I was surprised that two plates were not provided, one for the sanwiches and one for the cakes. Also tweezers to load the cakes on to the plate Also why only one knife?
I booked a lunch for my friend and I as a birthday treat. Luckily her meal of stone bass was excellent I was very disappointed with my choice of Thai spiced fish cakes. They were uninteresting and had no spice in them. 3 fish cakes and a few leaves (salad) was very unbalanced and could only eat 2. Even if they were tasty 2 fish cakes and more salad would have been more enjoyable. However The service was excellent and would try again and pick another meal as everything else was of a good standard.
Food was beautiful
Lovely food, great value for money
Beautiful setting overlooking gardens, highly recommended
Enjoyed my afternoon tea.
This is a very classy establishment. The room is eloquently decorated and does have a nice romantic setting. Obviously it does depend on other patrons that are dining there. The staff are extremely polite, well turned out, attentive and helpful. They assisted me with making the afternoon tea that little bit extra special for my wife, by allowing me to have flowers delivered and waiting for us at our table when we arrived, which went down a treat. The Champgne Afternoon Tea was very nice. The cakes were amazing and they did fill us up. The savoury tray though left very little to the imagination and was simply four fingers from different sandwiches, i.e. Egg & Cress, Ham, Smoked Salmon & I believe the final one was cheese, which in all, totalled one whole sandwich per person. There was also a very tasty Coronation Chicken in a pastry base which was very nice too. The price for all this was £30, each, which I appreciate is the going rate really, but apart from the cakes, scones and tea, I didn’t find anything particularly amazing which is what I was expecting from such a prestigious venue. All in all though, it was a nice experience and a lovely venue and staff.
The only thing that I didn’t enjoy was the chorizo burger as it was too thick. Everything else was delicious and the service was fantastic.
Had wonderful afternoon tea for my mums 80th birthday..every thing was petfect.thank you to all the pleasant staff.
The staff that were serving tables were outstanding. They were polite, discreet and extremely efficient.
As a returning customer I knew what to expect at Orsett Hall. Lovely setting, beautiful surroundings, relaxing and good value for money. I did have to request fresh plates and cutlery and I had to ask for the bill twice but apart from that, it was a great afternoon.
We had a lovely afternoon, celebrating our Nans 89th birthday. The service was great and more importantly our Nan really enjoyed it.
The atmosphere is lovely, the tea and the desserts as well. However the sandwiches were not the best ones. Overall a nice experience. Thank you.
Feel like the cakes on the afternoon tea could have been better.
Had a great afternoon, nice atmosphere and food
Everything went smoothly from the booking right up to the event which was my daughters baby shower . Thank you Orsett Hall Hotel
Lovely afternoon, staff were friendly and attentive!
Lovely venue tasty food
We had a lovely afternoon in a wonderful setting. Thank you
Not happy at all with the service!!!
Recently had an afternoon tea for a double birthday and they catered for myself &12 guests..we didn't have any problems and all the staff were very friendly & helpful..Orsett also catered for a vegetarian and a vegan..would highly recommend and the 2hr slot was more than enough, wasn't rushed at all 😊
Had a really lovely afternoon tea. Very friendly staff and good food. Would definitely recommend Orsett Hall - the best afternoon tea I have had. Look forward to the next one!
Lovely tea, excellent service and thoroughly enjoyable afternoon. My only suggestion would be that you have smaller cake stands when serving an individual. We had two cake stands on the table because my sister is gluten free. This made the table very cramped and the food looked lost on the cake stand. Having said that the food, including the gluten free, was excellent. Will definitely visit again.
It’s was pleasure to go to Praett Hall as we always wanted to go there for some time, but as I was running late I called reception to pass the message on but when I got there - no message was passed on and was told we had so much time before we return the table and we weren’t even seated yet, called the same morning as 2 separate booking were done and was advised this would be changed and sorted by the time we arrive but when I mention this she had no idea what I was talking about and said would check with reception, I asked if she did check but she said no, I had to request that it’s someone bday even though I was told over the phone this would be sorted but never was.. I felt abit uncomfortable as I kept looking at the time so I know when we need to leave, the food and tea we’re lovely. I would return but please be mindful what you’re customer is requesting as I did mention no pork and I needed to explain again when we got there so it wasn’t nice to know that the restaurant weren’t prepared of our booking or the request, plus don’t make your customer feel they have to rush out the door soon as they arrive.
