Amazing experience. We had afternoon tea with Prosecco, gorgeous food and a stunning environment to suit. Some hot drinks, like the got chocolate, came with a G printed on the foam in Chocolate powder, those little finishing touches made it 5*. We went to club brass afterwards, which again was stunning to have cocktails on the rooftop bar in the sun. We were even given a complimentary cocktail to share by the waiter. Will definitely be going back, we loved it. Made my birthday very special.
Booked a table for drinks and bar snacks, really excited, received a call earlier in the day to confirm the table was for drinks and bar menu only, as we knew we didnt want a full heavy meal. However, when we arrived we were told we could not just book for drinks and the bar menu, as we were not residents, however we could buy a day pass. The gentleman also informed us we could pick off the bar menu downstairs in the restaurant, so we could come back up for drinks then with no issues. We went down to the restaurant to be told we could not eat as tables were fully booked. At this point we were fed up of being beige different things. We wanted to experience the hotel and I wasnt happy none of this had been explained to me initially earlier in the day when the lady called me to confirm my table. Thankfully, the manager in the bar offered to accommodate us, but by that point we felt like we were imposing as we were told they must prioritise paying guests and members. We were happy with the atmosphere and drinks, but as I said we felt uncomfortable as we had been upstairs and downstairs, and the communication just didnt feel the best between the teams. Nice drinks and decor, I just wish the lady who called me to confirm my table had informed me there were restrictions on who could come in, as this would have saved a lot of hassle. We had planned our night around this hotel aa it was a surprise for my other half, but we ended up having to find somewhere else to eat, which was never my plan.
Great service and great tasting menu, I would like to go back and stay over too.
Outstanding from walking through the front door of the hotel, to being greeted at the restaurant entrance, the service, the quality of the food and the quality of the cocktails upstairs in the bar.
It’s a beautiful place to be, the food is amazing and the waiting on staff (Andre) and bar staff upstairs manage to be attentive and knowledgeable while also being personable too.
Not a cheap option but for the whole experience, I would fully recommend
Lovely experience, nice friendly staff, beautiful food and fantastic ambiance, we will definitely come again!
The afternoon tea was OK but nothing more I’m afraid. The ambience was ok - quiet because of Covid I guess but still the rooms decor and general vibe was flat. A bit of a let down I’m afraid.
I've been here numerous times for afternoon tea and dinner. Staff always professional and friendly. Food never disappoints. Highly recommended.
Superb afternoon tea for 2. Would recommend coming to Gotham.
Booked in the day as part of the eat out scheme. The food was excellent, the service was very attentive and friendly, but get rid of the naff manakins dresses in 20’s clothes. Other than that I would definitely recommend the restaurant and great views from the windows as well.
Great value for money with the dine out to help out offer. Bit of confusion as the systems had gone down and card details had to be left. Would have been nicer if the trust we had to offer by writing down our bank card details and security number was reciprocated and maybe a payment could have been taken over the phone.
Exceptional service staff lovely decor amazing worth everyone penny
Food was very good although slightly overpriced for what it was . Service was pretty good and the server was very polite . If I had 1 small issue it would be when the charge fine dining price you would expect the little things to be correct. The wife ordered a glass of port with her cheese course and it was served in a champagne glass , because the correct ones were somewhere else. Although this was rectified I would have expected a bit more than this. Overall the visit was pretty enjoyable
Lovely location, staff were fabulous especially the gent that had started that day.
Lovely ambience excellent friendly Sevice great afternoon tea
🌟【Afternoon Tea🍰】Honey at Hotel Gotham🌟
👍 Top quality service
👍 Yummy macaroon
Honey restaurant is a 2 AA Rosettes award modern and sophisticated environment in the centre of Manchester City, on the 6th floor of the iconic Edwin Lutyens’ building.
I was sceptical after reading some bad reviews online for the service , however it was actually the opposite. Five star service shall be given to all the staff that I met, especially the welcoming staff at the door.
The afternoon tea itself was good, I would give it 7/10. Highlight was the raspberry macaroon which tasted even better than the well known french tearoom. It was fresh, soft and full of flavour. There were plenty of choices for tea and coffee; I had the rose tea and it was very nice. The scones were a bit dry but apart from that everything was tasty.
The ambience was really nice with an Art Deco style. You can overlook the city centre and there were plenty of window seats. Staff were professional and friendly.

Food amazing, cocktails sublime and staff brilliant
Service from our waiter was outstanding but the overall service of the full experience wasn’t the best
Amazing atmosphere and wonderful friendly staff. Food was perfect, can't wait to go again
We really enjoyed the ambiance and the food. Very friendly place and great atmosphere. Service was a bit haphazard at times but we really felt for staff having to cope with distancing, masks and new ways of working. Would definitely go again - loved the building.
