A lovely relaxing atmosphere set in a beautiful traditional English location. It's everything you'd expect from a Country Hotel and more. The staff are first class. The grounds are beautiful and it's a delight to walk through the park and see the ducks by the lake. It's our favourite place to dine.
Beautiful afternoon tea in gorgeous settings. Staff very helpful. Lovely relaxing experience.
We had a lovely afternoon tea, the service was exceptional and the food delicious!
We were so well looked after by your fantastic host (think she was called Jane). She went above and beyond to give us a lovely afternoon- thank you!
Friendly staff . Delicious food but had to wait 30 minutes for afternoon tea to arrive. Staff helpful but had to ask for butter , milk and sugar. More savoury options would have been perfect
Came to Hardwick Hall for afternoon tea to celebrate my Mother’s 88th birthday,with my wife and two daughters.We had a wonderful time,everything from booking to spending a few hours there was really enjoyable.The staff were lovely,comfortable place to sit and more than anything the food was delicious.My Mum had recently been to the famous Betty’s Tea Room in Harrogate and she said this was much better.Would we come again,definitely.Would recommend to anybody.
Excellent choice, great quality, good size portions, great service. Will be back.
Called previously to confirm 1 vegan in the party, only options were vegetarian and was macoroni cheese past, this was seved in a lump, so ibviously not fresh, the other 3 in the party ordered steaks- 2 fillets both of them were so “well done” they were like over cooked burgers. I booked this and persuaded the other couple to come with us, we had been previously and had a bad experience, i promised that if it was bad this time i would pay for their meal, guess what? I ended up paying for their meal. For me to recomend or visit again i would need reassurance from the hotel management that the food would be as described on the menu, we would be served fresh food, and if it wasnt to our expectations it would be discounted.
Beautiful setting, gorgeous well presented food and friendly efficient staff
We had a lovely experience whilst enjoying afternoon tea, staff were friendly and polite and the food was delicious, we’ll be doing it again for certain
Our server, Harry, was amazing. Really polite and chatty he was a credit to you.
The only bad comment was that i had asked for a window seat if possible but although the table was set up ready it was not near a window. This was possibly due to the fact that it was after a major event (Hardwick live) and there were a lot of people roaming about. Still lovely surroundings and will definatly be back.
Such a relaxing, luxurious experience. Fantastic opportunity to spoil myself and my best friend. I will definately go again with other family and friends.
Had a great stay for our 39th wedding anniversary, we were made to feel very welcome by all the staff, The food was excellent, the hotel is set in a fantastic location, we will certainly be visiting again. Thanks again to all the staff who made our weekend special.
We had an excellent time at hardwick hall, I booked a few tables for a baby shower I had originally booked for 25 but then downsized to 16 which I had confirmed ,on the day only 12 turned up which the staff were lovely about, didn't make any fuss about it. The table we had was in the Boyce room which we had all to ourselves which was a lovely surprise as I hadn't asked for a separate room as I thought it would be more expensive, the staff were lovely and catered our every need, always coming in to check we were ok and topping our drinks up! Afternoon tea was excellent with a lovely selection of sandwiches, cakes an biscuits overall a lovely experience and would definitely recommend here for any occasion! X
The Rib Room & Grill at Hardwick Hall is our new go to restaurant when I’m home on leave, the quality of food, selection of drinks and service was superb + all the staff made us feel welcome with personal touches to ensure an unforgettable anniversary dinner...five stars all round, can’t fault this special place and would highly recommend!
A very enjoyable afternoon. Food was good with a nice range of sandwiches and cakes which all appear to be homemade, have has afternoon tea in other hotels in the group and this one was far better. Service was excellent without being intrusive. We had expected to be in the restaurant as advertised on the website but in fact the bar/lounge area was more personal.
We had a wonderful afternoon, the food was lovely and so were the staff. I can’t fault anything at all.
Took my sister-in-law for afternoon tea for her 85th birthday and she really enjoyed it. We arrived early but that wasn’t a problem. Service was really good with friendly helpful staff. Tea was very good too
Lovely afternoon tea. The staff were very attentive and friendly. Beautiful room looking out over the lake. Excellent- thanks very much Hardwick Hall
Really great service from the whole team!
Despite there being two weddings on and the staff being pushed to the limit as wedding guests arrived they were attentive and friendly. The afternoon tea was delicious and plentiful and we will most certainly be back
Fantastic afternoon tea in beautiful surroundings. Very friendly staff.
The meals were all nice and the wine was a good taste. We were really impressed with the waitress serving us who overheard it was the birthday of my girlfriend and later brought out a nice little cake with a candle and happy birthday on the plate. It surprised us and was very thoughtful. We came on a bit of a quiet day but I recommend you and would definitely come again.
