Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

First time visit and between the six of us we all chose different brunch options. My Benedict with bacon was superb and the poached eggs cooked perfectly. Would recommend because they also cater for vegetarian options

Absolutely delicious afternoon tea and great service. Bottomless hot drinks, selection of sandwiches and other savoury items, scones with cream and toffee sauce, brownies, macarons and a cherry chocolate mousse. We were so full we couldn’t eat it all but were able to take away...what we hadn’t managed to finish. Would definitely recommend!More

We went for chocolate afternoon tea, on a Groupon voucher. We had a warm welcome and were promptly seated. There was a wide choice of drinks, and the tea consisted of-bottom tray- 4 sandwhiches, 2warmed mini quiches and 2 other items. 2nd tray had two...warm scones, cream, and a chocolate spread. The top tray had 4 chocolates, 2 slices of marshmallow cake, and 2 slices of chocolate fudge cake. All were much appreciated. This was an unusual but very welcome take on the traditional afternoon teaMore

Went for afternoon tea with my friend and her daughter, ordered afternoon tea and was given an adult one for the kid, we just presumed they would get a different one being a kid and we did mention several times she won't eat the stuff...given and had to order different food for her, not one staff member tried to remedy this, when we asked about this they said it's not much different to the adults one, not suitable for kids, most kids would not what was provided and we also didn't enjoy the deserts, the only thing we enjoyed was the hot chocolate which was lovelyMore

Took my friend there for afternoon tea after having a lovely brunch there last Sunday. It didn't disappoint. Prosecco, unlimited tea or coffee or you could have a hot chocolate. Lovely sandwiches and mini quiche, gorgeous scrummy cakes and chocolate. Lovely staff. A great experience.

I made my own food tour around Manchester- Cocoa Cabana was stop number two. As it was Easter time, there were plenty of seasonal treats! My friend and I shared a chocolate cake and Mini Egg rocky road (pictured) which were both magnificent. I also...enjoyed a luscious Biscoff Hot Chocolate. This chocolatier is simply a must-visit for anyone with a sweet tooth. Service could have been a tad more friendly, but I want to return for a loaded/Augustus Gloop Hot Chocolate.More

We ordered our food at 11.45 and were told that the table was booked for 1 so we’d need to move for them which is absolutely fine. 12.30 still had no food so we asked. Turns out our food had been sat outside for some...reason which they tried to give us cold, so we asked for it warm. We were also asked to move at 12.20 as the booking for 1pm was 40 minutes early. Of course we moved, but this booking never arrived so no idea why we were asked to move. Finally received our food at 12.50 which was very nice and I can only fault the waitress unfortunately. For £28 the service clearly wasn’t included in the price, also the beans clearly weren’t included in the priceMore

My 13 year old grand-daughter came especially from Belfast for the Augustus Gloop special to celebrate her birthday. We had previously emailed to ask if we needed to book and we’re told we didn’t. The waiter didn’t try to accommodate us in any way. Three...people with no booking came after us and we’re given seats. Our experience was very disappointing and we will never be back.More

I am absolutely obsessed! We were here for a brief long weekend away. The menu with extraordinary options (like a combination of waffles and chicken) got our attention. When we got there on a Wednesday morning for a brunch it was a bit quiet. There...was something wrong with our reservation, which the friendly person behind the counter all took care of. Big points for this guy. We both could order straight away and got a table. We got the waffles with chicken. It-was-phenomenal. For a small price you get a plate filled with waffles and chicken on top. If i could give six points on Tripadvisor I would.More
