The set three course evening menu is good value and the standard was excellent, as was the presentation. I had twice cooked blade of Aberdeen beef which was braised with a rich gravy came with the best creamy mashed potato and fresh vegetables. The chocolate tart with ice cream was delicious. Very busy on a Saturday evening.

Catch up with a friend from work and afternoon tea. We have ordered high tea, and everthing was delicious, especially those scones(i think they bake them fresh to order!) Staff was very friendly and attentive.

I booked afternoon tea for myself and my son. It was his first afternoon tea and was supposed to be a special treat. He put his smartest outfit on and was really excited. When we arrived, there was no table. Not just not one set up, literally no table. Someone had moved it and only the chairs remained. The decor... More

We had high tea one early afternoon while staying at the Harte & Garter. The tea was good, and but the sandwiches seemed prepared to far in advance, despite only being 1 PM. Upon arrival we were relegated to the lounge, despite the restaurant section appearing empty. One large party did fill about a quarter of the restaurant later, but... More

So disappointed. Service was average. If you like to have the television on whilst having an afternoon tea this is the place for you. Tables free with a window view and we were sat by a blank wall?! The high tea was passable at best and very poor value

Really enjoyed having afternoon tea here. It was nice that they had different types of high teas that you could pick from ie champagne tea etc The cakes were light and made well. Staff were attentive and went out of their way to make our visit an enjoyable one.

We enjoyed a lovely relaxed afternoon high tea at this great venue. The service was excellent and the staff friendly and helpful. The sandwiches, scones and cakes were delicious except for the fruit cake which was rather dry. I would recommend booking an afternoon tea to complete a wonderful trip to Windsor Castle.

We visited here for a family lunch and pre booked a table for 6 people. Service was a tad slow but it was pretty busy so we could understand and tried to be patient. The presentation of the food was so quirky and portions were huge it was worth the price. We had a lovely view of Windsor Castle right... More

Good points: Price was reasonable at £19.50 per head plus 10% optional service charge, Sandwiches were traditional and 4 each plus 2 variety of scones each, which were great with cream and jam. Nice atmosphere and view. Bad points: Did not find staff very attentive, service was slow and we had to get a waitresses attention on a few occasions,... More

This place looks lovely from the street and definitely catches swathes of visitors as they leave the castle, but apart from the location and tasty tea treats the rest is dire! The service was inattentive, unfriendly and slow despite the place actually being quiet. The ladies sanitary bins in the toilet cubicles were overflowing with sanitary products. Half the wash...
