I rarely write a bad review on trip advisor as I feel it impacts on the restaurant concerned but this time I felt it was justified. We organised a family celebration dinner and asked for 2 bottles of champagne to be ready when we arrived at 7.30. no sign of the champagne and no room to sit in the library... More

We came here last week and we could not fault the service provided. My aunt & uncle are over from Australia so we decided to go here for afternoon tea. They were delighted! We were amazed at the selection of cakes, all laid out on a tiered cake stand with sandwiches. We had plenty of clotted cream and jam, and... More

We visited Thornbury Castle for afternoon tea for a birthday celebration and although we were very impressed with the atmosphere and the food, the service really let the experience down and ended up making us feel it was not value for money (despite receiving a discount at the end). We were told that the reason for the poorer service was... More

The surroundings are just beautiful. the restaurant area, the tea/waiting rooms are spectacular and the food is delicious... We have also been for afternoon tea which cannot get any better anywhere else in the west country..

Excellent gardens and the castle itself is amazing although you do cannot see all the rooms. Very pricey for the Henry 8th room where Henry slept with Ann. Only stayed one night. Our room had a fabulous headboard, the most comfortable bed ever. Liked the half decanter of Sherry keeping up with the times. Tea, coffee, hot chocolate in your... More

Bought afternoon tea for my parents for Christmas and also purchased for my elderly Aunt and my Uncle who was visiting for the first time since moving to Oz over 40 years ago. Paid around £90 for all 4 of them. Admittedly my Aunt eats very little so wouldn't have had anywhere near her monies worth, however the four of... More

I can see the castle from my bedroom window but this was my first visit in 15 years. Helped by a lovely day we sat in the garden listening to the birds. A nice selection of sandwiches scones and biscuits. Too much for the 2 of us to eat. Nicely spaced out from other customer. Staff attentive but not in... More
