Completely wonderful! Been many times and it is always a great afternoon.

Disappointing, was told to wait 15 minutes after the booked time as we needed to wait for a table to become available, after hanging around outside for a while we were shown in to an almost empty room with many empty tables. After being seated we had to wait a further 20 minutes for someone to take our drinks order. Sandwiches were poor, beef sandwich did not contain any of the accompaniments shown on the menu, and the beetroot was simply bread and butter. Cakes were OK, however from the 3 fruit scones we had we managed to find 7 raisins between us, this helped to kill the time whilst we waited 10 minutes for the "silver service Jam service", please just give people some pots of jam and better service though I suppose it would be difficult to justify almost £30 per head for a couple of rounds of poor sandwiches and a few cakes if they didn't do this.

I booked this afternoon tea with a glass of champagne experience for 3 family members as a Christmas present. On arrival they were greeted pleasantly and their coats taken. Table was ready on arrival and set beautifully. They tell me that overall the food was excellent and they were told to ask for more if required. Service at the start was excellent spoiled only by the failure of the glass of champagne to arrive. So sadly service not excellent! As it was a present they decided not to make a fuss but I was disappointed to hear that they did not get what I had actually booked for them.

From the booking to leaving the experience was wonderful. It was a Christmas treat for my mother and sister in law, they loved every minute. The only criticism we could think of was we thought there were too many sweet things, but will be back again,

Fabulous afternoon tea, including a wonderful vegan version. Excellent selection of loose leaf teas.

Very disappointed, this was xmas present for my sister however we were seated in corridor near the toilets looking over partion into main room, when I asked if we could move to an empty table I was told it was already booked but it was still empty when we left. The sandwiches were dry and fillings under seasoned, the green icing looked and tasted revolting on the cakes, only the scones were up to standard. Not sure if service was soo bad due to time of year as I had been previously and had lovely experience but had to apologise to my sister for really poor xmas present.

We come every year for afternoon tea. This year the service didn’t seem as good as usual. We were not offered any tea or coffee and had to ask. Not the end of the world but we did feel that the staff were not as attentive as previous years. We always have the afternoon tea and an extra few glasses of champagne. I’d still recommend to family and friends.

I had booked the Festive Afternoon Tea prior to a concert at the Bridgewater Hall as a special Christmas treat for my Mother, & we both enjoyed the experience. The young lady who served us at the table was welcoming, informative & very pleasant. All the sandwiches & desserts were fresh & tasty - good we were able to take a few home with us as we couldn't have eaten them all! Nice Christmas touch with the glass of Champagne & Mulled Wine. My only complaint was perhaps the young man serving later that afternoon did not seem to be completely 'au fait' with what was going on. Perhaps he was relatively new, or had not be fully trained? I just thought that there needed to be more staff on duty for the number of diners at that time.
