    We went for afternoon tea, had a lovely selection of cakes & scones. I had requested an amendment to the sandwich selection which was no problem. Our waitress was very nice, friendly, helpful and efficient.

    this was the second visit but definitely the last, the service was poor,our table was 3pm with a codicil that we had to vacate by 4.15, at 3.20 we received 3 cold coffees and a pot of lukewarm tea, our waiter was new and Italian and spoke little English and brought us a hot chocolate in response to a request for a jug of water(that was quite funny) the food was good but at 3.55 we had to ask for our glasses of champagne.The atmosphere for our table was difficult, trying to make light of the situation and not make a fuss while quietly fuming at the extremely poor service. Would you not think that in a Hilton Bar, everything would be set up before the first customers arrive at 3pm ? very very disappointing, we let them know how disappointed we were but we didn't make too much fuss because the occasion was supposed to be a awkward !!!

    We had afternoon tea for my 50th birthday. The service was delightful and the staff were attentive without being too keen. The food was delicious and they even gave us boxes to take thecakes home we couldn't eat.

    Afternoon tea very good in variety and quality of cakes. Wooden stand that food was served on was tall and seating low, so view of others round the table was obstructed. Would have preferred to eat outside on terrace but food only served indoors.
    Staff friendly. My personal preference is for traditional afternoon tea, cloth on table, china cups etc. which was not the style of tea served at Hilton. Bar is more suited to evening drinks.

    I treated two friends to afternoon tea. It was the first visit for all of us and a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

    I am very disappointed.

  • (((** 17 May 2017 by Felicity Lenk from Bournemouth

    The round table in the banquette is far too small for 6 people having tea. There was not enough room for everything on the table and things kept falling on the floor. The seating was very spacious but the table ridiculously small.
