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.

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..

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.

Such a fabulous afternoon, celebrating my daughters Birthday. Exquisite savoury dishes, delicious scones but cakes disappointing and unappetising.

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.

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.

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.
