one of my party was gluten intollerant and with other allergies, I phoned ahead to make sure that a gf high tea was available and was assured it was and would i send thru a booking online outlining this - which I did. on arrival discussed this with the waitress and was told no that is incorrect there is no high tea available for gluten free, yet the email i showed said yes. this was rather embarrasing and didnt get much better, menu sorted they brought out an item that could have turned bad, my guest is allergic to tapioca, they took it away and replaced it but there were still remnants of tapioca on the glass. at thie point we gave up and left, complained at the desk where there was no charge for the GF muck up. Totally unacceptable for an organisation like yours that strives n good customer service. We will not return
Definitely will not be back, service was terrible and food was average.
Amazing high tea experience!! Wonderful flavours, great value for money, left feeling very satisfied. Thankyou!
Was an absolute delight having hightea at Zealong Tea House. Took my mum here for early Mothers Day outting. We were both blown away by the location , the scenary, and the food was exceptional. We will definitely be back soon with rest of the family to make more memories. Hopefully the chocolate orange desert is still on the menu for the high tea sooo yum. Beyond recommend :)
Lovely setting and informed and attentive staff. Food thoughtfully prepared. Only blemish was a large wad of paper packaging in the pulled jackfruit slider. Would certainly go again.
Kersten, Sarah and team took great care of us.
Wish there were more stars to mark. It was a wonderful experience again. A special thank you to the young man who looked after us. We’re looking forward to returning real soon.
Food was not as good as before. Tiny as well
Good environment, but if the waiter’s hands stop shaking when they serve tea, it would be much more better. I hope there won't be so many flies outdoor next time.
Staff were lovely, tea was excellent. Went for high tea and they were kind enough to swap one of the items out as I didn’t like the flavour. Would visit again :)
Nice place to come for a high tea or even a light lunch. Only recommendation I would put forward is for someone to be able to tell me what the name of the white camellias are by the entrance way to the shop. It appeared that the gardener didn't know what type of camellia they were even.
Amazing service and food at the restaurant. Unfortunately not the same at the retail outlet which was rude and unfriendly.
Cool place to relax with hot tea on an Autumn day.
Right from the first point of contact with staff when making my reservation, I was impressed. I had my elderly parents with me and upon arrival everyone was helpful. Exceptional customer service, food and atmosphere.
Very relaxing and super setting for high tea.
We had the high tea which was as ok but have you considered a traditional high tea as an option? Sandwiches and scones with jam and cream. My mother was very disappointed with the food.
Such an enjoyable lunch, delicious food and lovely surroundings
not as good as it was, but still a pleasant experience.
Love coming here, food and tea sooooo good!
Little bit slow in getting service but once we did service was great
great place, great service, great food
Lovely afternoon at the Teahouse beautiful setting
Excellent food. Steak knives with the steaks would have been handy. Had to get the attention of waiting staff a couple of times to get service. Delicious tea. Rather an expensive lunch but worth it for our 55th wedding anniversary.
High tea was a great experience. Lovely food, service and atmosphere.
A fantastic experience! Would highly recommend the tour followed by a High Tea
