First time here having afternoon tea, everything was delicious! The service was excellent and the view of the lake from our table was stunning. All in all we have no complaints, my mam and I enjoyed every minute of our afternoon tea experience
Enjoyed coffee followed by butternut soup and pot of tea.
Afternoon tea was lovely, took notice of our dietary requirements
Lovely food, lovely staff, had to cancel my desert as was too full but starter and main were delicious.
The hotel itself is looking very tired and needs a lot of work doing to bring it up to where it should be. The food is mediocre at best. The room we stayed in was noisy and the shower tray was full of mould. For the name this establishment carries it’s very poor and I would not stay or recommend anyone to stay in the future until it’s brought up to standard.
Excellent afternoon tea really good value and excellent service . Will definitely recommend to family and friends . Thank you for a lovely afternoon .
Lovely good quality food. Very attentive staff member at the bar, continually check everything was ok and providing lots of lovely tea. Would definitely go back.
Good service and relaxed ambiance
We had a lovely afternoon , afternoon tea was lovely , nice atmosphere,staff were great , scenery and location fab,
Came for afternoon tea with my mum. We ordered a full afternoon tea and a cream tea to share. Cream tea is great value for money- couldn't believe how much came with it! Nothing elaborate, but nicely made and presented. My mum loves it here so will definitely bring her back.
When we arrived, despite making a reservation, we were not on the list and the staff behind the bar made a right scene of how there were no tables free whilst we stood confused. When we were taken through, there were at least a dozen free tables but the other guests were finishing their lunches and onto coffees at this point. We felt so rushed eating, that despite the food being amazing, I just didn’t enjoy the meal at all, rushed through it and felt like I couldn’t get dessert because the staff were trying to tidy up. Just a horrible experience. Not to mention that there was also a wedding and our dining table was in between the wedding function room and the bar that the guests were using (including the bride!!!) so I felt so in the way and embarrassed for the bride having guests eating in the middle of her wedding day.
It was absolutely beautiful food
Brilliant stay but drinks too expensive
We always go to the Hardwick hotel for our afternoon tea. It is great value for money. The staff are all very friendly and helpful
We had afternoon it was ok, however the scones weren't served warm which let them down. I had asked for plain sandwiches as I'm fussy but this wasn't given. What I did eat was nice however wouldn't rush back.
What a lovely experience staff so friendly and most of all food was really nice. I would total recommend ti my family and friends
Had a wonderful afternoon with excellent, attentive service and great food.
Excellent service and food
Staff went over and beyond
Quiet Monday night. Service good but a little slow. Food superb, meat and vegetables and sauces great but fat chips need crisping up! Beer choices a bit limited
Given the incident that I understand you had I wish not to make a formal starred feedback at this time other than to say when I turned up on Sunday 19th for a birthday lunch celebration for my daughter I was very disappointed to discover that you had not made use of the automated reservation sytem, which you were eager to use prior to and since my booking, to alert us of the cancellation of that days service.
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.
