You and a friend can now take afternoon tea with bubbly at The Academy -- a boutique Georgian townhouse in Bloomsbury -- and save 43%.

Why we love it

  • The 18th-century hotel "offers a sense of sanctuary just yards from the bustle of Bloomsbury and Oxford Street", says Frommer's
  • You can take your afternoon tea in the Alchemy restaurant, the library or the private garden on warmer days

No I wont be returning

I am really disappointed with my experience, when we arrived even though I called weeks in advance to ensure they would be able to meet the parties dietary requirements and to book, they had no record of our booking. After waiting an hour for our afternoon tea it was very disappointing, we had no waiter as such and we were sat an hour before we had as much of a glass of water. The reason I called and booked in advance was because two members of the party required a vegan option due to allergy problems, it was clear this was not prepared for. When the meal arrived we simply had lettuce and cucumber in a dry sandwich followed by oat biscuits and more oat biscuits instead of scones or cakes, which due to the advance booking, I don't think is acceptable! It was clear that they went out to the shops and picked up 2 packets of biscuits! As this booking was made for a friend as a treat I am very upset with how the day turned out and the fact they dealt poorly with my our dietary requirements.

The afternoon tea was nice

The lack of service. No one asked if we wanted more tea!

Staff very helpful, efficient and friendly. The academy is a lovely building and very comfortable.

The scones were good.

I had booked a place in the garden and was told we could not eat there. The Prosecco was corked twice. The sandwiches had been made a long time before and were curling up and almost toasted in texture. The cheese in them was sweating. The decor was poor (furniture scuffed). We were seated right outside a toilet with people from the garden traipsing in and out.

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.
