Restaurant description

Offering a slice of British heritage, 2 AA Rosette-awarded Stapleford Park Country House Hotel is surrounded by 500 acres of spotless landscape. Awarded the 2013 TripAdvisor certificate of excellence, afternoon tea at the imperial country estate is a sumptuous affair, while the Regency setting lends itself to a whole host of outdoor pursuits.

Cream tea served with warm, fluffy scones leads the Afternoon Tea spread, together with clotted cream and homemade jams. Finely-trimmed finger sandwiches, sweet cakes and pastries and a glass of chilled champagne can also be enjoyed in a selection of rooms or on the charming outdoor terrace which overlooks the flourishing grounds.

Imperial décor dominates the design scheme at the Stapleford Park Country House Hotel in Melton Mowbray, with regal armchairs and plush sofas littering the vintage-style rooms. Crackling log fires inject a cosy warmth throughout, while leather-bound books and antique art fills the sprawling space.

A 10-minute drive from Melton Mowbray Rail Station, Afternoon Tea at Stapleford Park in Leicestershire is just a 20-minute drive to Rutland Water Nature Reserve.

    Very good afternoon tea. The sandwiches in particular were delicious and exceptional.

    Fabulous location, service very good. Food was okay, one of our sandwiches was stale, the scones were dry, the jam was whole strawberries in a runny syrup, not good with scones, the small individual cakes were quite tasteless. Quite disappointing as it is quite expensive compared to other similar establishments. Also it was my partners birthday and I gave them details of an allergy to a particular herb which was included in the menu we viewed online, they had not read this information as neither were known nor mentioned, we had to explain the herb allergy to them.

    Afternoon tea, excellent food, service as always. Made to feel very special by all staff. One small moan, we were seated in the room which led on to reception. Where there was a constant barking of dogs for nearly the whole 2 hours we were there. It appeared dogs were being dropped off and kept somewhere close. Not impressed with this.

    The food was great and the service was friendly. The room itself is lovely and we did enjoy ourselves. There were some issues which were not big problems at all, stapleford park had kindly written a birthday card for my mum & placed it on the table but then had taken us to the wrong table luckily i overheard a lady say 'this isn't my card' & i was able to then interupt and take the card. Not a massive problem but it wasnt a nice start to our tea. We didnt get offered a top up of tea/coffee.

    Setting food and ambience were fantastic. Only slight niggle was the service - staff very friendly but waited at least half an hour for our first drink. Had to enquire about arrival of afternoon tea and noticed at least one other table had to as well. Overall a beautiful place and will return

    We had the traditional afternoon tea and it was delicious! The scones were still warm and were light inside with a firm outer - just right!
