotten ! Arrived just as we finished eating... food terrible....so disappointed as was a birthday treat....
Had a lovely afternoon tea with my daughter. Food was fab and drinks refillable, even the hot chocolate. I did go during a busy Saturday and the venue had a cafe feel. Worth the money and would go again
