Enjoyed the wonderful Festive Afternoon Tea here recently. The food was delicious and to a high quality with very generous portions. It was hard to choose a favourite from all we got but the spiced beef sandwich and the mini Baileys cheesecake were my favourite. Service was 5 star and the atmosphere was so relaxing and festive. A very enjoyable experience and I would highly recommend and will return.
Fantastic spot. Beautiful food and very friendly staff. The non alcoholic cocktail and treat were lovely additions too.
Fantastic service as always. I love coming here for afternoon tea, the atmosphere is so relaxed. Beautiful setting.
Your staff were absolutely superb, dealt with my coeliac issues brlliantly and nothing was too much trouble. It was a fantastic way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
Stunning food excellent service, though I am dissatisfied that a little something wasn't provided for my toddler, as had been on a previous visit.
The waiter was very helpful and friendly. Top marks for him. Food was only ok. Found it a bit odd having afternoon tea in the lobby area, would have preferred it in the bar area.
Service was excellent as was the setting, and decoration. I personally liked the healthy take on afternoon tea but others might be a bit disappointed. I would advertise that it is not a traditional afternoon tea which would actually draw some people in.
The afternoon tea at the River Lee Hotel was superb! My old friend and I were having a long needed catch up and the hotel, ambiance and food were amazing. The two gorgeous ladies in attendance on the day were warm, friendly, helpful and graciously even took a few pics for us before we departed. Thanks to all, most sincerely, you have left a lasting memory for us and we will return again soon! Keep doing what you are doing and thank you all. Best, Michelle.
Excellent service by the waitress. She went above and beyond to make the afternoon special. She is a Great asset to the hotel.
Had an amazing experience. Beautiful setting and beautiful food. The service was impeccable.
We had a lovely time. Great afternoon tea!
The whole afternoon was a wonderful experience and I would recommend afternoon tea at the River Lee Hotel. I will definitely book again. Special mention to Dan who made us feel welcome and special
I really enjoyed the afternoon tea. I had the vegetarian option and everything was just delicious. I will definitely return again to experience what else the hotel has to offer.
Brilliant service. Thanks for a accommodating my friend with nut and gluten free options which were very tasty. The birthday plate was a lovely touch. Fabulous table setting. Thanks for making it such a lovely experience.
Really relaxed environment, great service and great food.
Everything was lovely.Food was amazing. We celebrated out friend 40th b day in style, that's for sure! Malwina was a great server. If i was to have one comment on the food it would be that i would prefer couple more savory treats - we were all full of sugar:)
We had a fantastic afternoon for our baby shower, thanks so much!
I feel been charged 10 euro for a glass of Prosecco a bit of a joke considering it was 7.50 for a glass on the cocktail menu. The food was nice but not plentiful, i would not recommend it. Also the whiskey is from Midleton...not Middleton!
Dear Michelle My Name is Pierce Lowney. I am the General manager here at the River Club. Firstly thank you for taking the time for sending you feedback to us. I am surprised to see you were over charged for prosecco. I would be happy to refund the difference that you were overcharged and i am still investigating how this happened. We are currently in the process of changing our menus also and we will certainly be correcting our spelling mistakes! I am glad to see you enjoyed your food and I look forward to welcoming you back. Kind Regards Pierce Lowney
Best afternoon tea I have experienced and staff were amazing.
Everything was perfect, as afternoon tea should be. Above accomodating and superb staff and service. There was nothing about our experience that I could fault. Excellent atmosphere and environment, will hopefully be back there soon.
The atmosphere was really nice and comfortable but the food was very disappointing and expensive. I have no problem paying for good food. The selection in the menu was small but the most the disappointing was the food itself. Mairead
Everything was excellent. Beautiful afternoon tea, lovely surroundings and great staff. We had allergy requirements which were all catered for. Looking forward to next visit
It was honestly lovely. Would definitely book again and the O’Connaills chocolate bar at the end was a really lovely touch.
We really enjoyed our afternoon tea, lovely atmosphere, and we were not rushed at all.
We had a lovely girly get together over afternoon tea. The food was delicious and the service was great. Thank you!
