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.
Amazing and they gave us a goody bag of cake to takeaway!

A must visit do not miss out
Lovely setting, great service and food. thanks
Lovely waitress, really took care of us. Don't be shy to ask for seconds. And be careful, there is cake after the whole afternoon tea sandwiches and little puddings. Enjoy it with a glass of Prosecco!
It’s a wonderful hotel, excellent staff and the afternoon tea was very good value.
We always look out for deals here and would recommend it to anyone
It was terrific fun. And the food was delicious. The staff were charming - warm and helpful but not intrusive. The environment and atmosphere were terrific - cosy & relaxed but elegant - and although things were going on we were easily able to have a conversation. We were friends who had not met for a while and it was perfect and I was very proud of myself for having spotted it.
