The Drawing Room sits within Yorkshire's only 5-star luxury hotel, Oulton Hall and serves quintessentially English afternoon tea in a majestic 18th-century mansion. Be waited on by a traditional butler in full garb as you take in the immaculate lawns and resplendent interiors at the Grade II listed Drawing Room.

A selection of finger sandwiches adorn silver-plated cake stands, with fillings including cherry smoked salmon and cream cheese and cucumber. Signature rhubarb scones accompany dishes of fresh, clotted creams and jams, along with homemade sweet pastries, fruited Yorkshire tea loaf, fine leaf teas and a range of fluffy sponges, cakes and coffee.

Imperial sofas and baroque wallpaper complement the crystal chandeliers and stately art that covers the Drawing Room walls. Heavy, draping curtains frame the grand windows, whilst shades of duck-egg blue and apricot highlight the blackened oak panelling that sweeps through the room.

Drawing Room @ Oulton Hall Hotel is a 5-mile drive from Leeds station. As well as boasting its own 27-hole golf course, the Drawing Room in Leeds is also a 15-minute drive to Temple Newsam Park golf course.

    The service, room and atmosphere was fantastic. The waiter was very attentive, putting the cushion behind my back and noticing that my cup needing a top up was a nice touch. Only thing was, I booked a Christmas afternoon tea where we should have had a free glass of mulled wine which we didn't get. The Christmas atmosphere and décor was just perfect. Drinks at the bar are a little expensive (two glasses of wine and one soda was £19.75)

    As ever, our visit was a wonderful experience. The usual high quality of catering was in evidence and tasted delicious. The staff were the very model of courtesy and were very attentive. As we luxuriated in the splendor of the library our minds drifted away to an otherwise lost age of elegance. A superb afternoon that made our 37th wedding anniversary complete. Thank you.

    Oulton hall is a speacial place to me and my husband and so we enjoyed afternoon tea there with our newborn in comfy surroundings. However i was shocked to gind there is now setvice charge added to the bill....i can only hope this goes to the staff and not the hotel as it does make the afternoon tea quite expensive expecially if you leave a tip on top!
