                                        The gentleman waiter was very attentive and friendly. We weren’t rushed out, it’s nice being able to sit all afternoon without feeling pressured. The decor was lovely and I was chuffed to hear the Christmas music on! Will definitely be back :)

                                        Took a friend here to celebrate her birthday. The staff went out of thier way to make it special and it was. The deli board was very generous and great to share. The flat bread was delicious as was the wine.

                                        Service was not best, rather slow and drinks forgotten off order. Coffee was poor and reflected on the espresso martini which was also poor, didn’t appreciate powdered chocolate on top. Sharing platter was basic for the cost. I have been several times before but this time I felt it was not value for money overall.

                                        Unfortunately this is the the second occasion in which the service left a lot to be desired. I booked through open table , afternoon Prosecco tea for 4 people. Upon arrival I noticed in the menu that you could have afternoon tea +1 glass of Prosecco or Prosecco(1bottle) afternoon tea for two . When I said that I wanted the latter and that upon booking and paying a 50% deposit this option was never offered.I was told that the “system” had me in for the other option and it couldn’t be changed!!! The difference being 2 bottles if Prosecco instead of 4 glasses and pay the additional cost . How can that not be amended !! I am back in on the 15th!!! Let’s see

                                        Service was a bit slack, food was forgotten & had to keep going to the bar for drinks. Other than that we had a lovely evening.

                                        Didnt eat as we are not fans of grazing boards with olives and humans. Pizza or similar would sell better

                                        Very expensive afternoon tea for three £66 but what was included wasn't worth that at all. The first sandwich I tried was already going stale before we even got started. The tea kept going cold but the waiter wasn't coming along to refill it so after two cold cups we gave up.

                                        Lovely place. Great vibe, setting and general look of the furnishings. Food was well presented and even had gluten free option for deli board. The only thing I would improve would be to extend the food offer. Sharing platters didn’t offer much for my husband who is a bit more of a picky eater. I enjoyed it! It would be nice to see something else offered- Particularly moving into the autumn/winter. Loved the vibe though.. setting was beautiful and lovely decor gave a great indoor/outdoor feel. Staff could not have been any more helpful. Can’t wait to go back.

                                        We only booked for cocktails. These were absolutely brilliant especially being 2 for 1. It was really busy so the wait for drinks was really long… 25 mins! The drinks were worth it once they arrived though.

                                        The whole day at Rickerby Retreat was perfect! From coffee and scones on the roof terrace through wonderfully relaxing tailor made treatments, to lunch in the sunshine. The staff are friendly and attentive yet professional and unintrusive. I can’t think of a better way to spend a perfect day!! Thank you’
