The staff were lovely. It was very well organised as this was once restaurants opened from coronavirus. I have been to many afternoon teas in London & Essex but I was really disappointed by the chairs you sit in plus the dinning ware. Also when you have the sparkling afternoon tea no-one offers you tea also. It was 34C on the day we had afternoon tea so after you had eaten our sandwiches the desserts on the top we’re melted. I would also say the coronation chicken tasted like chicken & mayonnaise unfortunately. I came away feeling a bit disappointed to be honest as I organised this for my friends birthday & I've loved dinner here in the past.

The afternoon tea was lovely and so were the staff and we were sitting by the window so it was a lovely view had I been sitting further in the restaurant it wouldn’t have been so nice. I was brought a weekend afternoon tea for two gift card for my birthday but I don’t think I would pay £29 each normally so that is why I gave 3 stars for value

I can't really comment on the value, as a friend bought the tea as a gift.

Fantastic service, staff are at hand but don’t crowd you. They all go the extra mile for Guests. Must be a lovely place to work because everyone is happy and helpful. The food is so good, better than the usual afternoon tea, with unusual Sandwiches and gorgeous little cakes. There is always plenty of food. Not My first, and not my last visit.

Fantastic afternoon tea to celebrate my daughter’s 30th birthday. Staff were attentive and polite. Nothing was too much trouble. Lovely atmosphere. Social distancing observed and full cleaning of tables and chairs between guests. Can’t wait to visit again.

Couldn’t wait to get back to the Roslin and the afternoon tea didn’t disappoint. Would have loved to go in the terrace afterwards but I know it’s hard right now

Firstly I understand not all areas are open due to works being done and Covid, but afternoon tea is much nicer in the tea room, not the large dining room where we were. Also what has happened to the scones? A third of the size! The deserts weren’t as nice as my last visit either. The extra glass of bubbly we had was charged at £12 a glass! So all in all not impressed! Our bill was £99! (Inc gratuity)

I felt we could've had a little more savoury food as it seemed far more "dessert based". That said the food was excellent.

Afternoon tea was lovely, great service. All staff very pleasant and attentive. Only disappointment was the price I paid for a glass of wine quite extortionate!

Great view over the estury. Atmosphere is second to none. It was a pleasure to come back. Good Social distancing and tables were well spread out. We always enjoy our Afternoon tea at the Roslin, and this was a welcome return after a very difficult time for them. Good luck for the future.

Had a christmas voucher bought for us which we couldn't use previously due to Covid. Surprised to find we had to pay an extra £3 on top of the voucher price, i'm guessing to to a price hike?

Very happy with my visit for afternoon tea at the Roslin. In these uncertain times I was slightly apprehensive, but greeted with hand sanitising stations and plenty of room between tables to keep social distancing. Food was great as usual only thing I missed was the mini quiche that you used to get with the afternoon tea.

A real treat after being in for so long. Service was friendly and efficient, but not obtrusive and food was delicious. Felt safe with the social distancing measures implemented and lots of hand gel available.
