“Afternoon Tea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

We've visited here for the past 3 years for my Grandmothers' birthday. The staff are extremely friendly and professional. The castle itself is beautiful inside and out. Log fires burning with a cup of tea, delicious food and great company - what more could you want?

“Champagne Tea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

We had a friendly welcome to Thornbury Castle which is recently under new management. All for the better.
The champagne tea was delicious with masses of cakes and scones, strawberry jam and clotted cream. A great treat,
