Offering one of Manchester’s grandest dining experiences, afternoon tea at The Midland Hotel is a lavish occasion. In the plush Octagon Lounge, enjoy tea surrounded by sleek pillars, corniced ceilings and lavish drapes.

The Midland afternoon tea menu perfectly matches the splendour of this luxury hotel. Alongside fine teas, freshly brewed coffees and flutes of chilled champagne, indulge in finely cut finger sandwiches, homemade cakes and fresh, warm scones with delicious preserves.

The Octagon Lounge in Manchester also offers a range of light meals, speciality sandwiches and cakes, served from morning until late.

A 4-star hotel in Manchester established in 1903, The Midland is one of the city’s most iconic destinations. Manchester Oxford Road Train Station is a 6-minute walk away.

    I came to celebrate my friends 70th birthday , we have been before but were a little disappointed this time. The scones are usually served warm when we are ready . The tray restricted our view of each other we had to keep bobbing around to see each other . The staff were excellent as usual , we all prefer the usual traditional trays the food is served on I did e mail the hotel the day after our visit but did not hear any feedback.

    I absolutely loved the whole afternoon tea experience. The Octagonal space provided an oasis of calmness and relaxation in the centre of Manchester. An excellent menu alongside superb service left me wanting to come back to repeat the experience.

    Very enjoyable but the quality of the sandwiches was very disappointing. The overall tea was not up to the standard served at M&S.

    Proper clotted cream and generous. Loved the 'doggy' box.

    My fourth afternoon tea experience here. Excellent service as ever, and a relaxing ambience. The small choux buns deserve particular praise and the Midland tea blend was a perfect complement.
