    Our tea experience was amazing as always. We were lucky and indeed happy to have Paul as our server once again, always a pleasure. Thank you to Gemma and the rest of the team for their continued kindness in making our birthday tea celebration another satisfying experience. We enjoyed the assorted sandwiches and desserts. Looking forward to our next visit.

    I really thought I would’ve been able to select what I wanted from the list. HATE cucumber and 2 of the items were cucumber. Nice atmosphere and great service but honestly for $300 I could’ve had so much better. Everyone has different taste. Why serve the same thing to everyone cause not everyone will like everything. Some choice should’ve been available. Because of this I’d never recommend or come again!

    Staff was accommodating with regard to our changed time of arrival and also very accommodating regarding our request for alternate seating. Food allergies were noted and accomodated and substitutions were made. The food was fresh and unique. A lovely variety of flavours and foods. Some of the best treats we’ve ever tasted! Somewhat expensive but the experience made up for the cost. All in all a very pleasant experience.

    We enjoyed a wonderful afternoon tea experience. As someone who eats gluten free I am often disappointed by afternoon tea but this was not the case with Clockwork. My food was amazing with lots of gf options. I was very appreciative of the attention given in this regard. It was a wonderful afternoon.

    The quality of the food served during this experience was not up to par, especially considering the price. The tea sandwiches seemed old and the bread was hard and crusty, as if they had been prepared them the night before. It was quite disappointing, as one would expect better food preparation when paying a substantial amount. On a positive note, the service was very pleasant and the presentation was impressive. However, in my opinion, the overall experience was not worth the money.

    Very much enjoyed it, but would point out a couple of issues, which were immediately addressed to our satisfaction. The scones are small. Don't be alarmed. This tea is heavy on the sandwiches and desserts. There is more than enough food, and it's really good. At this price point and at such a grand old hotel, I would have expected real Devon clotted cream for the scones. It isn't. It's vanilla whipped cream. There was a service issue with the scones. The jam, whipped cream and butter were provided without utensils to use to put them on the scones. We ended up using our main knives for the butter, and the tea spoons (thankfully we don't take milk or sugar in our tea) for the jam and cream. Similar issue with one of the desserts on the tea tower - needed a spoon to eat that we had to ask for. Overall, though, it was a great experience and nice venue, and the food was great. The mimosas are also amazing - made with Veuve Cliquot champagne and fresh-squeezed orange juice - yummy!

    We booked clockwork for high tea for a birthday celebration and we were all very impressed - - the atmosphere, food, and service were amazing - - we had a very good time. Extra bonus points as one of our party is vegan and Clockwork delivers a full high tea experience - scones, sandwiches, desserts; all fully vegan so very, very well done to them on that. It's a bit on the pricier side for high tea in the city but well worth it and a recommended overall experience! Will definitely book high tea here again.
