We did afternoon tea followed by dinner later and an overnight stay in the main house. All the food was great, the only problem with the afternoon tea being that we couldn't eat it all but this was easily solved because the staff boxed up the remaining cakes for us to take home to the family. All the food was excellent as it always is and the service of a very high standard. We usually do valentines at Highgate because we can always be sure that we will be happy with the experience. Our son was married at this venue, we often attend their new year celebrations and go for lunch or dinner. The chef is exceptional and the staff cannot do enough for us, what more could we ask.

We were a group of 8 and had a 3 course meal. Everyone really enjoyed their meal. Raj (I think) looked after us really well, he was fantastic and very professional. We will definitely dine here again. Having a round table was really nice so that everyone was included in the conversation.

The service was great as always! Unfortunately we didn't feel that the cakes were as nice as other afternoon tea's that we had been to, the chocolate cake was very dry. Overall it was lovely though x

I have had many Afternoon Teas, but this one was by far the best. The sandwiches were so fresh and the variety and quantity of cakes and pastries was very good. The table was nicely set too.
