We visited London right before the Covid 19 Pandemic Hit. This restaurant may have changed their seating, menu, and more.
Why did we dine here? – Harrods Tea Room is a proper place to experience afternoon tea in London. With a ton of history and outrageous selection of goods, Harrods is always on our list for a visit.
Those with dietary requirements will be pleased to find a ‘free-from’ afternoon tea, specially created by their patisserie chefs without gluten, meat, dairy or nuts.

Harrods Tea Room Food Picks:
Rose Garden (£9) is a jasmine tea based drink that hits the mark. 8/10
Afternoon Tea (£59) is the real deal. Frankly you should get 1 to share between 2 people! Everything was carefully made. You get 4 scones at the end, which is just way too much..

The King George (16.50) Sliced salted beef, pickled onions, gherkins, gruyere, and sweet mustard is their classic sandwich. 2 large portions with a tiny salad. Hearty, not too salty sandwich. 7.5/10
Mini Bread with truffle butter (6) was exceptional. Reminds us of Tartine Bread in San Francisco. Truffle butter is a little too much. 9.5/10
