We had a lovely time enjoying our afternoon cream tea. The service was excellent and the staff were most attentive. We were a bit surprised that when we left we were not allowed to take our un-used scones with us which seemed to be a bit odd, is there a reason for this. Also when we were presented with the bill we not credited with our voucher so we had the embarrassment of having to point this out and wait for a member of staff to check. However, this did not spoil our afternoon but it is perhaps a area that needs to be checked. We hope to return again.

We have arrived to the restaurant and we were seated, it took asking 3 times for a high chair (was indicated in the booking as well), we had our 1 years old daughter with us. We ordered our meals and our 7 years old daughter got her child meal (£13)and it was served on a plastic plate (IKEA ones)! My daughter was so disapointed as she was expecting a normal plate, we asked for it to be changed and the waiter came back with an empty plate to which i have explained its missing the food. My husband then seen him just empty the plastic plate into the normal plate (it should have been done in the kitchen and pay attention to the presentation)! There was 6 triple cooked chips on our adult plates!!! We do understand we are paying for the quality but the trimmings for Lamb Cutlets are 1 mushroom and 6 chips! It doenst justify the price of £34!!! We didnt feel the service was great and the food was good but took so long to be served! There should be some kids activities on offer as this place is supposed to be child friendly! We went to the bar for coffee and there too the service was slow and only served with half a cup of coffee! The fudge though was great!

I would of liked to sit near a window, the room was quiet with no music and all we could hear was the table next to us.

Excellent food, tremendous service. Yes it’s expensive but the quality is incredibly high. Sunday lunch at Chewton Glenn is one of the great pleasures!

The service was extremely disappointing. Not to the standard we were expecting. We invited friends to join us for lunch as a special thank you. They have never had the pleasure of dining at the Chewton Glen so imagine my disappointment when the service was somewhat short of perfection.

Absolutely fabulous! When the food was served I could smell the freshly baked scones. Also enjoyed the very well chilled champagne

We had a wonderful experience for afternoon tea for my daughter’s 17th birthday. George our waiter was attentive and informative about the Rich champagne experience. We had a great afternoon and look forward to returning.

After calling in advance to inform them it was my wife’s birthday (and I was told she would receive a celebration plate at dessert) sadly nothing came. We had splashed out to stay at CG for the weekend to celebrate her milestone birthday. Our waiter was very apologetic when I informed him, but nothing was offered. Whilst the food was fine (portions are very small however, namely two tiny scoops of ice cream for £12 for dessert) we left feeling very disappointed that such a basic request at a 5 star hotel/restaurant couldn’t even be noted and executed properly. Therefore we have chosen to not return to CG in the future.

We spent a wonderful Sunday afternoon at The Dining Room at Chewton Glen enjoying afternoon tea for my partners birthday with a friend. It was the best afternoon tea we have had. The cakes were delicious as were the sandwiches and we each got offered another round of sandwiches! Excellent value for money, friendly service and a lovely atmosphere! Would highly recommend and we will definitely be back soon!!

The afternoon tea was a gift given to us to celebrate a special birthday last year. Obviously due to covid we utilised the gift to celebrate my birthday this year. It was a shame that the afternoon tea was served in the main dining room area and not the conservatory so that you could look out onto the grounds during this beautiful time of year as the main dining room was quite large with 7 tables used, but we understand this may be due to the social distancing aspect. Our two waiters were very obliging and the tea was lovely. Thank you

We had a most enjoyable evening at The Dining Room. Despite the Covid rules, we never felt awkward or restricted in any way and that is mainly due to the excellent service. Food was of excellent quality and the ambiance was warm and welcoming.
