Not impressed at all. The actual experience was not a memorable one.

Hotel is 'tired' and in need of a good clean. The 'tea' experience was no better, with cracked cups (both), cake stand was akin to the leaning tower of Pisa. Not impressed at all. Will not re-visit and will not recommend.

Disappointing
16 April 2019
The place is a nice old building but we were disappointed to be walked through a cosy lounge into an empty cafe type room.when I sat down I noticed a used serviette on the floor next to my chair, not a good first impression. The food was plentiful and the tea pot was topped up. The two members of staff that came to our table were friendly and attentive. When we left we had to wait in reception to pay for a glass of coke....we could have left if we werent so honest...and the chap that eventually emerged was less than pleasant which put the final damper on the experience. The room was cold and there was no ambience to the setting but this could have been due to there being no one else in the place, the food and company in our party of four was good but I think the atmosphere makes an experience too and this was definitely lacking.

Lovely afternoon
09 June 2018
We were warmly welcomed as soon as we got to the hotel by the waitress whonhad set up 2 areas fornthe tea ready and asked us which location we would prefer so we chose the window to look out over the bustling market. Service was quick and we were offered more tea afterwards. A lovely little hotel and a lovely experience. I would recommend!

Centrepiece of a good day out
30 March 2018
We travelled across to Oakham on the train, primarily to enjoy Afternoon Tea at the Whipper-In. Before treating ourselves to this we walked down to Rutland Water and enjoyed some fresh air and lots of interesting birds, plus a look round the ancient church at Egleton. It was a cold, sunny day and by the time we sat down for Tea we were ready for it! The food was good and we had the lounge (and open fire) to ourselves for most of the time, so it was very relaxing. In spite of the fire the room could have been warmer and it was a bit of a thoroughfare between different parts of the hotel, but these are minor points. We would certainly recommend Oakham for a day out and if you are there, make sure you call in at the Whipper-In for tea!

Disappointed
29 January 2018
Booked day before and when we arrived the manager who took the booking had forgotten to put the booking in the diary . So ended up with very chunky sandwiches not the best choice of cake . Nice scone though . Coffee was cold. The duty manager did her best to accommodate us but she was definitely not the best at making sandwiches. Such a shame as another couple having the tea looked much nicer than ours !!

Disappointing
18 September 2017
I as disappointed with this as I've had better afternoon tea for less money. On a positive note the food did taste good. The location was nice and the venue had a nice old charm about it but the service was lacking and the portion was small. I ended up bringing my son along so there was 3 of us, which I notified the venue of in advance. I was told it wouldn't be a problem after asking for another portion but obviously it wasn't enough even through my son only had 1 scone and half a cake. When asked for some more sandwiches I was asked 'How am I paying for it?' And then was offered the normal lunch menu. I wouldn't go there again as it wasn't worth the money and the whole experience was disappointing. I wished I'd gone somewhere else.

Hi there, thanks for your feedback about your experience. I am sorry to hear you didn't fully enjoy the day, as the voucher covers two people for an afternoon tea the venue would not be able to top up the food to accommodate a third person free of charge. If you would like to add additional items to your afternoon tea you are of course welcome to arrange this directly with the staff on the day. I'm pleased you enjoyed the food on the day, I'll make sure the venue are aware of your feedback also.
