Afternoon tea part of spa day package. Cakes very fresh , scones delicious and sandwiches good. Service good although took us a while to find correct restaurant as spa reception staff had not explained where to go, and no one at the bar when we arrived.

The afternoon tea was delicious, i couldn't fault it at all. The portions were generous and the room was beautiful. A lovely place to spend my birthday. Thank you.

The Long Gallery is a lovely area, the decoration is fabulous. Afternoon tea was delicious although we were not visited by the waiter once it was served to check if everything was good or if we would like a fresh pot of tea. However, the whole experience was ruined by staff emptying an understairs cupboard of dining chairs, large sofa and eventually smashing something - this went on for 50 minutes before we retreated back to the sanctuary of our spa day. The whole experience was finished off with Henry the vacuum cleaner being dragged through the gallery and put to good use to give a thorough clean. So not the elegant, relaxing experience for my daughters 21st Birthday that we were hoping for - not sure what the staff were thinking.

Having been twice before I had come to expect a certain standard but the service and where we were put was very very poor. I had asked for a window seat in the long gallery. we were put with 2 others in a large empty dining room. food was lovely however I had to ask for the menu to see what we had it was not explained. our waiter seemed to struggle with any communication. he gave the menu then whipped it away without asking what we wanted to drink. i had coffee hubby had tea with a Teabag! no one checked back at all so when i popped to the loo i asked for more drinks asking for a different tea stressing no teabag. the guy at the desk who seemed to be in charge explained that the previous tea always came in a teabag? menu says different. We were not even seated by the lovely tree we only saw it when leaving the room as it was set back and only got to hear the christmas music when leaving to pay it was onky on in the long gallery!. There were plenty of spare seats free in the gallery. I felt like it could have been any time of year with no ambience. I did not make a fuss as it was a treat for my hubby which if Id gone off to complain would have spoilt the day. i truly hope you do read these reviews as our experience could have been so much better.

Me and my partner came 6 months ago and we received really poor service. Fortunately we were offered complementary afternoon tea which I attended yesterday. The service was top notch and the lady who served us this time (pregnant lady) was absolutely lovely and couldn’t do enough. I always believe in second chances and redeeming yourself and I can say you’ve definitely done that. We will be back for sure. Thank you for letting us experience the day properly.

Basic afternoon tea with not much variety. Service was almost non existence and very poor. Staff had little personality and didn't look too pleased to have to replenish our tea and coffee. Were never asked if we needed any more sandwiches (or anything for that matter). Scones were very fresh and delicious though.

Lovely setting, on a sunny day it would be nice to have the option of having afternoon tea on the terrace rather than indoors

Honestly, I very very rarely write a review regardless of whether something is good or bad. However I feel strongly about this so here goes.... We are newly weds! Married 2 days prior. On booking the room and 2 further phone calls I informed the staff of this. They informed me that they would do something special. Entered the room, which was beautiful, to find absolutely nothing. Not one flower or complimentary bottle of fizz. Nothing. Informed reception that I was disappointed with this. Later put a bottle of wine in the room, no special effort made. Evening, we went for tea, not ala carte, but we went to the cute henrys bar, the decor was lovely. We asked a lady if we were in the right place, she took time to respond as though she didnt know either. We are still here as im writing this review, lying in bed after what should have been a romantic breakfast brought to our room. The food is on the table (which is missing a foot) not eaten. On the menu last night I doodled 'newly weds', it made no difference at all. Also im a vegetarian, no alternative foods given to me. 3 hash browns dumped on top of each other. Grey scrambled egg. Toast which was like rubber and not sliced Everything was either luke warm or cold. No sauces. I really am gutted, its expensive here and I would have expected more. Staff are not overly friendly, theyre just doing their job. We have the spa this afternoon. That looks beautiful and I'm hoping its going to be lovely. From an unhappy newly wed. I will not be returning. I guess im more upset than anything, I was hoping for a personal touch, but certainly didnt get it.

Delightful building and spotlessly clean. All of the staff we met were most helpful, efficient and yet still managed to be friendly and welcoming. Our Royal prosecco tea was a present to us which we used to celebrate our 45 th wedding anniversary.

I had emailed before hand to ask for one afternoon tea to be without mayo, cucumber and mustard. This didn’t happen and we were given all of the above. Whilst the room was beautiful the tables were difficult to eat from, especially sharing from the same afternoon tea plates.
