From Our Editors

Established back in 1850, The Athenaeum has a tradition of entertaining the elite of society. This award-winning hotel is situated in the heart of Mayfair, opposite the tranquil Green Park. It features a sizeable garden, starting with a living wall on the ground floor, and reaching all the way up to the 10th floor penthouse. Galvin is the latest restaurant from Michelin-starred London chefs Chris and Jeff Galvin, who decided to put together a menu combining traditional British cuisine with their signature dishes. The kitchen takes pride in using homegrown British ingredients provided by independent farmers from all over the UK. An array of afternoon teas is also available, as well as a range of private dining options.

Excellent service. Kept asking if I needed any refills on sandwiches and scones, or get my tea changed - unlike another nearby hotel afternoon tea I went to where they gave me a you-eat-so-much face.

I don't think I will go back there again, it was my family and my best friend birthday but when they gave the birthday cake they didn't even say happy birthday and I think it was rude. So many things happens we didn't like even the receptionist wasn't nice to us, when I got home I couldn't sleep I was so upset and I felt umbarassed I shouldn't take my family and best friend there, the next day I wanted to take them about again because we were so unhappy and I think they didn't treat us nice like they treat the other customers, my Friend who is having her birthday she wasn't happy at all. I just couldn't believe it Hilton hotel in park lane is much much better we've been to lots of places next to the restaurant and they all friendly but this one I was shock.

Turned up 10 mins early was asked to wait in reception for 13mins. Others that came after us were seated first. Not much service on the table. Didnt clear the table for 30mins Had to wait 30mins to flag someone down to get the bill. And then again to pay the bill. Have been to better venues that really look after you.

Refills on scones, sandwiches, and tea offered plus you can take away your leftovers. Lovely and friendly staff. Am thinking of trying the gentleman's afternoon tea next time. Would recommend

Had a lovely afternoon tea. Plenty to eat and was offered more if we wanted it. Never rushed. Great value with coupon. Definitely recommend.

Nice restaurant in luxurious hotel. Service friendly and efficient but the menu was boring. Maybe I got spoiled over the years in London, but I think the menu should be more inventive. To have a melon with parma ham on menu for starter, is not enough.
