We came to have the afternoon tea, everything was so nice, can't really say what was our favourite, as we liked them all,
Thank you so much, for the card you left for our anniversary, that was a lovely & kind touch
The staff were very polite & helpful,

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.

    We were really disappointed with our experience for afternoon tea. My wife and I were seated on a low couch with an even lower tiny table in front with our backs to any view in an enormous grand room. We literally sat and looked at a fireplace (which might have been nice in the winter, but on a lovely sunny summers day was terrible). Once we were seated, it was 26 minutes until anyone came to acknowledge us and that was only after my wife asked if we could get any service. By the way, it was 10 minutes after she asked for service finally a woman ( not one of the wait staff) came to our table and asked if she could do anything. We said take our order please. She did. My wife asked on her sandwich order for no cucumber sandwich. Instead please cheese and pesto. When the food finally arrived, there were cucumber sandwiches. No cheese and pesto, just cucumber. My wife hailed someone ( no one came to ask) and eventually another plate of sandwiches were brought to us including cheese and pesto. The overall quality of the sandwiches were ok, however bread could have been fresher. The scones were lovely and warm, but the deserts were past their sell by date. Having a sense of an epic fail at our table, the wine waiter did pour us an extra glass of fizz, and in the end they took all the prosecco off our bill. But we left feeling so disappointed at our experience.

    Truly elegant experience!! From the booking confirmation via telephone, to the welcome on arrival, the table linens and crockery, the birthday cards, the food, professional staff - all magnificent!

    Afternoon tea was in beautiful surroundings and with very attentive staff, but the food itself did not match those offered at other quality establishments locally which are less expensive.

    Great guy on reception to tea room, great confirmation call prior to day, very helpful at meeting dietary requirements. However afternoon tea was disappointing, sandwiches very poor quality, no jam served with scones. Tea was cold by the time sandwiches arrived, and flies were annoying. Not worth the price charged expected better quality of food.

    Beautiful setting, great service seating and bringing out the afternoon tea but that is where it ended. We had been previously and the service was fantastic throughout, people checking we had enough and that everything was ok, but this time the food and drink was brought to us then we didn't see anybody . We had two young ladies with us , who would have liked some more sandwiches but there was nobody to ask. They both chose some tea which they hadn't had before and realised they didn't like it, they tried to drink it but after a while I managed to call somebody over to ask if we could just have some ordinary tea, the tea came but with no milk, and yet again nobody around to ask for the milk so they had to drink black tea. It was rather disappointing as it was a birthday gift and I booked as only a month or so ago I had been and the service was perfect ,during that visit the restaurant was nearly full, during this recent visit there was only three other small tables dining so I don't understand why the service had changed so much?

    We arrived nearly 30 minutes early but were shown immediately to our table, which was a pleasant surprise as we had expected to be asked to wait. The environment was relaxing and all other parties were discreetly distanced from each other (more so than in other restaurants). We felt like Lords and Ladies. The service could not be faulted.

    All of the food was lovely . However a beautiful touch was made by the "Happy Birthday" and truffles presented to
    my gran for her celebrating her 90th birthday .

    Tea was very strong- I couldn't drink it,
    Selection or afternoon tea sandwiches was limited but we were able to make swaps.
    Atmosphere was stiff, a little background music would have been nice

    We had afternoon tea which was delicious. The service was good and waitresses very polite and helpful. Wonderful surroundings but spoilt by too many flies buzzing around the food.
