Venue: Georgian Restaurant, 3rd Floor Harrods, Knightsbridge, London
Food: Afternoon Tea
Group: 5 adults
Date: 20th November 2008 PM
Probably one of the UK’s flagship establishments offered very little in the way of exceeding the customers expectations. We were a party of 5 all meeting up for a special occassion wanting to get into the Xmas spirit experiencing what should be one of the UK’s finest establishments. We arrived about 14:30 and on Thursday 20th November 2008 and only wanted an afternoon cream tea. In essence we were very disappointed.
- China plates were worn and showing clear signs of dishwasher fatigue
- The jam for the scones although in a Harrods labelled jar was clearly mass produced much like the sort of thing you would get at some cheap seaside resort
- The scones were cold which gave the impression they were not fresh
- The furniture was tatty at best and extremely dated
- The tea was served in a stainless steel pot with no extra hot water to dilute or add as required
- Butter was served in little mass produced tubs that were presented with their lids taken off
- There was only one tiny pot of jam for two scones
- Main food hall was dated and felt cold lacking intimacy and character.
Would not recommend going there which is a great shame as Harrods has such amazing international appeal.
