This was a private function to meet a variety of ages (40s - 90s). Very accessible, great catering and the owner gave us a very informative talk on the history and restoration of Warwick House

We arranged a high tea for our guests as a pre-wedding activity. (Approx 25 people) All guests were very happy. The food was lovely, the service friendly and diligent. Host looked the part in formal top hat and tails. It's was a stunning venue with a lovely view of the city and cosy atmosphere. We loved it and would thoroughly... More

A rip off at $25. Service non-existent, the 'host' spent more time chatting to the staff. The green tea and red bush tea were served out of varying sized and patterned pots with the "Bombay Black" poured out of an/a aluminium/stainless steel tea pot similar to those used at community functions and in boarding houses and schools. The home baked... More

We booked for tea as part of Nelson heritage week. It was FANTASTIC and offered something unique and special. The food was lovely, the setting amazing and the hosts knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. They dealt with a very difficult member of the public (not one of our party) with grace and dignity and did everything to fix the perceived problem.... More

It is a lot of work for us to set up for a special occasion like this and the bake everything from 'scratch' in the days before hand. We are available for group bookings for High Tea and sometimes have... More

Thank you for the kind comments. It was nice to have a live pianist for the afternoon High Tea, We always try to give the young students from the Nelson School of Music the chance to come and play at our High Teas. We often hold themed High Teas' such as 'Mad Hatters tea. or a 'Downtown Abbey theme tea.... More

We were so disappointed we paid and left after 25 minutes. A Victorian afternoon tea was promised and as it was Valentines Day we decided to be 'romatintic' and take advantage. The room consisted of tables that were shared. One pot of tea each (no refill offered) tiny scones, tiny biscuits and a savoury that was indescribable. The pianist was... More

We are sorry to hear that these guests didn't enjoy their experience, however we do remember that they arrived before the High Tea was actually due to start and before the regular pianist arrived. Refills for the various fresh teas are always available - on request - or once guests have been seated for a period of time. Fresh biscuits,... More
