About Mottram Hall - Champagne Bar
Afternoon Tea at Mottram Hall is unlike any other. As the stalwart of the Cheshire social scene it has retained its popularity ever since the hotel opened in 1940. As with anything, it's important to reflect changing times while retaining the best of tradition. In view of this, we're delighted to introduce to you our newly improved afternoon tea experience. Indulge yourself in a full array of delicious sandwiches, cakes and scones. Why not also try our new bespoke tea blend, The Mottram 1940.
Enjoy our luxurious Afternoon Tea for £23pp with freshly made scones, sandwiches, cakes and a selection of artisan tea. Alternatively why not add a little extra and enjoy our Champagne Afternoon Tea for £30pp.
Our granddaughter loved her afternoon tea it was beyond her expectation and she would definitely visit again x
Loved the service
It was a beautiful day and staff were happy to move us outside to the garden to serve us. The staff you have are a credit to your company, they were friendly, helpful and efficient. Would definitely book again
Great food, super service by the staff. A little expensive as I asked for orange juice as I don’t like tea/coffee - £4 for 2! The fire alarm went off briefly 3 times, the door automatically closed but nobody came to speak to us or tell us it was a false alarm.
The vegetarian sandwiches were delightful and the entire afternoon tea was lovely. The room is beautiful and we really enjoyed the views of the gardens.
Lovely food in beautiful surroundings all served with knowledge and a smile from Andrew.
Surroundings are lovely at Mottram, you couldn't ask for any better. We went for our 5 year wedding anniversary, having had our reception at Mottram and our daughter's christening reception there 2 years ago. However, there was a wedding on so afternoon tea was being served in the Carrington Grill not the usual Champagne Bar - upon arrival at Carrington Grill, we had to wait a few minutes to be seen to despite there being plenty of staff walking round and then it seemed as though they didn't have a record of our booking? We were seated and eventually seen and then the afternoon tea came out, which was lovely, although the staff weren't very attentive which was a shame as it kind of spoilt the afternoon.
Would like the option to sit at higher table. Waiter lovely but left for long periods of time. Toilets smelt. Perhaps some background music to help with atmosphere
Fantastic all round 👍🏼
I had a fantastic time on Friday for my birthday with family Everything was perfect and they couldn’t do enough for us The staff were very friendly and welcoming The only problem was that I asked for no cheese to be put on my plate and sadly it was as it can make me poorly But other than that it was a fantastic day I will definitely be returning
Very good service and tasty selection of cakes and sandwiches. Green tea could have been in larger spout teapot as it kept getting blocked
First time visit to Mottram Hall using gift card given as a Christmas present. The Champagne Bar had a nice ambience and the afternoon tea was excellent with more tea supplied on request. Perhaps would like a little more savoury content to the afternoon tea (some hotels we have visited offer mini cups of soup, sausage rolls etc).
We had a lovely day celebrating mums 98th birthday, we were looked after very well with attentive staff and lovely food, certainly would recommend this experience.
Overall abit disappointed. I booked champagne afternoon tea in the champagne bar for my mother in laws birthday treat. We arrived to a wedding in full flow with guests overflowing out of the champagne bar into the reception with small children sat on the floor eating sandwiches and crisps off plates. A toastmaster asked if we were part off the wedding and on telling him we were there for afternoon tea ushered into the over crowded champagne bar to be sent out again the Carington Grill restaurant. On arriving at the grill reception I apologised to my mother In law as this was already not a great experience for a Mottram Hall treat. Carrington Grill was ok, atmosphere was ok, food was ok, filthy window sills and dead flys, would I go again ..... not unless I rang ahead first to see what other events were on and where we would be sat. It didn’t feel special whilst the outside of the building and grounds are lovely the rest is run of the mill. Oh and the window behind reception where the toast master was stood was open and a big sheet of the glass hanging off on one side not even attached to the frame.
Staff were very good Friendly and attentive
What a wonderful setting! We came here for Afternoon Tea to celebrate my daughter's 18th. The food was excellent and the staff were attentive but not overbearing. The decor was lovely and the room had a relaxed atmosphere about it. Just a shame there were ladies swanning around in bath robes which I wasn't expecting.
