    The hotel was having some major building work being done which was disappointing but the staff were very welcoming, helpful and attentive. Well worth trying the teas. The Midland Jubilee was fantastic with strawberry and nougat flavour's. My overall experience with afternoon tea (at all venues) is that there is always far too many sweet cakes and not enough savory. 4 sandwiches, 2 scones and 4 cakes is far too much sweet stuff. Why not include a nice savory option say sausage rolls, mini Cornish pasties, a small pie etc.2 cakes would be enough. However the food was excellent and service great. Overall a little expensive when you include the service charge particularly if you don't eat all the cakes!

    Lovely afternoon celebrating our daughters birthday. Only one slight disappointment, we hadn’t realised the hotel was having a refurb which took away some of the experience.

    Great service. Food (vegan and vegetarian afternoon tea) not so great. Visited a couple of years ago and it was definitely not as good as then. We didn't get all of the sandwich choices listed on the menu and scone and 2 of the cakes very dry.

    Service was slow. Atmospher non existent. Was pricier than most I looked at in Manchester for afternoon tea. Thinking being the Midland would be that bit special. How wrong.

    Our personal service was ok, however the room was 1/4 full, yet all the other tables still had leftover plates, food, drinks etc from previous customers, as they had not been cleared at all. During our time there another couple were seated, however they then decided to leave due to the state of the tables not being cleared. In light of the current concerns of COVID-19 this does not sit well. Thankfully our table was not in clear view of this, therefore out of sight out of mind helped, however there was considerable disruption when the decision was made for a mass clearing of all the tables. Attention to services details is required.

    Lovely afternoon tea with champagne on Sunday at the Midland Hotel. This was my first visit to the hotel and we had a thoroughly enjoyable time, service and food was excellent.
