Afternoon tea for my Grandmas 80th Birthday was lovely. So much choice and all very fresh. Jane was very helpful she even provided us with an extra table for us to put the birthday cake and gifts on. She worked extremely hard and always had a smile on her face. We had left over cakes and she provided us with little boxes so that we could take them home. We all thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon and would definitely return and reccomend it. Thank you again
Food was amazing! Sausage rolls were so tasty.
Table just off bar - not much ambience for what was a delicious afternoon tea - would have been better in Restaurant / Dining Room.
One member of staff served us and all the other customers in the bar it was really busy and at points she forgot about us as she was that busy she forgot about the sugar and butter for the afternoon tea. We ran out of tea where I had to ask for more tea and she forgot about us for ages. I think she had a great personality I just think you should have more staff !
Hello, I want to start by thanking your staff for welcoming us, we’ve never been to Hardwick Hall (but we pass it nearly everyday) before and I can honestly say we will be back. We where seated really quickly and our orders where taken in a timely fashion, the food was lovely we both really enjoyed our starters and mains and even tho we did have any pudding I did try to order a creame brûlée but they had been very popular and had sold out, we still left feeling satisfied your staff are wonderful even at paying the bill there was two very friendly girls at the bar and they where lovely
Very friendly service and great food.
Staff where extremely accommodating and provided a great service. We really enjoyed it, thank you.
Perfect setting for a special occasion as it was my parents ruby anniversary. The food was lovely and the service was impeccable
Great afternoon tea loads of choice
A beautiful venue, decor was lovely. Afternoon tea was expensive for what you receive and drinks were very pricey at almost £7 each for a gin and wine. Service was good however staff would benefit from being more personable, no conversation was had at all other than do you want tea. This is not a complaint, far from it just observations and feedback.
Had afternoon tea which was excellent however would suggest the the actual pot of tea be served when the food arrives, rather than before, as there can be a delay.
Had a lovely stay for our anniversary. Room spacious and comfortable. Food in restaurant was delicious. Would definatly stay again.
Staff extremely friendly and happy to help. Rooms are beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Food is excellent cannot fault the full English breakfast.
Everything about the afternoon tea was lovely. The staff couldn't of been more helpful.
This is the second time I’ve been for afternoon tea this summer. Once with colleagues and once with family. I would highly recommend Hardwick Hall.
Delicious Afternoon Tea in pleasant surroundings and very friendly & helpful staff.
The service on our private dining experience was exceptional.The food was great, and the staff could not have been more helpful. I would highly recommend.
Lovely afternoon spent in a very good environment. Afternoon tea was very good with a good constant supply of tea and coffee and a range of savoury and sweet options. Even a box was supplied as a take home bag. Brilliant. Thank you.
We had Afternoon Tea and it was beautiful. Service was excellent. We will definitely be returning.
I have been several times to the rib room and always enjoyed it. However my last visit on friday evening left a sour taste. There were only 2 of us and we didnt order anu starters. We just went straight for the tomahawk steak. It took over 1 hour to arrive and when it finally did it was not medium as requested. There was no red throughout the steak. However i didnt want to send it back as we had waited so long. When spending over 80 pounds on food i would hope for a lot better quality. The staff in the restaurant were great though. Really friendly and welcoming.
Excellent afternoon tea in lovely surroundings. Attentive service. Ambiance a little lacking.
Booked for fathers day. Told there was no room in the room where you have afternoon tea so we were told we had a table within the bar area. Not really appropiate when you have numerous people walking in and out as there were two wedding functions on and a lot of people filtered into the bar area. I could of just booked a bar meal really. I was told we could go in the room where u have afternoon tea but we would have to be out of the room at 5.30 ( we booked for 4.15 ) as there was a function on. That would of felt quite rushed and the money you are paying its not really acceptable. Just feel really dissapointed as it was neant to be a nice experience for my dad. I did speak to a supervisor who did apologise but that was about it. Just very dissapointed.
Wine over priced as is all drinks - but you have a captive audience so you have to pay it
Although family celebration went to plan and we had a lovely table and a private room, but the room it’s self had not been cleaned (maybe from the night before)and other tables had dirty table clothes on them, this made the appearance of the area grubby. Could not fault the service of the staff and their helpfulness. A lovely acknowledgement was made by staff for our celebration.
Had a lovely afternoon tea. It was for a 16th birthday and they brought out a plate with some icing on saying 16th birthday and some macaroons which was really nice.
