Had a great meal. Staff very attentive and the value is good. I only marked 3 for ambience but this seems an unfair question and score as no idea how it would be under normal non Covid conditions.
Amazing! Lovey Christmas Eve - thank you. Great experience x
The cheese scone was quite peppery. The white bread was a little on the stale/ hard side.
Lovely festive afternoon tea, friendly and attentive staff, great atmosphere.
As ever the whole experience was wonderful. Rod is so cheery and welcoming, as are all the staff. Full English, Vegetarian Full English and Eggs with smoked salmon all absolutely delicious...Eggs fried in butter are scrummy.
It is also very nice to eat somewhere where the noise level is quiet, we could hear our conversation, and it was very relaxing.
Beautiful Christmas Eve breakfast, food was delicious, service was fantastic, Christmas trees were magical along with the lovely Christmas music.
Excellent service with a smile. Staff can't do enough for you. Beautiful setting and amazing food
Excellent as ever. Tailored to the current restrictions. Staff were great
My expectations were high ...but the menu choice is extremely limited...the venue is spectacular
We ate two courses for £20 which was excellent value and the food was delicious. My wine was perfect too. We really enjoyed our meal, it felt very special.
An excellent choice for a Christmas or birthday treat. Wonderful food, service which is discreet and attentive, fabulous surroundings with a wonderful atmosphere.
Food was amazing, staff were very friendly and catered to every one of my misses needs. My partner and I want to come back again.
Beautiful place to visit. Sandwich selection very basic. Delicious cake selection. It was odd being given cheese scones with clotted cream and jam. Needless to say we left them.
Afternoon tea was gorgous.Flavours and presentation was lovely.Food was on same standards as a London hotel.Would recomend to anyone.
Lovely afternoon tea, working very hard to keep customer service standards high while wearing masks is hard.
Great selection and very filling!
Love the afternoon tea and different theme's .great service lovely place . I have been a couple off time and will be go again x
I didn’t know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised.Very nice sandwiches and lovely cakes nice surroundings staff very friendly.Didn’t have to wait too long for anything.A nice experience i would visit again and also recommend a friend
Loved our meal at the assembly rooms, very tasty veggie dish
Fantastic Christmas afternoon tea as it always is at the Assembly House. The food is excellent and the staff are always amazing
Pleased to get a last minute booking. Lovely building and exceptional service. Great food and well priced.
We had thee most romantic and wonderful Christmas date. The food was delicious, the service was wonderful and the ambience was perfect. We will be back as soon as we are able to! Thank you.
Food disappointing. Both main meals were dry. Desserts far better than main meal.
Didn't think cakes were that special, as had better at , other venues for a lot less money.
As always a wonderful afternoon tea at the assembly house for my husband and I couldn’t fault it
Absloutly lovely Narnia inspired afternoon tea, thoroughly enjoyed by all. Always a lovely experience.
Just had the most perfect weekend here staff all amazing esp Jamie thankyou for making our weekend so perfect food was fantastic room 10 was beautiful
What a lovely experience in these strange times we live in. Well done assembly house a fantastic experience
The whole experience was wonderful. Food delicious.
Delicious food great place to relax with your family amazing service
Beautiful setting, lovely food and a really good experience overall.
It was so nice to be able to do something “normal” during these unpredictable times!
The outside pods look amazing and we really hope to try one next time we go.
A lovely afternoon tea, very good attentive service and a lovely atmosphere
Wonderful place to go for a meal particularly prior to the theatre. Would have been nice to have the hum of Christmas musics in the background especially as it was not so noisy due to social distancing. Food was excellent couldn’t fault it. Friendly staff too
Excellent food and quiet, efficient service. Rather lacking in atmosphere as not many other customers when we were there.
Very un festive, the entrance hall needs some Christmas music to greet you, it was deathly, quite miserable, so quiet.. restauramt not much better, no background music. Am hoping our visit on Boxing Day will be much more cheery.
Food and service good .
Liked the fixed price menu, 2 courses £20 ,3 for £25. Limited choice but seasonal and varied to suit most tastes. Attentive and friendly staff with prompt service. Food well presented and portion size just right. Felt Covid safe. We redeemed a £50 voucher which had been a anniversary present so can safely say it was a lovely gift xxx
Service and food was perfect. Only bonus would have been some nice Christmas music in the background as it was really quiet
We thoroughly enjoyed our Narnia-themed afternoon tea. Everything was truly exquisite!
Once again,we had a delightful afternoon tea.Food was delicious,and the staff were attentive,and charming.We have been several times,and will come again often in the future.It is always a treat.
I got a parking ticket for £100 even thought I paid for parking but apparently some space for residents even though we were at the assembly not very happy at all will not attend again
Over the years I've been here many times, not sure I'll be back though, the service we received was very poor, waited ages for our orders to be taken, even though the server was standing around, had to ask several times for more drinks, and remind her, was told the warm savories were an extra charge and that it had always been like that, when I said I'd never had that before, she made me feel extremely uncomfortable and marched off.
Not once did she ask if everything was alright, even though she seemed to ask other tables around us. She also wasn't impressed when I asked her to remove the gratuity.
