Why we love it

Small walled garden was perfect on a sunny day for our afternoon tea. It was quiet and relaxed. The scones were particularly delicious, freshly cooked and warm.

The choice of gardens/tearooms etc. to have afternoon tea was wonderful and very pleasant.

It was a shame that one of the reasons I chose The Academy was for the strawberries and cream they advertise but when asked the waitress pointed to the strawberry jam then walked away, which I thought was a little insulting. Otherwise a beautiful hotel and receptionist(s) very professional and courteous staff, very welcoming.

Pleasant experience eating outside in small walled garden on beautiful day in summer. (We chose to eat outside rather than in small conservatory or restaurant.) Food was excellent and service good. Only criticism was that tables were not cleared promptly and wood pigeon became a pest.

Personal attention shown to us.

Friendly atmosphere and delicious afternoon tea. It was lovely treat just minutes from the mayhem of Oxford Street.
