I drink green tea and on previous visits this was provided on this visit they had none and I had to have a afternoon tea with a glass of cola . A hotel the size and grandeur of the central hotel I would have expected a varied choice of tea

Good value for afternoon tea with Wowcher for 4. Service was a bit slow. Had to ask for cutlery and plates as table wasn’t set for the 4 of us. But the food was delicious, especially the scones.

Bread for sandwiches was hard, looks like these are being produced on mass & not being kept fresh.
Also scones were disappointing, not home made.

The servers were not really attentive .
Took a long time to acknowledge us once we were seated . If you wanted to order you had to try and catch someone’s attention and that wasn’t easy .

My friend & I were happy enough with our afternoon tea although I would not have been happy paying £50 for the food we received. The food was nice, I would have expected freshly baked scones but all in all it was fine. The staff were friendly & attentive.

We were warmly greeted on arrival but despite booking, our table was occupied and we had to be relocated.
Once seated there was a delay in our order being taken.
I was visiting with my mum and it was a gift voucher for a double birthday celebration.
The sandwiches were freshly made but the selection was poor.
The cakes were delicious but the scones did not appear to be fresh.
We had only just eaten our sandwiches when a waiter came and asked if we wanted to have our cakes boxed to take home!! We felt very rushed.
We were given a small pot of tea each and no one came to ask if we required more.
Very disappointing and certainly not worth the advertised full price cost.
Would not recommend and would not plan to return.

Went here to treat my mum as she was here visiting. She absolutely loved it & felt thoroughly spoilt (sent lots of photos to her friends!)
I would definitely go again but swap the tea for bubbly!

Booked as a celebratory gift for 3 people. For the price of it and the quantity of food to be shared between 3 people we felt it was pretty poor in comparison to other high end hotel afternoon teas. We also were given a jam jar that had been previously opened and used by another diner. The staff were very apologetic about this but the lack of sandwich fillings and quantity of sandwiches (4 slim finger slices per person) that were to be shared between three people just let it down.

Afternoon tea is extremely disappointing and certainly not value for money.
Poor selection of sandwiches and cakes plus scones dry. Not what was expected. Had received this as a treat for special birthday and felt sorry that my relative had wasted his money. Would never recommend this venue.

It would be very helpful to know we only had 1.5 hours at the table. It would also be nice for the floor manager to more courteous about it. Empty tables around is for the full 1.5 hours we were given. No grace period to finish our drinks. No acknowledge ment of policy. Confirmation email made no mention of it.
Sorry but whilst nice to beta table we will not be back

Food was excellent however I thought it expensive for what you got especially if you paid full price. I asked for a tea refill & was given it however before I could drink it my cup & saucer was removed. I was too busy talking to my friend to notice the removal. I had already had to hold onto the cakestand to stop it's removal.
