About Fawsley Hall - Tudor Lounge

With its rich heritage as a Royal Manor which has hosted many eminent guests including Queen Elizabeth I, Fawsley Hall offers a fascinating and unique setting for special occasions and dining.
Guests can enjoy a mixture of the traditional and contemporary, with classic afternoon tea in the Tudor Great Hall or modern British food in the award-winning Cedar Restaurant. Located on the ground floor of the South Wing, this space was built in the early 16th century and displays many hallmarks of the Tudor era, with a beamed ceiling, exposed brickwork and stone fireplace.
Our private dining rooms are perfect for intimate occasions, or the Tudor Bar offers a cosy retreat within which to eat a light lunch or indulge in a pre-dinner cocktail.

Had Champagne afternoon tea, Sandwiches were very cold we did make the waiter aware. Towards the end of our tea it was difficult to find a member of staff to get the bill.

Service was ok however the staff seemed slightly overwhelmed with the amount of guests, we tried numerous times to get the waiters attention so in the end we had to walk up to the counter to pay for our afternoon tea. No replenishments or refills on drinks were offered which was disappointing especially considering they seemed under staffed.

Our host “Mo” was very polite, friendly and professional. My sister had gluten free afternoon tea and he asked for feedback and she gave some very honest and valuable feedback for the gluten free afternoon tea. He was a delight to be served by.

Staff were excellent and very attentive, particularly with regard to a food allergy. The afternoon tea was delicious and the atmosphere very relaxed. Would definitely recommend.

Hi we were amazed that only 4 finger sandwiches were included. The festive tea was not very festive. The jam was not great. Should also include 2 scones each. But Hall is stunning and very helpful staff.

Unfortunately the afternoon tea was a bit of a let down. For the price there are far better afternoon teas available in Northamptonshire. The scones with jam were a highlight but the rest did not live up to expectations. We won't hurry back. Beautiful venue however and good experience. Staff friendly.

We did feel that we were just in a walk way as we’re seated in the grand hall which lead to the restaurant, and were a little disappointed with the food as it was nothing special or exceptional. The tea was very weak and the conserve watery. The service however was very good.

The food was very poor. The scones where the only items of the afternoon tea that where of a reasonable standard.

The room was stunning but lacked the Festive feel. Not many decorations and no music playing so room felt very flat and not Christmassy. Some soft background music would have made all the difference. Had the festive afternoon tea, morn expensive than the standard but only difference appeared to be be a different flavour profiterole, no decoration on the plates (would have been a nice touch). Service was excellent, very friendly, attentive staff.

Excellent venue and service. So beautiful to be in the main hall. Lovely table and chinaware. Service was excellent. Very cheerful. Nothing too much trouble. I would say I’ve had better cakes but it’s marginal. The scones and sandwiches were great. There’s also much more choice than your average one size fits all tea which is excellent. Had a lovely time.

Gorgeous place to have afternoon tea. Beautiful at any time of year, but for Christmas it was perfect. The food was good, though clearly the sandwiches had come out of a fridge. The scones were fresh & fluffy and the jam seemed homemade. The cakes were dainty and balanced the meal well. Service was slow / intermittent, but the staff all really positive and helpful. I will definitely return
