101 Brasserie & Bar
I received the group on voucher as a gift, so was really looking forward to going for afternoon tea to celebrate my sisters birthday. What a let down. there was a toaster left out filthy next to our table. Staff didn't want to be there (although they were lovely when talking to us,) No one asked if we were vegetarian etc. I asked what teas they have and a lady brought over a box and said 'there's some in there, have a look' so i felt awkward and just selected normal, she didn't even ask my sister. Had to ask for my sisters prosecco, No music on, sat by a door that was broken and staff and customers kept banging shut and moving the metal arm on the top up and down. Sandwiches were rock hard, the watercress on top was pathetic. Cakes were nice and so was the scone. Its clear to me that the hotel has gone down in standards as everything seemed to be budget. There was only 3 tables in and i understand why. I wouldn't return again.
Good food and ambience but forgot one of our tapas for the starter and also forgot a pudding. Otherwise v nice.
Booked afternoon tea for myself and my daughter as we were having a weekend away in Manchester. My scone was dreadful quality and I had to leave it, my daughter had gluten free scone which we thought had been microwaved as it was very hot and was not very nice, my fruit tart fell to pieces as I tried to pick it up, the pastry was very soggy. I left the rest of the food. All in all it wasn't the pleasant afternoon I had envisaged. I would not go again or recommend it.
Lovely staff , really nice afternoon for a special occasion and the afternoon tea was lovely 🤗
