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.

    Sandwiches were forgettable lacking in flavour and taste

    Service at times was slow even though it was not busy

    Staff could have been more attentive- I had to request top up on tea and clotted cream and jam for scones - Sense of feeling invisible to staff

    Cakes were best part though was never given a description to what I was given

    I cannot fault the staff service; this was excellent. The ambience was also very nice. I was not overly impressed however by the types of sandwiches and cakes. I had expected more of an English tea and some of the sandwiches were very strange flavours. The cakes also were not what I expected. The scones were small. I thought that they should have more fruit in them. The range of teas was good. To be honest, I don't think I would return to do another in the future which is a shame.

    Food ok. Service fine. However the table we had was like eating in a corridor. Room was busy and seemed like hotel was cramming in as many as possible. Not a relaxing experience an unlikely to rebook.

    Disappointingly poor service. The food was nice, other than my gluten free sandwiches which were so dry as to be inedible. But there seemed to be an insufficient number of serving staff and some of those who were there didn’t have very good customer service. Overall quite a disappointing experience.

    It was our mum's 80th Birthday and we thought The Midland would be the ideal place to taker her and it was the correct choice! All the staff were exceptional, from the lady on the reception desk to Jessica who greeted us and the waiter and waitresses who served us. They all made it a special day. All the food was superb and the tea hit the spot! It was a lovely afternoon in a beautiful setting and we will definitely be back. Thank you.

    Not very good service, food not amazing

    Booked afternoon tea for four on Friday 15th June arrived a little early but were taken to our table straight away, a lovely window spot. The tables are all set at such a distance that you don't overhear the conversation of others which is a big plus. The Tea Room is very elegant with a pleasant relaxing ambience about it. The whole tea was delicious, lots of choice of sandwiches if you didn't fancy the standard, interesting and tasty tea choices and we opted for the champagne which was perfect. In addition to the excellent quality of the tea itself what we all commented on was the exemplary service by each and every member of staff who dealt with us; I've taken tea in a number of different Manchester venues and none of them match the Midland for service, it's absolutely the best.

    We had afternoon tea in the tea room. The sandwiches and cakes were lovely, interesting and well presented. The 3 homemade jobs to accompany the scones were very tasty. The service was excellent and the staff very friendly and attentive. We weren't rushed at all and both thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Highly recommended.

    Afternoon tea at the Midland is promoted as an exceptional experience but we were not convinced. Service was poor, a hen party was VERY noisy (not the hotel's fault but it was a great distraction) and the tearoom is not spacious and was a bit claustrophobic for one of our party. On the plus side, the food was nice, a vegan tea was available (not commonly found) and 'doggie bags' for uneaten cakes were not only provided but expected to be so and turned into an advertising opportunity!