Lovely place to eat for any occasion, service food and drinks all outstanding . Definitely worth it will be visiting again
Read reviews beforehand, but still booked in and was optimistic. It’s a shame because the food was brilliant but the service was as bad as people had said. My steak arrived with just a salad and they forgot the peppercorn sauce. My wife had to order her drink twice because they forgot both times and easily 45mins wait time for each course.
We had a lovely afternoon tea here when they opened up the doors on the 17th July. The staff were lovely,polite and welcoming. The afternoon tea was tasty and filling. Much nicer than I have had anywhere else. After the afternoon tea we went up to the bar and enjoyed a glass of wine on the door terrace. The bar staff were also very friendly and attentive. I would definitely recommend this place. Delightful.
Was expecting better, food was average, service was pretty slow saying was just afternoon tea waited 20 minutes to get served drink, then arrived and glass full of lipstick not what expect of high end restaurant
Food amazing, staff very attentive. A delightful experience
Enjoyed the afternoon tea but disappointed with the level on service. Had to ask three times what a Gotham afternoon tea was ! In the end just chose not really knowing
The venue was cool and interesting but once inside the tearooms we were left for fifteen minutes when finally we were spoken to nothing at all about the menu was explained not what drinks were included l thought prosecco was included the name implies this but no explanation of anything !! Not told anything about the teas or how many we could try etc Food was nice but no atmosphere !!!
The setting is wonderful and the food was excellent, but the menu is fairly limited. Very elegant and classy establishment. Wonderful piano player. The menu is expensive, even for an upscale restaurant.
There was only one hot menu in the tasting menu. It would be nicer if there is only 1 dessert and another hot menu.
But other than this I really enjoyed my time at honey.
Thanks for the great time.
Service was 5*
An absolutely amazing experience. Food ambience and attention to detail was outstanding. My daughter was overwhelmed with the whole experience for her 18th birthday. Amazing food and great service. We will return
Me and my new wife went on a Monday night and was very quiet which would be expected. The service was very good. Very friendly and happy to meet our needs. The food was fantastic, we hadn't had food like that for quite some time. Definitely would have no issues going back but maybe over a weekend when it would be busier and maybe a bit more of a atmosphere.
Excellent service and food, thanks for making the night special for my wife and her Twin sisters birthday
Dear Rob, Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a beautiful review. You are our real star. Most people don’t take the time to leave reviews about positive experiences, and that’s what makes you the star. Thank you for giving us this proverbial pat on the back. You made our day!
Very lovely looking restaurant and attentive staff and the food was fresh and nicely presented. The only problem was that the portion sizes were really small for the price of the food. For example a scallop starter cost £15 and you only got 2 scallops. Monk fish main course was on a bed of chick peas with only a few slices of monk fish for £24. House red wine was £30 and then there was a hike up to £45 for the next price range. It would be nice to have more choice around the £30 mark. It was worth a try but there are other restaurants in the vicinity that I would consider to be much better value for money.
Had afternoon tea at the Gotham last year it was superb but this time very disappointing

My husband and I came for afternoon tea for our anniversary and the stand out part was the service from Antonio! He’s amazing and a credit to Gotham
Sea bass was priced at £24 on the menu but was a very small portion, only two pieces, should probably have been three. Compared with the steak which was a really a good sized portion.
The 2 gentleman on the front door were very pleasant and made us feel welcome. When we went up in the lift we were met by a pleasant male who was able to accommodate an extra person for us. From there it went a bit down hill. The staff were nice and pleasant and were ordered afternoon tea. When it came it looked very nice. Unfortunately the bread on the sandwiches tasty a bit stale, the sausage roll was lovely and the cakes nice. There was only one other couple in and the staff only asked one of our party if they wanted another drink and then disappeared for quite a while so they rest of us did not get chance to have any more to drink. It was a shame, if the bread was fresh and staff a bit more attentive it would have been nice
Booked as a Christmas Present.
Stood waiting for host for far too long.
Showed us to our table and gave us a menu stating as it was December 26th we were still able to order from the special Christmas Menu...
This was not the menu advertised online which enticed us to make the booking.
We then realised this was the smaller bar menu from the bar upstairs.
When asked for the menu, the waiter then said there was an issue with a delivery and only the bar menu was available.
The fact there were different stories wasn't great - but the worst part was their attitude.
No apology, nothing at all - not a care in the world.
We decided to go elsewhere which was a terrible shame.
We are not unreasonable and appreciate things happen that are outside of people's control, but this was very poorly handled.
Had a special meal, lovely food and great service. The 5 course tasting menu was perfect.
Fantastic service and lovely festive setting! My favourite place to go!
