    The reason we chose to come to the high bullen was to celebrate my daughters birthday upon arrival we parked opposite the Laura Ashley kitchen door to me met by a young girl legs akimbo having a cigarette whilst going through her phone not the best first impression, we then entered the restaurant to be met by the same member of staff who said she doesn't normally work Saturdays so wasn't sure what to do, the restaurant itself is lovely if not a bit hot and stuffy and with the exception of three other guests it was empty. we ordered the full afternoon tea and as nobody could manage two scones we shared two cream teas between four both cream teas were put on one stand the portions were meager there were six finger sandwiches between four people and with the exception of the scones that were delightful the cakes were inedible especially the lemon and mint tart. I would consider the portion sizes totally minuscule and it was difficult to understand why there was an additional charge for tea how can you have afternoon tea without the tea being included. Having had afternoon tea at the Ritz, Dorchester and more recently the Rembrandt Hotel in Kensington and Chelsea see attached this is for two people TRADITIONAL AFTERNOON TEA
    Enjoy the British custom of high tea complete with delicate cakes, finger sandwiches and fluffy scones with real cream and jam.

    A selection of freshly made sandwiches: Smoked salmon; cream cheese and cucumber; Chicken salad and mayonnaise; Egg and cress; Tuna and créme fraiche; Roast Mediterranean vegetables and hummus
    Cheese and onion quiche
    A selection of mini desserts
    Carrot cake
    A shot glass of fruit compote and cream
    Homemade scones with clotted cream and preserves
    Your choice of tea and coffee
    £25.95 per person
    I think you would agree they are offering excellent value for money the feeling you get with your restaurant is nice venue shame about the incredible lack of value for money and lack of generosity

    Me and my group of friends had afternoon tea at the Laura Ashley tearoom. The venue, food and service were all excellent with the cream tea element being a real high point. The views out across the rolling hills were superb, even in the classically British, pouring down summer rain.
    We would all highly recommend a visit and would also note that the price is exceptionally reasonable for the amount of food you get and it's quality.

    This is a fantastic experience at a wonderful hotel
    This was a birthday treat for my wife and what a treat...lovely champagne afternoon tea.
    Even better was they catered afternoon tea for children, our 9 and 10 year olds had loved it, candy floss, milkshake, sandwiches and treats helping the adults enjoy in leisure.

    Lovely afternoon tea, with beautiful views. The staff are very friendly and cooprotive. We also used the swimming pool, steamroom & jacuzzi which was a treat. Great value for money! You can also stay there in the hotel if you wish. Would definitely recommend this gem ??. Also there is golf as it is based around golf club.

    Wonderful service and food! We had a lovely time and will definitely be back. Would highly recommend the champagne afternoon tea. We will be telling our friends to visit. The waitresses that looked after our table were lovely and helpful.

    Below average at best! Service was shocking; found myself repeating my order on multiple occasions, wrong items brought, had to chase things. Could hear the servers inside just chatting amongst themselves. afternoon tea both savoury and sweet again average. Bread on sandwiches stale so obviously not made fresh but before service and served at 5pm.
    Wouldn’t go out of my way to go back
