The Christmas afternoon tea is amazing definitely the best in the area and very reasonably priced given the quality of the food and luxurious surroundings and very attentive staff

We had a wonderful afternoon tea celebrating our friends 70th birthday. Lovely waitress who couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful. The food was gorgeous and plentiful and although the restaurant was very busy , the service was first class. Beautiful decorations for Xmas and overall a very lovely place to go.

My only complaint is the restriction placed when booking that the table is required back by a certain time. In general the table would be returned by the stipulated time, however, it is pressurising and unprofessional to place these restrictions. I queried this with your Restaurant Manager and he advised that this is added by the computer when booking and is not valid. if it's not valid then don't do it. Furthermore, many hotels in London that offer Afternoon Tea do not pressure their guests for the table's return. Shame really as everything else was excellent.

Gone to the Roslin plebtly of times normally good experience . Phoned up to book Christmas afternoon tea for the girls and requested no sauce in my sandwiches then my friend phoned through before to confirm no sauces then before we got the afternoon tea told the lady again didn’t want any sauces in my sandwiches then the sandwiches came out with sauce in ! Sent them back to then second time get it wrong had no stuffing in the turkey sandwiches . Very frustrating after telling peolple three times the same thing then getting it wrong twice after ! They was apologetic and knocked service charge off but still very disappointed as did make very clear and did ruin the afternoon .

Lovely setting. Staff were attentive but felt a little rushed. As soon as we sat down we were asked if we wanted tea or coffee. We hadn’t even had a chance to remove our coats or look at a menu! Same as when we were given the bill. Waitress stood over us as we got our purses / credit cards out our handbags!

Booked a Prosecco tea, there was no Prosecco also no jam and cream for the scones! There was also no choice of tea it was English breakfast or coffee. Last time we came we were offered a selection....
