I would echo the view that this is currently the best afternoon tea on offer in Manchester.
Go for the "Gentleman's" rather than the traditional, especially if you are hungry or have a good appetite. The small savouries were imaginative and delicious. The sandwiches we got were less imaginative - beef, ham and egg mayonnaise, though more substantial than the finger variety on offer with the traditional tea.
The scones were less well executed - reminiscent of an amateur's first attempt at rock cakes - but were edible. The accompanying dollop of clotted cream was a very generous portion.
Unlike the menu of teas, there is only one blend of coffee available - in various forms : filter, latte etc.
Did we miss the cakes - a resounding "no". There was more than enough to eat - and enjoy.
The friendly staff were a nice bonus too.
Definitely will be recommending to friends
