    Lovely dining experience in beautiful surroundings. We ordered three different types of afternoon tea and could not fault the food, it was delicious. Steven and Kinga were the perfect hosts and a credit to the team. Well done guys, we'll be visiting again soon!

    Great John Street is a lovely intimate boutique-style hotel and I would definitely a visit. We enjoyed afternoon tea in the cosy lounge area on comfy sofas - a welcome escape Manchester’s cold, wet, and windy February weather. I was delighted to discover the afternoon tea hot drinks’ menu includes unlimited hot chocolate!

    We had a gentleman's and a lady's afternoon tea with a glass of champagne. Everything was delightful. The food was delicious, the service was attentive but not obtrusive and the ambience was extremely relaxing. I will definitely be back!