The champagne afternoon tea was a huge success as a birthday treat ,a beautiful setting delicious food and of course bubbling champangne. Special mention to Andy who looked after us so well. The hall and grounds provided the perfect setting.
Very charming service from the two waiters. Had a great day celebrating my mums 80th birthday
Really lovely venue and food but the atmosphere was absolutely non existent and it was actually quite uncomfortable due to the total silence in the room where you could hear every word that others were saying! It needed music or pianist or SOMETHING! Service was OK, but slow to get started. We were left at least 10 minutes with nothing at all after sitting down and no one about at all. All a bit stark and cold compared to all the other afternoon teas we have attended. A shame as it was such a lovely place but the whole thing seemed a bit of an afterthought. Fizz and food were great bit as it was a gift for an 85 year olds birthday it was a bit flat.
After booking a 6pm champagne afternoon tea and looking forward to treating my wife it was an understatement to say I was disappointed to find it wasn’t happening. The staff had tried to contact me but my call back was directed to reception who had no idea what was going on. Afternoon champagne tea isn’t served after 4pm. The website (which I booked through) offered me times after that. I was told flatly it wasn’t possible and I spoke to a manager who wasn’t sympathetic to the wrongdoing of the website. I thought perhaps he would have offered us a free drink to ease the dissatisfaction but no. Not happy. Won’t book again. The best thing was the barman offered me a discount on a sandwich I ordered and I appreciated the young man offered a better customer service than the manager. Get the website fixed. Crappy service.
Dear Sir, I booked afternoon tea for 6 people on the 13th of July for a special occasion, and while the actual food was very nice I was dismayed to encounter a number of problems during the afternoon tea. Initially we went to the champagne bar as outlined in our booking confirmation (I had also phoned to confirm it was in the champagne bar the week before) , and were told the afternoon tea would be served in the carrington grill, no real issue for us, however, for a special occasion there was a number of people in robes clearly having come from the spa having lunch in the grill area which perhaps was not ideal or expected. As soon as we sat down we all noticed that our cups were not at all clean, and 6 of the 6 had to be removed and replaced. Our initial waitress was very apologetic and looked mortified, however it made us wonder about the cleanliness of the establishment. (We noticed the glasses on the next table to us were dirty also) The food was very nice however it took about an hour to arrive. Later we ordered a couple of coffees and the pot was brought to the table with no cups, and we had to seek out a waitress to get fresh cups. These cups were also not particularly clean, and the bottom of the pot was covered in cake. We also had to ask for the table to be cleared after an hour of finishing our afternoon tea, and even then only the cake stands and a few plates were taken and the rest of the table left until after we left. There was only one other couple having afternoon tea at the time, so I would have expected a little more attentiveness, and specifically attention to detail with regards to cleanliness. While the food was very nice the experience was marred by the above problems. I would unfortunately find myself unable to recommend the experience, despite the beautiful grounds and building. Due to this being a special occasion I did not want to make huge issue at the time about the above, although my mother did mention a few times about some aspects being unacceptable to the staff, however I would like to express my disappointment in writing. It was also embarrassing to me as I had booked the afternoon. I would be grateful for your comments with regards to our experience as while a few mishaps could be ignored, filthy crockery is certainly not acceptable in any establishment, let alone one of such high standing. I have put the same in comments in an email also
We had the classic afternoon tea. The sandwiches were fresh and scones were served Warm. There was a variety of cakes, which were not too overpowering. The variety of teas on the menu was great. I really enjoyed the Mottram Blend and the Garden of Eden.
Lovely afternoon tea but not what advertised on the menu. Felt forgotten about at the end as original server disappeared, had to find someone to ask for the bill. Also had to ask for milk and teaspoons.
Beautiful selection of small cakes and sandwiches, great service . Lots of tea top ups .
It was a shame that the six of us were all crammed in for our afternoon tea when there was so much room. Also would have been nicer to have had it in the garden room so we could have enjoyed the gardens instead of the library room where it was dark and couldn’t see anything, slightly disappointing this time, have been to Mottram Hall many times for Spa days and Afternoon tea but feel let down this time, had to ask for the tea and coffee to be served with our afternoon tea.
