My friends and I had afternoon tea which was lovely. (Possibly less cakes and a couple more sandwiches would have been our preference) Then we used spa facilities and had a treatment. Staff were great and exceptionally helpful and friendly. Will be back again soon.

Our first visit and very impressed. Couldn’t fault anything and the lovely surprise of a plate with cakes and Happy Birthday in chocolate for my husband was a lovely gesture and very much appreciated. Thank you

Lovely meal included with the DBB deal, friendly staff who were very helpful. Would definitely recommend the Bowfield for a getaway as a family retreat or a couples retreat.

Service was very slow. No one asked if we needed more drink and we got frustrated trying to get waiters attention.

Overall, was a lovely afternoon tea, which arrived promptly and was well presented. Good value for the price. Would have been nice to have been asked if we wanted more tea or coffee. Also, had to get up to find a member of staff at one point. But neither of these things spoiled our enjoyment.
