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.

    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.

    Superb service, food and ambiance

    Lovely terrace upstairs for a drink - great view of Manchester.
    Unfortunate sewer smell on the terrace at times.
    The cakes were lovely and a good variety.
    Not many sandwiches- they were cut into fingers and there were 3/4 each. The equivalent of just over half of a full sandwich. Not much for the cost. Some of the bread was a bit hard too.
    Plenty of tea and a very good variety to choose from.

    Overall satisfactory. Jam excellent. Scones very good. Mouse in glass over sweet and tasteless. Coffee far too strong.... had to return. Sandwiches fresh and tasty...however can be more imaginative with fillings. Of particular concern were the small chocolate cakes that had the shape of macaroons.....which left a GREEN colour on tongue, lips and fingers....need to investigate? Seating very comfortable. Service polite and courteous throughout.

    Lovely afternoon tea with my mum and baby. The staff are friendly and accommodating, the place is beautiful and the food is delicious. What more could you want?!

  • (((** 27 March 2017 by Amy Collier from Manchester

    The afternoon tea itself was beautiful and when we eventually got the champagne that went down a treat! Mum was gifted a small plant for mothers day which was a lovely touch! Its not often you can find not only edible gluten free scones but delicious and still warm too! Aside from the first waitress whose attitude left a lot to be desired and the mute bartender who simply thrust a card reader in our fave the orhwr staff we came in to contact with were smart and well mannered.
