We had the most wonderful afternoon tea for my parents 50th wedding anniversary. Food was lovely and the staff couldn't do more to help us. Thank you

Set in 120 acres of lush parkland grounds, Afternoon Tea at Aldwark Manor is a tranquil spot to enjoy this classic British treat. The 19th-century brick building is full of traditional comfort, and includes a chic brasserie, and two bars with views out across the attached golf course.

All the traditional treats are served on the Afternoon Tea at Aldwark Manor menu, and come beautifully presented. To start, there are delicate finger sandwiches with gourmet fillings like poached chicken with lime and coriander mayonnaise, and English salted cucumber with apple crème fraîche, moving on to home-baked plain and sultana scones served with Cornish clotted cream and red berry preserves.

A selection of expertly prepared desserts are also included at Aldwark Manor in York, such as mixed macarons and dark chocolate delice with brandy snap tuile. As well as selection of loose leaf teas, diners can opt for glasses of champagne and prosecco, and even signature cocktails to add another level of indulgence to their meal.

A great example of classic British indulgence at this 4-star hotel, Afternoon Tea at Aldwark Manor is a 27-minute drive from the centre of York.

    I'm afraid that there is nothing good I can say about this afternoon tea at Aldwark Manor.

    Venue - from the outside Aldwark Manor looks very nice, when we were shown to the seating area the sofas were very old and the material on the arms were had all worn off. The staff hadn't reserved enough seating for us so they had to ask a family of three to move so we could all sit together.

    After eating we decided to walk around the grounds but quickly realised this was a mistake when the stench of raw sewage hit us.

    Service - the service was very average. We were served by a number of different people, most of who didn't seem like they really knew what they were doing and we were asked the same questions by a number of different staff.

    Drinks - when I've had afternoon tea before you are normally offered a choice of teas or coffees (i.e English Breakfast, Earl Grey, Assam, chamomile tea etc..... Dark/medium/light roasted coffee) but the choice here was just tea or coffee. When the tea came it was in a thermos..... There was no sign of a teapot!

    Food - this was probably the worst part of the experience. The food was NOTHING like the pictures displayed on the website and they could probably get done for false advertising. The sandwiches looked and were shoddy and the fillings were very basic and minimal. The large slices of cheesecake were rubbery. The brownie was nice. There was something else which nobody could decide what it was they were eating. The scones had obviously been frozen and microwaved as the centres were rock hard. Needless to say we left quite a lot of the food.

    I feel like a snob writing some of this but when you go for afternoon tea you expect something a bit special..... If I just wanted a drink and a sandwich I'd have just got a Tesco meal deal!!

    This is by far the worst afternoon tea I have ever had and the advertising of it on the Aldwark Manor website should be removed!!

    We were expecting the Christmas Afternoon Tea instead we got what felt like a make do Afternoon Tea. Nothing dainty about the sandwiches just bread with edges cut off filling not as advertised (ham and egg mayo I can have any day of the week) no choice of scones plus no cream. Way to many cakes plus for some reason cress was sprinkled all over them shouldn't it have been on the sandwiches. The size of the macaroon would have been sufficient on its own.
    We were the only people there. I know it is difficult to maintain the menu selection during the quiet times but they should make you aware of this at time of booking. The poor waitress had to fill our tea pot several times as that was the only dainty thing on the table.
    Disappointed as it was my sister's birthday treat.
