Afternoon tea for my Mothers' birthday. Everything was delicious and the staff made us feel really special. Thank you.
Excellent service, very attentive staff who went out of their way to make our experience as pleasurable as possible. It was worth the trip from Newcastle!
Wonderful food, fantastic singer who we weren't expecting. The only disappointment was the inattentive service, there's a relaxed atmosphere, but we had to ask for drinks, wine and desserts.
Lovely afternoon. Great service and tea. Would like the option to have a little more savoury items, maybe cheese scones instead of sweet as don't have massive sweet tooth but that's personal taste . would recommend to all as a nice relaxed experience .
Standard of service was v basic. Food was good. Wine list disappointing
We were truly made to feel special on our visit to The Rise. The staff couldn't do enough to attend our every need. We ordered the Hendicks afternoon tea as a treat for my mother in laws 60th birthday (a long time G&T lover) and it didn't disappoint. The food was lovely and pouring our G&T from teapots was a very lovely and quirky touch. We definitely plan on returning!
Lovely your new restaurant & the staff were very attentive. Great afternoon tea I look forward to my next visit.
Could not fault the standard and quality of the food, it was excellant. However, the portions were very small. Not impressed with the 12.5% Service Charge.I pay for the meal, that is served by your employees, so why the Service Charge.?
We had the prosecco deal which made it excellent value. The food and service was amazing. The only reason for the one less star for atmosphere is that it was quite quiet which I'm sure will change once the restaurant is more established and especially if this deal stays on.
I have been to The Grand several times for afternoon tea but this was the first time we were seated in the main restaurant (rather in the traditional rooms at the bottom of the hallway). The food was very good and we enjoyed the selection, however the atmosphere was not nearly as nice and the service seems to have suffered as a result of the change. On several occasions we were actively looking for a member of staff to order extra drinks and ask for the bill. I would recommend The Rise to friends, but feel the move from the more traditional setting is a shame and makes it stand out less against other afternoon tea restaurants.
Fantastic service. Staff were incredibly friendly. Perfect experience from start to finish.
The churros whereto sweet.
We had a lovely time
Would have preferred a better selection of sandwiches even if at the expense of fewer cakes. Staff were however invariably courteous hitting the right note when checking level of service provided without being intrusive.
Service was excellent however the food presented, whilst looking lovely really was not worth the money. At essentially £2.50 per food item (tea and coffee excluded) it was sub par at best... I booked for my girlfriends birthday because she liked the look of the interior of the hotel, and she was left feeling deflated and upset by the actual products served... we didn't say anything at the time as the waitress was lovely and deserved her tip however I couldn't hand on heart recommend your hotel for afternoon tea to anyone and don't wish to return myself. The sandwiches, after advising we didn't like smoked salmon, arrived with smoked salmon... the pastrami on rye was dry and disappointing and the quiche was soggy, good pastry though. The sausage roll was sweet (understandable considering ingredients) but it wasnt nice to eat... The scones were lovely, however two small scones didn't make up for it. The cakes we decided to take home however they ended up in the bin outside as my girlfriend didn't want to offend by not taking them... All round disappointing. Tea and coffee was nice though 😔
Outstanding "high tea" experience. Thank you so much for a delightful afternoon where attention to detail was obvious, from the booking to the service to the food, etc.
Very attentive and super friendly staff.
Exccellent meal but when it came to mains we were all a little disppointed at the small portions. A little more would be better.
Second visit for afternoon tea and will return. I met with ex-colleagues and the venue is brilliant because you are not rushed and have time to relax and catch up with each other. Handy for the Railway station and Park and Ride stops.
Love the new restaurant. Better atmosphere than the previous, although (Sunday afternoon tea) the live band, whilst welcomed and fun, were quite loud making conversation difficult. Food was good, and more tea was offered which was nice. Service was a bit over the top, I think perhaps a new member of staff who was rather over eager! Still, would definitely recommend.
I believe our waitress was called Harriet, she was an asset to your restaurant and looked after us very well
Really enjoyed afternoon tea with friends. Very accommodating of dietary requirements and also of us taking a baby with us. Would certainly recommend and will be returning.
It was not as nice having afternoon tea in a bar area
Excellent catering for my mother with high-quality gluten-free options for her coeliac disease.
