Myself and colleagues had a wonderful lunch. A great experience from start to finish. The food and service was exceptional, the wines were good too! Though expensive, we got what we paid for. I look forward to my next visit.

Afternoon tea is served in many grand hotels in London. But for me nothing beats Dorchester. It is just one of those must-visit-destinations. Add some sparkle to your afternoon tea ;)

High Tea at the Dorchester is a must do for visitors to London. Nothing can compare to it. It's just some scones, finger sandwiches, and tea, but the setting is lovely. I loved the bellmen in the tophats!

Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed
thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of
London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is
haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is
vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic
streets will reveal that Michelin stars and
chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even
