Just come back from a hen party weekend at the Marriot Victoria and Albert. The accommodation was lovely with good size rooms and a relaxed seating area in the bar. Staff were polite and helpful and went out of their way to be accommodating. We had an evening meal, breakfast and afternoon tea. All the food was delicious and again staff were attentive and accommodating. Many thanks to everyone for a wonderful couple of days
Lovley afternoon. Nice seating area. Lovley atmosphere and great service.
We were made to feel very welcome, the staff were lovely and the food was very nice.
My Afternoon Tea experience was a Christmas gift from my daughter. I was disappointed with the following: 1) Table, having been seated the table was set ready.However,beneath the plate on which the milk jug and sugar was set was a milk spillage. This was wiped up with a tea towel when I pointed it out to the waiter. 2) Windows - the windows alongside the tables were very dirty on the exterior, which given the current weather was possibly excusable. However, the inside of the window alongside our table was also badly smeared. It looked like a child had previously seated there and mauled the glass with soiled hands. 3) Food - sandwiches were tasty but the bread was somewhat hard on the exterior side of each one. The waiter told me each stand of sandwiches etc were prepared in the morning. Surely, if this is normal practice the food should be covered and protected. 4) Food selection - For my taste there were too many cakes - including a delicious scone there were 3 cakes each. 5) cocktails - excellent choice, fresh and delicious.
Sandwiches, bread dry as if sandwiches were made earlier and left uncovered. Bread too thick for amount of filling. Tasted of just bread. Wrap and cakes were nice.
Enjoyed the vegan cream tea and cocktails, but only because we had a Wowcher deal. Wouldn’t have paid the full £45 for it! Excellent, attentive staff, warm welcome and fantastic service. Unfortunately for the hotel-and this is beyond their control-they are right in the middle of 3 building sites, making getting to them difficult (two streets no longer exist) and the view from out table was of a half-finished tower block.
My friend and I came for vegan afternoon tea which I had been given a voucher for. The staff were friendly and attentive and the place itself was pleasant to dine in. However the food was awful. The sanwiches were under filled and tasteless and the cakes and scone were dry and tasteless. I have seen a couple of 4 star reviews for the vegan afternoon tea so I was surprised how bad it was. I wondered if customers using vouchers were being offered an inferior version. Either way, if a vegan option is going to be offered a little more skill and imagination needs putting into it. It doesn't have to be the exact same offerings as a traditional one but the quality should be the same. Great vegan food and baking does exist, this just wasn't it.
Really enjoyed afternoon tea at the hotel. Great cocktails and super friendly staff
i can never get through on the phone when trying to book, it is advertised as 12-4pm aft tea but these times are NEVER available. Kept having t ask for a extra plate it never came, asked for extra tea never came, terrible service
Lovely vegan afternoon tea with excellent service. A couple of the cakes were on the dry side, although I have been before and this was the first time they hadn't been quite to the same standard. However, still enjoyable and very good value with the offer voucher. Service is impeccable.
We had a fantastic time. Our server was so helpful and friendly. The food was good and this was exceptional value as we had got this on wowcher but would be good value anyway I feel. Would most definitely return.
Fabulous afternoon tea Lovely food Pleasant friendly staff Lovely surroundings I have been on numerous occasions and will definitely visit you again Thanks for a lovely experience Anne b/x
The V & A is a special place for me having my wedding reception here 11 years ago, I have such happy memories. Upon our arrival there is a lot of building works going on at the moment but the place didn't feel as special or as inviting on this visit. My husband and I visited back in October for afternoon tea with prosecco for our wedding anniversary and the experience was lovely hence the reason for booking again for my mother's birthday. Upon this visit we promptly received the food before being offered a drink, which I thought was rather rushed, and the sandwiches were crusty round the edges like they had been left for a couple of hours and wasn't freshly made. The variety of cakes we received was not the same as when I visited in October, so was fairly disappointed after telling my mother how much of a wonderful experience I had in October with my husband. The cocktail we had was prosecco and fresh orange, but the two ladies on the next table asked how our cocktails were as they were disappointed in their choice and both had left their glasses nearly full. I didn't mention anything on the day as it was my mother's birthday and didn't want to cause a fuss but will definitely think twice about booking here again.
Fantastic food. Great value for money. Really friendly, competent and helpful staff.
Bar and restaurant staff were very friendly and happy. Went for afternoon tea and they made sure that we had everything we needed.
Waiting for next offer so l can book again..really enjoyed the afternoon
The vegan afternoon tea was delicious. The staff were friendly helpful and welcoming. Our waiter Bruno gave excellent customer service!
I’m so disappointed in our afternoon tea we had on Sunday 5th January at 4pm. We had bought a groupon offer - 5 in total. There was some mistake in how many vouchers we had but when I told our waiter this it took absolutely ages until we got our last afternoon tea. All the other people had nearly finished theirs before we got ours. It also took ages until tea and coffee was served. We waited so long for our cocktails that we even contemplated leaving because we didn’t want to wait much longer. Truly disappointed and won’t be recommending your restaurant to friends.
Excellent service staff very attentive and friendly. Used wowcher offer but would definitely come back. Thank you
Thank you for a lovely visit to V&A Manchester for afternoon tea. We received a high level of customer service and the value for money was fabulous.
Went for afternoon tea for my 60th birthday with 3 friends. I Spoke to someone last night, I was advised this would not be a problem and to request plain ham sandwiches for 1 of the group,on our arrival today- when I did this I was advised afternoon tea was the standard tea, but they would do plain ham sandwiches , instead of egg mayonnaise, and plain tuna , eventually we were brought ham sandwiches with a thick layer of mustard on both sides, and tuna with I think peppers in it. Then we asked for a refil of tea - hot water was put in pot but no tea bag - .so this was sent back 😢. And a fresh pot of tea was delivered- which had a tea bag in it . Had it not been for good company my afternoon tea celebration would have been ruined . Very disappointing afternoon which we were looking forward to .
Pre show food and drink for a party of 7 in a lovely hotel with attentive staff.Will definitely be back for more.Thank you.
Had such a lovely afternoon tea for a friends birthday. All staff from booking to leaving were so friendly and accommodating - nothing was too much trouble. Food was excellent, especially the vegan afternoon tea. Great voucher, good value & super staff. Will be back!
I had bought the vegan afternoon tea for myself my mum and my sister. We received hardly any food and no scones. When we queried this we were left hanging. When my mum asked for more milk a gentleman served her dairy milk with no apology! I want a refund!!
