Upon arrival, the hostess was very nervous that we had Celiac. She explained that while they take precautions, there is “flour everywhere.” (Her words). We went ahead anyway based on reviews here. Not understanding how English teas work, we completely over-ordered. My daughters and I could have easily split an order - it’s so much food! It is also extraordinarily expensive. But it really was beautiful. The sandwiches and scones were okay - tea was delicious - and cake at the end was the best tasting part. We did not have any ill effects, so I would say it’s safe.
The afternoon tea at the Diamond Jubilee Tea Room is to die for! Best gluten free scones I’ve ever had, and the sandwiches did NOT taste gluten free. (Sort of scary, tbh.) I didn't eat the cake at the end, so our charming waiter boxed it for me to take home. Expensive, but worth every penny.
Not sure why this is listed as one £ sign. Its gorgeous, and quite pricey. I believe afternoon tea service is around £60 per person.
Fabulous high tea. They have a full GF tea menu (finger sandwiches, scones!, cakes). It is a complete experience. They keep bringing food until you burst. Highly recommended.(I am celiac, but not very sensitive so cannot guarantee that they had strong cross-contamination protocols in place.)
