Afternoon Tea in the Lounge:
Afternoon Tea is served daily 15.00 - 17.00
We had a spa day for two, we included breakfast and afternoon tea as extras to make the whole experience more enjoyable. I cannot fault a single thing, the whole experience was superb, the grounds and house are absolutely stunning, the food was delicious and the service was outstanding. Will definately return and highly recommend!
Most enjoyable ambiance, very relaxing. Peter Payne
As always, great food, great atmosphere and a great evening.
Absolutely brilliant service and food. Beautiful establishment and highly recommend a visit here with your special someone.
Would highly recommend a visit!
I took two friends to Whatley Manor for the full afternoon tea at the weekend. We sat in the drawing room with a welcome fire roaring away and finally emerged about two and half hours later having enjoyed a superb tea. The food was beautifully presented with a delectable choice of sandwiches and we all agreed that the doughnuts filled with lemon curd were to die for . Our only dilemma was that we couldn't finish it all! This was no problen though as we were offered goody boxes to take away the remaining scones. The staff were extremely attentive and served us copious amounts of coffee!!!! My friends had never been to Whatley before and were very impressed with the beautiful hotel, the delightful gardens and of course the food! Would definitely recommend our experience to everyone.

We had a lovely evening, and found our visit to the kitchen for the chefs tasters very interesting. Although hesitant at first we were glad we did, we met Niall who was a very humble and pleasant young man and took the time to explain some of his tasters, I’m still surprised how calm the atmosphere was in the kitchen. The dining room was busier than expected but the staff were excellent and all very pleasant warm Characters which created a comfortable atmosphere. The food was of course, excellent.
Everything was perfect, thank you to all involved.
Wonderful place with perfect service I had a fantastic afternoon tea
Lovely place with plenty of room to relax.
A very big thank you to everyone that contributed to us have an absolutely amazing day, we had our Festive family Christmas meal yesterday and everyone had a wonderful time, all the staff were so friendly and helpful, the Christmas trees and decorations were fabulous, it all added to us having a very special day, thank you. Happy Christmas to you all. Best wishes, Carole Lenehan.

We were absolutely delighted at the immaculate service, delicious tea and very friendly, helpful staff. Everyone enjoyed themselves very much. A big thank you from the group.
Whatley Manor never disappoints. This time, my sister and I visited for Afternoon Tea. It was an absolute delight - relaxed, gentle, restorative. We enjoyed the sandwiches and cakes enormously; the staff, as always, were friendly, welcoming and helpful. The afternoon was made perfect by a walk around the beautiful gardens as Whatley snoozed in the late September sunshine. I still bask in the glow! Thank you everyone.
Excellent as always..
Relaxing and enjoyable afternoon tea, in lovely surroundings with great service.
Very enjoyable - food and service excellent
We visited Whatley Spa for afternoon tea so this is no reflection on Niall. The food was nice but nothing really stood out. We booked afternoon tea as it was a Mitchelin restaurant and thought something would wow us but nothing did. There was no atmosphere in the dining room and would have been better served in the lounge, bar or outside on the patio.
Delightful setting and delicious afternoon tea. A real treat.
Lovely time celebrating a friends 40th. Although I asked for candles in her cakes and that didn’t happen which was a shame as we’d planned to play happy birthday. I thought the bottle of prosecco was very over priced as I didn’t think £40 for a bottle is reasonable. I’ve been to other spas where they ask £30 a bottle which is more reasonable at roughly £7.50 per glass. It wasn’t very easy to find the right entrance though so signage could be better. Other than that we had a nice time.
Setting idyllic Rooms; comfort, style, clean with gorgeous views What makes Whatley special & standout from top Hotel/Spas? Staff Everyone from managers to cleaners are friendly, happy, relaxed, willing to go the extra mile to ensure one has everything to make your stay perfect in every way My dream place for the gardens & staff But don't all rush there I want to return soon & need a room!
