I didn't enjoy the afternoon tea. The sandwiches were only ok and the 1 tart was very average. My favourite item was the passion fruit mouse and biscuit. The food should have and couldhave been a lot better. For £25 I expected a lot better.

Firstly I’d like to thank all the staff at the Roslyn for helping to accommodate my daughters 9th birthday party for 12 children and 10 adults. The room was just magnificent and the staff couldn’t do enough to make everybody feel at ease. Lea arranged everything and was extremely professional and did an outstanding job. I own a hotel in Majorca and I would employ Lea to run it in a heart beat. Thank you once again and I look forward to seeing you all soon. Sarah

I recently visited with my best friend as a celebration as I am unable to make her hen part later in the year and we both had a wonderful experence. The food was great and the service was wonderful even though they were very busy we felt relaxed and not at all rushed. I would defiantly recommend for a special occasion or if you just fancy treating yourself!

Took my mum for afternoon tea for her 91st birthday. She really enjoyed it. Amie and her colleague really looked after us and they accommodated her various food intolerances without any problems. Lovely food, wow factor decor, great atmosphere all added up to a perfect birthday. Thank you!

I booked afternoon tea for my friends birthday and we had an absolutely amazing time from start to finish. The lady in charge was so lovely and welcoming and we was amazed when she said she’d only been there 6 months! She was fantastic. The decor was also beautiful & of course the food & service impeccable. We will definitely be coming back

Being able to choose your cakes and maybe more savoury options. Also the options to have sandwiches refilled. Maybe a cake trolly instead of the moose desserts on the top plate. But overall a nice afternoon tea.

Had a lovely tea for my daughter's birthday. She even got a special birthday plate, with a lovely slice of cake. Food was fantastic and plenty of tea. Staff very helpful and helped with my daughter-in-law, who is diabetic and had a separate stand of less sugary food. We all had a doggy bag after...

Service could have been better had to ask more than once for our glass of Prosecco. Much confusion over bill and why were the ladies toilets being painted at a very busy period?

Beautiful cakes although a better balance (for us) would be a few more sandwiches and slightly less sweet treats. Would have also liked tea to have been served with the food - we had to ask twice for it to be brought to us.

Overpriced for what is effectively a couple of small sandwiches and a few cakes - but if a rip off if I’m honest - Additionally charging £30 for an average bottle prosecco is a disgrace. Your car park is too small as well The food is very nice and staff friendly but none of it was special

I booked this afternoon tea for my boyfriend’s birthday having never been to this hotel, or for afternoon tea before. All staff were incredibly friendly, welcoming and happy to help. I was very impressed that we were asked about dietary requirements - I’m a vegetarian and was given a separate stand to my boyfriend (who is not vegetarian). My boyfriend was presented with a plate of brownies with “happy birthday” written on the side which was a nice touch. The only downside was the tea pot was filled too high each time so the liquid came out of the top rather than straight out of the spout - made a mess of the tablecloth! Otherwise a really relaxing and enjoyable afternoon, thank you.
