“Afternoon Tea”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Just arrived home from one of our trips to Chatsworth, beautiful scenery, intending to eat there as usual, decide on the champagne afternoon tea, one of my great pleasures in my life, I was not to be dissapointed, beautiful champagne in a beautiful glass, a very relaxed atmosphere,very pleasant young staff, extra sandwiches if reqiured, the right ammount of cakes and cream scones, perfect tea not a tea bag in sight. Can't wait for the next time.

Reviewed 27 May 2014

Myself, my wife and our young daughter all had afternoon tea here, it was very nice all made freshly i especially liked the cakes even if as some reviewers say they were bought in, tasted homemade to me. we love coming to Chatsworth and try to have a bit of something to eat here. The service was very good no complaints. we shall be back.

“Good food, lovely venue”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

A lovely place to call in for a bite when you are travelling through the grounds around Chatsworth. I never tire of the views and Chatsworth is such a beautiful and majestic house, who needs an excuse to visit. Food is consistently good in fabulous surroundings. What more would you ask?

“Afternoon Tea”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

We visited Chatsworth House on a sunny April afternoon. We decided to visit the Cavendish Restaurant for afternoon tea. The surroundings were elegant and we were served promptly. The food was good quality and the sandwiches were quickly replenished. A lovely afternoon treat.

“uninspiring afternoon tea”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

We had afternoon tea in the restaurant, having walked around the house. The tea itself was fairly disappointing - the cucumber sandwiches had thick cheddar cheese in (which neither of us particularly liked), the other sandwiches were nothing special. The scones and cakes are clearly bought in. The scones were nice, but the cakes were extremely disappointing and tasteless. That said, the tea selection of loose teas was very good and the service was friendly.
