This was a early Mother's Day treat and was perfect. We did not feel rushed at all and the service we received was exemplary. My mother really enjoyed her afternoon tea in beautiful luxury surroundings. Thank you

    Fantastic setting and beautiful building. Staff attitude full and unfriendly. I was made to feel guilty when requesting a gluten free afternoon tea ; the waitress comment 'well everyone will have to wait and chef will have to start again' 'you should have told us before' - I had advised before and the hotel had got it wrong but I didn't fancy arguing in front of the family. We ordered drinks first, the pits of tea came immediately and the coffees were totally forgotten arriving twenty minutes later when prompted and then were wrong. The whole experience although pricey was 'sloppy'. Food very good and well presented but it felt more like eating at Tesco cafe rather than a special birthday treat. In summary, a fantastic setting, staff and service cold and lacking.

    It was a lovely day and the gardens are a beautiful place to sit. We very much enjoyed the cheese and onion wrap and the chocolate mouse on the afternoon tea platter.

    Beautiful Afternoon Tea discrete but attentive staff, and no fuss made when my 6 year old Granddaughter knocked her drink over. I would definitely go back, and recommend to friends.

    We had a lovely afternoon, could have had a few more sandwiches and not so much cake.

    As this was a Birthday surprise (Pat) and my first experience of an Afternoon Tea it was a very pleasant experience . The venue Oakley Hall was very welcoming, comfortable and the service was attentive. I would definitely like to return.

    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.
