We have dined at Honey restaurant a few times and it never disappoints. The service is outstanding and the food was excellent. We had an Itison voucher, so it was nice to have a Gin and Tonic on the Club Brass roof terrace after.

We booked afternoon tea at the Gotham. It was superb and Antonio, our waiter, was amazing! Attentive, but without being over bearing and he then showed us up to the Terrace Bar for cocktails after. Cannot fault the whole experience at all. We cannot wait to come back again

The service took forever, we were there for four hours and we had a three course meal. Even the drinks took a long time, and they brought me the wrong drink but were adamant that it was the right one. The food was nice but overpriced. The parfait just tasted of lemon, it was supposed to be carrot cake, camomile and honey. I asked for no mascarpone on the Gotham Delice and it came with mascarpone. For the time we were there and the price overall we could have been to two restaurants that are a higher standard. They also automatically added the tip, we would have tipped anyway, but not the amount that was added due to the poor service.

Service was very slow, I was waiting for my friend to arrive and got given menus and had to wait 20 minutes for someone to take my order then another 20 minutes for the drinks to arrive, there was a couple that arrived the same time as I did and had an entire meal beginning to end before I was served. I was well into my booking by this point and decided I wouldn’t have time to order food, we ordered another round of drinks which to be fair didn’t take that long but by that point I was quite unhappy with my treatment and wanted to leave. What was really disappointing is that I booked this for my friend’s birthday as a nice surprise... very anti-climatic would not recommend.

Having patiently waited for a table after front of house took care of guests in front of us and putting coats in the cloakroom. We were taken to a table for lunch, after no one came over to ask us if we’d like a drink the Front or house member came back over to tell us she’d sat us at the afternoon tea table and not lunch. This was some 35 minutes after arriving, we got up and walked out. Luckily it wasn’t a special occasion, I don’t know how restaurants like this stay open. It wasn’t even busy

Unfortunately the service was very slow, it took 40 minutes to get served with drinks, table was booked for 3pm and it wasn’t ready until 3.20pm, a real shame because it was my second visit and the first time everything was spot on.

Overall lovely , staff lovely.
Afternoon tea gorgeous, scones still warm. Atmosphere pleasant, piano playing, got a window seat as requested.
Greeted by the hotel manager aswell which was nice
The only annoyance was a service charge added to the final bill, which we paid but found this a little bit cheeky as we were going to tip but this was already added !

Absolutely Loved It!

Hotel Gotham is fabulous and Honey is equally amazing. The food was great as was the service. The fillet steak was perfect and is one of the best steaks I've ever eaten and I've eaten a lot of steak ha.

Cannot wait to go back.

Salmon starter nice but nothing special
Mains - steak badly over cooked, roast potatoes forgotten then served raw, chips to replace potatoes clearly fried quickly and slightly undercooked.
Dessert was the highlight, Gotham delice well worth it!

We absolutely loved our evening at Gotham. The decor, the staff and the food were all fabulous. We would recommend it to anyone wanting first class food in a first class setting with first class service. We have actually recommended it to many people already and will continue to do so. We can’t wait for Gotham to open again after lockdown. Thank you so much for a truly Wonderful experience.

I was expecting an average afternoon tea given this is a hotel and also being 3 days before lockdown I could forgive them if it was below par but this was hands down the best afternoon tea I have ever had. And I have had alot of afternoon teas and it wasnt the fact that it came with Dom Perignon. The cakes, scones and sandwiches were heavenly to eat. Amazing flavours perfectly paired. Ive already told my husband we will be going back for my birthday.
