    Service was a bit lack lustre, was hard to get attention for more water and afternoon tea came without utensils to eat it with, had to go to the bar to ask for it as couldn’t get attention of staff. We had the French champagne option, it was the tiniest glass! Food was ok, I had the clean option and my company had the normal option.

    We liked the deco and atmosphere but there was a bit of musty smell that you smell sometimes in an old building. I felt not so great eating food in the smell. The food was nice but the portion is tiny and quite expensive but we just thought this is hotel price. We discovered a new Australian whisky on that day which we liked and bought a bottle straight after coming back from this place. It was good to get advice and recommendation on whisky and the price of whisky was reasonable. If the food is a bit better we'd go back but in the city there are so much cheaper and better options.

    The Whisky Bar has a good selection and it is a nice and convenient place to have a drink and meal before going to concerts at the Opera House or Conservatorium. The music playlist on Saturday night was not the best. Too loud and too much pop. A quieter jazz or blues theme would suit the bar much better.

    Our second visit and we LOVED it - we chose asian food dishes to share (satay sticks, curry puffs and dumplings) and they were superb! And of course - the cocktails are always excellent! Staff are divine too! Shout out to Donovan who helped us locate a scarf that we'd dropped before leaving - we called back whilst on the train home, Donovan helped find it and left it at the Sir Stamford for us to collect. Thank you SO much! We will be back!

    My phone call information the day prior about adding an extra person wasn’t acted on. Our table didn’t have enough space to put a plate and tea cup down.

    My guest and I were accompanied by a 13-month baby in a push-chair for afternoon high tea, so appreciated the high chair provided and the excellent attitude and actions of staff.

    As a whisky bar enjoy one of their whisky Cocktails... They are delicious! The best for me is the environment. The place is a really pretty and old style bar.

    Food was enjoyable. We found the service a bit slow as staff seemed confused and distracted. Staff were dealing with technical computer issues over the phone in the dining room which was not ideal when we were trying to enjoy a relaxing meal.

    The service was non-existent. It was almost impossible to get any attention and the dirty plates and glasses were left on the table. Such a shame as the bar itself is atmospheric and cosy.

    This is an excellent venue for High Tea- which we had with a group of ladies. They also have a light menu for having with drinks. It is an elegant bar. The hotel has Period Decore- very nicely decorated- comfortable lounge chairs as well as tables and chairs. Really lovely high tea. Would highly recommend this venue.

    Good customer service. Scones should be served fresh and warm and not microwaved and hard in the middle.
