A lovely afternoon tea, in delightful surroundings, to celebrate my husband's birthday. No problem with gluten free. Thanks very much.

We had the promotional champagne afternoon tea and it was truly spectacular. The staff were friendly and helpful, the food outstanding and it was a beautiful setting to sit back and relax. We will definitely be coming back especially if there are more offers like this!

It was ok - the afternoon tea arrived at 1430 and not the 1400 we had booked, had to ask twice for the coffee to arrive and it was already luke warm. Nice to get a box to takeaway what we couldn't eat though.

Such a beautiful place. We visited for champagne afternoon tea on a 2 for 1 offer. Great value for money. A whole pot of tea and coffee per person! A really lovely atmosphere despite the weather being appalling that day.

The food and drink were as good as ever but the lounge bar seemed understaffed for the afternoon tea session. Staff were unavailable for long periods and at one stage just one person seemed to be both preparing the tea and serving it. Please note that this is not a criticism of the staff (they were working very hard), just a feeling that more staff were needed to offer a quality service.

Having received a confirmation email we then received a reminder email with a different (and not practical) time a few days before the event. This was sorted and our “booked” time was honoured. Service was average (slow) our afternoon tea arrived but we still had to ask for milk as that was missing! We also had to box our own leftovers to take home. Overall quite disappointing for the price paid even on an offer deal!

Lovely afternoon tea with excellent service. Only negative was that staff were coming through the lounge with vacuum cleaners and a couple of workman, understand jobs have to be done but not what I want to see as I am enjoying the ambiance of the lounge bar. Despite that look forward to my next visit.

Our first visit to this hotel, although we have been to other Hand Picked Hotels. Location and building are fantastic and we will definitely be considering an overnight stay in the future.

Food was excellent and cakes had incredible flavours. Scones super light and everyone commented on how good they were. Disappointing not to be given different flavour jams (strawberry only). We were a group of 6 and only received two scoops of clotted cream so had to ask for more. Unfortunately, this took ages to arrive and people had started on cakes. There was only one server and one bar staff on duty, so service lacked attention. Rather than regular checks, we only saw them once after our food was delivered and then had numerous requests for them water, milk, cream, jam. We were given neat boxes to take left over food away. These held lots of food which was great. It would’ve been nice to be provided with containers to hold cream - but the bar staff rinsed out the jam jars so we used those. The room was really warm but great view of the estate. Furniture and decor was well presented and very clean. A wedding was talking place in the hotel and there were large numbers of people walking through the lounge bar throughout the two hours we were there. Next time I’d request a table to the edge of the room as these were quieter areas. Afternoon tea prices are higher than other local hotels but the quality of food was very good. I don’t think the service we received was worth 10% service charge that was automatically added to our bill.

Came for afternoon tea with my friend and it was fabulous!! The staff were brilliant and very attentive and nothing was to much trouble! The only issue was the price as I booked on a 2 for 1 offer and they had no information on this , it was only sorted out when I showed them an email with a booking reference on it, could have been quite embarrassing if I didn't have this! Well worth the price though and would love to have more of these deals! Looking forward to the next one!

A really wonderful afternoon tea in the most beautiful setting. 1st class sandwiches, scones and cakes with a good selection of teas. My only gripe was a lack of staff when we arrived to seat us, so I had to wander the corridors to find someone. I would recommend this experience.
