About Rhinefield House Hotel- Lounge Bar
At Rhinefield House Hotel we delight guests with our traditional afternoon tea. What better place to enjoy this fine tradition than in this historic country house. Gaze out the ceiling high windows in either our Lounge Bar or Grill Room and take in the view whilst savouring each of our carefully prepared pastries, dainty sandwiches and the finest leaf tea, served to perfection.
A totally delightful experience in a charming decor outdoors . The staff was most helpful and friendly. We would highly recommend it .
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.
Our first visit in lockdown. Very enjoyable despite the inclement weather. Looking forward to our next visit.
Delicious lunch and excellent service.
This was our first visit and won't be our last all your staff are so lovely, polite and attentive. The setting is beautiful! The food was so delicious and the portions sizes are very generous. I can't wait to come back in the summer!
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.
Our waiter the South African man was wonderful and very helpful ... felt sorry for him though getting drenched in the rain ... thank you
Very good meal and excellent service considering the weather. Made our 50th wedding celebration feel special.
Wonderful. Great staff, lovely setting and delicious food
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 location and friendly staff. We were the only ones there and we ate outside, sadly it was quite cold but the full English breakfast was delicious. Thank you
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 .
Felt very safe and everything was well organised. Food was amazing and I cannot wait to get married here next year. 100% recommend
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.
Great venue and great service
Waiters very attentive and afternoon tea a delight
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.
Warm & Friendly an enjoyable experience
We’ll be back! Excellent food, service, location, atmosphere.
Had to wait 30 minutes for my food. Was cold and very bad service
We thoroughly enjoyed lunch on Sunday. The weather was beautiful and the food was lovely. The staff were great and have adapted well to new ways of working. See you soon.
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.
Richard and his team were fantastic. Richard was the epitome of professionalism and very friendly / welcoming. Service was of a high standard. Food and beverages very good I had the gourmet burger myself and my three guests all had great food washed down with new forest beer all great as we had a wonderful walk on the rhinefield ornamental drive before our lunch at rhinefield house Hotel.regards Eugene
