Love it here.
Wonderful, friendly staff. My mother in law and I wanted a special lunch but we had to have my toddler with me. I appreciated their flexibility with this, as well as allowing my toddler to eat food from home, as It wasn’t a special high tea for him! I have already recommended Zealong to some mum friends because of this alone
Absolutely beautiful in every way!!
A great experience, would definately return for another special occasion.
We have been to Zealong tea house many times, ever since you guys first opened. The Tea house truly has the best scenery however I gave three starts to “Atmosphere “ purely because of the flies issues. We went once last year and noticed the large amount of flies. This month we went again and we sat outside of the tea house and had the fly fan on. However it still doesn’t stop the large amount of flies come and go. Flies are so annoying and none hygienic. It is not what I expect to see in a high end tea house/restaurant.
first time here ...we were pleasantly surprised ...will definitely visit again
Our family had an enjoyable family lunch last Sunday to celebrate Warwick’s 80th birthday. I would like to point out however, that I thought your mobility consideration for Warwick in a wheelchair was not up to the standard that should be given in a venue such as yours. How many people in wheelchairs do you suggest they be lifted down your restaurant steps by the care giver and one staff member ( people in wheelchairs are very heavy) Also the way out round the side wasn’t easy either, having to shift your little tea tables then a garden hose that had been left on the pathway to the gate. Surely if you are aware that a person in a wheelchair is to be your guest it should be your responsibility to make sure the access is easy up to standard. Apart from the access disability issue we enjoyed our lunch and venue, but feel that in the future you need to offer more consideration to those with disabilities. Sincerely Aitken family
Great fo be able to walk around & up to the main building afterwards
This is the second time I have been to your establishment in past 4 months and on both occasions it was felt that there were not enough staff serving tables in comparison to no of people at tables. It appeared fully booked both times and each time we had to attract waitresses attention to get any attention drinks were only offered once at time of taking order. No follow on request for drinks by waitresses. Delivery of meals was very slow yet couldn’t fault meal once they arrived.
Very nice establishment with a great atmosphere. Unfortunately we appeared to have one of the worst servers. Our waitress did not introduce herself or make any effort to explain the teas or how the menu works. Our tea arrived and some of our guests had to ask 4 times for milk, eventually this was delivered 15 minutes after the rest of the drinks, at which point the tea was cold. The food was okay, but unfortunately our guests were disappointed that they did not know what they were eating as there were no labels and our waitress never returned to ask. After delivering the food we never saw our waitress again, or were asked if we required any thing else. For the price paid, the service could be compared to as bad as a fast food place.
Highly recommend the High Tea it was an amazing experience.
The High Tea was superb.
Lovely setting. Relaxed and classy atmosphere. Better with some lovely background music outside. Staff lovely and helpful. One thing that I'm not a fan of is the multiple times I've been asked for feedback. Comment cards at the table. Plus 3 of the staff looking after us mentioning to us to please leave feedback then emails reminding to leave feedback. That is putting a negative memory of the whole experience.
Food was delicious although we had only just finished our entree when our main came out, which was too fast. Service was very good but the flies were awful maybe you could put the fly windmills on every table not just those who asked. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and the setting is beautiful.
Good atmosphere, average food but very unpleasant service. We waited for more than 40 minutes for our high tea sets. The reason being “VIP guests are prioritized” which I do understand but was again highly disappointed when I noticed guests that arrived after us got served first. The waitress that served us seemed poorly trained. She was polite but not attentive - our order was put in late, she even came asking why our food still hasn’t been served? (how would we know when she took the order), milk for tea was forgotten so we had to ask another staff. Very disappointing. Never coming back and certainly not recommended.
Another wonderful experience. Service was exceptional and food was absolutely superb
Stunning experience. High Tea amazing.
Absolutely loved it, stunning surroundings, great service and amazing food! Highly recommend the high tea!
Great place, great service, great food.
Great service & we all loved everything on the high tea plate.
Our hostess, Sara, was great! Good personality and knowledgeable.
Great High Tea dining experience, and tranquil atmosphere so early in the morning. Service by staff was excellent, Zoann really made us feel welcome and walked us through every step of the way. The deconstructed cheesecake was probably the only dish that didn't sit too well with me but other options were all such a treat! Will be back for sure, thank you zealong team for making the day great!
Excellent high tea
i'm glad that i chose Zealong for my birthday lunch,.my family had a great time and enjoyed it so much from the view food drinks and service. Thank you for the beautiful experience!
The food was not great. very bland below average and my friend who had the market fish of the day had food poisoning and was sick all night won’t be going back. Have been there before and had a lovely meal
