I arranged a surprise afternoon tea for my Auntie here, the food, staff and building are just fantastic! Nothing was too much trouble and the food was delicious. Excellent communication with Rhiannon. Will definitely be returning!

Such a beautiful place! We tried the gentleman’s tea which was so nice and different. The food couldn’t have tasted fresher and nicer and the staff were so friendly and helpful without being around all the time

Can highly recommend the wine pairings. Steak tartare was just the best. Surprised Foie Gras was on the menu. I asked if we could have something else instead; not a problem, the crab replacement was lovely.

An elegant classical setting in a quintessential English hotel with plenty of character. The food was lovely - though I wish I'd had the 5 course rather than 9 course taster. Perhaps 7 instead of 9 would be better? The wine pairing was very good and the service excellent.

We had a lovely afternoon tea. Unfortunately we were alone in the dining room, which was rather strange. You could do with an area in the bar/lounge with a table for the afternoon tea when only one table was being used.

One of the best meals I have had in my life. Perfect service, it all felt so special. The fact it is all local produce is amazing. Thank you for a fabulous evening.

The whole experience was excellent, service, food quality, surroundings etc. The food definitely held its own with other restaurants in this category anywhere in the uk. The only improvement I would make would be the deserts, they were good but not quite as good as everything else and probably just a bit too big after 9 courses. Overall very good and I will be returning very soon.

Visited The Bow Room for a 30th Birthday afternoon tea. Was a very pleasurable and memorable experience. The food was lovely with the team catering well for our dietary requirements (who knew artichoke could taste so amazing in a sandwich!). Felt very relaxed with the team just letting us gradually make our way through the food over a couple of hours. Sitting in the large alcove was lovely and cosy, the perfect way to hide away from the the thunder and rain outside. Will recommend to friends!

We really enjoyed the whole evening and the food was delicious, but not enough vegetables. However this did not spoil our evening. We will be back.

We had an afternoon tea booking following our wedding at the Bootham Suite. Everything about our visit was wonderful! We were able to sit outside in the gardens as the weather was nice which added to the experience. The service was the perfect balance of attentive yet laid back, the food was delicious and the hotel and grounds were beautiful. Thank you!

We had been treated to Afternoon tea and it's up there with the best. The patisserie were beautiful and tasted heavenly. The service was excellent and the staff were all very welcoming and very efficient. As the sun shone we sat in the walled garden which is just lovely. A perfect afternoon. Thank you

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!
