I recently purchased a voucher for a Champagne afternoon tea from TravelZoo & took my mum who is in her 80's as a treat. The car park was closed for an 'event' & parking was very difficult. After standing at reception for quite some time we were directed to the bar where we were again kept standing/waiting. A very polite but busy young man said to sit anywhere, but all the tables were either full or not cleared. I cleared a small table myself. Although I had said I was vegetarian when booking 4 of the sandwiches were meat & the other 2 were fish! The scones with jam & cream & the cakes were very nice. The Champagne was ok, but as I was driving I only had a sip! The tea was excellent, hot water was brought when requested & a fresh pot was brought when we finished eating. The service by the young man, who appeared to be manning this busy area on his own, was excellent, he was polite, helpful and apologetic about the delay in service. I have been to events at Craiglands before & did not think this was to their usual high standard
