A really lovely afternoon tea at a very newly refurbed venue. The food was delicious and there was plenty of it. We enjoyed the prosecco option too. Service was great.

I was not told it was Halloween afternoon tea. I do not celebrate Halloween
The tea pot was tiny and no too up offered
The afternoon tea was very small in relation to the price charged
Way overpriced

Quite pricey but food was ok. Cream cheese on the salmon rolls was dry and cracked. Quite loud music with a beat that was too intrusive. Cakes and scones very tasty and service pleasant too

Good food and service. Nice seating and courtyard surroundings. One star off because of persistent wasp we eventually whacked with our wooden spoon table number 😂

Last day of eat out to help out, so was busier than usual. Service however was shocking. Dirty table, no staff wearing PPE or making any effort to distance themselves from each other or customers. Afternoon tea food was very tasty though. Disappointed with the lack of atmosphere, and we had to ask for almost everything (table to be cleaned, milk for tea, bill took 15mins to arrive). Shame as we are regulars and it is usually our go to for special occasions. We did email rather than post a negative review, but 5 days later and we still haven’t had a reply.

Milton's is an attractive part of the Cantley House Hotel, and you have the afternoon tea either outside in the newly done up courtyard or inside in the barn bar area. We were inside as it was a bit windy.
It was very pleasant and you got tea of your choice, I had Earl Grey, a glass of prosecco ( we chose the sparkling afternoon tea) a good selection of finger sandwiches, petite fours with carrot cake, and of course scones with cream and strawberry jam. Two scones each, one with fruit and one plain.
There is certainly enough food to fill you up and they were pretty tasty.
It was sometimes tricky to catch the waiters eye if we needed something but overall the service was good.
It was advertised at £25 per head but after service charge was included it came to £31.50 per head. We were there about 3 hours. Tea was bottomless and we had two lots but this was included in the price.

Superb food. All tasted delicious and seemed freshly made. Much too much for us to eat it all, but we happily took home a doggy bag!
Weather was a little drizzly, but manager moved an extra parasol over to shelter us.
We were a party of 8 (2 tables of 4) and it would have been nicer if the tables could have been in closer proximity to each other, but we managed.
A lovely afternoon. Thank you.

Went for afternoon tea, only sandwich choice was coronation chicken or cheese and pickle, neither are a traditional afternoon tea sandwich. Ordered from main menu, all very heavy options for lunch in mid summer, no light options or salads. Won’t go back.

I am sorry to hear that you were not happy with our service. You should have been provided with more tea indeed and we always are happy to top it up. I can assure you that all our cakes ans scones are freshly made on site by our Pastry Chef. Perhaps next time you will have a better experience?

The venue is ideal for Afternoon Tea and meeting friends the tables and area were clean in line with the Government instructions for Covid 19. The service was very good together with the food nothing was a problem for the staff. I would recommend the venue.
