    We had such a great tea experience at The Orangery. The service was great, and the food and tea was even better. We had tea at several places throughout our trip to England, and we all agreed the food at The Orangery was the best!

    Lovely food, lovely surroundings. Unfortunately the floor under our table was very dirty. Squashed berries and masses of breadcrumbs. We complained and were moved. Would be nice to have a complimentary bread basket and perhaps a small wrapped biscuit or wrapped chocolate with the coffee.

    Wonderful end to a lovely day at Blenheim. Beautiful conservatory sprinkled with orange trees, with marvelous views across the Italian garden and the south lawn. Charming staff, friendly, efficient and attentive. Our afternoon tea was a real treat, a good selection of sandwiches and cakes and the best scones we have ever tasted! I would like to do this again..........and again............and again.
