Within the elegant Hanbury Manor Marriott Hotel, exquisite afternoon teas take place in four individual charming rooms - the Zodiac, Cocktail Bar, Oak Hall and Library in a classical country estate surrounding.

The Oak Hall & Cocktail Bar menu perfectly complements its timeless British regal setting. The classic Hanbury Manor afternoon tea is a speciality, offering finely cut sandwiches, freshly baked scones and a selection of delicate French pastries. An extensive selection of teas are a perfect accompaniment, as is a glass of the finest champagne.

The previous office of the convent school Headmistress, the roaring open log fire and wood panelled walls in Oak Hall at Hanbury Manor create an atmosphere of refinement. A comprehensive drinks menu is also available at Oak Hall & Cocktail Bar, perfect for a pre-dinner cocktail or post-dinner nightcap.

In the rolling Hertfordshire countryside, the Oak Hall & Cocktail Bar at the Hanbury Manor Marriott Hotel offers the very best in traditional British dining and elegance.

    Beautiful venue, quality service and delicious food. Friendly and professional staff. Lovely experience to mark the coming of the New Year. No hesitation in recommending. I look forward to another chance to repeat the experience.

    Great venue and atmosphere, as well as live entertainment. Food quality is good although we have had better sandwiches at other places. Overall very satisfied.

    Beautiful venue, expensive compared to many other deals out there but probably worth it for the surroundings and environment. Watch out for the 12.5% service charge automatically added, very naughty. Brought total bill for afternoon tea (finger sandwiches, scones and patisserie for 2) to a whooping £94.50!!

    The venue was beautiful, we were a little disappointed we were taken into the plain room with tables and chairs rather than the grand room with sofas though.
    We sat down and someone took our coats straight away and gave us the menus. Shortly after that, we ordered and the food came very fast. We ordered one vegetarian and two traditional and thought that was what we received, until we got the bill at the end and had been charged for a 'festive' afternoon tea at almost double the cost. We didn't know we had been eating the 'festive tea' so was a bit shocked at the cost.
    We received our food shortly after ordering. However, we had to wait 10 minute she after receiving our food for our drinks. We had to ask for our drinks again and they re confirmed our order. This was a little frustrating because everyone else around us recieved their drinks first and did not have to wait to start.
    The staff were all very friendly and the venue was beautiful.
    We wouldn't come back for a 'festive' tea because it was not worth the cost but would possibly come back for the normal traditional tea if we could be placed in the grand room (and didn't have to wait a long time for our drinks.

    Very enjoyable, nice food, lovely setting but quite expensive -£40 each for tea, cakes & sandwiches! With a hefty £25 service charge!
