    On point tea set with a choice of savoury dish instead sandwiches which I much prefer. Scones were up to standard. Nom!

    Awesome place for coffee and tea fanatics! All kinds of biscuits and sweets, a grocery shop downstairs, and an overall chill department store. Ground floor restaurant has great food!
  • Arianna B.
    The tea selection was good, but the place in itself is totally worth visiting. Check upper floors - the merchandise selection is unique!

    Athmosphere, cafe 1st floor: tea will be re-served with hot water, soup, butter squash salad, bakery, macarons!! <3 sadly the waitress' behaviour can differ a lot good luck we had the nice one

    My fav luxury retail store in London. Get yourself a box of Smoky Earl Grey tea, a great treat during winter afternoons.

    A place to go for some Britishness. Although they also have some selection of Frenchness I.e foie gras and French eclair. Buggy friendly too!

    Afternoon tea is delish, but the best thing is the savoury selection and specially the "eat as much as you can" approach. Pretty relax and enjoyable.

    Favorite specialty retailer in London. Great for little gifts and gourmet snacks. Stop in and try their high tea.

    A great place to get that Christmas spirit. Nothing beats the ambiance of this mall. The teas on ground level, the very sophisticated gentleman store on top next to the Christmas decoration department

    The "Royal" shopping centre. Here u will find all the official deli food, tea, wine suppliers of the royal family & palace. Too expensive. Just visit for a quick look as an attraction.

    This is THE place for high tea. The food is delicious and portions are plentiful. The staff treats you like royalty without pretense. I'll definitely be back.

    Absolutely beautiful. The chocolate eclairs were better than the ones I had in Paris. Also, the new french pudding is to die for. I must come back again to try the tea and scones.

    Beautiful store! Has a great afternoon tea (about £45 per person), gourmet tea shop and food items! Must see in London!

    Head up to the top floor (Diamond Jubilee Tea Room) for afternoon tea. You can make your reservation at OpenTable. Don't rush. Give yourself 2-3h.

    Great service and love the offer of 3 different set of afternoon teas: sweet tea, refular, and savoury, all for £44. This is more of a touristic "been here done that" kind of afternoon tea.

    Excellent teas. Do not waste your money on the coffee. Sales rarely offer any significant bargains.

    This place is amazing, you can find a selection of the best European food. A visit to London is not complete if you don't visit it.

    Very classy traditional department store, good for shopping for house's branded food gifts: tea, biscuits, chocolates. Nice stationary selection.

    Lots of people never go beyond the food court and the jewellery gallery upstairs is worth a look. And they'll serve you a cocktail while you browse.

    The place to have afternoon tea in town, especially with your mother. Great experience. There are also five fine floors to experience fine shopping. A lovely experience.

    My favourite department store in London! Extravagant and expensive but great to window shop. Best food hall out of Harrods & Selfridges.

    Great for their food hall and some of the best tea and coffee in London. Quieter than Harrods to look around the upper floors.

    At the tea restaurant on the 4th floor they judge you and if they find you wanting they park you on the couches until you leave of your own accord rather than seating you.

    If it's good enough for the Queen! Buy some Biltong it's fresh like its from South Africa. The wine and whiskey shop has a great and exotic selection or vintage wines and limited old whiskeys

    Don’t be overwhelmed by all the deliciousness on the ground floor, because Fortnum & Mason has more to offer! Check out their amazing cookery section (1st floor) and perfumery area (2nd floor)!

    what not many people tells you: apart from a great selection of teas it has the same kind of gourmet products that Harrods, even in a wider variety, in a much more friendly and less crowded place

    Make sure to make a visit to the "Diamond High Tea", here on the 4th floor of Fortnum & Mason. The sandwiches, scones, & bite size pastries, were all to die for, followed down by a cup tea of choice!

    The classiest, most I-could-get-lost-in-here stores in the world. Every detail is perfected in this department store -- beats Harrods by a mile. Has great coffee and tea selection.

    You have to check out the forth floor. You will thank to me esp. the notes on paper stoppers. e.g. If you want a good relationship buy a horse :)

    At the Fountain bar. Tea and cake for me and tea and scones for my partner, it is expensive but great quality so you feel like royalty. Choc cake was very yummy. Tea was delish.

    The best for an authentic British Afternoon Tea - perfect finger sandwiches, beautiful cakes & scones, wide range of teas. They replenish everything as often as you want, for no extra charge.

    There is no way to produce foie gras humanely. To force-feed birds until their livers swell to up to 10 times their normal size is morally repugnant. StopFortnumAndMasonFoieGrasCruelty.com

    Fortnum's set-piece hampers are English classics but it's with the twists on essentials where the Queen's Grocers really excel. Try their black sugar or the sublime Bordeaux butter with smoked salt. Read more

    You could spend hours just looking at the wall of jam on the main floor, but head upstairs to discover unique bath, kitchen, tea, and garden accessories.

    Look above the entrance to the famously exclusive department store, because on the hour every hour, Messrs Fortnum and Mason themselves emerge to greet each other.

    For a treasure trove of festive delights, head to Fortnum & Mason where hampers come packaged in signature F&M-stamped wicker baskets, and for special orders, come delivered on a horse drawn carriage.

    The cocktail list is well thought out. It is inspired by the 18th Century “Cabinets of Curiosities” & pays tribute to Jerry Thomas, one of the true greats of cocktail making, with a list of his favs. Read more

    Check out the food halls. Much more English in feel then Harrods. Their jams and teas are second to none. Try the Strawberry-Rose they have out in the summer.
