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.

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.

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

My sister and I brought our Mum for afternoon tea as a birthday treat. We had a fabulous time. Food was delicious and staff could not have been more helpful, attentive and friendly. We will be back, thank you.

All aspects of our visit was 1st Class and we enjoyed a most memorable afternoon. We also very much enjoyed the music provided by the pianist who played a non stop number and variety of splendid tunes. We will certainly book up again.

My partner and I took his sister along for afternoon tea, she lives down south, works for the NHS so doesnt visit much and had never been to Hardwick Hall, Park or surrounding areas. The Hall had recently been refurbished and was looking amazing. A blonde lady (so sorry didnt get her name) served us and she was superb! She moved us to another table as there was going to be a bit of noise from a builder installing shelving, which was totally fine as she was just so polite and attentive all the time. The food was adorable, and we took some fab photo's! Highly recommended and will certainly visit again, soon!

not my best experience eating out... I expected much better, I ordered a Sirloin steak medium... what i got was a warmed through grisley piece of meat, which was not cooked properly, it had never touched hot oil 28 day aged steak is what i expected, that meat was never 28 day aged... I've had better from Aldi... starter was fine... the desert disappointing microwaved (not fresh made)sticky toffee pudding with a tiny amount of toffee sauce.. Regards one disappointed diner...

Great value afternoon tea. Didn't feel like we were on a conveyor belt or 'herded' into one area either which I have found at some of the more expensive ones. Atmosphere was lovely and relaxing. Staff were very attentive too . I will definitely return . Great gift idea

We made a reservation for a party of 23 months ago. We waited more than 90 minutes for the Steaks, Pork, Fish etc to be served. as this is the main dishes they provide it was unacceptable. The servers were not sure what some of the steaks were and were back and forth from the kitchen, therefore the food was not as hot as it should be. We had a 10% voucher off all food and it was clear that this had not been taken from anyone's food. There was confusion and most drinks had to be repeat ordered. the celebration cake was also set on fire!

Afternoon tea for two to celebrate Wife's Birthday. Delicious food, probably the best Afternoon Tea we've had! Service was great and the two ladies working the bar/lounge area were very polite and friendly. Coincidently met a couple of ladies who were also out celebrating a 92nd Birthday. The staff spontaneously produced a platter with 2 pieces of cake for the Birthday Girls to share. Fantastic touch which made my Wife's day. A lovely thought. Thank you so much.

We booked a table online, however unfortunately when we got there the restaurant just had a list of tables and we were not on there! They said that they don't have the technology to accept online bookings... so I was a bit confused why they let you book online? The older woman looked like she was ready to chuck us out!! However the general manager was really friendly, got us sat at a table in the lounge part (which I preferred anyway) and apologised which was nice. The service was hit and miss throughout our visit - nobody checked on us whilst we were eating our main course, and we needed more gravy. My stuffing was also cold, everything was a bit cold in general with the food tbh. Overall, it was a nice meal, but I wasn't blown away and I wouldn't eat there again.
