About The Great hall and Restaurant at Ellenborough Park
Book now to enjoy Afternoon Tea in either the Great Hall or the Restaurant at Ellenborough Park
This was our second visit and sadly not nearly as enjoyable as our first was in the Summer. We did, as I had requested on line, get a wheelchair friendly spot for my disabled Mother and the staff were very friendly. Unfortunately the afternoon tea fell short of our expectations. The sugar bowl only had a few cubes of white sugar and no tongs, the tea itself was very weak, after 5 cups only one tea leaf in the strainer! Half of the sandwiches had very little filling and there was one small dish of cream and jam for four scones, not nearly sufficient. The biggest disappointment was the dessert /cakes. The battenburg was very nice but there were two vividly coloured, red and green soggy meringue creations with sugary filling that I left after one bite. Our Summer visit we enjoyed a lemon, chocolate and cheesecake creation which had elevated Ellenborough to our number one place for afternoon tea in the Cotswalds. On this particular visit when I had flown over from The States to help my Mother celebrate her 86th Birthday I found myself apologising to her for her Birthday tea falling far below our expectations and googling other options for afternoon tea in The Cotswalds.

Beautiful venue and lovely room. I ordered coffee rather than tea and expected a pot but received a cup and kept asking for another. The staff didn’t ask if we wanted top ups which was a shame. This did not affect us but we felt that it should have been explained that we can have more if we like and we should have been asked
More savoury would be better All tea set matching and not just plain white
Would have been nice to be informed that the table by fire ,which we had booked, was not available before we arrived. I had rung twice before arriving to check we could have that table aand was assured we could ,only to find they had given it to some other people when we arrived.
A beautiful afternoon tea in a wonderful setting of the great hall. Excellent choice of teas, sandwiches and scones were lovely as was the choice of sweet treats. Service was second to none. Jonathan was wonderfully attentive.
Sat by a roaring fire on a cold snowy afternoon was a treat along with great service and food. The extras of a Tupperware container to take cake home was splendid.
Beautiful setting for a special occasion. The staff were very attentive and went the extra mile.
Really lovely afternoon tea. Both staff that served us were so polite, friendly and helpful and really ensured we had a fabulous afternoon.
Excellent service and a beautiful room in which to enjoy afternoon tea.
Service was excellent. Staff were great and very attentive. I went with my friend for afternoon tea and we both enjoyed it very much. Couldn't have asked for more.
Very good service
Staff were very engaging and helpful, can’t wait to return!
Coming from South Africa currency 20 Zar to sterling made it a tad expensive However the charm and service of our waiter added value to the experience We will be back ❤️
Jonathan made us feel very welcome and was very attentive. The tea and food were delicious and plentiful! Would definitely visit again.
All staff were welcoming, professional and more than happy to help us with our requests. As a family with young children we felt very comfortable and it is definitely a family friendly hotel.
Excellent service from a lovely waitress. The Great Hall is a beautiful setting.
Great atmosphere and we didn’t feel rushed despite being last to leave. Hostess was very professional, knowledgeable and did her job well.
We had some great personnel service from our waiter I am just sorry I cannot remember his name!! But it was my daughters birthday and he really helped make the day special Thank you!!
Lovely setting and bountiful food!
Could you include cheese scones and maybe a savoury afternoon Tea?
Amazing place. Lovely afternoon tea. Staff great.
Really lovely atmosphere. Friendly service. Xmas decorations were beautiful
The waiter was excellent and truly knew the tea selection whilst being really charming and polite. We are repeat visitors at Christmas for the afternoon tea and are never disappointed!
Amazing place, great value for money and a gorgeous setting. Beautiful room, great service with a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. The only thing that could improve would be to have live music at aftenoon tea like a pianist etc.
A beautiful setting. The tree, festive candles and open fire made the whole experience relaxing. A wonderful way to start Christmas. The service was friendly and attentive and the Christmas themed petit fours were delicious. Highly recommended.
