    Really nice welcoming staff, very friendly and helpful. made myself and my guests feel welcome. the staff found out a party at our table was expecting a child and they put together a very lovely "congratulations" cake it was very lovely and nice and the staff to go to the effort. I will defiantly be coming back again :)

    We took advantage of the Eclectic Star Deal £18.50. Excellent value for money. Alcohol was extra if required. Good selection of sandwiches and cakes, and the lightest scones with jam and clotted cream. Tea was topped up if required. Lovely staff efficient and not intrusive. It was a birthday celebration and I was surprised with a happy birthday slate and some rocky road from the hotel. How lovely. We were seated in the Oyster Bar which was a lovely lounge area, quiet, restful, and had a calming ambience. Delightful.

    Food was delicious and included a roll as well as white and brown sandwiches. Excellent selection of cakes with, of course, scones, jam and clotted cream. I was disappointed, however, that amongst the selection of teas there was no Darjeeling. This is something I have never experienced before when having afternoon tea.

    Food was Okay, sandwich’s interesting, cake claggy and stuck to your mouth. Too fancy, and not tasty. Flipping lady that was supposed to look after us was never there for ordering extra tea and coffee, but when the shift changed the other waitress was lovely and very attentive

    Lovely afternoon tea experience for Fathers Day. Politely greeted at the front desk and guided to our table upstairs in a quiet private area. Smashing food on the Gentleman’s afternoon tea, nice and warm and very filling. Plenty of tea to drink with regular replenishment. Definitely recommended.

    Not up to the standard I expected. Service was poor- we had to go down and ask the waitress for milk with the tea, then she didn’t bring one pot of tea up. Sandwiches were nice but the dessert selection was dull. I’d sent a note to the hotel when I booked dating I was allergic to chocolate- my afternoon tea still arrived with a chocolate profiterole. The jam with the scones tasted very cheap. I wish I’d booked the Midland instead as we were just put on the mezzanine and forgotten about. Not worth the price charged.

    Great service & excellent selections on both the traditional & gentleman's afternoon tea.A wide range of (bottomless) teas & coffees too. We opted for the champagne upgrade & had cocktails later.
    I thought that it was a bit pricey for the four of us as later that evening, the same four of us ate two courses with wine & beer at a nearby Italian restaurant for £70 less. Having said that, it's a special venue with nostalgic value for three of us. We used to visit when it was the Old School pub in our Granada days.
    I'd visit again.
