I was a little worried that Covid restrictions might spoil the plans for my hubby’s 50th but Manager Richard and Angel provided the perfect service in beautiful surroundings. Everything had been considered - from heat lamps to blankets for outdoor dining. The menu was extensive and delicious! What a fantastic evening for a special occasion. Thank you so much. We will definitely return.

Unfortunately due to the weather the hotel were unable to accommodate us for Afternoon Tea as the hotel wasn’t set up to take too many diners outside, there were only a few tables set up and not many with parasols. It was really unfortunate as we had booked Rhinefield to celebrate our 22nd Wedding Anniversary.

We had lunch outside because of Covid rules, on the Conservatory Terrace. We had walked to the hotel from home across the Forest having checked the weather forecast first. It was wrong! But we thoroughly enjoyed our lunch in the pouring rain. We were fine underneath the huge parasol with heater. I was so impressed by the staff who carried on regardless and with professionalism and cheerfulness, provided blankets and great service despite the dreadful weather. The food and drink were delicious.

Lovely environment. Afternoon tea was classic and nicely done. The service could be a little more attentive. I would return again.

Was so wonderful after a period of lockdown to return to Rhinefield for an excellent afternoon tea. Sandy and the waitering team we most efficient in delivery and the chef had prepared the usual fantastic spread of delicious sandwiches , scones and cakes . Accompanied by a wide selection of teas to which we had a lovely Earl Grey. The Venue had been made Covid safe and we were even afforded the use of the hotel ensuite toilet facilities that were kept spotlessly clean by the cleaner . I am much looking forward to planning another visit . Well done to the Manager and staff in making the experience so pleasant .

Excellent service. From the moment we arrived we were put at our ease. Excellent Covid precautions, toilets are so well organised too. Wonderful service from Angel and the food top standard. If you’re dipping your toe in the water after such a long time Rhinfield House is the perfect setting. Thank you for making us so welcome.

So easy to be seated and service was wonderful - love the squirrel shortbread biscuits on the side that are made by the hotel. The gardens and view beyond are fabulous and with sun out and soft seating overlooking the lawns we were truly blessed. Thank you for a relaxing break - much needed ! Will most certainly be returning.

If we were in the dining room we would not have to put up with vacuum cleaning and maintenance. Why did we have lawn mowing and a 4 metre umbrella being serviced at the next table? Not up to HPs usual standard. But the food was enjoyable and staff tried to warm us with blankets. Thank you.
