Service staff were all lovely but the actual service was very poor. We waited until our tea was cold before we got any milk. My daughter waited until we were melt finished to have her drink also which we had to ask three times for. Considering it wasn’t very busy there was huge lack of communication between staff.

Surroundings were lovely and staff were very attentive and helpful. Sandwiches were fresh and tasty. Scones were awful. Didn’t taste fresh and the cakes were ok. Booked with 25% discount and was charged full price. Had to get the bill amended which wasn’t a problem.

Initial service found to be slow in comparison to others dining. The mocktail was missed off completely until we requested it on two occasions. A second pot of tea also took two separate requests.

Came here for christmas afternoon tea with work colleagues. We had called ahead to make sure we had 2 separate tables because we were from separate households and to make sure we had separate cake stands for each person to avoid any COVID risk. Both of these directions were not passed on to the wait staff and therefore we spent about 15 minutes prior to sitting down, sorting this out. When we finally sat down we chose our menus and tea. this came in a reasonable time. However one of my colleagues only eats halal and as a result was given the vegan menu. BUT this was not as good as the normal menu- given she could only not eat the meat options I feel they should have accommodated this better. We also asked for glasses of water and extra tea but that took about 30 mins to arrive. when it finally came to us leaving it took about 45 minutes to get the bill from someone as people seemed to be walking away from us. Nothing to do with the meal but we spent almost £100 and still had to pay the £7.20 parking for 3 hours... not happy

Although not as busy as past years, the quality of the afternoon tea was as good as always. Staff were attentive and friendly, nothing was too much trouble (although it did feel understaffed). Nice touch to have boxes on hand for people to take leftover cakes home with them.

I was disappointed that the indoor car parking was not complimentary with afternoon tea as it was last year.

The room was very crowded. I was sitting back to back with the person on the next table. Seats were not 2m apart at all. I’m awaiting a message from the covid app as I type. Yea choice was extensive and tasty. Food was beautifully presented and delicious.

I was for the first time dissapointed with the Celtic Manor afternoon tea. The savoury option was very little 2 bite sandwiches. Two of the tiers were filled with cakes. Two scones each !! I feel were just to fill the look of the bottom tray. For £60 for two of us it was a very very poor selection of food. Spoilt my Birthday. Very dissapointing. Savoury option awful.

It was my second time here. Food and service as always was amazing. Tried sitting us on a tiny table again for four people so requested to move. We had a vegan with us and although their food was tastey they had much less to eat than us. That is me being extremely picky as it was a fantastic visit

The resort was extremely quiet so the atmosphere wasn’t the same, however all Covid related! Value for money excellent as I had bought a voucher in the New Year sales.

Attentive service which offered continuous drink top ups. Delicious sandwiches and savouries. Imaginatively presented cakes. Imaginative children’s selection. The only thing I’d improve on is the offering of teas to include such as oolong and rooibos. Amazing collection of fruit teas though.

We were greeted by the manager who made us show our driving licence because of covid we explain we had left it in the car and we were checking in today. He makes us go all the way back to the car in the rain to get our driving licence (to a very far away car park). But when we sat down the next table was much less that 2 metres away probably about 50cm to a group on the next table. Seems like a ridiculous double standard.

It was a lovely afternoon as always. The only gripe I would have is we had no milk for the tea/coffee, we had to ask for the mulled wine which we got over half way through the afternoon tea and the cucumber and dill sandwich was tasteless. I do wish you could have a clean plate between the savoury and sweet course. I bring my mum at least once a year and she always loves it and I will continue to bring her. Merry Christmas to you all
