Excellent setting with food to match. The service was very good and they made a special effort given it was my grandmas 91st birthday.

Twilight tea at The Principal York Hotel is a unique, luxurious and quintessentially British treat. This stunning Grade-II listed building sits in the city centre, with diners given spectacular views of the hotel gardens.
The Principal York Twilight tea is an evening alternative to traditional twilight tea, a lighter, later afternoon tea experience including finger sandwiches, scone selection, jam and playful petit fours with a sharing cocktail tea pot.
The Principal York is a wonderfully luxurious British treat, and is just a one-minute walk from York Rail Station.

Lovely relaxed atmosphere and an added touch of an extra decorated brownie to go with our afternoon tea as it was our wedding anniversary.

Beautiful tea room. Lovely cakes. Polite staff but were a bit forgetful. Chairs were very comfortable. Weren't rushed at all. Ask for a table by the window.

Afternoon tea experience was average & a little over priced. Lovely venue though & excellent service.

We enjoyed our visit to the Garden Room very much. Everything was just perfect. The food, service and ambience were excellent. We were celebrating our 61st wedding anniversary and nothing could have been more perfect for this iccasion. We will certainly be coming again.
