Booking service all good, good attention to our requirements. Lovely restaurant, bit slow when we first got there, no-one at the front desk. The meal was a fantastic experience, food was amazing, different tastes and ingredients from the estate, the cards were a nice touch. A very good dining experience. Lamb dish was my favourite. My husband wasn't so sure about the background music but others in our party liked it!
A fantastic afternoon tea in an elegant dining room with chandeliers and comfy seating. I loved the tea cups it made it feel more luxury. The service was great and what really stands out is the afternoon tea itself. I opted for the poached eggs with smoked salmon as opposed to finger sandwiches and it was divine. Everything we ate was absolutely delicious both savoury and sweet cakes I couldn’t tell you exactly what was in them but beautifully decorated and heaven for your palate. I will definitely be returning. Can’t recommend highly enough
Went for Afternoon Tea and everything was lovely. I like the fact that the tea is infused for you so that your pot doesn’t stew. The savouries, scones and pastries were all lovely. Needless to say we couldn’t eat it all but they are happy to box up whatever you can’t manage. My hubby has allergies so they changed his food to reflect that which was very well communicated to all the staff we came in contact with. This was great as our experience elsewhere is often not so good.
We were two of 5 diners which meant atmosphere was a little dull. However, each and every dish was exquisite. Staff were friendly and knowledgable and all courses were explained to us along with details of where ingredients were foraged on the estate. The experience was fantastic. A cheese course was offered before desserts but not included which was a little OTT both in terms of expense and gluttony!! Wine by the glass at roughly £12.50 a little pricey too. On the whole highly recommended. Note:Not for the fussy eater.
Amazing experience! Highly recommended
The afternoon tea was top end, exquisite food. Maybe too biased towards the sweet treats, would have preferred more savoury. Choice of teas was excellent. Waitresses were very attentive. Entrance to the grounds was included which was great. Ten out of ten for the staff at the ticket office for their knowledge and helpfulness. On the downside there were people complaining about something at the next table during the tea - the frank exchange of views with the manageress should have been taken outside as any ambience was completely ruined. Would have preferred not to have been addressed as "you guys" repeatedly by the waitresses. Fizz was nothing special at £10 a go, might even have been corked. Tasted like very old cava. Overall an average experience and really a bit over-priced.
The afternoon tea is excellent ( includes entry to gardens) this is my second visit and food was excellent as before but I thought the service was lacking- not very attentive or refined - unlike my first visit. As they add 12.5% service charge I’m not sure it warranted the extra money added onto the bill. Maybe I should have declined to pay it but I’m too stupidly polite!
Afternoon Tea The cakes and the sevice were excellent. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Lovely atmosphere.
The only critism we could make was the computer controlled piano. A beautiful piano like that deserves to have a pianist. The robotic manner in which it played became annoying.
his was my second visit to Interlude and I was excited to experience Chef Jean Delport’s magnificent creations again!
We had our first course on the terrace, vines have been planted since our last visit and the feel was stunning, we felt like we were abroad.
The service as before was impeccable, the staff have great knowledge of the dishes and the areas of the estate that each dish is foraged from.
The different combinations of textures and tastes were an assault on the senses.
We washed the courses down with some Leonardslee Gin and a couple of different reds from the Benguela Cove selections.
Another great meal and a great dining experience!
You might even see a wallaby if you’re lucky!
We would highly recommend Restaurant Interlude.
Lovely room. Well presented Afternoon Tea. So much food we had to take some home. Lovely for a special occasion.
