    The place is cozy and the furniture style is classic modern. The food so delicious and the presentation amazing. Erika, who serve the afternoon tea for us, was generous and friendly with me and my kids. The tea was good, however I prefer to have a leaf tea than bag tea. Also, it would be better if the table bigger and wider. I definitely going to comeback again and even invite my friends to this lovely place. Xx

    Our G and Tea Afternoon Tea at The Great John Street hotel was a delight from start to finish. The overall ambience is just right, it feels special as soon as you walk through the door. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, the gin cocktails were delicious and served in glass teapots with fresh flowers and fruit. The savoury food was presented well and portions generous. The sweet selection was absolutely beautiful with a well balanced and interesting selection of flavours. There was four in our party and we all thought it was superb. We were asked on several occasions if we wanted more tea but as we were given such generous servings none of us needed more. This is definitely an experience to repeat!
