I’ve been a regular customer to Cloud 23 over the years and throughly enjoyed all my visits. Food, staff, atmosphere has always been top class. Then COVID hit. I was regularly following on social media for the return and quickly booked our afternoon tea and unlike previous bookings, I did pay some monies in advance as was prompted. I understand new restrictions are to be place following guidelines but I felt it lacked atmosphere. It was extremely quiet and I understand numbers are reduced but it looked empty, even though I know it was fully booked. I personally feel a few more tables could of been in the larger room as only a handful present at most which made the room empty and no atmosphere. Food was good and service. My bill arrived without my advance payment which I had to to point out. I love cloud 23 and will certainly return but I will wait under COVID has passed us as I don’t feel it has the atmosphere at this present time.

Afternoon tea was nice, but the bread was wet, obviously been stood around and the fillings made the bread too wet. Could squeeze liquid out.

Me and my fiancé had a lovely afternoon tea for our 30th birthday celebrations. The staff were lovely and the service was great. There were lots of COVID safety precautions which did not spoil the experience at all and made everything safer. The food and cakes were amazing, we'll definitely be back!

Food was good, but limited in quantity. Of all the Afternoon Teas I have had, this was the least value for money. I would not be looking to repeat the experience 👎

We had an enjoyable evening , tho at the minute there is no atmosphere in the place , maybe Covid has something to do with that .

I did think the cocktail afternoon tea was value for money at all and probably wouldn’t do it again.

I booked here for afternoon tea for my girlfriend before the opera house, and as she loves her tea i though what better place, i requested peppermint tea also a seat by the window and both was sorted with no problem, fresh peppermint tea in a pot and the best cappuccino iv ever had, the mini food bites was decent also the sweet cakes etc was nice too, service was really good and never was to much bother to get more drinks as they was refillable, i did read previous reviews on someone saying the toilets wasn't up to standard but on my visit they was gleaming, 10/10 place and made her day, will certainly have to book a room with you guys next for a bigger experience

Had fantastic evening at Cloud 23 bar. Went to celebrate the wife's birthday, the service was very helpful, amazing views too. Went on a Monday evening... wasn't full and wasn't empty.. just right for a romantic night out

The staff were friendly and professional but the afternoon tea was underwhelming. The venue is spectacular but the whole experience was let down by the quality of the food and drink served up. Specifically, the small sandwiches were not fresh, stale bread. The scones were stale but heated in a microwave to try to refresh them. The coronation chicken scones looked unappetising and not cold, room temperature. We didn’t eat them for fear of food poisoning. The so called champagne was cheap and nasty with very little fizz. We sat on soiled uncomfortable chairs but did not allow the negatives to spoil the occasion. The Staff were delightful, the sense of occasion was special, the views are amazing. However, from our experience, it seems this venue needs a refresh in terms of the quality of the food and drink served up for their famous champagne afternoon teas. We paid £49 each for free flowing ‘champagne’ coffees etc, however the quality was poor. I’d rather have less but high quality rather than bottomless low quality.

The service was great, reception, table service, all great and very friendly. The food arrived before the drinks, having then to wait for drinks before starting the food - a bit annoying. Apart from that, a great experince. gret voews as well! :-)
