Good afternoon tea with a nice selection of hot drinks in a cosy atmosphere, despite the size of the room. Sweet treats could be a little improved but overall, the food is good.

It took over 25 minutes to pay our bill. Service very slow. Saw 4 people beside us leave as they were 25 minutes waiting to order drinks. Disorganised in general. Some of the sandwiches had very little food in them. Overall disappointing.

My parents and I had a wonderful time at The Westbury where we recently visited for afternoon tea. The food was delicious and we sampled more tea than we could have imagined! Our waitress, Courtney from Donegal, was fantastic and nothing was too much trouble for her. Thank you very much Courtney and The Westbury team for a wonderful day. Best regards Susan

Our server was fabulous, could not do enough for us and made us feel comfortable and welcome from the moment we arrived. It is an annual tradition to come as a family before Christmas but I hope we're not waiting a year before we have this treat again!

A lovely afternoon tea in the Gallery last Saturday. On top of everything else, its a pleasure to watch the mechanics of the hotel work, by observing the staff doing a great job.

I don't believe the service was as prompt as it should have been, with numerous servers seeming to avoid eye contact when I tried to get their attention. I enjoyed the scones and egg sandwiches but unfortunately myself and the rest of my party found the rest of the food lacking, expecially given the cost of the afternoon tea.

We had a lovely lunch at the Gallery! The chicken curry was delicious. Our waitress Fiona was very friendly and attentive. We will definitely return in the not too distant future.

You need more experienced staff at this busy time of year. All the servers seems very nice but lacked the experience to manage the fairly tight time slots allocated to tables. I could tell she was trying her best but the women who served us was very awkward in managing things when our desserts were slow to arrive and our time slot had finished, asking us to move tables in a rather brusque fashion. As I said, I could tell she was a pleasant girl trying her best, but a slick front of staff member would have made us feel warmly accommodated while also keeping the flow of seating going. Service fell well short of what I would expect of a hotel of this calibre. You also need staff in the ladies toilets at such a busy time of year.

We were in the Gallery Thursday and Friday night. The bar service was really poor. On both occasions our drinks were served separately at least 10mins apart. Why ? We overheard another customer complaining that they were 25 mins waiting for 2 glasses of wine. Hope this helps you improve your service. We also had afternoon tea which was very good and the service was also excellent.

Sarah was an excellent host. Myself, husband and 20 month old had afternoon tea yesterday. From the manager to all the hosts and staff they all stopped to chat to my daughter. Sarah went away and came back with a teddy bear which thrilled my daughter. This is our second Christmas to visit the Westbury and we will continue our family tradition. All staff are a credit to the hotel.

From the moment my wife and I arrived we were greeted warmly and shown to our table promptly. A staff member, a lady, came and explained the Afternoon Tea menu to us advising that we could make some changes if required. She also advised us of the various teas and coffees on offer and that they were available to sample in numerous varieties. She then indicated the waiter who would be looking after us. The waiter was friendly and efficient and catered very well to our requirements. The Gallery was very festive and the festive decor added to the ambience. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It is approximately 2 years since we have taken Afternoon Tea with you but we will not wait such a long time again before returning. Excellent. Thank you Myles and Anne O Neill

Service very good and compliments to front of house staff. Food - disappointing. Sandwiches mediocre, scones average and deserts while pleasant were not above average and have seen much better elsewhere.

We attended for afternoon tea for 4 people. Considering the cost the quality of food was extremely disappointing. The sandwiches were made with sub standard ingredients and the bread was no better than a standard sliced pan. I was treating guests so it wasn’t appropriate to complain at the time. I would not come again for afternoon tea despite the pleasent service and fabulous surroundings. The service was also average. We asked for fresh tea and coffee and had to wait for a significant length of time for it to arrive. Overall a disappointing and expensive experience.
