    The Festive Afternoon Tea was better than advertised. A reserved table awaited us along with the manager and his staff. They helped us to decide on what tea we wanted, and it was brought out promptly. Not long afterwards, the sandwiches, scones, and sweets followed. The presentation was breathtaking and they tasted even better. The staff was friendly and attentive to our every need. This Tea service was truly a special event and I highly recommend it.

    Very Quiet, was the only couple having afternoon tea and it arrived late (around 30 mins after sitting down), however, the waitress gave us complimentary Prosecco for it. The sandwich were ok but nothing wowed us, we had to spit the egg sand which out but the ham and cheese wrap was delicious. Scones were dry and the desserts was nice but very weird flavours. The brownie like dessert and the hot chocolate was the best thing. It didn’t feel like a Hilton standard of food but waitresses were lovely and helpful.

    Compared to afternoon tea at nearby Browns, which costs the same, this was not value for money. Only two identical scones, and a modest amount (I counted eight) of thinly sliced sandwiches. Also some miniature cakes. The service was pleasant and friendly and I tipped the waiter accordingly. When I'd finished my pot of tea, the waiter brought me a second pot at no extra charge. But the same generosity needed to be extended to the meal itself. There was simply not enough food for two adults.

    Totally misleading venue main photo! 😖 The hotel is NOT by the river as its photo on open table shows! We were in a large lounge on the first floor and windows overlook a road! We expressed our disappointment. Food was okay, the staff were very polite, but didn’t make up for the total lack of atmosphere… I had invited my friend to an afternoon tea by the river and we didn’t get it ☹️

    I booked this to celebrate my friend birthday. On arrival they had not been notified and asked to see the booking. Place was dirty and tables not clean. We were told the tea would be late and offered us soft drinks on the house. I ordered drinks as my level of disappointment was high at that point and told them we are not staying. I was charged for the drinks before leaving. I would never go there again and have put that on social media to warn people.

    We booked the afternoon tea for 3pm and they didn't seem to know about it. We were the only people having it, it didnt seem a common request. Champagne and tea arrived at the same time. The food took over 45 minutes to arrive. Once we finished, our sausage rolls arrived. The food was fine, nothing special or nicer than you could have made at home or picked up from the supermarket

    They were not prepared for us, we were shown to a table that was laid out for 3 for lunch. There was no menu or list of teas available. The sandwiches were dry. The staff did their best but overall the experience was very disappointing.

    I had high expectations for the Hilton as I had booked afternoon tea for my friend’s birthday. I asked for one vegetarian afternoon tea when I booked the table and then was asked to confirm twice on the day that I did indeed want one of the afternoon teas to be vegetarian. Sadly, when it arrived, we were told everything on the stands was vegetarian (even though I wanted meat sandwiches) but even worse was the fact that my friend, who is the vegetarian then picked up a sandwich that we were told was egg, and it turned out to be chicken!! The staff were very apologetic, but my friend’s birthday treat was ruined by the fact she’d just swallowed a bite of a chicken sandwich despite my best efforts to ensure she only had vegetarian options. I was disappointed to say the least, and probably won’t be returning.
