Went with wife for afternoon tea. The ambience, view and choice of offer is amazing. However, I knew the tea/coffee was unlimited, but at no point did the waitress make this clear. If it was my first visit, I would have been totally unaware. The service was also incredibly slow, and asking for more drinks, or the bill became a... More

Booked a table way in advance for a Saturday night! Strolled straight to the front of the line waiting and was taking up to the 23rd floor in the lift and then shown to our table! Table service was great and the views were too! Very happy booked in again for the 4th April! Looking forward to a few glasses... More

This was an afternoon tear treat from my daughter. We were greated by very friendly staff and shown to a table for 2 by the window - great view. Our waitress was also very friendly showed us the menu and came back shortly after for our order. We could have unlimited hot drinks from an extensive menu of teas, coffee... More

Arrived late evening as a group of 12, asked if we were able to have a drink...the member of staff asked us to wait whilst he went up to check which was almost ten minutes...not the best start, however once allowed in we received impeccable service whilst enjoying top views and cocktails. Not somewhere you would visit often as it's... More

GOOD POINTS: -The place is very spacious and clean. The toilets are the same too. -Decorated very beautifully. BAD POINTS: -Ridiculously overpriced drinks that aren't even that nice. £9 for a small non-alcoholic mocktail? Unbelievable. And they're quite bland. You're best going to The Alchemist - well priced, tasty and great atmosphere. -Atmosphere is quite dead. -The view is disappointing.... More

Visited with a friend spontaneously after discussing that we'd both like to try it at some point. Had to wait about 10 minutes on a Friday at about 5pm but we were behind about four groups of people so the wait wasn't as long as expected. I was impressed by the organisation and seating arrangements etc. and although it was... More

Service was very slow, waiters/waitresses try to take your order without a pen&pad which resulted in them having to come back to confirm our food order (twice). Food took over 60minutes to arrive after ordering (though the table next to us ordered after us yet finished their food before ours even arrived...). Hopefully this was a genuine mistake rather than... More

I couldn't fault the drinks and the whiskey selection was good. The bar is obviously unique because of the views and the fact that nothing obstructs the building however it does not feel as premium as when it opened. This might be because of increased competition in the spinningfields area. I went up quite late midweek and so the service... More
