Our tea pot had a badly chipped spout meaning the tea split over the table cloth and made a mess - this shoud have been checked. I bet the teapot is still being used.The table next to ours ordered tea and were given a dirty tea pot! the one that had been used by the previous occupants. Food good, but poor/dirty crockery not accepted at this price (or any price really).

We enjoyed our visit to the Roslin Beach Hotel and had booked an afternoon tea for my boyfriends birthday. The service was good and the restaurant/hotel was scrupulously clean and very well presented. We did notice that other guests being served afternoon tea seemed to have more savoury items than us. They hadn’t gone for the upgraded sparkling afternoon tea as there was no alocohol on the tables. This was disappointing as we both felt that the ratio between sweet and savoury items leant towards there being too many sweet items overall. In terms of pricing, the food was tasty and the deserts were beautifully executed. Howerever, the pricing of £25 per person with an additional 10% service charge (that appeared to be non negotiable) resulted in our tea costing £55 overall. Compared to other establishments offering afternoon tea locally this seems to be a high price.

The food was lovely. It was a birthday present for my 88 year young mum and she thoroughly enjoyed it. She has a sweet tooth and loved all the cakes. Was so pleased she could take home the ones she hadn't eaten.

My 11 year old daughter and I had the best afternoon tea at the Roslin for my birthday celebrations. The service and food could not have been any better and the staff were polite, friendly, helpful and went above and beyond to ensure we had a very special time. Thank you to you all.

Last year it was our 50th Wedding Anniversary and we were given a card for afternoon tea, which we decided to use on Valentine's day this year.....it was very crowded, but the staff made us very welcome, and we had a truly wonderful experience, I had a gluten free tea, whilst my husband had an ordinary tea, and they were both superb.

We had a lovely Afternoon Tea. The sandwiches had the most generous filling that I have ever had and the quality of the them was excellent. We did not want the smoked salmon ones and were offerred extra of the other choices to replace the salmon. My husband then also had a couple of extra Coronation Chicken ones and these were given to him without hesitation. The scones were light and fluffy and the pastries were of such a high standard that they would not look out of place in a top London hotel. Great service too, we were offered top up of our tea on several occasions without having to ask. Amazing value for money. Thank you, Roslin - see you soon!!

The tea could have been hotter on both occasions it was presented and the gratuity was charged without request. However, we would recommend as it was lovely food and we really enjoyed ourselves
