If it wasn't for special offer voucher discount I would never chose Orangery to have afternoon tea - other hotels and venues offer better options for better £ value. Also, we went there in Feb and the place was freezing - we stayed in coats all the time. Windows are great to look across the park - but that is it - you go to Tate Modern or British Galery and you have every window overlooking a view to die for plus a nice tea and a cake rather than finger food selection I usually get from my local Waitrose. Disappointing.

Service was so-so and the food was just OK. I have been to many other afternoon tea venues and would not recommend this one. I was glad I didn't pay full price or I would have felt very hard done by. There was no replenishment unlike other similarly priced teas I have had and there was nothing that particularly stood out other than the location.

Portions rediculously small and do not top up sandwiches, cakes or even drinks. when asked if we could have more, were told we would have to pay. the Cake was cold as though it had been defrosted and when we mentioned this they said that they were kept in the fridge -how is that a fresh cake!!! and they did not offer us anything like more drink as a compensation to our dissapointment.

Maybe combine groupon with Palace ticket as well? And or give the option of changing teas on a second pot of tea. Was very good though.

Food for afternoon tea was ok nothing special. Sandwiches were dry; obviously had been sitting out. I took a friend from Canada to afternoon tea and I was actually embarrassed... would have expected more from a palace! Recently had afternoon tea at the Balcon Hotel and the service and food was so much better! I was very disappointed in your afternoon tea.
