Testimonials: Afternoon Tea
I chose this venue for my friends special birthday because she and her husband had their wedding reception here some years ago. The hotel was beautiful for their summer wedding and the hotel didn’t disappoint on a gloomy autumn afternoon. Very cosy surroundings good food and good choices of tea. The attentive staff were very friendly and it was a very good experience from booking to leaving the hotel. Good value for money and I would not hesitate to recommend this venue.

Took a friend for her birthday to afternoon tea (1st July) and we had such a pleasant experience. Great selection of sandwiches, cakes and savouries and it was plentiful. I was so surprised that they even had de caffeinated tea! Perfect for me! The service was excellent and the staff were welcoming and friendly. I liked the welcome upon arrival to the front door...we were greeted by a pleasant chap who walked us to the Mary Beale restaurant as opposed to just making our own way there...that to me is great customer service and that's what I will remember the most! I would definitely return and would certainly recommend it to friends. The west lodge hotel is stunning with beautiful grounds. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon!

Thank you so much for our mini arboretum tour this afternoon.
We found it fascinating! Your selection of some of your most interesting trees was perfect for us within our time constraints.
At Ingleborough, where we all live, we are privileged to have parkland gardens which we are very proud of. One of our group today - Irene - tends the garden immediately adjoining her flat, and has won gold and silver several times in the Enfield in Bloom competition. So your enthusiastic presentation was very much appreciated by us.
The ladies who didn't walk also enjoyed their relaxing time in the lounge bar. We have decided to return in the Autumn as you suggested!
Once again, thank you very much.
I had a lovely afternoon tea outside on the terrace, a beautiful view whilst enjoying the tea & a glass of prosecco with my 3 girlfriends. The staff were very attentive & really looked after us, it was very relaxing with no time limit on sitting there, it was my birthday & they brought over a beautiful decorated plate with chocolates & fresh fruit - a lovely touch to a wonderful sunny day.
I will definitely be coming back
We went for afternoon tea on Sunday, the service was amazing! My 3 year old daughter has Coeliac Disease so I was worried about cross contamination etc with her food. I did not need to worry at all, Andrew was our waiter and was lovely! He assured me & my party that all the sandwiches were gluten free & had been prepared completely separately, my daughter even got her own GF cakes, her little face was a picture of pure happiness :) thank you so much
West Lodge Park & Andrew, you made our afternoon a relaxed & wonderful experience. We will definitely be back again soon! The pianist was brilliant & played Beauty & The Beast & Frozen for our girl. Beautiful afternoon with fabulous grounds for our two little one's to explore :)) X
