About The Conservatory
Join us for Afternoon Tea at The River Room Conservatory. A magnificent bespoke glass creation that perfectly frames the stunning setting of the cascading River Maine and lush parkland. A most splendid backdrop in which you can enjoy the decadence of a traditional Afternoon Tea.
Afternoon Tea is served daily 12.00-17.30
Fantastic afternoon tea! The food and service was first class and loved how the staff looked after the children by offering them the kids menu which they really enjoyed. Would highly recommend for families and just about everyone else!
Beautiful food as always
Beautiful grounds and hotel itself. 5star service from all staff from front door to conservatory. Afternoon Tea was delicious and great range on offer. Would definitely go back again
Beautiful setting lovely food and excellent service
the service on sunday was impeccable. The lady in charge that afternoon was wonderful, very friendly and welcoming. can not fault the service we recieved at Galgorm
Fab experience in a beautiful setting. Highly recommend!
Thank you for a really special afternoon- perfect!
A great experience from start to finish
The River room is lovely the service is excellent and the afternoon tea delicious I got the dairy free option and thoroughly enjoyed it- the only downside is it is expensive for what you get
Galgorm is my all time favourite for afternoon tea. It never disappoints and everything tastes delicious! My only complaint this time was there was no butter provided for the scones and I had to ask for it twice. There was also no milk on the table for tea which I also had to ask for. There could also be more cream provided as 2 wasnt enough for 3 people.
My friend and i attended every season for afternoon tea for a few years but we hadn't been able to arrange for almost two years until our most recent visit. The Gluten free/Nut free afternoon tea was terrible. I believe the chef has changed. I would have been given beautiful choices that sometimes looked alot better than the normal tea. This time i was given only two fillings of sandwiches instead of the usual four. I was given toast whilst my friend had mini baguette and sauage roll. The sweet choices were three slices of cake that was over baked or possibly defrosted in the microwave for too long to the point it was crispy especially what i believe to have been some sort of chocolate cake. The scones were beautiful but cleary had been microwaved because they were scalding hot in the middle so much that it immediately made the cream split and run. I saved what looked to be some sort of vanilla or white chocolate creme with strawberrys for last and i could not have been more disappointed! Strawberrys were beautiful but the bland jelly i couldn't eat im not sure if chef left out flavour by accident. Standards have seriously slipped and you would be pushed to get me back. I loved my gluten free afternoon tea treat every 3 months. I was considering Galgorm resort as my wedding venue but after that tea i wouldn't have faith in the food for my special day. The toilets at the entrance also needed cleaned as there was trash lying about. I cannot fault the staff though they were superb as normal and were tipped as usual.
Excellent. Beyond our expectations!
We booked the sereni-tea for a friends birthday. Informed the Galgorm prior to this however we were disappointed that there was no little extras in the package to celebrate this. The afternoon tea came in a picnic basket as planned with plenty of little goodies however we found that there was only 1 sandwich in the pack & were left a little hungry following!
Best afternoon tea I have had so far, very friendly and professional staff in a beautiful setting
Service was excellent. The savoury food was much nicer than the sweet selection. I am a great lover of afternoon tea and sweets but unfortunately I found the sweet selection very bland and compared to other afternoon tea I have experienced not good value for money. This was bought as a gift to me and to be totally honest it would not be my preferable choice.
A delicious high tea in wonderful surroundings lovely staff great friendly atmosphere. This was a surprise for some friends of ours and they were both delighted. We were able to show them the Spa and Fishmans cottages as we had the pleasure of staying a few weeks ago. Truly great. Regards Trevor
Fantastic as always. Thanks so much.
Beautiful setting and lovely food. The team even organised a beautiful bun with a candle in it as a surprise for my mums birthday! Will definitely be back and recommend to others!
Absolutely fantastic, will most definitely be back
Yet again we had a delicious afternoon tea. Food, service and atmosphere were first Class.
Overall, cannot fault the prifessionalism of the staff and level if service provided. Personally, I feel it would be better to offer A small selection of sandwich filling from which diners can make their own choice. I felt a little robbed by the sandwiches on offer, not very well filled and wouldnt really be my first choice for fillings. On a separate note Easter Sunday was exceptionally hot and as a result the conservatory felt like a sauna. We ebded up bringing half the lunch home as it was just too uncomfortable to sit any longer in the heat. More open windows or air conditioning would have made all the difference. Thanks
Was very disappointed with Easter afternoon tea. The cupcakes were poorly decorated (looked rushed), I could have done a better job. No atmosphere or music- we had a young family sitting next to us watching their iPads and phones. Not what we expected from the river room. I had booked for our wedding anniversary and as we were paying to leave they handed another poorly decorated cupcake and said ‘oh sorry we nearly forgot’. All in all we ate and promptly left after 30 minutes and £60 for three sandwiches and a few poorly cakes.
We had the most lovely afternoon -- The food, service and atmosphere was exceptional .... Thank you for making our day special to celebrate Ellie's 90th birthday 🎉🌸🎁
Best afternoon tea I have experienced! Lovely.
A relaxing afternoon spent enjoying beautifully prepared food. Nice atmosphere and did not feel rushed at any time.
