We had a lovely time here yesterday. We were seated in the library which was very "oldey worldy". The staff were pleasant & friendly & couldn't do enough for you. I would definitely return. The afternoon tea was delicious.

Customer reviews for Afternoon Tea at Great John Street Hotel
(((** 28 May 2017 by Beverly Richardson from Manchester
Afternoon tea was very high standard. Staff were unaware I had requested bubbles with afternoon tea. Not sure why asked if special occasion as there was nothing different. I was with friends from uni we met 24 yrs ago & it was 12 yrs since all been together. One from Norwich & another from NZ. Sat near the bar which was bit noisy as next to kitchen & bar area where staff were chatting. Cupboard next to our table was entered 3xs for extra bottles of alcohol. Would have preferred better seating area. Staff ok though not v attentive as had 2 wedding parties. So overall just disappointed with everything except the food.

Didn't clear plates away and when desert/scones game plates with left over food were still around.
Also didn't have a menu for the afternoon tea and we had brought guests as a surprise

Quite disappointed overall, the afternoon tea itself was average, the cakes looked impressive but lacked flavour, sandwiches were adequate, the bread was slightly stale suggesting that they weren't freshly made. The service was very poor, Despite being fairly quiet when we visited and having lots of staff walking around it took 20 minutes for our drink order to be taken, there was quite a long delay for the food to be delivered. When we had finished we asked twice for the bill and after another lengthy wait ended up having pay at the bar.

Afternoon tea was lovely. Great sandwiches (except the smoked salmon which were odd) and lovely cakes. Good wine selection. Pleasant staff although could have been a little quicker with service. Will definitely visit again

A perfect place for afternoon tea. Comfortable sofas and chairs, attentive staff, a varied choice of teas, yummy sandwiches and absolutely amazing cakes and scones.

We ordered the afternoon tea and were fortunate enough to be seated on the roof terrace, which was beautiful as the sun was shining. The food was lovely and the hospitality second to none.

Hello. I really enjoyed my visit to Great john street. The staff where very polite, friendly, professional, but also created a relaxed welcoming atmosphere. I am vegetarian and the waitress was very accommodating and thoroughly explained all the sandwiches and cake options. Service was not rushed. I would most definitely come again and recommend to family and friends

It was good overall but the selection was not as good as it was 5 years. Not the best afternoon tea I had in Manchester.
