Had a great meal to compliment a wonderful weekend to celebrate my birthday. Thank you to all your staff at the hotel. Everyone who we met over the weekend were friendly, welcoming and gave great service throughout our stay at the hotel. Can’t thank you enough for making my ‘50th’ birthday a weekend to remember.
We have had a brilliant time. Excellent food and very attentive staff.
I had really high hopes for the afternoon tea, unfortunately it did not match the grandeur of the surroundings. The sandwiches were made without butter and the scones were over cooked.
Great experience and the added touch of a card and sprinkles on the table for my mums 70th birthday. Thank you for making it special
The overall quality of the afternoon tea is good. However it was spoilt by how long it took for the food to arrive. We were served our pots of tea quite quickly but then waited for over half an hour for the food. Although our tea was refreshed, it was simply too late. After drinking two cups of tea I really didn’t need more and I wanted to eat the food with the tea. The waiting staff were polite and explained that they had been very busy. But the restaurant was only half full and most of the food is cold so must be prepared and ready to serve. In conclusion, an event we had looked forward to was spoilt unnecessarily. I felt we should have been given a reduction in the bill. I wouldn’t recommend.
Excellent service and
Lovely afternoon tea for a special occasion. Staff very welcoming.
Lovely food and atmosphere
Enjoyed afternoon tea for my friends 50 th birthday.. It was perfect and she was made to feel very special.
Astonished to see diners arriving bare foot with dirty feet, clothing like they had just stepped out of the shower. Lack of vegetarian choices, drunk people in the restaurant milling around. None of these is what we expect from a 5 star hotel.
The food was fantastic, Harriet our server was so lovely and helpful. There was a little service issue, we had to wait a fair bit and a little issue with the desserts but it was resolved impeccably and we were compensated with a bill reduction. Great meal, lovely staff, no complaints.
Fantastic Afternoon Tea to celebrate my friend's 60th birthday...complete with table confetti balloons and birthday card! My gluten free Afternoon Tea was tasty and was beautifully presented looking as lovely as the "regular" Afternoon Tea! The service was amazing and we got to take the balloons home too! Thank you for your help in making magnificent memories and a truly fabulous end to an amazing weekend full of sunshine and laughter shared with great friends!
Would be nice ti have a few more sandwiches to balance sweet selections. China rose tea is wonferful as id the sausage roll. Staff helpful and friendly.
Lovely food, great atmosphere and didn’t feel rushed at all. Our waitress was very helpful and knowledgable about the food. Can’t wait to come back
Very good food, and excellent service.
My best friend loved having her afternoon tea hen party here and all the guests enjoyed themselves.
The food was lovely the staff were friendly but for the price you pay it was not worth the money, there is no atmosphere either
Went for afternoon tea with family. Range of cakes was excellent and all delicious. Lovely setting and very accommodating/attentive staff.
Smell of fish in The Rise. Staff seemed unprepared for our 3pm booking. Music was very loud and had to talk over it. It was turned down on our request. Staff were pleasant enough but moved tables/chairs around so it was noisy. We opted for the sparkling afternoon tea and were promptly brought our fizz together either the pots of tea. Twenty minutes later our plate of tea arrived. Does no one know how to serve afternoon tea? Your website showed images of your “grand” afternoon tea so where was the white table cloth; silver toned teapot/hot water and milk jugs. Instead we had a teapot that is used in many cafes in York; the hot water jug was a silver tone teapot and the milk jug was a miniature milk bottle. I did not pay for a high dining experience and get a mediocre service. Plus the fact there was a 12.5% service charge which I later realised was discretionary. Sadly, not an experience I will repeat, or any of my friends.
The Rise is a lovely restaurant - the food was delicious, the service excellent, and the atmosphere relaxing.
Staff were fantastic went out of there way brilliant will come again.
Not as good as Betty’s - we were two and could not see each other through the two triple cake stands
Went for afternoon tea - Was lovely experience - staff were very friendly and accommodating
Mains were delicious. Starter (Rabbit Arancini) was v bland. Deserts were Ok. Staff were great
Excellent sandwich and cake selection - absolutely delicious. Very friendly and pleasant serving staff, but it was difficult to get their attention a couple of times throughout the afternoon tea when we wanted re-fills.
