The afternoon tea was nothing like I was led to believe it would be. Food average and a bit dry. Service was polite but sterile. Dirty cup and wrong teas given. Take home cake not that good. The house felt tired although terraces are lovely. So much could be done with the grounds.

My husband and I spent a child free afternoon celebrating a wedding anniversary with Afternoon Tea. We were fortunate to get a seat on the terrace which was delightful. The food was excellent and of a very high standard. Service could have been quicker but we weren't in a hurry so this didn't really matter. I would highly recommend the... More

Not sure if we stumbled upon a 'groupon' cheap afternoon but the standard was far lower than usual. The bread used for the sandwiches was stale and dry as was the cake taken home in a box. The table wasn't cleared and we literally had to scour the building to find someone to pay. Rather disappointed.

Great service and excellent choice of different teas (and you can have more than one pot). The savouries were excellent as were the cakes. Always offered seconds (pace yourself).

As with the rest of the South Lodge hotel the cream tea was excellent with staff constantly asking if you wanted more of anything, indeed insisted that we take home a box of treats for later enjoyment. Highly recommended to all you won't regret it

This was a high class Afternoon tea in great surroundings [afternoon tea is so popular her that they use 5 different rooms - some not as nice as others - go for a window table overlooking the terrace!] Being an experienced afternoon teaer the main test beside excellent caring service is the 'top up' when the sandwitches/cakes/scones run out is...

Everyone does afternoon tea nowadays - let's face it, it's an excellent money spinner: good profit for limited outlay. However, as a frequent "tea taker" I know not all places do it well - South Lodge does. Plentiful, delicious food - as many "refills" as you'd want, and a vast array of teas to sample. Been twice - always excellent.

I go here at least once a month for Afternoon tea, and also at least every 2-3 weeks for Lunch either during the week or the Sunday roasts. Always been 100% The portions for lunch & dinner are on the small side. The afternoon tea is exceptionally good, sandwiches and cakes are replenished during the experience too.
