About Afternoon Tea at Cliveden
Built in 1666 by the 2nd Duke of Buckingham, as a gift to his mistress, Cliveden House has remained a pinnacle of intrigue and glamour for the elite.
Enriched with antique furniture and period features, it has stayed true to its roots whilst also providing a luxurious setting to rest, meet and play.
Now, our Grade I stately home set upon 376 acres of National Trust grounds is a luxurious five-star hotel, ready and waiting to welcome you in.
Can't answer about atmosphere as this Dining Experience was collecting a Mother's Day hamper and not eating at the hotel (still under COVID-19 restrictions).
An absolutely delightful tea, as if straight from the kitchen. Fresh, tasty - hugely impressive.
Just a fabulous Mother’s Day afternoon tea. Highly recommended.
Absolutely fantastic the service was so quick organised and efficient, the staff were so friendly and smiley and the food was delicious. My mum absolutely loved it and it made Mother’s Day so special thank you to all the team.
Unfortunately our experience was negative. We ordered a regular afternoon tea for our son but the lady put it though as child tea. When we pointed this out all the food was taken away and our order put at the end of the queue. Although we were one of the first to arrive, we got served after the entire restaurant, sitting for an entire hour with no food and just a glass of lukewarm mulled wine. Then we didn't get served tea until after we finished all our savouries and had to ask for the bill 3 times and twice for someone to take payment from us. There didn't seem to be anyone managing the service and all the waiters only stayed around the entrance and never bothered with our corner table. Hugely disappointing experience..
I adore Cliveden, and what makes it so special is the staff. You guys are amazing, I always feel so welcome and so at home when I walk through your doors.
Incredible service, wonderful food - will definitely be back!
Service and food was amazing together with the settong
We had a wonderful time. Food was delicious and the service was excellent. A suitably festive atmosphere and a beautiful setting.
Disappointed with this special afternoon tea, a one off for us as not rich but we had already booked gluten free and told on the phone would be catered for and would get mince pies etc. On the day nobody knew about the gf option and had to ask twice for gf. Sadly no gf mince pie and the same tart twice which was a bit poor and thought there would be a little more thought gone in.
Absolutely loved it . Really special memories made, we will definitely be back !
Such a fabulous afternoon, celebrating my daughters Birthday. Exquisite savoury dishes, delicious scones but cakes disappointing and unappetising.
Lovely tea in a lovely atmosphere!
Had a wonderful afternoon tea at Cliveden celebrating a birthday. The view from our table was lovely. The food and service was amazing. Cannot wait to go back! Such a special place.
Excellent food, fantastic service and a table with a view. Thanks so much to the wonderful team at cliveden- we will be back!
Hello, I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you and your colleagues for a most wonderful afternoon tea. This visit was particularly poignant as Afternoon Tea at Cliveden was always my mother's pre Christmas treat. Unfortunately my mother died suddenly some six weeks ago and I felt I wanted to continue the tradition in her absence. All the sadness we have been feeling left us during our afternoon with you and I can happily say I have seen my old father smile and laugh as he always did. So thank you all again.
From arrival to departure, service was exceptional. The staff and venue ensured a truly memorable experience, made even more special at Christmas with gorgeous decorations.
Amazing place with lovely views and great atmosphere. The quality of the food served at afternoon tea I thought was below par, no filling in the sandwiches just a smear of something? Good selection of teas and service impeccable. Special treat but need need to upgrade food quality
The staff were absolutely amazing. Possibly the best service we’ve ever received. To be commended. The venue is amazing and superbly maintained. It’s almost like going back in time to the turn of the century. Thanks so much.
Lovely experience. Were made to feel very welcome. Delicious food. Appreciated the option to request more of things.
The staff couldn’t have been more friendly, the whole experience was great. I had my 5months daughter with me and a lovely staff member even showed me to the baby changing facilities when needed so I didn’t get lost as it’s a bit of a walk.
What an amazing afternoon experience in such different times. The main thing that stood out to me was the exceptional levels of service and the wonderful friendly staff. Not to mention the food which was Devine this is truly an memorable tea for all the right reasons.
Loved it! We had the best festive afternoon and the entire staff, from car park to front desk to wait staff, were all absolutely fantastic! Couldn’t fault them. Would recommend to anyone and will be back soon. Thank you and merry Christmas!
A little expensive but lovely
