This was a gift for my parents. They said it was great: they loved the food, the service and the decor.

    Hello. This is the second time I've visited The Edgbaston for afternoon tea. The first time last year was perfect - I couldn't fault the food, drinks or the service received. This time I visited with my friend and both of our mothers. The service again from most of the staff encountered was friendly but the waitress we had this time didn't appear to have the same training. Everything was explained to us clearly but without the same friendly, helpful service. Towards the end of our visit she managed to drop something which landed on my mother's glass causing it to smash leaving water down her trousers and shards of glass over both of us. Not once did she apologise or offer anything to show her remorse but instead disappeared to bring us extra napkins. The least she could have done was offer a drink as way of apology to my mother but if not that at least a sincere apology would have sufficed. I did speak to one of the managers following this in the hope that she could be given extra training or maybe a role that wasn't customer facing which may have suited her better. I'm not sure what's come of this but even the manager hadn't come across to the table to offer an apology to her. Customer service has certainly gone downhill since the last visit. Hopefully it will improve as this has always been a top recommendation for me when asked for afternoon tea suggestions in Birmingham.

    The lounge was very nicely decorated and stylish. Very Gatsby. It would have been nice if there had been more sandwiches/savoury items as there weren’t actually many substantial items. Also there wasn’t actually any cake- I was hoping for at least one piece. There was one pastry, the rest meringue, macaron and mousse which were very nice. Scones were lovely although I’m not sure why these were served after the cakes and sweets.

    Our memorable afternoon tea started from the moment we entered the hotel .the staff were welcoming and couldn't do enough to ensure a pleasurable experience without being overbearing .paricularly liked the vintage china and tea pots which complimented the art deco ambience which was restrained elegance .the standard of the food was excellent, beautifully presented ,everything fresh and mouth watering the amuse bouche was a wonderful theatrical start
    I have been to many other establishments for afternoon tea to include The Ritz and Florians in Venice and i must report that what you offer outshines them all .it was my dear friends 60th celebrations and he felt suitably pampered by his special presentation at the end of our tea
    In all a most civilised way to spend an afternoon there wasn't one aspect i could fault you should be extremely proud of delivering such a high quality service which was much appreciated

    We were seated quickly but then left alone without any menus or anyone speaking to us for nearly 10 mins. It was busy.
    The server did apologise for the delay and the waiting team from then on were exceptional.
    The afternoon tea was delicious and varied and it was good that one side was veggie. The warm scones were a lovely finish.
    It was nice to have the option of iced tea as I am not a tea drinker and the peach iced tea was very delicious. We also had cocktails and each was a taste sensation.
    We've had afternoon tea here twice now and will certainly return.
    We took a look at the outside garden area too which is nice.

    What a truly lovely experience. Celebrated with my niece from Canada who loved every minute of it. From the wonderful waiter and the exquisite service to the gorgeously displayed tea and food. All beautifully done to perfection in such elegant decor and surroundings. Thank you for a wonderful experience, we both truly enjoyed it.
