Excellent Afternoon Tea for 2. Food lovely. Sadly, no fizz allowed due to latest lockdown tiers, and for the same reason, the ambience felt a little flat, but that is no reflection on the hotel.

Lovely hotel setting for afternoon tea. Table was set with our name on the table. Staff were friendly. The only thing I would change fir afternoon tea is the fancy cakes as there were to many. I would prefer to have seen a few savories instead of all the small cakes. I will definitely book again.

Had takeaway afternoon tea, food and interaction with staff was up to usual high standard, looking forward to returning to handpicked hotels when current madness is over.

Was a shame to be seated in modern extension of beautiful old building. Food and service okay but server was not particularly attentive and we were not offered a refresh/top up of tea. Overall it was a pleasant enough experience but I didn't feel like it was particularly good value for money when you consider the alternatives available in Edinburgh and surrounding area.

We enjoyed a lovely Afternoon tea at Norton House hotel. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. They had a note of our dietary requirements and checked them again with us when we were seated. The food was absolutely delicious! We had ordered a child's afternoon tea for our seven year old son too and he LOVED everything. Would highly recommend

The food was delicious, the staff were very friendly & attentive. The atmosphere wasn’t a normal one due to the situation we are all living in, but that didn’t mean I didn’t have a lovely couple of hours. I definitely recommend afternoon tea here, & will return in the future.

Our family group of five very much enjoyed our afternoon tea at the Norton House Hotel. The sandwiches and cakes were all excellent and well presented - particular favourite was the carrot cake. The teas were loose leaf and the coffee also really good. We felt COVID safe with the procedures put in place at the hotel and would like to thank Lauren for caring for us so well and the Chef for preparing our mini feast!

Take away Afternoon Tea was a special experience in this strange time. Excellent and friendly service right from booking. Lovely presentation with the gazebo, bunting and gold ribbon. And tasty food! Thanks and well done to all involved.
