Beautiful surroundings and quaint building. The tea was unfortunately very disappointing compared to others we've had. The service although friendly was very slow and the food wasnt create either although they did accommodate gluten free at very short notice. I wouldn't go back which is a shame considering how liveth the setting is. Maybe we were just unlucky.

Easy taxi transfer from Station to Hotel. Friendly greeting and shown to room. My room was in the farmhouse and was very clean and tidy. Floor was uneven which added to the experience. Bathroom clean but shower was slow to warm up. Lever was quite loose and is probably due for upgrade. Pleasant surroundings with nice bar and restaurant. Meals... More

After a four hour drive up from Bristol, which was particularly unpleasant on the M25 and A1, I was very happy to have found the hotel. My room was comfortable although the radiator seems to know only two states: off or very hot. After a drink in the bar and ordering my dinner, I was shown to my table. Service... More

Three of us went to Redcoats for afternoon tea as a treat for my Mum's birthday in September (I'm a little delayed in writing this review). We asked for a nut free version, not due to allergies, just that two of us dislike nuts. This request accommodated without a problem. As it was my Mum's birthday, there were happy birthdays... More

I attended Redcoats for an afternoon tea, there were 25 of us for a baby shower. The food was lovely! Service was ok, could have been a little quicker but they had 100 people in for afternoon tea so I have chosen not to reduce my rating on that basis. I definitely recommend and I will be returning!

We were celebrating a special lady's birthday and decided to have afternoon tea here what a brilliant decision. Beautiful surroundings we were greeted by very welcoming staff who showed us to our table.

Redcoats Farmhouse is very different to your average hotel accomodation. It's several centuries old, with lots of character. Some parts of the main building need a decorative uplift, however, the building is very querky and this adds to the overall charm. The food is good, the breakfasts were very plentiful, freshly cooked and hot... something you don't get in large... More

Had a fabulous afternoon tea in gorgeous surroundings looked after by the wonderful Luis and staff. The staff then let us sit in the pretty hotel grounds, soaking up the last of the summer sunshine, relaxing and taking care of our every need. We were totally spoilt and it was wonderful - thank you.
