Had bought a voucher for my husband's birthday for a Gentleman's Tea so disappointed when at the table to find it wasn't available untill October so we had to settle for the usual afternoon tea but that said was still very enjoyable and lucky we both liked cakes !

Service was great. Lovely sunny day so sat outside.
Was disappointed by the amount of sandwiches basically 4 this slices which would make one whole sandwich albeit different fillings.
Tiny yummy cakes.
In my opinion not enough for the £65 for 2 after VAT and service.

Very nice experience, friendly staff, unclear if we could have had more sandwiches as there not too many, some hotels do for the same price, some don't.

Lacklustre welcome, lovely table setting overlooking grounds. Good range of teas, order as many hot drinks as you want. Sandwiches were very good, scones were good but a lack of decent jam and stingy cream, cakes were disappointing and the service was inconsistent. Price increase when they added 5% VAT on bill. Such a shame as had been looking forward to it.

They team were working very hard due to the poor weather. We were the last booking of the day so we were sadly forgotten about. No offer for additional drinks and we had to ask for bill as room being cleared around us. Not the standard we have had in the past. Nice team, but sadly forgotten given it was my birthday treat

It was a beautiful day so we had afternoon tea on the lawn by the river which was stunning.The food was good but we have one vegetarian and one vegan and they seem to think they are the same thing as we were brought two vegan. I also found a large fruit stone in one of my pastries. I would have preferred a pot of coffee but was told it was from a machine so had to have a cup. This meant that the two girls waiting on us were were running in and out frantically which didn't seem to bother them even though they must have walked miles! I was particularly impressed with Charlotte as nothing was too much for her and she would go above and beyond to help us enjoy our afternoon. The other girl Sam was also very helpful. I would definitely do this again.

Overall the experience of Afternoon tea was great. The weather for the day was forecast for thunderstorms. Our afternoon tea was catered to be outside. On arrival people were outside eating. When we were approached to be seated I asked could we sit outside, the young lady said the weather may turn, so she took us inside. Now after us other people were seating outside, this was for lunch and afternoon tea. This was slightly some what disappointing as we wanted to experience the lakeviews etc. Our young 70yr Spanish waiter was very attentive and made us feel relaxed and unhurried and made it very personal with a touch, bringing over a plate inscribed with a Birthday message for my wife.

The only drawback was that we didn't get to sit outside eventhough other people who came after us did. We will return again to Oakley Courts as the grounds are very picturesque.

Lovely afternoon tea - sandwiches cakes and scones were all delicious. The scones were some of the best I’ve had.
A really interesting array of teas also.
Service was excellent and the outside setting in the shade by the river was lovely.

Weather restrictions meant that we were moved inside, which changed the atmosphere slightly. Service was good, pastries and sandwiches were nice and fresh. Scones were overcooked and dry, which was a pity.

Still a fantastic venue and the staff were friendly. Defo recommend it

Wonderful place for an afternoon tea. The teas were refreshing and an unlimited supply. Sandwiches were good and received one refill. The only negative thing was the overbaked, dry and crunchy scones. Also the £5 service charge. The service was excellent. The riverside grounds are beautiful.

Fantastic venue outside close to the river. As it was a lovey day table on the grass, beautiful.
Service excellent. Food a little disappointing, sandwiches bland, cakes good, scones rather odd type and not as tasty as traditional.
Very enjoyable experience.

Excellent service and average food. Nothing was bad but the scones were a little bit dry. The strawberry jam wasn’t very fruity flavour . The best bit was the mini macaroon!

The venue is amazing, a beautiful setting and tearoom
The tea, honestly I have had much better ... sandwiches and scones were lovely, the cake offering was really not good at all ... they didn’t seem fresh, I think bought in, not at all what you’d expect for an afternoon tea at a venue like this, really let the whole experience down

The hotel itself is a lovely place to sit and meet with friends. calm and nice environment, staff are very friendly and helpful.

The afternoon tea sandwiches were nice and tasty
The scones and cakes beautiful. I could not eat all though and left a few as I was full after the sandwiches.

Hot drinks of any kind are included of course.

We met with old friends and had a lovely time. Thanks
