“Better than the Ritz high tea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Thank you Origins for the most amazing high tea I have ever had! Better than the Ritz, F&M, Dorchester, Raffles in Singapore - anywhere. Completely catered for Gluten free and didn't feel like I was missing out at all. LOTS of free flowing champaigne, great knowledge of teas, beautiful restaurant. amazing staff, good coffee. Can't recommend it enough! Definatley a place to go for a special occation as well as something nice to do. Really reasonable priced too and so much different food - lamb kofta - AMAZEBALLS!

“Should be so much better”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

On a business trip, felt like a nice steak for dinner so headed to the hotel restaurant. Alarm bells rang when the bread was brought to the table and it had obviously been microwaved to heat up. Fine at pubs, but not good at a 'fine dining' restaurant. No wonder there was only one other table there. Shame, because the setting, ambience, and surroundings are nice. My steak arrived and it's never a good look when there is blood rolling around the plate. I asked for medium rare (which it was), but it's an amateur error to plate the steak before the blood has settled. It looked bad. The garden salad with balsamic was missing the balsamic. For the price, you really expect more. It felt like there were contestants from My Kitchen Rules in the kitchen, as opposed to 'fine dining' chefs. Would I go back? No. Sorry!

“Experimenting with presentation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Tantalizing food and pleasant poolside atmosphere.

Superb entree. Good steak - but almost no vegetables (without havingto order another side dish). Brulee dessert was classy indeed. Coffee & choice average & limited.

Overall - a little less than anticipated for a 5 star establishment.

“High Tea Celebration”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Origins has an amazing High Tea menu.I chose this venue for my 50th birthday celebration with about 20 friends after comparing all the high tea menus around town.The food was definitely more special than the usual fare.Champagne was offered immediately as we got ourselves settled in and were appreciating the elegant surroundings.Tea preferences were taken and the afternoon celebration began.The balance between savoury and sweet was perfect, as were all the choices of pots of tea.Service was outstanding but discreet and staff were constantly offering fresh tea to keep us going as we worked our way through the gourmet afternoon tea treats.We were never rushed and the restaurant was not crowded and noisy like some other places I have been. The venue was elegant and classy but private and I thoroughly encourage all High Tea Lovers to put this venue on the "must go" list
