Lovely staff and setting but a hit and miss menu. Bland fish dish and curdled pudding were a shame considering everything else.

I would have given it four or five stars as the food was good but the waiting time between courses was extremely long, which gave us a lot of time for discussion - bring a good friend with you!

Great afternoon tea, lovely assortment of cakes and savouries. Great choice of teas. Nice glass of prossco. So you have a chance to look around the British Museum and see the Rosetta Stone and Pantheons. The Great court restaurant is situated at the back of museum on the 3rd floor, just walk to the back of the main entrance and use the lift at the back of the bookshop. Staff very helpful.

I see it has some pretty bad reviews but it was better than average. Prosecco was cold, tea was hot and sandwiches were freshly cut. Cakes were ok [I've had better] but on the whole we really enjoyed it, staff were lovely too. The next table wanted no nuts in their cakes not because they were allergic but because they "didn't like them"!!. This was handled smoothly with other cake being brought out [which they didn't actually eat].I'd go again!

The tea was well presented on a three tier cake stand and there was plenty to eat for the two of us. We were offered a choice of tea and also given a glass of proscesco. The staff were attentive but not intrusive. We had enough time to eat and chat and had a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
