    Afternoon was very good apart from the scones which were disappointingly hard. Service was effiicient to the point of being impersonally robotic. Nice space.

    Overall it was a wonderful afternoon, plenty to eat and we didn’t feel rushed at all!

    Location, venue and food very good but the service let it down. Sat for a long time with empty teapots and no scones! Such a shame as could have been an excellent afternoon tea. More annoying as significant service charge added for our large party.

    I took my mum to thank her for helping me to organise my wedding. The food was delicious. We had a traditional afternoon tea and everything on it was amazing. We thought we would be able to eat it all but we were truly full and the staff wrapped the rest of it up for us to take home. The tea room was a beautifully decorated room. The seats were comfy and the tables were decorated nice and clean.

    I had the vegan afternoon tea and my partner had the traditional afternoon tea. We were both very happy with every bite. We did have to wait 45 minutes because the vegan sandwiches were being made to order, so let them know in advance if you know you’re going to order it. However, we were allowed to stay after our allotted time slot had finished so we didn’t feel rushed and were able to enjoy the full experience. I was especially impressed with the tempeh sandwich and macaroon. Delicious food and teas and attentive waiting staff. I’d happily return.

    Afternoon tea at the Midland was thoroughly disappointing.Firstly we always make an effort to be punctual,and to be told they were running 15/20 minutes late(which turned out to be 40 minutes late)was not a great first impression.The lady that told us this was rather curt and offered us no drinks or anything while we waited.The food and tea were very nice,and there were some very creative flavours in there too.However the service was too lax and we had to search for a waiter if we wanted anything,we did not feel well looked after as we had expected to be.We were so looking forward to our treat at The Midland,and the new Tea Room there,what a shame it let us down on so many easily fixable levels.The booking form puts great emphasis on clients need to release the table after an hour and a half so why not ensure their time keeping is up to speed too so clients are not kept waiting at the outset.

    As an occasional tea drinker our waitress was able to find me the perfect blend that suited my requirements. Excellent knowledge. The cake selection was especially good and all ingredients were discernible and delicious.
