We visited Honey @ Gotham for their Champagne Afternoon Tea. As it was a belated 4-way birthday celebration, I also ordered a Birthday Platter.

We were met at the door by a very friendly employee and were promptly shown to our table.

Champagne was brough to us fairly quickly, however we then had a wait of around 45 minutes before the Afternoon Tea was brough out.

The sandwiches and Scones were exceptional, however the desserts let the meal down. The Macaron was cruncy, the Passionfruit Posset and Frangipan Tart lacked any real flavour and the brownie was claggy.

After finishing Afternoon Tea, we had another 45 minutes wait before the Birthday Platter was brought out, and that was only prompted by the fact I went up to pay the bill.

The staff on shift were generally attentive and friendly.

A friend and I dined at Honey following an evening in Manchester, and had a lovely time. We ordered some smaller plates and the food was great. The service was excellent and staff were able to recommend drinks and food based on their knowledge and our tastes. After dining, we took our drinks to the roof terrace which gave views of the city and was a great place to end our evening.

Delicious food and excellent service. We had the risotto, scallops, sea bass and hake. A tad on the salty side, but still five stars!

We had a celebration afternoon tea, the service was fantastic. Antonio looked after us.
The atmosphere was very relaxed for a Friday afternoon, we weren’t rushed at any point.
The food was fine, portions were good, we didn’t finished what was on the stand.
Lovely afternoon

We booked Honey restaurant on 2 July, the receptionist is very friendly and welcoming. The food is the best I have had in a long time, very tasty, we had the scollops and pork belly to start it was amazing !! I had the fillet steak and that was cooked to perfection. I like it rare. Also the waiter service was excellent. Antonio was our waiter he was lovely and very humerous. I will be back for sure !!!

Service was great, from the door man to being seated and the waiter recommending the chateaubriand with a good bit of light-hearted joking and an unexpected extra at the of the meal. Then arranging for us to go up to Brass for a drink afterwards.

Brilliant evening. Recommended

As we are mid pandemic still I was expecting some element of social distancing. There was NONE. Tables crammed in with 30 cm between us and the next table.

Food barely adequate. Overpriced for what it was. We left after one course as we felt so disappointed

Sadly won’t be coming back.

Overall the venue was quite quiet (but that was due to the time of day maybe) and I felt the cocktails and drinks were very overpriced, but we had a lovely dinner. The waitress was brilliant, although portion sizes were too small really - even for fine dining which is notorious for smaller portions.

I cannot thank the staff enough for the wonderful afternoon we had at your restaurant. The food was fantastic and every member of staff greeted us with warmth and kindness. We were made to feel really special from start to finish and it has been a Father’s Day that my husband will always treasure.

We look forward to our next visit with you.

Laiken, Shaun and Honey.

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
