Offering one of Manchester’s grandest dining experiences, afternoon tea at The Midland Hotel is a lavish occasion served at the hotel since 1903.

The Tea Room menu perfectly matches the splendour of this luxury hotel. Alongside fine loose leaf teas, including The Midland’s 3 private blends, indulge in carefully cut finger sandwiches, delicate cakes and fresh, warm scones with delicious preserves.

A 4-star deluxe hotel in Manchester established in 1903, The Tea Room at The Midland is one of the city’s most iconic destinations. Manchester Oxford Road Train Station is a 6-minute walk away.

    This was the first time my friend and had visited the new tea room at the Midland Manchester. We were impressed with the ambience of the room. We were able to customise the sandwiches to our taste, the scones were excellent and the cakes good. Unfortunately our overall experience was let down by the service we received. We arrived 5 minutes before our allotted time and despite asking twice we had to wait 25 minutes for a table. The jam is served when you are ready to eat the scones but It was difficult to attract the staff's attention to order the jam. There was such a long delay before our extra tea arrived the ladies on the next table offered to share theirs!!

    Lovely tea room, quiet and cool the air con was very welcome on a warm afternoon. The staff were helpful, confirming that they had noted my allergy and advising that we could swap items on the menu if we didn't like any of them.
    The sandwiches were a good mix of meat, seafood and veggie. There is a good choice of menues, including full vegan, veggie and gluten free. The crayfish were our favourites. As in all the tea rooms we've visited the balance between sweet and savoury was far too heavily weighted in favour of sweet. Most customers seemed to either leave some or take them home in a gift box, but they were all tasty. Scones were a generous size, served with clotted cream and a choice of homemade jams, which were 'silver' served.
    The champagne was lovely, we were lucky to be served a full glass, we noticed one staff member was much less generous than our chap, so we were glad of our server. The offer included as much tea or coffee as we wanted and we could choose as many varieties as we wanted. My favourite was the chai cleanser, very light and refreshing with a lovely blend of spices. My husband's was Due North a lapsang/whisky blend, very smokey.
    All in all a lovely experience.
    If we'd had to pay full price we might have only given 3 stars. We would have given 5 if we had been served the water we'd asked for in a timely way. We had to wait 30 minutes and ask 3 times for tap water. People who asked for bottled seemed to be served much quicker.

    Whilst the food was as good as always the service was not good at all this time. I have sent an email direct to the tea room

    Afternoon tea food was very good as was initial service. However it was difficult to get attention for additional drinks and conserves. A second plate for non savoury items plus cutlery for the same would have been beneficial. No one asked if everything was alright until we requested the bill.

    It's was a special day 'graduation...'. Took parents in law and girlfriend for afternoon tea. Lovely setting and food was ok but rather amount seemed rather small. I think the balance between sandwiches and cakes wasn't quite right. Not enough sandwiches, while far too many sugary cakes to be honest. Scones just right. :-)

    Think extra sandwiches for the price isn't much to ask at the expense of some of the cakes.

    Overall 6/10.

    Very accommodating and tasted wonderful. They still put lots of effort into the food, despite it being vegan. The staff were very friendly and informative.
