“The best lunch experience ever!”
Reviewed 8 September 2012

We ate in the Ritz Restaurant and had the Du Jour Lunch as part of a package with a visit to the State Rooms at Buckingham Palace.
What an experience! Great service, lovely food, wonderful surroundings and very good value. Need I say any more?

Treated my daughter for her 40th birthday to the hotels" Putting on the Ritz " deal.What a wonderful experience.
It was expensive,but worth it for the memory alone.I cannot fault anything.The staff were very friendly and helpful and our room just beautiful.
Even though we had to check out at noon and our train in the evening was not till 8pm,there was no problem in them hanging on to our luggage,shopping etc.
AFTERNOON TEA WOW.

Whisked off for a surprise 40th birthday treat. Superb service, fabulous suite overlooking the beautiful Green Park. This is what staying in a hotel is all about. Didn't want to leave, and will be returning. Many thanks

This has been our first time at this world famous hotel, as we usually stay in much smaller (and more modest) hotels while in London. It was an outstanding experience. Everything about the hotel is plush and the attention to detail and level of service is quite unique. The rooms are trully "grand" in every way. The only thing that could be improved is the gim - too small and not enough variety of equipment. You can't beat the location. If you want to splurge - this is the place.

Lovely feedback, thank you very much. I totally take onboard your impression of the gym, which is one of the areas of the Hotel which is under review. When there is more definitive information on this, you will be sent an update via our Newsletter. In any event, I hope you will return to visit The Ritz, even as a non-resident. SB

Was fortunate enough to enjoy tea at The Ritz with my wife and why oh why have I waited so long (I am now 61) to enjoy this pleasure? It was superb from start to finish. The decor, ambiance, quality of service, quality (and quantity) of the food down to little touches like a request card for the resident pianist. We were blown away with it all. We had tea and a glass of champagne for £54 each and it was worth every penny. You may not do this too often but don't wait as long as I did to enjoy such a pleasurable experience. Definitely one for list of "do it now!!!"

Room Tip: The quantity of food is very large, we booked for 11:30 to make a lunch which is not a bad idea.

The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, with a Dinner Dance on Friday and Saturdays.
