Afternoon tea very nice - waiting staff could have been more attentive. Due to low numbers the room felt empty. Really good food though

You made my Mother’s 70th birthday extra special with the lovely cream tea she had. You even brought out a decorated plate with happy 70th birthday on and a sparkler which I didn’t expect it really made her day. Thank you so much

Many many thanks for the special day xx

The atmosphere was lovely and the service was great. Most of the food was delicious but thought the cheese was a bit tired. Otherwise it was a great night

Our second visit to Barnsdale Lodge was just as enjoyable as the first. The relaxed conservatory atmosphere, friendly, attentive staff and excellent food mean we'll certainly return for more in the future. Well worth a visit, especially in winter when the log fires are glowing and there's the extra sparkle of festive cheer.

Wonderful decoration and style. Perfectly presented. Relaxing atmosphere. It would have been even better if: - we had been offered a teapot refill - we could select from different teas e.g earl grey - we had been informed of the changes to the afternoon tea menu for the cakes and mouse - we had been offered a choice of tables - there was the option to have a savoury afternoon tea e.g finger sandwiches, pork pie, sausage roll, cheese for non-sweet toothed people like us, not many places offer this currently.

Firstly it was cold. We felt that the service was not great. Not one member of staff asked if we needed anything or checked we were ok. The cakes were very dry and the sandwich fillings were very slim to the point of more butter than filling. All I all quite disappointing. We have been several times before for afternoon tea and this was not great compared to other visits

We were a party of ten,some from abroad celebrating our 30th anniversary, all were very happy with the food which was well presented. As it was very busy we were not unhappy at the length of service as it gave us time to chat. Would thoroughly recommend Barnsdale Lodge lovely atmosphere for our celebration and also got to see the bride from the wedding party too.
