Had afternoon tea. Table had stains under the glass top. Table uncomfortably low. Tea is tea bags, fine for coffee shop but not expensive afternoon tea. Not much food. Staff hard to get, food arrived then took 20 minutes to order tea then another 10 min to arrive so just had to sit looking at food. Food is tasteless. Only... More

Went last Thursday for a couple of drinks, place decor nice, staff friendly. £12 for a cocktail which wasn't anything special OTT, I don't mind spending but only when worth it.. I would say to those who want to go have a look, buy a tea and then leave.

Went to Cloud 23 for a birthday treat. Had champagne tea for 2, which is 1 glass of champagne with a couple of sandwichs and cakes. We then decided to have a cocktail each to complete the treat. What a shocker when the bill was £82.50, how that is justified for the quantity and quality I have no idea. The... More

In theory could be amazing - in reality stay away ... - View isn't amazing, its from 23 floors up but that's it ... it's hardly the most picturesque vista you are ever going to see ! - drinked are mixed by functionary bar staff, following recipes and measuring, not proper cocktail makers with a passion or skill for the...

Went here on Saturday night for couple of drinks. Its the first time I have been up to cloud 23 and what a great view! However, the drinks were over priced for what they are. A bottle of Peroni was £5.50 and the cocktails ranged from £10 - £13. But we have had better cocktails in other bars in Manchester.... More

My daughter and I decided to treat ourselves to the Weatherfield High Tea after having a lovely morning on the Coronation Street tour.For 38.00 each it was very dissappointing and certainly not worth the money paid,the only thing nice about it was the champagne cocktail. The staff we found to be friendly and courteous and the view is absoulutely amazing... More

Expensive drinks, well made to be fair. We got a table but seats were hard to come by & when they turned up they were covered in fresh wine stains. We were waiting over 30 minutes for a drink (in the middle of the day) Our frankly miserable waitresses, did not speak to us once, we ended up going to... More

We booked for afternoon tea on Sunday 13th as part of birthday weekend celebrations. The service was poor The food was poor in both choice and quantity Way overpriced and not worth the money - also a "weekend" surcharge in very small print! Best bit was the view Wouldn't go again and wouldn't recommend it either

Booked afternoon tea as an anniversary treat for myself and my husband. Although views stunning and staff very attentive, food and tea were below expectation. Tea was very weak, we had to ask for teaspoons. Overpriced and overhyped!! Unfortunately not a highlight for our special day

Having visited cloud 23 for afternoon tea before we booked for mums 80 birthday. The decor has been updated so is very fresh and relaxing . View is amazing and the staff are very attentive and pleasant. Unfortunately we were dissapointed with the quality and quantity of food for the price . Dont think we'll be back.
