Lovely food, friendly staff, good service & lovely venue. Only thing I think could be improved would be more choice for children. Perhaps afternoon tea with cake rather than scone :) But would recommend so you can see the lovely venue.

    Very slow service waited over one hour for Afternoon Tea ! Had to ask staff to take order and when we would receive order ! Could be lovely if staff were more organised. Can't fault food very fresh when it did arrive

    HAVING BOOKED LUNCH WE WERE SEATED ROGHT AT THE BACK OF THE RESTAURANT WHICH WAS, AT 12MD , COLD AND WE HAD TO KEEP OUR COATS ON.
    WE WERE EXPECTING TO OEDER A HOT MEAL, BUT THIS WASN'T AVAILABLE. WE ORDERED MUSHROOM SOUP AND HOT SANDWICHES/ BAKED POTATO/.
    THE SOUP WAS UNPLEASANT BUT AS WE KNOW THE PLAZA IS RUN BY VOLUNTEERS WHOM WE TRY AND SUPPORT , WE DID NOT COMPLAIN THOUGH MENTIONED IT AS WE PAID THE BILL.

    We went here prior to seeing the pantomine in the theatre. We was shown to our table and from the moment we sat down we received the best customer service. The food was very good and even our three year old granddaughter had her own little afternoon tea. The decor and atmosphere was superb and the background piano made it feel that little bit more special like being in a top hotel or on a cruise ship. The Plaza is well worth a visit. I have read some negative reviews but all can offer is an excellent review. Well done and thank you to all the staff and volunteers that made our day excellent. I will certainly be returning vey soon.

    We had a party of six booked but two were early. The staff member wanted them to wait while everyone arrived, but they wanted a brew while they waited. So they took the order but for some reason they didn't bring out the drinks until the rest of us arrived 40 mins later! By which time they no longer wanted the drinks because they would be eating! It was very busy at first, the food was lovely although I expected to get something like a homemade cake on the plaza afternoon tea instead of a shop bought angel cake. The music was of the era i think but we could barely hear it. We all loved this place with its original art deco features and had a lovely afternoon. I think value for money goes to the club sandwich it was huge!

    The Plaza is wonderful! Friends over from the Wirral had especially requested a lunch time visit to the Plaza, and none of us were disappointed. The surroundings are just perfect for vintage lovers. And the Old Tom Team I had was out of this world. The service was excellent, even though some of the people serving were volunteers.

    This was our second visit to the plaza. Not quite as good as the first time, service was a little slow and our request for a second pot of tea took so long that we asked forthe bill. Despitethis we enjoyed the afternoon tea and wouldgo again.

    We had a wonderful experience and loved every minute. Upon entering the Plaza we were greeted with a warm welcome and directed to the cafe where we were again warmly welcomed and shown to our reserved table. Having studied the extensive menu a very chatty and knowledgeable lady took our order.

    Whilst waiting for our food and drink we sat admiring the setting and splendour of the cafe.

    The food and drink was excellent as was the service.

    The time in the cafe flew by too quickly.

    We look forward to returning for another great experience.

    We had Afternoon Tea for 4 people. All as expected apart from the cake selection, which we presumed was due to the festive time of year, which all contained currants (mince pies, stollen, etc..). 2 of our party did not like currants but when we pointed this out, the waitress did arrange for a different selection which were the same cake cut in a different way! Apart from this, we did enjoy our visit and will return. The cafe is absolutely charming and we all loved the decor and service.
