    I have to say that on a previous visit we were seated in the library and found that experience far superior to this one. I totally understand that due to popular demand an alternative setting has been provided but feel that all the ambience that made it so special last time has been completely lost. We were sat very close to a lunch party that included a number of very noisy children which was also disappointing. once seated we could have been in any restaurant, the whole experience was very ordinary.
    Food wise, my only criticism was the ratio, I personally would prefer more savoury such as a mini quiche etc and less cake. Other than that, the food was delicious.
    Service, our waitress was lovely but nobody visited our table after the food was delivered to ask if we were okay or to offer anything else, we had to find a waiter to order more drinks.

    Really lovely meal. We particularly loved the sandwiches, and the tea itself. The other things were lovely, but perhaps slightly too sweet for us - which is probably an absurd thing to say about cakes. The surroundings are exceptional. The staff are very attentive and definitely added to the whole experience. Oakley Hall itself struck us as divine place for a weekend break. The perfect venue for a country house hotel wedding or other large gathering of family and friends. I'll definitely be going back.

    Took my mum and dad for a champagne afternoon tea. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Only minor issue is that next time I would ask them to hold off bringing the tea until we had finished the champagne. Food very nicely presented and service very attentive. Very good choice of teas.

    I was pleased to be able to return to Oakley Hall last week , if only for Afternoon Tea! The food served was absolutely delicious and so plentiful that I did not need to have dinner later! The service was also attentive and friendly. The only thing that I was disappointed in was the new location. Six years ago, I experienced my Afternoon Tea in the library , which I felt had a much more pleasant ambiance for the Afternoon Tea experience.

    I held a surprise baby shower at Oakley Hall for my sister and everyone seemed to enjoy the afternoon tea. The sandwiches, wraps and cakes were lovely and the little baby shower biscuits that the chef cooked were a lovely little extra treat! The part that let us all down was the service from the staff, we found them to be quite rude and when we asked for drinks we found the looks they gave very uncomfortable. We had to ask on a few occasions where our drinks were as the service was slow. The cost of drinks at the bar was far too expensive and for the amount of money they charge for these there was no friendliness or appreciation. Like I said the food was lovely but the service and cost of drinks has put me off of going to Oakley Hall in the future which is a shame!
