My thoughts:

I visited The Terrace at Harrods for Afternoon Tea as a post-exams treat.  Located on the Fourth Floor of the department store, it is the perfect place to relax after a day of shopping.  The restaurant is spacious and bright, with comfy armchairs for seating.   Visiting the restaurant itself is a great experience.  The grand and luxurious décor, in my mind, reminisces an environment close to something  you would find in an exquisite hotel such as the Bellagio, Las Vegas, unlike other tea rooms in London.  There is also the option to sit outside on the terrace.

The Afternoon tea itself is excellent value for money.  Between 3 of us we shared 2 tea platters, which was more than enough since they arrived piled high with cakes, scones, macaroons, sandwiches and much more!  The food is served along with your choice of tea or coffee.  For an additional £7 you can add a flute of champagne

The menu features a wide range of cakes and sandwiches to suit all tastes.  The restaurant also offers breakfast and lunch options.  The dark chocolate cake with a hazelnut base was particularly delicious and the scones were light and fluffy.

My favourite part of the tea was the sandwiches.  Their innovative fillings were unlike any other afternoon tea I had experienced before, and included a lobster roll! Other sandwiches included salmon, egg and beef, with different variations of bread.  The restaurant is vegetarian friendly, with the option to switch sandwiches upon request.harrods 3

 

The service was great, with welcoming, friendly and attentive staff to serve.  The terrace rooms were not particularly busy at the time of our visit (which was midweek).  However, booking in advance for large groups would be advised, to avoid disappointment.

Harrods is situated in Knightsbridge, and is easily accessible by tube, bus, car, or taxi.    Overall I would definitely recommend afternoon tea at the Terrace, Harrods, as a great place to visit for a special treat, or a tea break on a day out, due to its relaxing and comfortable environment and its delectable sweet treats and sandwiches.
