    First visit - pleasantly surprised. Service very good and food delicious and beautifully presented. Only downside was that the lift wasn't working.

    Unfortunately, this was a very disappointing experience. Service was sooooo sloooow. No one checked on us, hot food came cold, and it was expensive. Sorry, but I expected more.

    The noise level was quite high. There are a lot of hard surfaces so our group of five seniors, some with hearing aids, struggled to hear the conversation. But it was lovely to sit next to an open door and feel the sunshine and eat delicious food.

    Service was great and staff were lovely. I got the cream tea which came with two scones, cream and jam. The scones were ok but the jam and cream were commercial and tasted very very average. The earl grey had no taste. I probably wouldn’t go again.

    Very limited choice for 'lighter' options for lunch. Very overpriced veg lunch dish. The waiter did not know the contents of the dish. The reserved table was not wiped and cleaned beforehand. Noisy.

    The waitress didn't put our order through. The Kitchen closed, and started a new service. However, no one had the nerve to come and speak to us. We waited 45 minutes before asking someone about our order. We had to have a meal choice that was not desired. The manager credited us - but that's not the point. Better communication is what is needed here. Then guests don't get wound up waiting. Our waitress never came near our table again all service. Very bad!
    Ashmolean Rooftop RestaurantResponded 6 days ago
    Dear Cats., I'm sorry to hear about your disappointing experience. We genuinely value feedback like yours as it helps us improve. We apologize that your waiting time was this long as one of our waitress didn't sent the order through at an unfortunate time that our kitchen was closing the lunch service to afternoon tea. We'll definitely address this with our our front of house team to ensure consistency on service specially before kitchen closes. We appreciate you bringing this to our attention. Kind regards, Ashmolean Rooftop
