How very apt that this venue is a converted toilet as they still enjoying taking the p*ss! I'd hardly call it high tea as you get one soggy sandwich, one cupcake and one cup of tea. No coffee or other hot drinks available. You might as well stand as the table is just big enough to park that one solitary cup of tea. The seat is really a very small stall with no back support. You may well be sharing your table with the speaker system too. This is a cocktail bar and has almost nothing to do with cake or tea. At £10 a drink, you are also charged a service charge for bringing it to your seat not more than one stride away and yet charged an extra 85p. The entertainment is funny but the whole experience is not worth £40 quid a ticket. My advice is to spend your money at the Savoy. A much nicer experience with lots of fresh cream cakes and as much tea as you can drink for half the price. Believe me, the strip show is not worth your money. You will regret spending money on this experience. DO NOT BOOK Visited Cellar Door on 2017-03-01

Fantastic afternoon! I went, as an early birthday celebration for myself, with a group of friends and it was brilliant. The show was hilarious; we didn't stop laughing, the high tea was delicious, (especially the cakes), and the burlesque was beautiful! The setting and atmosphere is perfect for cabaret and the staff were friendly and welcoming. We also tried a few of the cocktails and they were amazing! I will definitely be going back again. It was the best way to spend a Saturday afternoon! Visited Cellar Door on 2017-01-02

Such wonderful entertainment and fabulous service. From the busy West End streets, you are whisked into the underground and smoky world of cabaret. The tea was a bit lacking in the quantity, but the cocktails were suburb. Try the 'Norma Jean', wickedly spicy! Visited Cellar Door on 1970-01-01
