“Very Grand”

The Great Hall at Boringdon Hall
Ranked #20 of 27 Restaurants in Plympton
Restaurant details
Reviewed 2 April 2018

Very Grand hall with lots of charm & a great bar. The bar man knows all about Gin In Tonic with zest of any fruit you like. If a member of staff lights the fire stand back as there's often a blowback that filled the hall with smoke & has the diners on the balcony coughing. Goes great with the smoked haddock.Had a great time.

We had lovely pre-dinner drinks, great location, great service.

I would have given 5* but it was a little cold, but to be fair it’s a vast hall and the heat from the fire does tend to be lost into the vary high roof space.

Perhaps a self-closer on the main hotel door might help. Its only a minor niggle wonderful space for pre-dinner drinks or a snack.

We spend a fair bit of time on the look out for decent afternoon teas, with an almost equal balance between an impressive or period setting and a delicate tasty and well presented assembly of the classic componants occasionally with a contemporary take. When we came to Boringdon Hall back in November partly to check the place out but also to experience the Spa and have a good supper on that raised balcony, we also tried the A/T. Just under £30 without the turbo extras. Not really very satisfying or value. Our experience was very much like that of the earlier trailblazing reviewer. A real let down and poor value. Frankly it is difficult to get a good afternoon tea in Plymouth, a lot though not this one are geared towards ladies of a certain age with time on their hands or underperforming vamps who need fizz and some carbs to soak it up. Maybe the Boringdon formula has improved since November. For us it was a let down but that's no reason at all to discourage others from testing it out.

We didn't work up enough enthusiasm to take any touristy forensic pix of the food.

Took my husband to this restaurant for afternoon tea as a birthday treat. Disappointing food selections and service was pretty slow. We have two finger sandwiches each, two scones, ok they were quite big and 6 small fancies, one of which was a piece of xmas cake which was so dry it was awful. At £29.95 per person you would have expected something really special but it certainly wasn't. Then to add insult to injury a service charge was automatically added to the bill and I wasn't given the opportunity to remove it which was poor.
