About Afternoon Tea
Indulge in one of our mouth-watering afternoon teas in the luxurious surroundings of The Olive Tree Garden Room or historic Manor House.
Afternoon Tea is served Monday to Sunday 1.00pm - 3.00pm
Really disappointing afternoon tea. Quality of food was poor, something you would not expect when booking at the Celtic manor. When the food was brought out, the sandwiches were half soggy/dry as if they had been defrosted. I raised this with the manager in the restaurant as the sandwiches were somewhat inedible and was advised that all the food is made in bulk and stacked and refrigerated, however he would bring a plate of fresh sandwiches. Although to our disappointment the sandwiches came out exactly the same, the ends were freezing cold and middle soggy. They were horrible so we didn’t eat them. Also, all the sweet treats were somewhat disappointing. With the amount you pay for this, you would expect high quality fresh products. I’ve been to several afternoon teas in other establishments and this was the worst by far! I would definitely not recommend and will not be returning. What a complete waste of money and service from the manager. This was booked as a treat for myself and my mother and feel completely let down.
Everything was perfect, usually get a free glass of bubbly when celebrating our anniversary but didn't this year. Only downside to a fantastic afternoon tea
Lovely service, delicious cakes and tea! I would have liked more savoury options but overall really lovely experience and all staff were fantastic and friendly!
Very disappointed with the quality of the food, the sandwiches were very nice but the cakes were very sickly and not very nice at all. The scones were very dry and we couldn’t eat them. Very sad as have had an afternoon tea previously which was very nice. The waiting team were very good.
We would have preferred more savoury, although the sweet treats were a delight. Staff were very friendly and helpful,
Absolutely fantastic. My son really enjoyed is treat
The setting was absolutely beautiful however i would have preferred a choice of a savoury or sweet selection Considering how quiet it was, service was quite slow, Would have liked more opportunity to have coffee refreshed without having to look for the staff constantly.
Everything was lovely except the cream for the scones which looked like it had been grated and we could not spread it. Not seen cream like this before and didn’t like it.
Obviously due to covid restrictions atmosphere is hard to rate. But the i was impressed with the safety measures put in place and felt safe at all times. The staff were also lovely so we had a lovely time in general. However, the food being one of the reasons we went really let it down. As someone who loves an afternoon tea I was really disappointed. The food lacked much flavour and the alcohol cakes weren’t very nice. Too little on offer and the sandwiches a little hard. In saying that, the scones were delicious which was great. A friend of mine had dietary requirements which were adhered too, however these options could be improved also as they were bland and stodgy. She was given a gluten free, vegan alternative when she was not gluten free or a vegan, just could not eat fish or have alcohol due to being pregnant. We would perhaps try again if the menu was different
fabulous food and service
Excellent, lovely afternoon tea, good choice of sandwiches and cakes
Last minute booking after a spa experience. Lovely food served in a great and safe environment
Great staff....attentive, polite, friendly and courteous. Loved the selection of sandwiches and cakes. Nice selection of tea, topped off with a couple of glasses of prosecco made it a perfect afternoon to end our trip round Wales before heading home.
ALL staff were friendly and helpful. Afternoon Tea was delightful and delicious - the sweet treats were a different take on mini cakes but made the tea a touch more interesting whilst still thorough enjoyable. Our first visit to Celtic Manor and the venue was great. Would certainly go again!!
We think that overall this is poor value. We were disappointed with the soggy sandwiches and slimey cakes. One of us had vegetarian sandwiches which seemed to be mainly tomatoe. We weren't told what the veg option was so we've no idea what we ate. We weren't offered a top up on hot drinks. The cream and jam in plastic little dishes made the experience feel cheap. Its all in the detail and this whole tea just felt very stingy. Not what we expected from a 5* hotel.
Special afternoon out.look forward to visiting again
Lovely Afternoon tea. Service was brilliant
Amazing food and service, cannot wait to come back again
Excellent service, catered to my allergy needs, wonderful surroundings, will definitely be returning
A very pleasant Afternoon Tea served impeccably by the staff and the food itself was delicious, unfortunately due to the Corona virus there were very few people so it lacked atmosphere.
Visited during Covid19 pandemic so not much atmosphere but not the fault of the hotel.
Thoroughly enjoyed but would have like a little more savoury sandwiches or at least been offered them. Staff were very attentive and professional as youd expect at the CM.
Even though we are in strange times I did feel that the staff could have been more pleasant. This would have made the experience more special. Using the app to order needs some fine tweaking.
Food was lovely....to look at and to eat!! Service was also perfect. Will definitely recommend your afternoon tea to others.
