For us, great food is not just about accolades, it is about consistently producing fabulous food from the best ingredients.
The sandwiches were all delicious, however the scones were dry. The staff were overstretched possibly due to the first week of opening. The metal chairs could do with padding or blankets as it did get cold.
thank you for your feedback, i am surprised that you felt our scones were dry as they are baked daily, if on your next visit you feel our standards are not up to our normal high expectations please inform a team member who will assist you. we have been very busy and ofcourse at 1pm it is always busy and we try our best to accomodate all especially after such a long lockdown. due to covid restrictions the seat pads can not be sanitized to a covid standard as they are foam covered material. we look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
Lovely day at the Grimsdyke hotel in old redding, good food and lovely service.
thank you for your feedback, we are so pleased you enjoyed your visit and look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
A joyful re-opening after lockdown with an outdoor lunch (actually a cream tea!) treat for my mother's 92md birthday!
thank you for your feedback. we are so happy that you all enjoyed your afternoon with us. we look forward to welcoming you back soon.
Enjoyed an excellent Sunday lunch for my birthday, Oh how the nicely decorated room would have benefited from a roaring log fire! Mix of accent and face mask meant we could understand little that was said to us, but the food made amends even if the absence of a Yorkshire pudding with my roast beef was a bit of a let-down.
Found the staff very helpful and efficient. The food was of a good standard. The premises are unique and interesting.
Lovely and festive and delicious tea. A real treat!
The place is dated, the staff was nice but slow. We had to go and get the waiters for service. once attending they were helpful. I think they are short on stuff. Food was average. Teas were nice
Service was excellent, made to feel really welcome! The afternoon tea was delicious and even took the trouble to make a birthday plate for my friend ! I would highly recommend! The gardens are beautiful!
thank you for your feedback. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your experience. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Grimsdyke post lockdown. Stay safe.
The lack of atmosphere was simply having to be outside, the staff were amazing and very attentive and helpful. We missed your beatiful panelled rooms but can't be helped. Well worth going we enjoyed ourselves and the staff observed COVID rules tothe letter. Thank you.
Thank you for your feedback, we do take the COVID guidance extremely seriously the welfare of our guests and team are of the upmost importance. We look forward to welcoming you back post lockdown.
We had a fantastic Sunday Lunch. The quality of the food was first class. The roast lamb with all the trimmings was delicious, served hot , freshly cooked and generous. The service was excellent. We will return,
Thank you so much for your lovely review, We are so pleased that you all enjoyed your Sunday Lunch, your kind words will be forward to the team and we look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.
Had the royal cream tea in beautiful surroundings and great service.
thank you for your review, we as a team are so pleased that you enjoyed your time with us and look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
When I called up . I told them it was my friend birthday. I was told bring a plate out Happy Birthday Written on it . It didnt happen disappointed Service was slow. Lady that served us was very good
thank you for submitting your review, I am disappointed that we failed to provide a birthday plate on this occasion and have passed your review on to the team. we hope you will return in the future.
Great service but it was quite cold in there so might be best to turn the heating on a bit next time
thank you for your feedback, i have passed your comments on in regards to the heating. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
Sadly, lockdown has taken away any ambience which should be at such a lovely hotel. I was meeting friends for afternoon tea. This had to be held in the dining room, there being a wake in the other rooms. It was like a desolate school dining room, empty tables and only one other table laid up. The food was lovely, the service was fine, but it really was like sitting in desolation row.
thank you for your feedback, I am disappointed that your time with us was marred by the lack of ambience you experienced, in these uncertain times we have to follow the strict guidance from the government - this includes clear tables until reserved/required. We thank you for supporting us in these troubled times and hope you will indeed visit us again in the future.
I went for a birthday treat with friends, Royal Afternoon Tea...we had a wonderful time. We had a private dinning room which looked out on the lovely gardens.We especially enjoyed the smoked salmon sandwiches and the fresh scones The service was excellent. I would like to thank all the staff who looked after us amazingly.... I shall be visiting again. X
thank you for your kind words, I will pass them on to the team. We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future.
Very efficient bearing in mind the Covid situation, all good, marked low on atmosphere as we were the only people there at the time. Tea/food good.
Thank you for your feedback, we are so pleased that you enjoyed your time with us. we are all adapting to new guidance as it is updated. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
Food was lovely, staff were friendly however the Best Western signage outside put me off hosting a family event there as they are all a little posh..
Thank you for your feedback, your comments will be passed on to our team. The hotel is privately owned Best Western is the platform we use for the rooms. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
Excellent afternoon tea and very nice staff. Atmosphere was rather dull, I understand things are different at the moment but some soft background music would have helped and possibly some fresh flowers. I still would come again and recommend the fresh food.
Thank you for your feedback. We are so pleased you enjoyed your afternoon cream tea. During these difficult times tables do have to stay clear of flowers etc but there should of been background music so apologies. we look forward to seeing you again soon.
A very relaxed and enjoyable afternoon and the Afternoon Tea was enjoyed by all. Both the waitress and waiter were very friendly and pleasant. The Birthday Cake was a lovely surprise. Thank you for making my Mum's birthday special.
Afternoon tea was wonderful but we were disappointed with the scones as they tasteless and dry. Otherwise fabulous food. Service was great, very attentive & friendly. Sadly the dining room was dark and really lacked any atmosphere.
Thank you for your review, I am sorry that you did not enjoy the scones, I also wished that you had to told us at the time of the Cream Tea so we could of tried to put things right. All the items on the Tea are home made in house by our pastry chef fresh daily. We hope you will visit us again in the near future.
Afternoon tea was absolutely lovely and the grounds are beautiful. We will be coming again!
