This is an experience not to be misses - this time we had High Tea. Food and service were excellent. As is the norm, we could not eat all the goodies so they box them to allow us to eat later....much later!!!!! Highly recommended -...lovely treat and not to be missed.More

We had the most enjoyable experience in a beautiful setting. A fabulous choice of 4 savoury treats, eight different cakes, scones and a devine rhubarb trifle. The staff were so kind and attentive and really seemed as if they wanted us to have a real...treat. They were careful to enquire about any food intolerances which made me feel at ease mentioning mine (rather than other places where it is almost an inconvenience). Top marks all round.More

The room and setting for afternoon tea was well set out, comfortable and relaxing. The staff were friendly and attentive even with social distancing and masks. The best bit was the afternoon tea itself which was superb. All dietary considerations were easily requested and there...was no delay in any of the service. Would return again without hesitation.More

It’s been almost a year since our last visit (which is far too long), but yet another amazing and scrumptious afternoon tea. Very special thanks to Patrick again for his excellent service and joy to talk to. We have tried a lot of afternoon teas...around the midlands and this is by far the best of them all.More

This is definitely the best place to have afternoon tea. Everything is perfect. The warm sausage rolls are to die for! However I do wish there were less cheese savoury items but will ask next time if this can be accommodated. Atmosphere is lovely, the...staff very helpful and knowledgable. We’ll be back for our annual Christmas tea :)More

Had a delicious High Tea at the Angel Hotel. A fantastic selection of sandwiches, savouries and cakes and not forgetting the strawberries and scone to finish too. Lovely surroundings with the staff being very friendly and professional. A great selection of teas on offer (or...coffee), in what was a superb way to spend a couple of hours indulging. Would definitely recommend and can’t wait to go back!More

An excellent selection of sandwiches, savouries and cakes with endless supplies of tea and coffee - the Angel Afternoon blend tea was lovely. This is the second time we have been and again I was given a voucher for High Tea for 2. I did...however feel this time a bit of a “second class citizen” on entering the restaurant as the head waiter insisted I hand over my voucher before sitting down. This was not done in any way discreetly and no-one even offered to take our coats which we were left to hang on the back of our chairs. The staff were very tentative to us throughout but when we were ready to leave, no-one asked us if we had enjoyed our afternoon tea experience or even say good bye. We just walked out of the restaurant, through the hotel lobby and out into the street.More

Seriously excellent High Tea this afternoon. An afternoon delight - almost as good as s3x, this made a fantastic birthday treat. Nice room, attentive and courteous staff. And phenomenal vegan treats. The difference between their "Afternoon Tea" and "High Tea" is just £5 per person...but the warm savoury items they serve for the extra are the highlight of the meal and worth IMO twice the price. A samosa in the most delicate pastry with rice noodles, an arancini ball, some bouchees with (?) tapanarde and sweet chilli, and a crostini piled high with avocado and tomato. Such skillful cooking. It scarcely needs adding that the sandwiches were very good; the scones lovely; the chocolate cake dreamy (and an extra portion with Happy Birthday iced onto the plate) and a fine range of teas. The sweets that we could manage were placed in a beautiful doggy bag - we look forward to enjoying them tomorrow. I'll be happy to share how good this was on Vegan Facebook groups. Bravo.More

We have been here before and the standard of service and quality of the food ,a well lit dining room beautifully laid out,but one thing marred this event was the sight of people’s coats slung over the back of the chairs,why oh why don’t the...staff take them away,I know the staff ask and the customers say we’ll put them on the chairs but it really spoils the occasion and looks like a cluttered fish & chip shop, pity really.More
