The Sandwiches were dry and tasteless, the cakes pretty boring and the scones rock hard and tasteless. Ridiculous for the amount of £34.50 a head that they charge!

We were a group of 6 and to be honest we felt a little rushed at times and sent the waitress away more than once, there were many empty tables and we were well within the 2 hour allocated time when we had finished. Very disappointed with the scones (main feature of an afternoon tea?) which are tiny and not enough cream for everyone, (1 very small to for 6 scones) did not ask for more although maybe should have done. Setting is beautiful and grounds lovely. This is our first visit and we would stop by much more frequently if there was mooring available as would all of our friends just along at Bray Marina, I feel Oakley Court is missing a trick here ....but clearly just my opinion and preference to arrive by boat rather than car.

We were asked on booking if it was a special occasion, to which we replied yes our wedding anniversary. What relevance this had to our experience we did not understand, as no reference was made to the occasion. We also felt the service was a little slow between tea and sandwiches.

The gentleman who served us was really lovely. We felt well looked after and not rushed. They were slightly rigid about our mixing our order from the tea menu and a la carte menu but quickly agreed to let us do a mix and match. The steak was absolutely fantastic and we felt that the a la cart menu was better value than the fixed cost of the tea.

Fabulous place for an afternoon tea. We were extremely lucky that we had glorious weather so sitting in the shade on the terrace was perfect. The staff are very attentive and really made you feel welcome.

Great hotel and I have been here before - Service was impeccable and friendly but prices are on the top end and I was disappointed to get a large service charge at the end of the afternoon which pushed the bill up to to over £160 for the 4 of us. I would much prefer that tipping was left to me.

The setting was really gorgeous - great views of the lovely gardens and Thames. The seating was comfortable, and the large parasols had good heaters which helped against the cool breeze. The service was good, and the food was nice.

This was a birthday present to my friend, the service we received was great, we were very well looked after and nothing was too much of an effort. This was from arrival when the weather was awful and we were greeted at the car with umbrellas to enable us to get to the hotel and stay dry and throughout our visit. It was very relaxing and a real escape from normal day to day life

A beautiful setting sitting by the river on a summer’s afternoon. The staff were attentive but not fauning and the homemade jam was amazing!

Lovely collection of cakes and light scones, with fabulous take home boxes.

Will definitely go again

Such a beautiful and tranquil setting for a lovely afternoon tea. We felt very spoiled and nothing was too much trouble for the staff who looked after us. It's pricey but then memories are priceless!

Lovely afternoon tea on the terrace at Oakley Court Hotel.

Even get an attractive box to take home with your uneaten cakes.

Not the cheapest afternoon tea, but for a special birthday treat, it is perfect. The waiting staff looked after us so well, and even packed up the scones and cakes we couldn't quite finish. The views are spectacular, and they didn't mind us wandering around a bit to see the locations for the filming of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Exquisite!

Lovely afternoon tea with very attentive service. Raf who looked after us was fantastic & always topping up drinks without even asking. Food was very good. Beautiful location, however the chairs were very low and not very comfortable. This didn’t ruin the experience though.

Afternoon tea at Oakley Court Hotel was a lovely experience, well worth the cost. Lovely setting and location by the Thames... food and service was great and we sat outside on the veranda amidst the beautiful gardens.
The hotel and grounds are immaculate and justify the cost alone, the staff were welcoming and attentive and our sandwiches, cakes and scones were delicious.... extensive choice of teas and refreshments also included.
We were very lucky as it was a warm, sunny day and we were able to relax and enjoy the ambience. A real treat.

The Gentleman’s afternoon tea was really amazing. Unfortunately we were sat next to a large party who had children running round which I know can’t be helped but it did slightly detract from the lovely setting.

I come here every year to enjoy an 'Afternoon Tea Birthday Celebration' and it was the first time I spent my time outside. The service is explicit as always. Food exceptional and the ambiance just lovely, I cannot wait to book again.
Thank you for always making my visit an enjoyable occasion. I always leave with a smile.
