My friends and I had the best time at Rubens. The staff were incredibly attentive, friendly and helpful. Shout out to poor Mo who we mobbed as we left and insisted he had photo's with us. The hotel itself is beautiful and you feel very special once you have visited. Food was delicious too. Oh and i had a special treat as it was my birthday so I felt very spoilt. Thank you Rubens team.

Great gift - fabulous afternoon tea experience. And buyagift allowed us to change the expiry date of our voucher twice because of the pandemic which was very good of them.

A very special treat. The staff were lovely and the tea itself was imaginative. Pleased to be given a doggy bag to take home what we couldn’t manage. Loved the Apple jam with the scones and the extra sandwiches

We loved our Festive Afternoon Tea at The Rubens at The Palace! The service was excellent, the quality of the food and the flavours were amazing. Everything was delicious and the attention to detail was top notch. Covid protocols were in place so we felt safe to relax and enjoy our treat. Worth every penny. We are already planning a return visit.
