Beautiful setting, lovely looking out over the gardens.
Took my mum for afternoon tea to celebrate her 85th birthday. Lovely venue, in conservatory overlooking the garden/courtyard. We had the champagne afternoon tea - sandwiches were very dainty (4 kinds). Scone with jam, lemon curd and clotted cream were just the right size to allow room for cake. Only criticism would be that we had to ask for the tea after the food had arrived and that a request for tap water was also not followed through without prompting. However, this did not detract from what was a very enjoyable experience and my mum thought it was lovely which was the intention.
A lovely meal served by friendly and efficient staff in beautiful surrounding - slightly pricy for what it was though.
We were on an afternoon tea slot I had booked for my friends birthday. Unfortuneately the english breakfast tea tasted horrible. The waiter did change the milk for me however the taste didn't improve. I ended up drinking herbal teas as it was undrinkable. For somewhere offering an afternoon tea they could benefit from investing in better tea bags as this is what guests will expect. The food was lovely.
We have eaten with you on a number of occasions and will come again! We would like to come and stay for a few days. We would prefer a twin room or to stay in one of your lodges.
Lovely relaxed atmosphere
We had a lovely lunch with friends and family, the food was very good and so was the service. Thank you very much for making my birthday memorable
Excellent food and service. What makes Barnsdale different? Staff is always friendly and many remember your name. This is very important in distinguishing Barnsdale from other establishments. They always make guests feel welcome and that makes it more like coming home than going out. Staff consistency is also a strength for Barnsdale. An example, Carol at reception, greets everyone like a family member when they arrive, then goes the extra mile to make sure everything is working well for every guest. Thanks for a great evening.
