Just love coming here, like to get two weekend breaks a year, and visited three times for afternoon tea, always first class, food is always fantastic, can’t fault a thing, love our 53 mile drive, even if it’s just to relax for a few hours, in beautiful surroundings.

We had a champagne tea on a special offer which made it extremely good value but even at full price would be worth it for a special occasion. Service and friendliness of the staff was excellent and comfortable lounge with a lovely atmosphere & great food completed an excellent visit.

Young lady who served us did not inform us what the sandwiches, cakes etc were , so it was a case of guessing , and your reception staff that were on duty needed to be trained on customer service , they were rude and unhelpful , we were asking about your spa and hotel prices , but they were not interested in giving us the time of day .

We had Australian friends staying with us and wanted to treat them to a true English afternoon tea - so we chose Rhinefield House. Not only were they impressed with the house's architecture, but they were also overjoyed with the food, how it was prepared and how it was presented and served. An excellent experience and thoroughly recommended.

We had a lovely afternoon. When I first asked about afternoon on tea Boxing Day the hotel said they did not intend to do it but really glad they changed their minds. The Christmas decorations were lovely. The staff were very welcoming and the food was delicious. Thank you for a lovely afternoon.

We went for the afternoon tea (2 for 1 offer) yesterday and the food and service were great. Lovely comfy sofa and nice fresh sandwiches and great scones and cake. Our waiters were all very nice and quick to come over if we needed anything. One small thing - I think the sandwiches were spread with margarine and not butter which was a bit of a shame - also it was spread a bit thickly. The fillings themselves were lovely as was the bread.

The staff were helpful and friendly. Unfortunately the standard of food was not up to scratch. It lacked refinement. We had one standard cream tea and one savoury. The scotch egg was of very poor quality and there was only 2 very small pieces of cheese to go with the cheese scones but enough pickles to serve 8. The cake pop was not pleasant and the sandwiches were dry. The outside of the hotel is stunning but it is let down by the interior which has drab colours and needs updating. Sorry but we won’t be returning.

Champagne Afternoon tea was excellent. Attentive service from outset. Lounge setting was comfortable and very relaxing. Menu options included both sweet and savoury afternoon tea and both were delicious. Wide selection of teas and coffee and both were refreshed on request. A wonderful way to spend a winter’s afternoon. Thank you Rhinefield House.

Such friendly staff in the afternoon tea room. I really liked that I had my own afternoon tea stand because of my dietary requirements (pescatarian).

Felt that the main course (Christmas dinner) was poorly made and the drinks were very expensive. Overall, I felt the hotel is charging prices higher than they should be given the quality of food/drink and the tiredness of the hotel.

Afternoon tea... grossly overpriced ! Sandwiches were great. Scones horrendous. Especially the cheese scones? Master the recipe & you will be on to a winner. I just cannot justify what you charge though
