    My friend and I celebrated an early birthday treat at The Rise. We had a wonderful afternoon tea where the food, drink (including a cheeky Prosecco) and service was exemplary. We came away having had a great experience which included a birthday card and birthday badges from the doorman. Would we visit again? A resounding ‘yes’! Thank you everyone!

    The staff were really lovely. The building was beautiful. The afternoon tea was a little disappointing. It's one of the most expensive I've ever done yet it had the least amount of food. We both left hungry and I feel they could have added a couple more sandwiches or pastries to the tray. The scones however were absolutely delicious!

    Been several times for afternoon tea. We always stay at the Grand when in York. The afternoon tea is a good product with plenty of selection in what is a crowded market in York. The service was friendly and efficient. We didn't feel rushed. Excellent vegetarian/vegan choices. Will return.
    The Rise RestaurantResponded on 4 July 2024
    Good Afternoon AndrewO, Thank you for your continued support and for choosing to stay at The Grand whenever you are in York.

We are pleased that our friendly and efficient service, along with our excellent vegetarian and vegan options, contributed to a relaxed and enjoyable experience for you. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Thank you once again for your kind words and loyalty. Kindest regards, Kate Cameron F&B Administrator

    We visited The Grand for the first time after seeing great reviews online. We were seated promptly without any waiting and were given a full explanation of what was available and the options. Our waiter asked again if everything had been explained which was great. I have allergies and don't like many sauces, so I had contacted the restaurant beforehand to request some sandwiches more to my liking. This request was catered for without any issue at all. My husband had everything that was on the normal afternoon tea. You get a really good selection of savory options, I can't call them sandwiches as they were more than that and created in a different way. There was salmon, ham, egg and mushroom. All created in a different unique way. My husband said they were all amazing and delicious. Although I had opted to just have cheese and ham, these were also delicious. You get two scones each, one plain and one with sultanas. These came with strawberry jam and clotted cream. The scones were so light and fluffy, I managed to eat them both which is a first as I would normally only be able to manage one. They were better than the ones I have had at The Ritz and The Dorchester in London, which is saying something as I really love those two restaurants. You were given four small cakes each. Each was very different and light and tasted lovely. You were allowed to have unlimited drinks. I had a strawberry and mango tea and a couple of lattes and my husband had the filter coffee. All very good. The service was also excellent. You were checked on regularly to see if you needed any extra drinks. We were also given extra jam and cream when requested. The only very minor observation was it would have been nice to have a cake fork and tongs to take the small cakes off the stand instead of using fingers. Also the teapot and cup and saucer from my first drink was not taken away after it was finished with. Very minor points and none of which would prevent us from visiting again

    Good Morning, Thank you for taking the time to share such a detailed and glowing review of your visit to The Grand. We are thrilled to hear that you had an enjoyable experience and that our team was able to accommodate your dietary preferences with ease. It is wonderful to know that you and your husband appreciated our unique and delicious savoury options, as well as the light and fluffy scones. We are particularly honoured by your high praise comparing our scones to those at The Ritz and The Dorchester in London. Your feedback about the cake fork, tongs, and timely removal of used tea service is invaluable, and we will certainly take it into consideration. We look forward to welcoming you back to The Grand soon. Warm regards, Kate Cameron F&B Administrator

    It was a very nice afternoon tea for very good value considering the location especially when you look at other afternoon tea locations around York. The food was very nice and slightly more interesting than the traditional afternoon tea which we liked.

    The afternoon tea itself was great but I was charged twice for it. I paid for the tea at the restaurant right after I finished and even gave a tip. Later that day, my other card was also charged for the tea (sans the tip), and this was the card I had booked the tea with but did not use at the restaurant. I have submitted an enquiry and have yet to receive a reply back. I'm puzzled as to why they would charge my booking when I would pay after the experience anyways.

    Good Afternoon, Thank you for your feedback. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the afternoon tea.
