    Tea with friends was great, the "butler" was attentive and friendly and very accommodating with our food choice. The food was fantastic, I had coronation chicken I artic bread with a few sneaky ones from my friends- they had cheese, egg, ham and tuna. The warm quiche was delicious, the scones were sooooo fresh! the teeny tiny cakes were yummy. but I am not 100% certain cream should be served in a sauce boat. Our only hicough of the visit was a discrepancy with the bill- we were charged the weekend rate which was £4 each more, not happy about that but it was sorted out promptly. The Halloween theme around the hotel was lovely we enjoyed the sweeties and the oranges, many thanks to the staff for that.

    Afternoon tea at Oulton Hall. I have been to this venue lots of times so knew what to expect. The venue is beautiful. Service and staff first class. The scones as usual are delicious. However, I feel the sweet selection has been scaled down and I now feel the overall experience is very expensive. Disappointed as I love the venue.

    Good starter (Torched Mackerel), OK Mains (Ribeye), Reasonable dessert (Cheese). Service could only be described as adequate - lacked charm.

    Staff were helpful and considerate to customers needs. However on arrival at the ‘Claret jug’ we were told it was carvery. This wasn’t advertised or mentioned on booking. Then the choices on the carvery were a bizarre mix: beautiful roast pork, pork chop, chilli, macaroni cheese, new potatoes, mixed veg etc. For £28 felt like a mix up of all left overs. I didn’t expect this from such a place.

    When I was booking our visit online, everything was so easy to follow through, I did ring up a day before to sort out the bill and person on the phone was so polite! It was absolutely beautiful from start to finish, we were celebrating my partners birthday! Nothing was too much trouble, we had an amazing afternoon tea with plenty of options, tea was delicious and atmosphere was so warm and inviting, almost didn't want to leave. All staff are well presented and concierge was very helpful. Overall it was excellent

    We love Afternoon Tea at Oulton Hall. The whole experience is such a treat with butler service, nothing is too much trouble and lovely chairs and sofas to relax on. The rhubarb scones are amazing. Booked this one as a mid week treat with a glass of Prosecco and had a lovely time.

    All was well until we were given a table with a marble top and easy chairs near the window. The table top was FULL of rings where cups etc had been and the table not wiped. We were served well at first and then waiters busied themselves with other things talking quite noisily. We had to seek their attention and at one point I had to go looking for one. The tea was average, the fruit cake was dry and the sandwiches out of the fridge and cold.

    My friend and I had another enjoyable afternoon tea, an annual event. The service was excellent as always. We then vacated to the champagne bar where the service was atrocious, to the point that we ordered a bottle of champagne which our first selection they didn’t have, our second choice they didn’t have so had to go and find a bottle from the restaurant. My friend wasn’t then handed the bottle and then asked if she wanted him to open it! A guest then carried the ice bucket outside to our table. This service is not what we’re used to.
