One of the best afternoon teas I have experienced. Great value for money at £15:90. If you are vegetarian then let them know otherwise you could only eat the cucumber sandwiches. Choice of 3 Jams with the lovely warm scone. 4 different mini cakes as well. Definitely recommend.

My partner and I had been looking in the area for somewhere nice to go for our first 'afternoon tea'. After looking around and seeing lots of places in the city centre, this one seemed ideal in a quieter location. Plenty of free parking outside, the hotel was grand and the staff very friendly. The tea itself was a bit... More

We very often visit this restaurant, but on the last few visits we have been really disappointed, the booking system is totally absurd, first you can only book for numbers of 6 and over, then we came to find they were taking bookings for two but we're then told they were fully booked, the next week we booked for two...

Many thanks for your review, following your recent meal with us. Firstly I am sorry for the confusion that has arisen, and I can only presume that it maybe down to a new member of the team taking your booking, and potentially getting slightly confused.

We dined at Ciro's during a weekend break at the Grosvenor Pulford. Having been to quite a lot of restaurants attached to hotels we weren't sure what to expect but Ciro's would not be out of place as a standalone bistro in the city centre. The waiting staff were all friendly and polite and the atmosphere was lovely and relaxed.... More

Stayed for an extra night at the hotel to wind down after all the planning. Breakfast was great and the carvery was fantastic, a little expensive but soooo nice so in the end its worth paying a little extra and enjoying it so much.
