From Our Editors

First opened in Soho in 1926, Patisserie Valerie follows artisan baking traditions brought to London by Belgian-born Madam Valerie whose mission was to introduce continental patisserie to the English. Now boasting over 120 multiple venues nationwide, the company adorns its cafes with a 1950s-inspired decor and serves up an array of freshly-made cakes, craft patisseries, breakfasts, lunches, coffees and loose leaf teas. Their specialties include meticulously crafted croissants and viennoiseries, as well as homemade Italian-style gelato ice cream.

Staff very friendly, but overall the tea for two was somewhat overpriced if I compare with others I've had locally. At the price advertised, I would expect a choice of tea, a pot of hot water to refill, and patisseries and sandwiches somewhat more refined. The scones were lovely, warm and fresh. I was hoping for something a little more posh :/

The afternoon tea was really good value, we didn't manage to eat it all, so the rest was boxed up so we could take it home. The atmosphere was buzzing and the staff were friendly.

Went to a Patisserie Valerie in Oxford It was not busy but staff were very disorganised They gave our food to someone else who had ordered after us which meant we had to wait ages People at the next table were also complaining as their food was cold and waited ages just to get it heated up Nowhere near as good as the branch in Henley

A great afternoon tea, enjoyed at the Reading branch. Staff were so attentive and we didn't feel rushed at all. Highly recommended.

Cakes were nice but their tea was a tea bag squashed into a ball meant for loose tea. This meant the water couldn't flat through the tea bag well and leaves move in the bag so it was as weak as anything. Also given marmalade with scones not jam which was not very nice at all.
