We had a lovely afternoon tea. Delicious [and plentiful] sandwiches, which kept on coming! The cakes and scones were sublime. The service was excellent. Thank you.
A really lovely place for afternoon tea.
What more can I say that i havent said on numerous occasions before.The best afternoon tea possible freshly cut sandwiches to delicious fruit tarts all served up by young Lucy a credit to the hotel.See you very soon.
Great service and lovely venue
we visited your hotel a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it, we asked to be put on mailing list in case we visited in future (we are from Yorkshire). opportunity came up so we booked in with you and was so disappointed. after a long journey from the south there was no tea making facility. you insist on been punctual for meals (which we were) but you informed us it would be ready at 20 minutes after we booked it. (subsequently got e-mail same day to say you changed time!!!) However dinner was delicious and served by tall guy with glasses who was great. The breakfast was a shambles, was in queue for 15 minutes (you had a wedding party in but didn't account for it). There was no orange juice ,no bread for toast, no butter,lukewarm coffee (and was horrible), loose tea with no means to sieve,no mushroom or a whiff of anyone restocking bowl.One female serving a long queue with no management apparently remotely aware of backlog and assisting her. Someone needs to walk the talk!, we were so looking forwards to a repeat of previous stay, it was not to be. Please take comments positively, I very rarely complain or put pen to paper.Regards Terry
Had a very happy tea party. No complaints.
Food was excellent as usual but side order came very late. Staff ok Can recommend
I had an afternoon tea with friends and we all enjoy it
Enjoyable meal followed by an interesting walk around the arboretum with Andrew Beale
Thanks for making my mum's birthday a special ocassion.
Need more choice on menu. Not more items just different meats.
A good evening of entertainment and good food.
Everything was amazing! The waitresses were very attentive. The only thing, that I wasn’t happy about, but, didn’t want to ruin my experience with you.......was that the sandwiches ( bread ) was stale and dry. Also, what would make the atmosphere even better....background music. Otherwise, everything was lovely and I would come again! Thank you all very much.
I appreciated the helpfulness of one of your staff who, on hearing it was our wedding anniversary, arranged for a special treat at the table.
Good and reliable
Sunday lunch was far too much like a traditional ‘carvery’ menu. Every plate (main course) looked identical no matter what you had ordered. Both the lamb and beef were very tender and tasty but overall it was unfortunately very boring.
As I have said on numerous occasions the only place to go for afternoon tea is West Lodge no where else comes anywhere near.Yours Sincerely Mr.S.Gerskin.
Excellent everything. We come fairly regularly and can always be assured of good food and good service. Marilena
Delicious food; excellent, polite, friendly and attentive staff, wonderful piano player. Very enjoyable walk in the stunning grounds after the meal.
Fantastic service from our brilliant waiter and they really made my mum's 80th birthday gathering really special
Vegan menu is much appreciated. Thank you.
