Steven welcomed us and explained everything, we up graded to the Champagne which was a treat. The sanwich selection was varied and on both white and brown bread, the scones were warm with plenty of jam and clotted cream, and the pasties were delecious, we had to bring a goody bag home! The surroundings are stunning, and it really was... More

We were greeted with a smile by the friendly bar staff who did everything they could to explain the afternoon tea menu. The setting and afternoon tea location at Opus makes it special; and, whilst the food is not the most unique you can find, I found the service team to be faultless. They even provided a surprise Birthday plate... More

My sister treated me to afternoon tea her for my birthday. She has had afternoon tea here twice before & on both occasions had an excellent tea - hence the reason she treated me.

This pub has it all --- be it afternoon high tea or evening drinks and cocktails. It gets busy during the evenings and has a lovely atmosphere. NB -- it would be nice if they increase the staff complement as service can be slow

£21.50 per person for afternoon tea, we were a party of three and one of us had never experienced a cream tea before.....what a disappointment it ended up being. First of all we were offered a table in a very empty and dark red restaurant more suitable to an oriental dining experience than an English afternoon tea, we requested the... More

I was tied between 3 stars or 4 but I gave this place the benefit of the doubt. I had the braised beef on a bed of garlic mash which was good quality despite lacking the star flavour that the restaurant aspires to. The chocolate tart dessert was okay. I'd requested the chocolate cheesecake that was on my drinks lost... More

Just returned from afternoon tea and it was well worth the visit. A variety of sandwiches, delicious scones and a selection of sweet treats. Also an unlimited supply of tea which was great. Will definitely be recommending to family and friends!

Description
The dramatically glamorous surroundings of Opus One are a sharp riposte to the Italianate façade of the Radisson Blu Edwardian Manchester in which it is situated. An extravaganza of red chandeliers, glossy black woodwork and antique gold wall hangings give this striking central Manchester restaurant a bold, vibrant ambience. Cuisine is fittingly modern British, with locally sourced produce dressed up in excitingly eclectic flavours.
