Quintessentially English restaurant worth visiting in the afternoon for high tea with cakes, sandwiches and excellent ice cream sundaes. Perfect for impressing anybody taken the "quaintness" of some of our traditions.
The Fountain Tea Room reviews
I agree with a previous reviewer - while the food was very nice, the service left something to be desired.

My scones were perfect and warm, and the tea was brilliant. The waiters aren't perfect, but the service is reasonable.
One has to remember that this is a department store and, in my opinion, Fortnum and Mason
are making a better job of it than other stores in London such as Selfridges
. If you're in F& M, don't disregard the Fountain Tea
Room - it makes a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of the food halls

Being, quintessentially English, I disagree. The Fountain was wildly overpriced; the service was provided by surly, sloppy teenagers and the quality of the food was mediocre (bordering on being sent back). Definitely wander down to Rowleys instead!

Have we missed a great cafe in London?
Let us know.
