Good experience on a busy day. Good serving sizes and responsive communication.
The staff were very friendly and welcoming especially the head chef. Great and very tasty food and beverages. Scones in particular. Will definitely comeback.
Our recent high tea experience was very disappointing. The food was average - stale bread, cold pancakes, rock hard scones and generally uninspiring food. The building itself is beautiful so it is a shame the food was such poor quality.
They only have teaset instead of lunch menu as advertise.. very disappointed and i need to have teaset for lunch.. they should not advertise lunch menu if they dont provide it
Interior needs attention as atmosphere is depressing with paint coming off the ceilings and smudges on walls. Recommend adding tea descriptions to the menu, especially as waitress could not assist with helping us find which tea would appeal. Instructions would be helpful on arrival or on the menu as to how high tea works, as it was unclear whether dishes needed to be chosen or if all would be included. Strongly recommend placing computer/till in a more hidden location, and tidying up that room by placing teas and teapots etc in typical cabinets for the Victorian period, to match the successful exterior. Excellent to have parking and pleasant music. Atmosphere in the right of the home was better than the left, as couldn't see all the exposed dishes etc. Consider a fresh paint colour which shows off the skirting boards and other features. Food was good, especially the mousses like the mango passionfruit dessert, as well as the scones.
Relaxing music and retro interior create great environment for enjoying high tea treats. Rich selection of teas will satisfy any taste. It was an excellent experience which I look forward to repeating in the future.
Very tasty scones and great tea selection.
Great service, atmosphere and food.
A beautiful venue on beautiful grounds, rich with local history. I know it's famous for its high tea, but we really loved our weekend lunch. And the staff were charming too.
We went for the Fathers Day special three course meal.. and it was sensational! Food was perfect, service was very kind and the venue is as beautiful as always. The only let down was the coffee after lunch.. but apart from that a lovely afternoon for Dad. Well done.
Thanks Malcom, glad you enjoyed everything.
Food was lovely though service was slow
The High Tea was beautifully presented and the food was excellent. Unfortunately the hot food and the tea was luke warm. Otherwise we had an enjoyable afternoon.
Food was lovely but the service left a lot to be desired! No one came to our table to ask if we wanted anything further during the time we were there. We had to call the girl over a few times, asking for more hot water for our tea. Then within half an hour of being there, the guy started vacuuming around us. Not a little bit, the whole bottom level. We were a party of 6 and could hardly hear ourselves talking. Couldn’t believe we paid $55 for my daughters bday high tea and we had vacuuming for 10min. Not the sort of place I would have imagined this to happen. Very disappointed!
Hi Melissa. With regards to your service generally speaking after the stands have been delivered the staff will usually only pop back and top up waters and wines. We only refill teapots on request not as a point of service. Having said that I will remind the staff to ensure they do pop back and check that everything is okay at the tables rather than having to be be called over. I was 'the guy' who was vaccumming the tables in your vicinity on the day. Sorry you found our Dyson stick vac so intrusive but every other table around you had just left simultaneously from the early seating and there was a lot of scone crumbs and detrius on the floor which had to be cleaned up for the next tables arriving. The Dyson is the most efficient, effective and hygenic means of maintaining the cleanliness of our restaurant floor for the enjoyment of everyone. We hope to see you again another time, perhaps on a quieter day when you can truly enjoy the lovely ambience of Bornia House. If you would like to rebook anytime soon please let me know and I will personally bring your table a bottle of complimentary sparkling wine for the afternoon.
Great service and lovely high tea
Lovely experience. Very expensive for what it was.
For a special outing with my niece, Boronia House was a lovely choice. The food was creative enough to avoid being utterly dull, but not wacky. Gorgeous room, cups and accessories. The Devonshire Tea was quite filling, and more than we needed.
We had a lovely time celebrating my sister's 70th birthday. Everything was excellent.
We had a server who didn't understand English. The staff were too keen to clear us all out by 4.20pm even though our timed slot was to remain until 5pm.
Our little party of 3 had a lovely High Tea at Boronia House last Saturday. The atmosphere and venue is delightfully surrounded by elegant gardens. One improvement might be to have cushions available to make the hard, Un-upholstered chairs more comfortable. I would also like to be offered unlimited tea and coffee as part of the $55 High Tea. The waitresses were very sweet and did their best to make our visit enjoyable. All in all it was a nice experience. Thanks
It was a lovely atmosphere, the food was delicious

Historic High Tea...
The tradition of high tea continues at historic Boronia House, a colonial mansion situated in the manicured gardens of Reservoir Park, Mosman. It’s an elegant place in which to relax and wistfully reminisce over a bygone era.
Keen tea drinkers will be pleased with the good range of T2 green, black and herbal loose-leaf teas. And those after a light tipple can indulge in a glass of Moet, Chandon, sparkling wine or even a cocktail. High tea arrives on a three-tiered stand laden with sweet and savoury delights. This venue is the pinnacle of refined and sophisticated entertainment - come and see for yourself.
