We always thoroughly enjoy our visits to the Mount Hotel & particularly to the Drawing Room. 6 of us ate the feast which is called afternoon tea & it was a real treat! Our table in the window was just right, the food was excellent & the staff were very attentive & friendly. The obligatory "Doggy Bag" was needed for food too good to waste & we all loved it!
Was quiet as we visited in January, service was excellent, food lovely, will be back
Very attentive staff, beautiful, fresh food, plenty of choice. Very accommodating of dietary requirements. A brilliant birthday treat for my mum who loved it as much as I did.
It was a lovely experience. The staff made us feel special
Food was really nice, waitress was really polite and professional.
Absolutely dead. Over priced and food was standard. Was quite disappointed and certainly not worth it. Should have booked some place else. Not at all impressed.
This was supposed to be "Festive Tea" The scones were big but not nice, the jam was cheap and nasty, the sandwiches were poor to say the least! was very disappointed. We were 4 in the drawing room itself was nice and the view into the garden very pleasing. I took 3 members of staff there and I was really sorry I didn't go somewhere else!
Hi Mrs Fernando Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I am sorry that you felt the afternoon tea didn't live up to expectations & only wished you had mentioned something at the time. We are very passionate about our offerings & whilst we have received many lovely comments relating to the service & food we also appreciate that we are only as good as the last meal served. Thank you again & please be assured your comments have been discussed in great depth Warmest regards Neil
I have already provided some feedback. I was extremely disappointed with your festive afternoon tea. The cakes were not very festive. Presentation was poor, not all sandwiches cut to the same size, chip in the dish the jam was served in. I had explained before going that we didn't want any fish sandwiches, I expected that they would be replaced with extra of the other options but instead you provided one plain cheese sandwich each. Service was also disappointing, one pot of tea forgotten about, staff seemed disinterested and pre occupied. I expected much more for 22.95 per person
Hi Sarah Thank you for taking the time to leave a review following your afternoon tea experience. I am sorry that you felt disappointed with not only the offerings but also the service & only wished you had brought it to our attention on the day, as you would of found the team to have not only been apologetic but would of also gone the extra mile in ensuring that you left happy, especially regarding the alternative sandwiches. I appreciate that alternatives were offered to the prawn & salmon but if there was something specific you would of preferred it wouldn't of been a problem. We do hope that you afford us the opportunity of looking after you again & should you do so then please don't hesitate to let me know Warmest regards Neil
The Staff were very attentive. Good food but a little less than USUAL?
A first time visit for and we were not disappointed. A friendly and welcoming restaurant manager escorted us to our table and an equally friendly waitress served a beautiful festive afternoon tea with a sweet mulled wine. We found the food to be of excellent quality and very well presented. Top marks to all concerned.
Enjoyed a delightful festive afternoon tea, in beautiful surroundings, couldn't fault anything, food was nicely presented, and served by courteous staff. Started off my Christmas festivities for 2019 nicely.
Please just remember customers allergies as I mentioned mine several times yet it was still forgotten when food was brought out and I had to raise my concern.
The service was really slow we were not given milk with our tea and had to wait quite a while for staff to be about. There was also not enough cutlery but the food was Lovely and I have been to the mount many times just a shame about the service on that day.
Service was excellent we were really well looked after.Only issue was Vegan provision for 2 of our party was not impressive but we would definitely return
HI Linda Thank you for taking the time to leave such a lovely review. It was a pleasure looking after you & should you afford us the opportunity of looking after you again in the future then please don't hesitate to contact us directly so we can discuss the dietary needs & preferences Warmest regards Neil
I brought my mom for afternoon tea for her birthday she said it was the best afternoon tea she's ever had.
Excellent food. World class live music.
We were upgraded to a private room which was perfect. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and they even asked the children what they would like and made sandwiches especially for them. The food was gorgeous and so different to other afternoon teas we have had. Thank you so much for a fantastic experience to celebrate my dad's 80th birthday.
The food was very poor. Ordering the duck was a big mistake as we could not even cut through it, as it was very tough! No apology after mentioning it to the waitress when she asked if we enjoyed our meals! We did not stay for breakfast! We were also overcharged for our meals and will be looking to be refunded. Poor presentation of all five meals ordered.
Hi Charles I am somewhat disappointed to read your review especially given the correspondences. Unfortunately following an investigation into your comments of which i have discussed with yourself its quite clear that this isn't a true reflection of events during your meal or even at breakfast. During the meal you were checked upon numerous times & at no stage were we made aware of any issues relating to any of the dishes served until clearing. At this time you mentioned that the duck was tough, however with very little if any duck left on the plate there was very little we could do in relation to discussing the matter as a team & also with our suppliers. The charges that you refer to were correct & the confusion was caused due to the way the bill was asked to be shared between 2 rooms. With regards to breakfast then your comments are certainly unjust as you agreed. I am sorry if this comes across in any way other than informative but as a family run business we are the first to hold our hands up should we make mistakes but we are also proud of our team & the offerings, as such should comments be un-true then we will defend ourselves. Than you again & i hope to see you soon Warmest regards Neil
