About Stanbrook Abbey Hotel
Delicious food complemented by wonderful views, Stanbrook Abbeys Restaurant dining rooms offer an elegant, laid back experience, which celebrates our seasonal collection of menus designed to indulge and delight the senses.
This was our return visit after we got married there last year and once again the service from every member of staff was fantastic, Even walking past a member of your team they smile and ask if your ok. We already highly recommended stanbrooke and will continue to do so.
Awfull service at bar. Untrained staff, ordered 2 liquour cofffees in restaurant. Had to go down to bar, to find out where they were. I could see them behind bar, only to be cold they had gone cold. Waited a further 30 minutes from them to arrive. Staff certainly not hand picked
Food was poor quality and lacked flavour. Overpriced for the amount of food that was served. The service itself was slow and I had to continually ask the waiter for assistance (with bill, more tea etc). Would not recommended and will not return.
Beautiful location and stunning buildings tastefully decorated. The toilets were amazing ! Perfect ambience and piano music. Delicious food selection served by attentive and unobtrusive staff - nothing was too much trouble. Excellent value for money. Would highly recommend the whole Afternoon tea experience.
Wonderful lunch in beautiful surroundings
First time I've booked for afternoon tea and it was a perfect outing for myself and 2 friends, one of whom was visiting from Canada. Great service (very friendly lady from Portugal, who's name I can't remember) Will definitely be back and will recommend to friends.
We enjoyed this visit but you have to provide excellence of service throughout and not just when its convenient for your business. When I book a table for two (Sunday lunch at 2pm) I don't expect to arrive at the restaurant to find that the table isn't set and we felt we were not expected despite booking in advance.. Then despite the fact that my bill with wine was in excess of £150 its disappointing that the staff were withdrawn presumably to serve the wedding party that had begun. I had to return to the bar to settle my bill. Much to improve upon but as we live in the village you will get another chance to provide a full service.
No information when we announced our arrival as to where our tea would be served so we waited in the room where we had been served on other occasions. Service was very slow as we had to wait ages for our food and our guest asked exactly how much longer it was going to be? Also there was no excuse for delay as we were the only guests waiting to be served! Poor quality jam and no champagne did not help.Disappointing as this was a complementary tea to address the problems of last time.
The afternoon tea we had was absolutely delicious. The food was lovely, particularly the scones. The kitchen catered very well with my nut allergy which I know can be difficult with regards to afternoon teas at times. Therefore I would recommend the afternoon tea here. The only things that let down the experience was the services. Once we had received our food not one member of staff came to see if everything was okay with the food or whether we wanted refills of our pots of tea. I thought this was surprising especially as I do have a food allergy and therefore expected some interaction from the serving staff to check everything was alright. Overall it was a lovely afternoon tea.
Lovely setting. Food was well presented and very fresh. Service was professional
The overall experience was OK, but we were not really welcomed and left hanging around in the Piano lounge for a good few minutes before someone greeted us, there was also confusion as to where we were sat. There was no real engagement from the staff. Whilst the food was of good quality, the sandwiches felt as if they were hanging around for a bit. There is nothing really wrong, just expected more from the setting.
Given description that food served was fine dining it was very disappointing for the way it was presented and the lack of flavour and seasoning. Breakfast was ok although my husband felt the cooked breakfast was on the small side.
It felt like the waiters we had didn't really know what they were doing. Firstly we were given the wrong food and then the next waiter didn't seem relaxed with his role. My party would have preferred real brown bread and good quality white bread as opposed to the coloured poor quality white bread sandwiches we received. The scones were lovely and the cream quantity very generous. Cakes looked lovely and the mini cheesecakes were very tasty.
Excellent food - the chef is phenomenal! And the service was amazing!
Stayed two nights at Stanbrook, first night some service problems due to the computer being down, this meant that the service was a little slow but the food well worth the wait. Second night the service was exemplary. All in all excellent.
Booked afternoon tea for my parents as it was my moms 80 th birthday. They felt totally spoilt. Everything was lovely. Would recommend.
We had a wonderful time and will be returning. Stanbrook Abbey is a wonderful place to stay and would recommend it to anyone looking for a lovely break.
Brilliant customer service. Sandwiches and cakes seemed ok, scones were declicious.
Lovely setting ,food was average and overpriced for that reason ,great staff and service.
Met our expectations as an ideal example of the classic afternoon tea experience.
This was our first visit to Stanbrook and it will not be our last. The service was excellent - extremely attentive without being obtrusive, the atmosphere was calm and the food excellent. We were celebrating our ruby wedding anniversary and my husband's birthday...a fact which was marked by the staff in a very thoughtful way. We would not hesitate to recommend to anyone. A brilliant evening! Thank you .
Wonderful afternoon, staff fantastic. many thanks
We had a meal here that was very good, the staff were very accommodating and even provided a meal from the downstairs restaurant as the meal I wanted was not on the upstairs dining menu. Nice setting and attentive staff. Very good dining experience. Thank you.
There wasn’t any atmosphere in the restaurant when we ate We felt as soon as we had eaten the next course was on it’s way
outstanding service, really pleased with how they made the day special for my girlfriends 21st. EXCELLENT!
