Can highly recommend the High Tea in the Tiffin Room. The tea was Devine while listening to the beautiful Harp being played. The three tiered stand of sandwiches and cakes lovely. Was not overly impressed with the scones, though the hot pastries were fabulous. Retired after the relaxing High Tea to the Long bar to enjoy the infamous Singapore Sling.... More

You must visit Raffles and have afternoon tea. Also visit the Long Bar and drink a Singapore Sling. Don't forget to trow you peanut shells on the floor, its tradition.

Any trip to Singapore would not be complete without a visit to the Raffles - we like the peanut bar where you shell peanuts and drop the shells all over the floor while sipping an overpriced Singapore sling. ( just one- for fun)

High Tea at Raffles Hotel was a wonderful experience, its pricy but this could be a once in a lifetime experience for most people, so worth a ' big spender' moment. I couldn't fault this experience. 3 of our guests had specific dietary requirements, gluten allergy, vegan and vegetarian, all had a great experience too, we were lucky enough to... More

What visit to Singapore would be complete without a photo at the front of Raffles - steeped in history and frequented by literary giants from the past. Built by the Saki Brothers after the success of their E&O in Penanang. I remember it fondly prior to its glamorous renovations and even stayed their on occaisions as airline crew many years... More

High Tea at Raffles was on my Bucket List and with great excitement we went there as the finale to a wonderful trip to India and Singapore. Raffles was all I had imagined and then some - such a pleasure to be there, and particularly as it was close to Xmas and the decorations gave added colour and beauty to... More

Almost a rite of path when in Singapore. Yes, it's full of tourists, yes it's really really expensive, but it was fun. Prices are ++ ( plus tax and service) on what is advertised, so in total it was almost equivalent of 20 GBP for one cocktail. You do get a bag of money nuts and it is encouraged to... More
