Outstanding venue, food/wine and service. Chris was excellent as was the Italian waiter with the moustache and English accent.

One of those rare occasions when everything aligns perfectly. Superb afternoon tea, fantastic gardens, perfect weather, attentive but discrete staff. Can not fault it and we can be a bit picky!

Just perfect from start to finish. I’m unable to have cream or cheese and they catered so well for me. Thank you so much, we’ll be back.

Wow! We’ve dined at Gray’s Court before and I have to say that although previous experiences were good, this last visit was on a whole other level. ‘Upped their game’ would be an understatement! The food was delicious complemented by an excellent choice of wines. The outstanding feature of our evening was the level of discreet but attentive service. Well done!

Beautiful gardens! Staff very very slow and unhelpful! We had Pimms which we were excited about but with no mint! Staff blamed the bank holiday weekend even though they ad massive amounts growing in the garden! Pimms comes with Mint if you don’t have any mint or want to go get any mint you Gould explain first! Our sharing platters were ok very very small for the price and sandwiches where stale as was the tiny amount of bread we had!No other option for children we asked for something for my daughter who is quite fussy there was not even a packet of crips, option of a sandwich or even a small bowl of plain pasta!! I’ve stayed and eaten here before and was totally shocked at the difference in value for money! Really gone down hill! But having said that the location is stunning and we couldn’t have picked a nicer place to spend the day even if we had to go and source the mint for the pimms ourselves....

Absolutely loved the variety of courses. Our favorite actually turned out to be the starters, but it was a difficult choice!

Of a very limited lunch selection, one item was “off” and another less than perfect. The food took so long to arrive - around 45 minutes - that we were about to leave when it finally turned up. My drink failed to arrive at all. On a lovely warm day, you were not serving in the garden in spite of it being suitably furnished for the purpose. You have a lovely house, spectacular garden and happy staff. You just need to give a bit of thought to the needs of your guests and you could have something wonderful.

Delightful staff - courteous but thorough. Delicious things to eat - and Grey's Court is one of the most interesting houses in a city full of interesting houses! We enjoyed our lunch very much indeed.
