We loved our afternoon yesterday and very pleased managed to squeeze in before everything shut down. All the staff were amazing and our waiter for fantastic. The food was delicious, plus the ambience in the room was good despite the circumstances. I look forward to coming back when you reopen.

Extremely impressed with the service and the quality of the food. The chef had obviously put a lot of thought to into making the whole experience so enjoyable. Hendricks and tonic in teapot, drinking from tea cups. Left overs sent to our room. Excellent.

Top notch. Great food and excellent service. Our waiter couldn't have been more helpful. I have been twice before a little while ago but now it has been made even better in the White Rose Lounge. The best place for afternoon tea in York by a mile.

I would of liked to have been told when I ordered another gin that I would be paying for it. It was a bit of surprise when I had to pay. Other than that the whole experience was great and the staff were lovely. Decor in the Lounge was a bit modern for me. I was expecting a more traditional feel. Overall though a lovely afternoon! Food was amazing!

Outstanding service and quality of facilities and food. Treated very well, staff were polite and attentive. Afternoon tea was one of the beat I’ve ever had, especially the detail and taste of the sweet elements. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting York!

Let me begin by saying we could not fault the level of service we received, nor the food.We have previously been twice for afternoon tea and always been delighted but were so disappointed this time; especially as this was booked for a special birthday for me and had been a present from a friend. We did not feel at all that the white Rose Lounge was an appropriate room for a hotel of this standard to be hosting afternoon tea. We were placed near the drinks machines so had a constant stream of staff using the noisy machines, as well as having the noise of the fridges and looking at a service area. Also, the fact that one area had computers in it, whilst they were not in use at the time they hardly added to the ambience of a relaxing afternoon tea experience. I’m afraid we were both very disappointed by the experience and would not return again.

Gentleman serving us was not very attentive. Didn’t explain what the dishes were on arrival. Asked for cakes to be boxed up, which took him 20 minutes to complete. Know this isn’t standard service as other staff members were more attentive to those around us. Probably wouldn’t return due to this poor service, especially for an afternoon tea.

Enjoyed the afternoon tea menu which offers a good mix of both traditional and more inventive flavours. Reassuring attention to specialist diets. And what a lovely waiter who looked after us so attentively.

The amuse bouche was the best part of the afternoon tea! We thoroughly enjoyed the soup and the mini Yorkshire pudding. The desserts could have been smaller portions as we were quite full up by then and couldn't manage to eat them all.

My husband and had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon tea. The staff that served us were very efficient and made us feel that nothing was too much trouble. We couldn't have been treated better. My only criticism would be that one more sandwich and one less cake would have suited us better but that is only personal taste. The surroundings were most fitting for the type of food we had. Thank you.
