We went to the roslin as a birthday treat for my mum. The staff were very attentive and surprised us by bringing a plate of chocolate brownies with happy birthday written on it in more chocolate to the table for my mum . A lovely afternoon tea and beautiful surroundings.

We had a wonderful experience on Friday 12th October. Amy went above and beyond to ensure our time spent in the Roslyn was all that we hoped it would be. Amy was polite, friendly, kind and helpful the whole time. We cannot thank her enough for how she made sure we had all that we needed. The food was lovely, every sandwich, cake and scone were all delicious. Thank you Amy and the Roslyn for a fantastic afternoon.

Attentive staff( which varies, depending on where you are placed). Lovely setting. A few small things could improve it; providing fabric, not paper napkins, having more than 1 plate for entire tea- sweet and savoury. Warming the scone rather than putting it out with sandwiches at the start. An actual Tea menu, being the main point of the occasion, rather than having to request it.

The afternoon tea was amazing and such good value for money. Our waitress Amie made the experience even better. The special cake for my mum's birthday was an extra special treat. I would definitely recommend this to everyone.

Second time that I have been and it is a lovely way to spend a couple of hours on a rainy day! My only criticism is that I found the room to be very noisy.

Fantastic afternoon tea. The best sandwiches I have eaten in a long time at an afternoon tea, better than The Ritz in London. My only compliant would be that some of the cakes were quite bland but looked nice. The service was brilliant.

When we arrived we were shown to the Afternoon Tea Room which is a new add on to the hotel which is lovely and its nice to sit away from the main restaurant . The tables and decor are lovely. Some table do have like little sofas with them which are comfortable We were looked after by Katy & Tanya who were amazing always checking up to see if we needed more tea and checking to see if everything was ok. The afternoon tea has come on a lot since we have been and its a lot better now. If you don't like any of the Sandwiches you can change them for different ones that are already there. The scones are just lovely and soft would love maybe to have 2 each instead of one as other places that do afternoon tea do that. The little cakes we had were just Delicious and a good size. Love the fact you get Tiptree Jam also Thank You To Tanya & Katy for looking after us. We are looking forward to the Christmas Afternoon Tea in December

Attended the Roslin for a 40th Birthday afternoon tea. We were a party of 12. We were served by a lovely lady, I think her name was Tanya? There was also another lady Katy I believe. Tanya was the most helpful and friendly host I have had the pleasure of meeting. Nothing was too much trouble and she moved tables for us due to a miscount on my behalf without batting an eyelid. She kept our tea cups full and changed sandwiches to suit. We had a vegan lady in our party who was offered the Vegan menu. The food was bought on beautiful tiered plates and looked amazing. A lovely selection of fillings. Not many of us could finish our share as there was so much! The scones were delicious with the clotted cream and the desserts on top were pleasing to the eye and mouth! All leftovers were packaged in delightful bags and shared out amongst the table. They even surprised the birthday girl with a lovely apple tart with her name and happy birthday wishes in chocolate! The venue was beautiful and decorations lovely. I would highly recommend this venue and happily return. I would like to thank the staff who served us that day as they made it extra special it wouldn’t have been the same without their personal touches.

We had afternoon Tea. The savoury items and scones were first class but the sweet items didn’t really hold up their end of the bargain. It was still lovely though and I’d do it again.

Very very busy on Sunday but table was ready after five minutes which was really pleasing, the after noon tea was good value for the money, sandwiches fresh and fillings very nice, the scones were a good size and moist, the pastries were better then most other hotels we have visited, a good selection as well.The waitresses were very busy but still had time to be friendly and very welcoming and that was a big plus, l would love to come back again , we were served by Tania and Kirsty who were excellent

We had a lovely Afternoon Tea here on Sunday. The staff were lovely however there didn’t seem to be many for the amount of people there and we did have to keep looking for the staff if we needed anything, however they were always happy to help. I do feel that it’s quite pricey in comparison to other Afternoon Tea’s in the area.
