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.
Staff were very friendly and helpful. I’m getting married here in 2020 and love coming for afternoon tea.
Not enough variety in the sandwiches and poor cakes Not worth the money
Would have been nice for you to offer a gentleman’s afternoon tea. Service a little slow at times Lovely sandwiches
Delicious food and excellent service, nothing was too much trouble.
Was our first anniversary and was lovely to share a beautiful meal together after being here at Hardwick Hall a year ago for our beautiful wedding 💒
Lovely venue and surroundings. Afternoon tea was ok but could not say it was special in any way
The grill staff are excellent, they went out of their way to provide a personal list of things to do,much appreciated, thanks
I have stayed a few times at Hardwick Hall. The setting is beautiful. However, the hotel is looking tired and in need of brightening up, maybe a repaint. Even though it was a Monday evening, there was no atmosphere in the place either...so on this occasion I was disappointed.
Good value afternoon tea in lovely surroundings
Food was absolutely beautiful. The place, the views and the standard of the afternoon tea was amazing. However felt the service from the lady serving wasn’t consistent and not very helpful at times.
Afternoon tea was fantastic plenty of choice . Would highly recommend it . Couldn’t fault the service was excellent from start to finish .
Lovely afternoon tea, only thing spoiled it was the rain, couldn't go for a walk in the grounds afterwards.
Food was lovely, but the service was really lacking with items being missed off orders, no opportunity to order further drinks and we then had to track someone down for a dessert menu after waiting nearly 30minutes. The restaurant wasn’t full so can’t explain the inattentiveness of the servers. However, there was one waiter (a blond guy) who was fantastic, and even though he wasn’t serving our area he went the extra mile to assist where he could. Without a doubt, his customer service skills should be used as the benchmark for others!
Difficult to justify the price, very good food but our driver dropped at the door and found his place cleared away before he joined the rest of the party, waiting staff polite but perfunctory. Restaurant, like the whole hotel feels like it needs a face lift - have not been for 30 months since getting married there - likely to be that long again! Needs to improve if charging a premium
Beautiful setting and wonderful service - the afternoon tea went down a treat and the scones are absolutely wonderful - melted in the mouth and delicious!
Lovely Sunday Lunch excellent food & service
