Views nice. Sandwiches a bit dry, tart not that nice but desserts very nice

High tea at the Burbury is a must! It’s only $50 - much cheaper than the Hyatt or White Rabbit and the cakes and sandwiches were absolutely delightful!

My husband and I enjoyed high tea with a glass of Piper champagne on a Sunday afternoon. Great tea and yummy sweet selection. If you can’t eat everything you are given a box to take your goodies home. The venue is a little noisy but we will return.

Would have proffered more savoury options as well. More dessert options than savoury

We didn’t have a view which was ok but my review may have been better if we had. The bench/ booth I sat on gave me major back pain so ask for a proper chair if you’re going to be sitting for a couple hours. It was also very loud once all the large groups arrived. The high tea was ok, not amazing. Some of the sweet treats were nice but there were only 4 savoury items. The tea got cold very quickly and it would be good to be offered more hot water. The staff were pleasant.

Under staffed and staff assumed we wanted the traditional package when this was not the case

Coffee was very poor - and the service of the tea was not much better. The price of the champagne package was too much - more options required. There were crumbs on two seats from the breakfast service. While some staff were attentive, others were very poor.
