A special Birthday...was not disappointed.
My guests had never been before, so they were most impressed.
There was a slight problem with the serving of warm scones. I spoke to our waitress, and she apologised immediately with explanation.
I love showing off The Assembly House to new guests.
It was as usual an amazing experience.
The food was absolutely delicious and the service was second to none. The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to provide outstanding service. This was our first Afternoon Tea at the Assembly House and we will most certainly be coming back.
Lovely place to eat afternoon tea is always lovely the themed teas are wonderful I would definitely recommend eating here service and food are excellent lovely relaxing afternoon
Absolutely perfect!! As always but even more so in the current COVID situation. Thank you so much!
Absolutely delicious Vegan Afternoon Tea sitting in the beautiful garden with great service
Have been here several times now and as before we were very satisfied with everything provided. Lovely food, friendly service in great surroundings. Staff were superb in spite of them having to do their jobs wearing face masks. My wife was a bit disappointed that rollmops had run out for her fish platter order, but an alternative addition was offered.
Had our 45th wedding anniversary there we had the afternoon tea delicious . Always a pleasure to eat there from staff being attentive and not overwhelming to the food perfect
Friendly. Nicely spaced tables for distancing. Good protocols in place. Made sure my husbands allergy was looked after and assured. Lovely food. Good service.
They do the best afternoon tea. Never found one I like bettet
Table for two, booked easily. Staff were extremely welcoming and totally professional, despite the social distancing. Food was wonderful,service fantastic. Have had afternoon tea here before and will most definitely be coming back in the future.
Celebrated my Partners birthday along with his daughter who was most impressed on her first visit. Food, surroundings and service all excellent as always.
This was our first outing since lockdown, everything very well organised and we all felt very safe.
Our afternoon tea was a delight. The food was great and the service everything we wanted. It was our first meal out after lockdown and was thoroughly enjoyed. We would recommend to all.
Was the best afternoon tea we have had
Staff very very helpful nothing was to much trouble
The service was discreet, efficient and friendly and the food was delicious. The Assembly House restaurant is a haven of peace in the city.
A very nice Afternoon Tea experience with all the trimmings. The scones and desserts were tasty and a good range of tea to choose from. The atmosphere was very pleasant and comfortable even with social distancing and masks from the staff, it still felt special for me and my daughter.
Great afternoon tea, provided nut free for me and my daughter. Delicious food and tea. Extra sandwiches, tea and coffee all provided quickly. Lovely friendly staff. Felt very safe as staff wore masks. Tables set apart and not busy. Thank you
Absolutely outstanding. Staff fantastic
Booked for Halloween and Christmas afternoon tea.
It’s not as good as previous visits.we had long waiting times to be served. Sandwiches were dry and crispy as if been left out too long.
We ordered coffee and received a different order to what we ordered. Guys were friendly enough but not great to be honest.
The service was great, lovely food and champagne. Lovely dainty sandwiches, cakes and pastries, the scones were warm and delicious, We stayed for another drink and were given a goody bag to take away with the food that we couldn't manage. It was leisurely and relaxing and would certainly recommend.
Lovely food, polite and helpful service, it was our first time and will be returning 😊
It was nice especially as it was a gift but In comparison with other afternoon teas we’ve had it’s very expensive for a very similar experience.
Loved the Assembly House, they produce top quality food in very smart surroundings, they made us feel very special.
Fabulous as always food top class Service from Jamie amazing as always
It was our wedding anniversary,we had a lovely table outside and had afternoon tea which was amazing. The staff were extremely professional and friendly.
Another lovely afternoon tea at the Assembly House. Definitely recommend.
Love the assembly house, never fails to please .. thank you
First time at Assembly house and can only say it was first class, service and food could not be faulted, will definitely be returning.
Followed COVID health & safety policies
Though windy & 1 brolly blew over just missing a diner
We had a delicious lunch in very pleasant surroundings which felt safe as everyone was at a good distance. The staff who served us were pleasant, friendly and helpful and it was great to be out again enjoying a lovely meal.
Beautiful surroundings, fabulous food. Afternoon tea was a real treat!
Afternoon tea for two! Perfect place for a special treat or occasion. Food delicious and plentiful. Top ups of drink and food at no extra cost, service was friendly and attentive!
Under difficult circumstances, it was a most enjoyable experience... Location delightful. Thank-you!!
The staff are very helpful and take great care to ensure everyone’s safety while dining. Nothing is too much trouble and the food is beautifully cooked and presented.
Good food, shame about the face mask s that had to be worn. Will going back after the virus.
Absolutely lovely... Staff, service, food and surroundings... Can't fault it
We had such a nice time having afternoon tea at the Assembly House. My daughter is six, and it was great that she could have her own version - it was half the price but no less special. A really wonderful memory for us both! And the staff were lovely. Only suggestion I would make is that some background music would have added to the ambience.
An absolute treat to eat at the assembly rooms, service was very welcoming, informative and personal. Food was very good quality with a proper size pot of tea!!
The atmosphere outside was delightful and our server was so attentive. Such a pleasure to be looked after do well.
Excellent food and surroundings,with friendly staff and good service
How very lovely it was to visit The Assembly House for afternoon tea. It was everything we hoped it would be. It was a rare privilege before lockdown and just as special now. Thank you to all the staff. You were brilliant. The food, was creative and we will be coming again❤️
Lovely selection of food on the afternoon tea. The sausage rolls and cheese shortbread biscuit were my particular favourite. The afternoon tea comes on the usual 3 tier rack, at first you may not think it is value for money, but later the waiter brings out scones, jam and cream as well. I brought the cakes home in a box provided. I did not eat again for the rest of the day so as it covered two meals, really it was good value and in a lovely venue. They currently have a one way system in place and socially distanced dining.
