It was a lovely experience to start our spa break the service was excellent and the staff very pleasant and chatty
There were 8 of us, originally booked for 9 however my sister became ill and was admitted to hospital the day before our visit. The staff were so helpful, and went as far as to make up an afternoon tea for my sister that we could take away. They prepared it fresh on the morning of check out and wrapped it in foil in the shape of swans! It was such a lovely touch, we felt like we had really been looked after and were able to take something back for her. The afternoon tea was tasty and plentiful, gorgeous prosecco! (Should have asked what that was!) You have very attentive staff who go out of their way to make sure everything is just right! Thank you so much.
The sandwich bites were delicious and more of these would be appreciated. However it was afternoon tea which is all about the sweet treats. Everything was beautifully presented and the waitress very quickly brought freshly warmed scones for us after we pointed out that the ones served were a little hard. The coffe was fresh and hot and the complementary fizz was much appreciated.
A wonderful afternoon,service was brilliant,staff really looked after us,left without leaving a well deserved tip,so sorry but will be back soon to make it up to you👍🏻💕
The afternoon tea was lovely and the waitres was very friendly and provided exceptional service. It was a lovely treat with the girls.
Really good value as added it on to an overnight stay on special offer but I would be equally happy to pay full price. Plenty of choice, good selection & really filling & the glass of fizz is a nice touch. For me I would choose a few more savoury options in favour of the amount of sweet but that's just my preference & we even left some as there was so much so no complaints from me. Really good value & the setting overlooking the golf course & the service were both lovely.
Staff were friendly but obviously not trained. Servingvfrom rhe wrong sides, plonking things down. Giving you spoons that did not reach bottom of shot glass desserts. Clearing things from table before all diners had finished.
Burger in restaurant was awful
The young man who waited on us yesterday is a credit to you. I didn’t catch his name. But he went over and beyond. Even the two ladies I took commented how lovely he was for such a young person. So sorry I’ve forgot his name. Our afternoon tea was Tuesday 8th jan at 12.30pm. Maybe you can check who was working then. Afternoon tea was outstanding as alway.
Excellent service and great value for money. Would definitely book again.
Very well presented
Lovely food. great service.
The afternoon tea was nice, however the cutlery didn't look clean and it wasn't as nice as the first time I came, the food was also dry which was disappointing.
Sandwiches and cake were dry like they had been pre made earlier in the day. Had to go and find a staff member for some milk to go with our tea. Staff were friendly enough.
Enjoyed a very relaxing afternoon tea looking out over the golf course with a beautiful christmas setting and atmosphere in the restaurant. Service was outstanding and the food was well presented.
Lovely afternoon tea- good selection and well presented. Very attentive and friendly staff
Upon booking I was told as it was for a special aniversary if there was a spare room I would be upgraded for free and the booker put a note on to say to upgrade to a new loft room for free. Before I arrived I also emailed asking if you could put a special Happy anniversary message in our room and with our afternoon tea and I recieved a reply saying all notes were still on the booking and also they would put a special note for us. When I arrived there was no note with afternoon tea and it was a special surprise for my partner but when checking in I was told I would have to pay £25 to upgrade to a loft room. That was a surprise to me! Ruined the surprise for my partner also. I was then upgraded to another room but not a loft room even after I was told there was one free. False promises and bad customer service. There was also no Happy anniversary message in our room :( not the best experience
Great value for Money, delicious well prepared food, informative waiter service
When we arrived we were seated. Tea and coffee was brought over, we only had 1 cracker on the table, had to ask for more. Afternoon tea came a while later, we asked for 2 vegetarian ones and no salmon but this wasn’t met. The waitress was quick enough to get extras for us. Service was brilliant. Would have just been nicer if we didn’t have to ask.
Delicious afternoon festive tea
A really enjoyable afternoon tea, the food was delicious and beautifully presented but the service was exceptional. We were made to feel very special by all the staff it really was a special experience and we will be returning soon.
Hotel was very accommodating - I arrived nearly an hour early and they managed to change my booking so that I didn't have to wait around. Presentation of food was lovely, and the food itself was beyond gorgeous! Very pleasant views too, watching the golfers and the world go by :)
My friend and I had a lovely 'afternoon tea' experience in your lovely restaurant, and couldn't fault anything. The staff were warm, friendly, polite and helpful. The food was delicious, and beautifully presented.We didn't feel rushed - even though we sat talking for a long time after we had finished eating! We would definitely return - even buy it as a gift experience for someone else! Thank you very much for a lovely afternoon.
Customer service very good. Staff friendly and helpful. Scones were stale and a long hair in a cake had to be changed but the rest of the tea was lovely. Shame really as enjoyed the experience on the whole
I fully recommend the afternoon tea
