We thoroughly enjoyed indulging ourselves on the scrumptious selection of items on the plates and the tea in the pot. A real treat!

We were well looked after by Custodio and it was evident that he took great pride in delivering a top class experience for guests.

Had afternoon tea as part of the spa package, which together was good value for money. Our server Custodio was really great with us and brought us everything we asked for. One criticism is that I think there should have been more than one waiter dedicated to the afternoon tea. Custodio was very busy serving all the tables with a little intermittent help from one member of staff, and it could be difficult to catch their attention eg. to ask for a tea refill. The food itself was tasty and a lot of selection, however the fillings of the sandwiches were a bit sparse - eg. in the ham and red onion roll there was only 2 pieces of onion in my sandwich. The cakes however were delicious. As for atmosphere, the Olive Tree was lovely. But, we were assembled into the restaurant almost like a conveyor belt, with each table being sat directly next to each other as we arrived. I think it would have been nicer to have had choice as to where to sit, so that it did not feel so regimented. Overall a pleasant day but I did expect a bit more ease and luxury considering the location.

Had a lovely time the young male waiter I think his name was Brett was so helpful and made us feel like we were the only ones there. I am going to book again and bring my mum.

Room was half full yet all tables around us occupied which made it noisy & not so relaxing - I guess just so easier for service! Cakes didn't look homemade but were ok. Overall not the best afternoon tea we have had but our guests enjoyed it.

Chicken sandwich was meant to be with garlic mayo as stated on menu but it was plain. Not much variety of selection, felt a very boring selection of sandwiches.

I bought this as a treat for my mother’s 70th birthday, along with some spa treatments. We had a lovely day. The food was excellent and the service was too. The staff, including Custodlo, were very attentive and particular. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

It would be a good idea to offer further top ups of hot water or another pot of tea. But it might have been available if we’d asked.

The quality and quantity of food was excellent. The Olive Tree restaurant is lovely but I didn't like the fact we put at the back of the restaurant which is darker than other areas. It was a nice day and it would have been better if we'd been placed in the conservatory area where we'd have benefitted more from natural daylight Staff were polite but not very attentive. I only had one cup of coffee - no top up was offered and I had to go and look for someone when I wanted to box up some cakes Overall good value for money - but only because of the food quality

Service was very disappointing as we had to ask for our glasses of Prosecco three times before they eventually arrived. We found the scones very dry and not as described and the same with the sandwiches very dry. I also noticed lots of people around us left a lot of the scones and sandwiches. I do have to say the small cakes were delicious especially the peach chocolate pot 😋

I was disappointed that the conservatory was closed due to maintenance, it would have been nice to have been told about this the week before when I booked, I might have waited to book until this area was reopened. The atmosphere was not so nice in the lounge area. Also the menu stated that the scones would be warm but they were completely cold when served. This is the 4th time I have had afternoon tea here but I am quite likely to choose an alternative venue next time as I feel there is better value and a nicer ambience elsewhere.

Staff were friendly and the atmosphere was good. However the food was awful for the money. I’ve had afternoon tea dozens of places and this is one of the worst for the money. The tiny rolls and sandwiches had hardly any filling. Didn’t get traditional sponges and pastries. Was more like mouses / puddings in my opinion they do this to save time as this is the type of puddings I’ve had in the evening buffet at the olive tree. Nothing stood out, nothing was delicious. It was below average food, that wasn’t cheap. I eat afternoon tea at the Angel in Abergavenny and the glen yr Afon. It’s a similar price and miles ahead.

Chilled sandwiches, no warm scones, uninteresting fillings that lacked flavour. Cakes lacked real variety. This was a gift but If we had to pay for this we would be very disappointed. To experience a really good tea, your team should go to the Angel in Abergavenny.
