I booked afternoon for my friend's birthday. I have been to many hotels for afternoon tea so knew what to expect, it was my friends first experience.

Went with 5 of us. Had to get the menus ourselves. Scones OK. Sandwiches underwhelming. Service really missing in action. Yes, lovely grounds but that £16 tea & scones was hugely over priced. Management needs to lift their game.

Beautiful house and gardens with a lovely terrace for drinks or afternoon tea. We booked for 10 of us to go for afternoon tea... straight from work on a lovely sunny friday. We ate in the Orangery which is a lovely setting. The whole experience was spolit due to the very poor service we received. The staff were very slow... More

Superb location with delightful grounds to wander in. A large terrace for pre lunch drinks. Very attentive staff. We ate in the Orangery which is lovely but could be very hot on a really hot day. Whilst the starter came reasonably quickly we waited 50 minutes for the mains and this only after some reminders to the staff. This after... More

I was really nervous taking my goddaughter today having read some previous reviews. However, I'm glad that I stuck with the booking as we had the most fabulous lunch and the service and attention to detail was excellent. Superb spicy crayfish cocktail and Mushroom on toast to start, really tasty smoked haddock with perfectly cooked poached egg and warm new... More

We visited Danesfield House for a birthday meal with our children and their partners. Having had afternoon tea here before I requested at this special meal we have a table in the restaurant. After champagne and cocktails in the bar we were shown to our table which was perfect. Service and food cannot be faulted. We had a lovely relaxed... More

This place has always tried to appeal the rich. Indeed it has an ideal location to do this - between the super rich towns of Marlow and Henley. Unfortunately it has gone bust at least twice in the last decade. It now boasts a Michelin (1 star) chef, and is trying to re-invent itself as a venue strictly for rich... More

Lovely place to have afternoon tea. A magnificent country house hotel with beautiful grounds & far reaching views over the Thames. The afternoon tea was delicious & the service was very good. The choice of teas was good & top ups were plentiful. Would definitely recommend this as a special treat.

An evening out at the Danesfield House for dinner on a lovely spring evening, great location, excellent food, good selection of wines, not too pricy what more could one want I hear you say. We are used to dining at very nice places but the service and the ambience left much to be desired. Trying to get wine when we... More

This is a magnificent property, currently undergoing refurbishment. There are spectacular views over the surrounding countryside and the building itself is magnificent. We went for a two course lunch and the food was very, very good. There was a nicely balance yet varied lunch menu with the choice of two or three courses, very reasonably priced. Most enjoyable and highly... More
