Very friendly helpful barman however disappointed with the waiting staff. Afternoon tea was just put on table with no explanation of what was on it (previous visits they have explained). Also to note two vegetarians in our party and both of the vegatarian selections were put on serving stand however they were sat at opposite ends of table making it hard to reach. The food however was lovely as always.
We loved our visit to the hotel and spa. Staff couldn’t have been any nicer and the afternoon tea was beautiful.
Worst coeliac afternoon tea my wife has ever had. Sandwiches dry, virtually no filling. Poor presentation just cut in half. Complained and brought more but not very good. My scones were over cooked and very dry. Was my wife's birthday and thought The Grand would be very special, how wrong was I. Wish we had gone to Betty''s.
We really enjoyed the experience - it was my toddlers first afternoon tea and there were many aspects of it that were enjoyable and memorable for us. The jelly in the tea cup for the children was one of these! She absolutely loved being a ‘Big Little lady’. It was also refreshing to have her afternoon tea come out at the same time as ours. Too often do places serve the adults first then the children! Not ideal for the hungry, impatient little ones or the parents who then need to ‘sort out,’ (i.e. cut up etc) their little ones food whilst their meal sits there. The following are by no means a criticism but would definitely make the experience more ‘wow’ and are said as a mum with a 2-3 year old... We booked our afternoon tea online, and stated which options we wanted (2 vegetarian, 1 children’s afternoon tea) this was acknowledged in a lovely personalised email from your staff. When we arrived, we were given menus and asked what we’d like... it would have been brilliant if you’d acknowledged that you knew our order and then the afternoon teas could have been ready (or nearly ready, I appreciate it is fresh) for us. I feel that this little ‘re-ordering’ formality could have been avoided. As a result, we then had to wait 35 minutes for the food to come out whilst placating a hungry, restless toddler. The children’s afternoon tea was advertised as having an activity with it, to keep them entertained. We weren’t offered this, and it was only on our way out that I spotted the table with colouring activities. It would have been very much welcomed to have this highlighted to us as we sat down. The waitress (Harriet) brought my toddler her apple juice in a tall (heavy) cut glass full of (heavy) ice. Lovely for older children but very appealing yet breakable for a younger child - luckily I had a plastic alternative with me to pour it into. I would definitely come back but with a few small tweaks if I were to bring my children with me. With minor changes, I feel that the children’s afternoon tea could really be made much more appropriate for them and it’s name, and less stressful for parents without detracting from the special experience. Many thanks again - I hope my feedback is taken as it was intended and not as a criticism, I’ll reiterate that the food was lovely and the ambience matched this. Many thanks.
Amazing night at The Rise! The food was gorgeous. Exceeded my expectations. Highly recommend.
Food was delicious and very nicely presented. Four out of five for service as we had to chase our dessert and coffee order but otherwise a very nice meal. Would recommend.
Waited approximately 45 minutes from placing our order to find out that our starter was unavailable and we needed to re-order. Food was generally very good once it arrived. Generally, service was good other than the issue with the starter.
Lovely service and delicious food, thank you. A really nice touch was the happy birthday themed table!
A lovely evening. Pre meal cocktails in the 1906 bar followed by first class food and service for our delayed valentine celebration
Really enjoyable evening - staff in both the restaurant and bar were friendly and attentive. We had a really nice time. Well done everyone!
Have eaten with you before and found you most impressive, therefore, for my wife's birthday, we came from Ilkley specifically and solely to enjoy yur sophisticated tranquil atmosphere. However this time, I presume because our reservation was at 12:00 so quite early, there was a constant clatter of things being placed in the kitchen, and members of staff wandering in and out of the kitchen area in general, and sometimes quite loud conversation, dressed in their outside coats anoraks etc, which did not sit well with the champagne High Tea we were trying to enjoy. An honest statement would be that the background did not spoil the event, but most certainly detracted from it.
It was a 70th birthday meal with a mixture of adults, teenagers, and younger children. The food was very good, the service efficient and friendly. It was a lovely evening.
Had a lovely afternoon!
I enjoyed the afternoon tea experience, the staff were friendly and helpful and we felt well looked after. The food was delicious if a tad expensive when service charge is added. I would come back for another visit, maybe with a spa visit also.
Had a wonderful afternoon tea for my friends birthday treat. The staff couldn’t do more for us, they had made the afternoon very special and with the added extras a candle, card and bits on the table the day was made extra special. The food was amazing and the staff were welcoming and friendly. Price was correct for the exceptional service and quality of the food. Would fully recommend
Lovely food and great service in a pleasant restaurant, although surprised you found the need for your maintainsnce team to start paint a wall just feet from the table as the restaurant opened? Surely this could have and should have been done while the restaurant was closed? This had a huge overall impact on the visit I am afraid to say.
There were quite a few different drinks missing on the menu. The staff were all very nice.
Hendrick's afternoon tea - lovely drink and food. Sweets (top layer) were not great. There was not much atmosphere as there were not many others there at the time. Service was good for the majority however got slow as two more parties arrived. It took a while for us to be able to pay our bill.
Brilliant attentive staff and beautiful hotel with gorgeous food at the restaurant!!
The staff had no idea what was going on, and the manager was despairing at their inability to perform basic tasks. We were given the wrong drinks, meat instead of vegetarian sandwiches, etc. The food was mediocre, although the sandwiches had obviously been kept in the fridge rather than freshly made. And then we were told they'd run out of jam when we asked for more. Hot chocolate was disappointing. Nice scones though. I can't really comment on value for money as I was given a voucher so we didn't really have much to lose, but I would have been much more disappointed if I had paid the £50 myself. Overall, we booked the afternoon tea for some quality time together, but the painful service was distracting and the food didn't make up for it. As we live in York, I was hoping it could become a regular treat and I would be able to recommend it to colleagues, but I can't. I hope the manager, who seemed friendly and good at his job, finds a way to improve things.
Food was absolutely beautiful and my daughter was celebrating her 11th Birthday and had a wonderful time. All the staff were fantastic!
We had the Sparkling Afternoon Tea for a special birthday and had a lovely time. The food and drinks were excellent and the service in the restaurant very good. We had a great time overall but it was a shame that we weren't made to feel so welcome after the Tea when we wanted to get a last drink in the lounge. When no seats were available, we were happy to sit in the corridor area to wait, however the staff seemed quite bothered by this as there wasnt really enough space for 3 if us to sit together. We ended up moving on as we got the impression we were in the way - shame as our experience in the restaurant was great. On the upside, we ended up finding a great little pub round the corner to finish our celebration!
Lovely atmosphere here. The staff are all extra lovely and made us feel very well taken care of. The food is also lovely, if I had to critique I would say I'd have liked a couple more sandwiches as there is a lot more sweet stuff compared with savoury but I did leave feeling full so cannot really complain!
Staff very polite and helpful.
lovely food wife had tea to drink and I had coffee to drink which I thought was a bit on the weak side
