Not what I expected
28 October 2019
This was a viewing of sketches ( not paintings) rather than looking at the palace. It was not made clear you had to book the afternoon tea separately and take two vouchers as the experience was sold as a package. We therefore arrived after our allotted palace time to have tea and were told we didn’t have a booking. The staff were super and squeezed us in and the setting and tea itself was wonderful.

Art lovers paradise

Lovely way to learn about Leonardo da Vinci - Royal Family fans may wish to visit the state rooms instead but this was very interesting and informative for art lovers

A superb experience

Everything about afternoon tea at Ruben's was excellent. We received a warm welcome and chose from a wide range of teas. The sandwiches were delicious as were the scones and stunning cake selection. We had a wonderful time that we will remember for some time.

Not what we expected
25 August 2019
As this is called the queens gallery, we expected to be seeing royal paintings. We felt like we could have been in a gallery anywhere not necessarily at Buckingham Palace. Great for those who are interested in art, we are more interested in the royals and didn’t get that from our visit!

Mother & Son treat day
27 July 2019
Part of the Buckingham Palace state rooms package, but did it the day after. Very glad we did as we were able to enjoy it more relaxed nog having to worry about rushing off for the tour. We had excellent service & staff fabulous. The waiter knew his teas & able to advise on taste & flavour. The pastries were amazing & beautifully decorated. The scones were light, fluffy & delicious
