                  Mushroom soup tasted like dirt. Sausage roll was very greasy, not much better than something out of a shop hot food counter. Actually had stomach cramps for 2 hours afterwards.

                  I took my wife for afternoon tea, she is vegan so it was important that everything was vegan, they did a good job of that. I marked down because the server brought me a plate which wasn’t washed and also told my wife she had vegan clotted cream when it was infact butter. Don’t really expect miscommunication when you’re paying £70 for 2 people. Overall my wife had a fantastic time, thanks.

                  Vegan options were pretty poor, tomato sandwich and a roasted veg sandwich (just pepper and corgette in dry bread) No vegan scone - is very essential to an afternoon tea. But the serving staff were lovely and it's definitely not their fault

                  Quite disappointed with our experience, took about 15mins to get a drink, latte arrived with coffee dripping down cup, afternoon tea arrived with no butter or jam fir scones, no explaination of what it all consisted of, it was 75th birthday Celebration and major treat, I feel the room we where in had no ambience and quite dated compared to rest of hotel, food was lovely but overall fairly disappointing

                  I booked this experience for my father’s birthday because I loved the idea, but also because it was located in a 5* hotel. The food was very nice and was exactly as I expected. The service on the other hand was appalling and very disappointing.

                  Afternoonn tea was excellent. Plenty of variety and mocktails were a lovely touch. Service was impeccable, very attentive and helpful with dietary requirements. Will be back again.

                  Great afternoon tea, really enjoyed it. The server unfortunately did not know what all the items were in the tiered settings, I think…, I think…, turns out most were incorrect. But the food was delicious even though we didn’t really know what we were eating.

                  Attended afternoon tea at Fitzwilliam. Afternoon tea environment held in restaurant area which overall seemed to be very dark. Wide selection of sandwiches, sweet and savoury treats. Sandwiches & scones were very tasty however left slightly disappointed with the sweet treats and savoury treats as overall had no real flavour. Don’t think I would recommend to a friend.

                  Honestly was expecting more. Wasn’t the best. The service was okay however we had to ask for the tea. The fundamental thing. No one explained the choice of sandwiches and the treats. It was actually poor compared to the local competitors. Food was okay
