    My mum loved her Mother's Day present of afternoon tea at Dunston Hall with me! The location is unique and remarkable. Our waiter Sam was amazing. A little hiccup with our food and he sorted it within a few minutes and brought it back upbeat. He certainly made our trip amusing and he brought a great atmosphere to all the guests! Definitely hope to return one day, food was delicious and I've never tasted traditional breakfast tea like it! Tea leaves you can infuse in your hot water yourself with a little timer for how long you want to brew it for! Loved it. 5 stars.??????????

    It was amazing. The food was incredible and the drinks. Staff was fantastic the guy we had looking after us was Sam he was excellent and very caring. We're definitely going to come again. I loved the cheese and tomato chutney sandwich would love more next time.

    We had booked in for 3pm on Sunday for a friends birthday. However, we were told that there had been a double booking and we were sat at the bar area until 4. The servers were lovely and that made the whole waiting around a little better. But it also appeared you'd also had ANOTHER double booking and another group had to wait for roughly an hour before being sat down.
    We had to send back a champagne glass due to it looking like it hadn't even seen the washing up bowl, lipstick stains and grubby fingerprints on it. The food was average. Your chef was a little too "butter happy" seeing as it was a thick slab of butter pasted into the sandwiches. But the scones and cakes were lovely.
    I was slightly disappointed by the experience but we still had a lovely time as a group. The two gentlemen that tended to us at the bar and at the table were lovely but I can't say we'll be coming back in a hurry.

    Very disappointed, no welcome when we arrived! Food poor, sandwiches had poor filling, scones were very dry, we had one apple tart cut in half, one macaroon cut in half, the carrot cake and lemon tart were delicious though. Staff were overstretched and therefore the attention we expected was missing! Dunston Hall must do better!

    Food was fantastic, service from our server was great although some other staff looked as though they weren't enjoying themselves.

    I came here for afternoon tea 2 months ago and it was brilliant...i then came here yesterday and was very disappointed. The menu had changed to very cheap food. I was not made aware of the menu change at booking. Would not go here again and not worth the money at all.

    Wow. Excellent scones lovely and warm and great choices. Sandwiches were really dainty but extremely filling and cakes yum. Refillable teas and coffees at no charge. Highly recommended

    Okay so we arrived with no clear indication or idea as to where to go. Finally got there, asked bartender and he pointed us to right room. Only one lady was waiting the afternoon tea section and she was so busy with other people there that it was hard to get much attention.
    But she was lovely, explained the way it all works to us newbies of afternoon tea, made us feel welcome.
    The tea was lovely, savouries were good, scones delicious and unfortunately I cannot make any comment on the desert as by that time we were both so full we could fit them in!
    I had pictured sandwiches with the savouries. But instead, all except the smoked salmon, were meat just on hard French toast. Don't get me wrong it was tasty, but not as I expected and probably would have been nicer as proper sandwiches.
    The lady finished her shift and for the remaining time we were there, (which was over an hour) no one replaced her. So we sat there with no one to get drinks and no clear indication as to who to give our money to. We had to get drinks at the bar and pay for it there, which the bar staff acted like it was such an inconvenience to be paid. The bar was horrendously busy and I struggled getting to and from it.

    But all in all, beautiful place, comfy seats and nice comfy room temperature. The food was nice but the service was lacking. We still wish to go again even so to try the normal menu once Christmas rush is over.
