Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Crazy shop but had to see it. Full of people on the Sunday we went and quite hard to navigate. We had an expensive tea and coffee at cafe on floor 3. Exchange rate is terrible for Nz dollars but it worth the experience. Lovely pastry of the day and staff were lovely and helpful

    My wife and I visit London each year for 5/6 days.One of the places we love visiting is Fortnum and Masons.It has a wonderful old Worldly atmosphere about it and we always indulge ourselves with tea and scones (English breakfast of course)before shopping in store.We usually spend a couple of hours browsing and purchasing.Then there is the sampling of different products in the food hall.This visit it was Fortnums own distilled Gin.My wife was delighted and I was pleased with my first Gin.Amazing that they distill on the 3rd floor.We have never been disappointed with any of our visits to the store and this year has been no different.Staff very professional,courteous,helpful and friendly.Well done to all staff.My wife and I look forward to our next visit.

    I love the food hall! I love the patisseries and they are always so delicious! However, I bought 5 desserts and after I got home, about 2 hours later, only 4 were in the box. Quite annoying considering they are quite expensive, despite the missing item was the cheapest. For a high end department store you expect better and it wasn't even busy. Next time I will be more attentive and check my bag before leaving but that shouldn't be my job!

    After a busy morning shopping in Knightsbridge my partner and I had refreshments in one of the bars, a glass of rioja and prosecco which was absolutely fabulous.

    Years ago the Plaza was a small shopping centre on Oxford Street and had a few stores in it but I have now discovered that it is now a giant Next store. That's not a bad thing as their clothes are pretty decent.

    The ladies clothes are on the ground floor and men's clothes are on the first floor.

    Also on the ground floor is a Gap store and on the first floor is a Costa Coffee so you can pause to refuel before continuing on your shopping expedition.

    Panic! Needed a white shirt for album launch of the Beatles Red and Blue albums at Abbey Road tomorrow night. I’m a big lad so no off the peg shop will suffice. But one call to Gold’s and they had exactly what I wanted and a black tie! Great service from Sam and Fred parking! The show will go on… 👏🏻😎

    If you have tome, this is a must. Amazing range of vintage clothing and memorabilia to suit all tastes. Staff were not pushy, just helpful, and the relaxed vibe was conducive to spending a while browsing. Will visit again next time.

    Nikee looked after me and booked me in last min, with plenty of time for me to catch my train. It's only 3 min away from King's Cross Station, very convenient and great staff, would highly recommend it. Thank you Nikee

    Uniqlo is a Japanese clothing chain. They have two stores in Oxford Street and in these stores they sell clothes for men, women and children.

    Their clothes have very bold colours and are quite eye catching however things in there are quite expensive.

    If you are a person on a limited budget you may decided to visit somewhere a little less pricey.
