This was my first stop after arriving in London, and I opted for Gail's, as I was looking for some decent scones, but didn't want to order a whole Afternoon tea. I ordered the regular scone with jam & clotted cream, as well as the...More

We went to Gail’s as a tightknit group of friends for a lazy Sunday brunch. As the only Frenchwoman of the gang I already knew that Gail’s reputation spoke for itself - they are an outstanding bakery chain in their own right and present their...More

Beautiful glass-fronted shop, lovely to sit in, with delicious food and nice coffee. Didn't get a single smile from any member of staff, no personality, rude. No atmosphere inside or out, but again nice location.

Stopped on the way out of London to grab a light breakfast. The blueberry, apricot and ginger scone was delicious. So glad it is near our hotel so we can make our way each morning!

Purchased some pastries and a speciality cold tea. Liked how the tea was an adventurous exciting flavour and the savoury pastries I had were nice - lovely crisp pastry. Reasonable prices. Staff need to perk up and smile.

We ate breakfast at this bakery three times on our visit to London and bought their recipe book. The scones and clotted cream with jam are amazing.

Visited Seymour Street Gail's yesterday and couldn't get a smile out of the waitress. When she brought coffees over, she didn't even look at us. My husband jokingly said to her 'give us a smile' and she said she was tired. Scrambled eggs took over...More
