    The views are amazing, the food was fantastic and the service was great. It’s a bit on the pricey side but you kinda expect that when you go to the gherkin. Unfortunately we didn’t get a window seat but the views were still great

    We enjoyed the afternoon tea for my birthday and it was lovely. The staff were so polite and kept our teas topped up. The pink skies at sunset were a beautiful backdrop to an unforgettable day!

    What a great place to enjoy Afternoon tea. Highly recommend. Incredible views, delicious food and brilliant service. Worth noting - to get a window seat you need to get their first sittings. Sadly and surprisingly they don’t offer decaf breakfast tea, only decaf coffee. If you are there at the last sitting it’s worth hanging around and going upstairs to the 40th floor to the bar which opens at 5pm. The views get even better. This restaurant beats a lot of the 5 star London hotels we’ve been to for afternoon tea- better service and it’s also more reasonably priced too.

    Limitless Sparkling Afternoon Tea for 90min. We enjoyed a sparkling afternoon tea watching a beautiful sunset from the Gherkin. The afternoon tea included Searcys Cuvée Brut Champagne and costed 85£ per person. A reservation is highly recommended. The staff really takes it serious with the refill so you won’t need to worry if it will be worth it or not, it simply is. The view is very special and all in all a very nice experience. The staff is very attentive and professional. The restaurant was as expected. Only bad part was, that the time passed to quickly. Good offer considering the whole package.
