I booked afternoon tea as a little treat for my very pregnant daughter and some family members. Everyone commented on how lovely everything was from the service andthe beautiful tea set. The food was beautiful and obviously home made and such a lovely choice. Everyone said they would be back. Set in such beautiful surroundings.
I came for afternoon tea with my mum to celebrate her 81st Birthday I have been to a few afternoon teas with my mum and this was by far the best for food , ambience and value for money .
Fantastic afternoon tea, everything was delicious, and it was nice to get wraps as well as sandwiches as a change. Lovely room and friendly staff who didn’t rush us out as soon as we stopped eating! It was the perfect afternoon for a catch up with friends, we will definitely be back
Birthday treat, staff even brought out 2 small cakes as an extra, this was appreciated , I would only say with us having afternoon tea we had a lot of cakes maybe a small glass of bubbly as an alternative. We had a great time and are planning our next afternoon with you again.
The afternoon tea was amazing and was a lovely treat for my mum's 70th birthday. She thoroughly enjoyed it, Thank you
Perfect service, delicious food, beautiful setting and atmosphere.. Definitely highly recommend afternoon tea..
We had afternoon tea, lots of cakes to choose from and plenty of tea and coffee
We’ve had this afternoon tea a couple of times and each times it has been a very relaxed atmosphere! Would highly recommend! Only reason I’ve put 4 star for food is that I do not have a massive sweet tooth!
Delicious Sunday lunch. Excellent service and lovely atmosphere.
We visited the Hardwick hotel for afternoon tea during our Christmas break . The staff were lovely, very friendly and very helpful. the hotel has beautiful surroundings, plenty of parking and afternoon tea was very good.
One of the best afternoon teas I have had xx
Lovely afternoon tea.
as far as we are concerned. no one can compete with your wonderful afternoon teas and excellent friendly staff.
Staff were friendly and very attentive
We arrived on time and were shown our seats. When we came to order one of the party wanted the 20oz ribeye and was told that was the only thing that was not available. We all ordered porterhouse steaks (3) and starters. We received our starters and then were told that the porterhouse steaks were not available after all as they were not up to standard ( which from what followed us questionable). We were asked to order anything else. We wanted T bone as alternative but were told that they were not available. We ended up with 2 fillets and a sirloin which were OK but the chips were burnt. We didn’t complain at the time as we were expecting a shortage of chips as well. To have one main thing missing from the menu is bad enough but 3 is not good enough for a good restaurant. To say we were disappointed is an understatement. The service was also slow which was surprising as there were only 3 tables occupied (we are still waiting for the vinegar) We waited 10 minutes at least to pay the bill and had to search for people in the end. We have been to this restaurant before and the one in your sister hotel at Ramside and always enjoyed. This experience has left us wondering whether we would come back and certainly not to Hardwick. It was a most disappointing experience. We were offered a conciliatory free round of drinks but would certainly have preferred just to pay for what we wanted and not for our 3rd/4th choice of steak.
We really enjoyed it! The service was brilliant. Thank you.
The service is as always first class. The staff are always so polite and efficient. The atmosphere is so warm and welcoming. A truly traditional Hotel set in beautiful grounds.
Booked in for 4pm and not served until 4.30 which was disappointing as I had confirmed attendance day before for 4pm however the afternoon tea was very nice with good selection of savoury and sweet items and great value for money.
I never have left a bad review and I have live and worked all over the world. On booking we advised that there was allergy sufferer on the table and this was passed the the kitchen and the staff thought if was funny and made a joke about it and asked what would happen. The kitchen did not have knowledge of the food 14 everyday allergens they were cooking and could not produce any required label ingredient list as this is law. You are lucky we are not going to make a legal complaint as we were very unwell due to soya that was not said to be in the food. And the male waiter granted at one of the female members of the party thinking it was funny and barked at her to move out of the way. To the other staff amusement. Then we waited 45 minutes for our Bill so had to pay at the Bar and was not even shown the Bill just told the price not even told goodbye as the young lad was to busy talking to his girlfriend behind the bar. Total shambles
Wonderful food and staff
My friends and I had a lovely afternoon tea at Hardwick Hall. The food was lovely. Would definitely recommend. Very reasonable priced too.
Amazing food, excellent service, my friends enjoyed their 'surprise' very much. We will certainly be back
Lovely meal with excellent service and a great atmosphere
All what we were expecting and more. Only comment I would make was to update your online site as the menus are incorrect and outdated
Excellent service !! Hope to book again soon.
