About The Conservatory
Join us for Afternoon Tea at The River Room Conservatory. A magnificent bespoke glass creation that perfectly frames the stunning setting of the cascading River Maine and lush parkland. A most splendid backdrop in which you can enjoy the decadence of a traditional Afternoon Tea.
Afternoon Tea is served daily 12.00-17.30
Lovely afternoon tea in beautiful surroundings. Plenty of food, both savoury and sweet. Great selection of teas. Very friendly staff.
Great service, food and atmosphere! :)
The 3 of us thought the soup and savouries were delicious, but sandwiches really disappointing - we didn't eat all of these. The sweets were nicely presented but a little heavy for my personal taste. The take-home boxes were lovely and didn't have to be requested. Lovely choice of teas and service was perfect.
Excellent gin tasting Very informative! Loved it!
Such a lovely afternoon spent in the River Room. Could not fault the service or quality of the afternoon tea. Festive decorations were definitely a bonus too.
One star deducted for a very minor issue, although of good quality the sandwiches were slightly firm which makes me feel they had sat uncovered causing the bread to start to become dry Apart from this all else was excellent, especially the scones and the sweet treats, tea was in plentiful supply Staff were very attentive, courteous and polite In all this was an enjoyable and rememberable experience
We had submitted dietary requirements prior to our arrival. However, we were asked again several times when we arrived. Clearly there is a lack of communication between staff members. We were sitting not far from the area where staff were gathered and, unfortunately, we could not help but hear that our dietary requests were the topic of discussion and complaint. Food: The bread was stale. The lemon sponge cakes were not fresh. Tea/coffee did not come at the same time as the food. The soup and the chocolate cake were nice though. The service was slow. Most of the staff that attended to us were nice, and responded to our requests for condiments etc. We've had afternoon tea at Galgorm before and were pleased (hence why we returned), but this time we were greatly disappointed.
Food and teas nicely presented although we had to ask for butter for the scones. Both myself and my wife’s soups and cottage pies had to be returned as they were not warm. Very disappointing as it was an afternoon tea to celebrate my wife’s 60th birthday. We had expected better.
Back ground music ? but low
Absolutely amazing afternoon tea.
Had a most enjoyable afternoon tea, food was lovely & the young lady serving us went out of her way to find our favourite tea.
Thank you for the wonderful time. The attention to detail was excellent. The 2 birthday ladies thoroughly enjoyed their treat. Wonderful experience
The best afternoon tea I've ever had, brilliant customer service and value for money! The atmosphere was lovely with the piano playing in the background. Would definitely recommend it.
Fabulous afternoon tea so fresh and tasty
Lovely food with a good range available. Beautiful live singing also
Very special place, amazing service and quality. The perfect choice for a special occasion.
had a lovely afternoon tea, staff were incredibly friendly and attentive. made the occasion of our anniversary very special.
From the moment we arrived, the staff, food and atmosphere was highly positive. Having frequented Galgorm many times, this visit was the best! The staff knew it was our anniversary and went out of their way for us. Fantastic stay. Thank you x
Lovely relaxed atmosphere and served by friendly efficient staff. Well Done Galgorm Manor.
The BEST afternoon tea in N.Ireland ! Never disappoints.
I had such an amazing time at the conservatory. The staff were so helpful and friendly- every single one! Can’t wait to book again, Tara
Food was lovely. Thank you for the vegetarian version for my daughter and your care over her strawberry allergy. Tea could possibly be slightly stronger but that's my only complaint, everything else was fabulous.
A wonderful selection of savoury items in the afternoon tea package - not just boring old sandwiches. the spicy tomato soup was amazing and the mini cottage pie was lovely. The scones were light (not heavy) and still warm and the desserts/sweets were very tasty.
The best afternoon tea that I’ve had. The selection of savoury & sweet was just perfect. Will definitely be back in the future.
