I've been here on several occasions to escape Heathrow (and in particular Terminal 5). The cafe is situated in the Sofitel hotel which adjoins T5 and you won't find a better place to escape and relax. It literally is a few minutes walk from the...More

If you like to pay £4.50 for a black coffee and £13 for a plate of lettuce, a drizzle of dressing, 4anchovies and a little Parmesan, this is the place. Rates massive or just milking you as you are captive? Basic room £180.

Tea 5 offers a pleasant relaxed atmosphere with a variety of coffee tables and low seating or higher tables and chairs which we prefer if eating. The menu was good, ranging from light bites to salads, soups, more substantial sandwiches and cakes. The smoked salmon,...More

We had time to waste before our flight and decided to pop in here. The afternoon tea is excellent and well priced (compared to the ultra posh places in London). Fantastic sandwiches and cake with a great selection of teas. The only thing I would...More

Great place for an informal meeting. Modern, spacious, good food and wide variety of drinks. Waiter Rocky very good, some others less attentive. Discount provided on parking if you purchase from Tea 5. Recommended

Whether you're here for its dynamic street life, world
class galleries or famed curry houses, you're bound to
be wowed by the uniquely cosmopolitan flavor of
Whitechapel. Long gone are the days when Jack the
Ripper stalked its streets. And despite his mysterious
legacy bringing throngs of curiosity driven tour
groups to its back alleys and otherwise serene garden
squares, these days you're more likely to catch a
