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.

I highly recommend reservation in advance. We made an online reservation and still had to wait a bit, and while waiting saw several parties being turned away because there simply was no slot available. Everything was delicious and generous in portions. They keep asking if you want more, and I wish I had the room in my stomach to eat all the food that was available. The sandwiches were a...more

I am ashamed I didn't review this sooner.

Fortnum and Mason is amazing. The store is amazing. I enjoyed our booking for tea right as the store opened so I had time to be the first person in there walking around without crowds.

The 1st floor is the store where they sell teas,jams,sweets, etc. The 2nd floor is the restaurant. The 3rd floor is the tea salon, which was adorned with Tiffany colored drapes, table mats, even the servers' shirts! Although we've experienced tea rooms in LA, we had to try tea in London!!...more

My friend and I ended up staying here for five hours. Expensive but...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
