On 1 March 2012, with enormous joy and excitement, the refurbished St James’s restaurant was opened by HM the Queen accompanied by Their Royal Highnesses the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duchess of Cambridge, and renamed The Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon The tradition of taking tea and that little bit of something between lunch and dinner had long been a feature of smart households, and in the Roaring Twenties at Fortnum’s it was defined by a menu featuring our finest teas, delicate sandwiches and exquisite cakes. We are delighted to announce that The Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon has been voted one of the Top 100 Restaurants in the UK in 2013 by OpenTable , the leading consumer site for restaurant bookings in the UK. The votes are cast by customers, so it is especially exciting that visitors to our Tea Salon have enjoyed their experience so much that they felt inspired to vote for us amidst some very stiff competition.

We went on a Monday afternoon, and although I'd made a reservation, there...more
I had heard so much about Fortnum and Mason's afternoon high tea, so when i went with my family over the summer, it exceeded my expectations. Honestly, it was like a dream being able to have a high tea in London - we felt like royalty. Don't come with a full belly, because you will certainly leave with one! One of my family members is gluten free, and we were thrilled when making a...more
This afternoon tea concept is a new one to me, so when I was planning out food options for a trip to London, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to have an authentic experience. If it's good enough for the Queen, then it's certainly good enough for me!
Be sure to make a reservation. I saw a few people get denied at the door because they were fully booked on a Sunday afternoon. You'll also...more
My coworker used to live in London, so I asked her to recommend a spot for high tea, and Fortnum and Mason was on the list. I made the reservation the day before I was about to fly out, so I wasn't able to research it much. I've had high tea in San Francisco before, but it was nothing compared to the elegance of Fortnum and Mason. As I walked in, I could definitely tell this was a go to...more
