Excellent - lovely service - polite - nice food - very welcoming - highly recommend
I thought that the afternoon tea was reasonably good, but I’m sure it was not worth £25 per person, plus £7 service charge on top. I’ve had much better for a lot less. The service was very good couldn’t knock that at all very attentive waiter and the location was more than fine for us, having eaten there for other meals during the weekend. Better sandwiches with more filling on good brown or wholemeal bread. One less cake per person to compensate, the cakes we’re actually pretty good. One bigger scone each the small scones were too dry, give a choice of fruit or plain on ordering. Quality Jam loose in a separate little pot and please more of it, no room for small portions at this price. My biggest negative was the small portion of cream, not enough for two we had to be careful not to run out and cheap whipped cream, a cream tea has got to have clotted cream or at leased the choice at this price point. I enjoyed my weekend at the hotel and gave you a excellent review including our breakfasts in the rise which was much better value. I would unfortunately give the cream tea experience only five out of ten (excluding service which was nine out of ten) therefore although I will visit the hotel again in a flash I will not be having cream tea unless things change either with value or quality or both.
Food was fantastic Petit fours weren’t anywhere near as good as the main meal
Lovely hotel and the staff were very attentive however for afternoon tea I have had a lot better for the price. Sandwiches were not very inspiring and the cake selection was a bit forgettable. Scones were lovely though
We had a beautiful afternoon tea, outstanding. Thank you.
Service was excellent, we weren't hugely impressed either with the sandwiches or cake selection though.
Love the open kitchen, watching the chefs at work. Waiting staff all very friendly but professional. The food was excellent and great vfm, as was the wine. Would recommend.
We were made to feel like special guests on our visit. Each member of staff was helpful and friendly. The food was delicious and we will definitely be back
Lovely atmosphere, attentive staff and delicious food.
Very good experience
Great staff. Were very good with the elderly in our party.
Very helpful staff in beautiful surroundings. Food at the tea was plain but filling. We couldn’t eat all the cake! Tea and coffee was plentiful. I would recommend booking again.
Wonderful service and food!
3 star food and service at 5 star prices!! The afternoon tea at The Rise compares unfavourably with what you receive at, say, a London 5 start hotel.
Outstanding made stay extra special.
Outstanding. Lovely staff. Excellent setting. Amazing food.
Really really disappointing service poor wasn’t asked how our meal was information regarding food was poor. Really not Ebay we expected much better meal and service at the ivy or Bettys very disappointing
Loved it! I made a mistake with my booking and requested the wrong date. Wasn’t a problem, I called and they told me to come down. Me and my wife were so impressed by the quality of the afternoon tea and the service. We felt a little underdressed because the hotel is immaculate but we weren’t made to feel unwelcome. This was the best afternoon tea we have ever had and if we ever re visit York it will be first on our list. Thank you so much!
When we asked for a salmon sandwich to be exchanged for an egg, the waiter told us, in quite a pretentious manner, that we didn’t order a vegetarian option so it probably wouldn’t be possible and if it it was, then it would take some time. The sandwiches were dry and lacked much filling. When we asked for a out of hot water for the tea, it took a long time to come, despite that fact that there was only two other tables in the restaurant. The atmosphere was non existent. Overall, a very disappointing experience. We will not be visiting again.
Fantastic service and sabir went the extra mile to ensure we had an enjoyable afternoon. He is a real credit to your hotel
Very nice touch with the birthday card much appreciated, although plenty of tea available in a tea pot with just a small cup of coffee which we had to distract the waiter to have topped up, would have been a nicer touch to have a coffee pot as well as the teapot, everything else was great.
We had a working lunch and everything was spot on. Thanks.
A dismal experience. We tried to order hit chocolate for the 4 children and were told you had run out - although when I complained later on 4 appeared. The sandwiches took over an hour to arrive and again, only after complaining to the manager on duty. Our waitress seemed to be in a world of her own and oblivious to how long we had been waiting. When the food arrived it was pretty basic stuff - nothing special at all. The cakes lacked any flavour in most cases. All in all a huge disappointment and I would advise anyone who asks me to avoid the place. A huge waste of money and time in what was meant to be a celebration of my mother’s 84th birthday.
Lovely setting staff all very helpful food was amazing
Brilliant afternoon tea - great service and the setting gives the experience a real sense of occasion. Thank you. Not the first time we have visited and won't be the last.
