We hadn't visited the hotel for about 20 years and took refuge due to the poor weather. we initially enjoyed a drink by the log fire and then had a super dinner in the conservatory. The food was excellent and the staff were extremely attentive.

We have wanted to visit Chatsworth House for a long time, so we thought we would make it special with the Cavendish Afternoon Tea. Staff were very attentive even though we were half an hour before our allotted time. Range of teas on offer or a choice of coffees, the champagne was delicious and nicely chilled on a surprisingly hot... More

Lovely setting, wasn't too busy. We had booked afternoon tea and weren't disappointed. Staff welcoming and attentive. Facilities spotless. Downside is that it isn't the cheapest of places to pop into but worth a visit.

Booked a table for two last Saturday and thoroughly enjoyed our selection from the 2 course set menu (2 options) service was second to none from very curteous waiting staff. Tip book online saves you paying the £3 parking fee

My mum had pre booked afternoon tea at the Cavendish rooms for my 30th birthday. The range of sandwiches and desserts was very good and the quality was very good. We had tea, coffee and some champagne. The rooms themselves are lovely, the glass walls means that the room is bright and if you like people watching like I do,... More

I am looking at this from a vegetarians point of view when you can't always get a good meal out but you can here. . You do normally have to queue but it is worth the wait. The cafe it's self is very pleasant. So it's a win win really. Excellent service as well.

I only enjoyed a coffee in the adorable lounge whilst my husband Tim needed time with a client. We run a men's bespoke tailoring business just around the corner however so looking forward to spend longer here in future and try out much more than just a coffee. Very attentive and professional staff in such elegant surroundings. Gorgeous ladies powder... More

What a wonderful afternoon tea we were served with by the staff at chatsworth. The food was excellent, within a lovely setting and staff that made the afternoon a delight. Although some may find it pricey, £25per head, I think it would be more reasonable on an ordinary day, we did go Feb 14th. Try it.
