Afternoon tea was enjoyable but not as luxurious as before lockdown. Sandwiches were tasty but just ordinary where before they were more unusual. Just the right amount of scones and cakes but cakes looked a bit lonely on such a large plate.

It was unbelievably warm in the bar area. Very limited ventilation and sunshine comes from the roof of the train station. If there was windows open or an upgrade to the air conditioning then I would have had a better experience.

It was ok nice setting but poor value for money and I think they should ask you if there are any sandwiches you don’t like and give options

Bit disappointed - waited ages for Prosecco and tea was brought before food when we didn’t really need it? Some of the bread wasn’t as fresh as it could be and fillings not what they used to be? We were however offered a drink when we brought this to the waiters attention?

The decor was pleasant and the environment special. All added to a relaxing atmosphere. Our servers were wonderful and despite been understaffed our waitress split herself into many parts to cater for our every need.

Worth repeating.

So much better with restrictions on numbers, we booked a table in the bar but got out into lounge /dining area but that wasn’t an issue. Will return if numbers continue to be limited as back to previous is not enjoyable.

Had a very pleasant afternoon at Champagne Central. Champagne Afternoon Tea followed by a cocktail. Everything was excellent, especially the service, from the moment we arrived until we left.
Thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon.

Disappointed in wait for food, despite having asked twice re the delay. Some staff we asked did not return to keep us updated. It was resolved but put a damper on a day of reunion and celebration.

Did not live up to the standard of other afternoon teas in the city. Very basic and the scones were shop bought and not that day!! Quite disappointing as it was a special event that we had waited months to celebrate.

Lovely, relaxing atmosphere, friendly and accommodating staff & the food tasted great. My only slight criticism would be the cost of the afternoon tea per head. I found this slightly over priced. However we all had a lovely day nonetheless.

I was led to believe there was a staff discount for IHG staff but disappointed after letting staff working the bar know, I paid full price. This made my visit a big disappointment.

Enjoyed our visit, and the food was very good. Only downside was that we were allocated a high table at the window, and whilst this was comfortable, there were artificial trees that kept catching my hair if I sat back. Would definitely go back, but would certainly request a normal height table.
