I've had several afternoon teas at 78 Derngate and they've always been wonderful, with superbly attentive and friendly service. I don't understand the fuss about the house though. There don't appear to be any original features and it's pretty boring in my opinion. I'm sure fans of houses will love it though.

Visited the house after being bought an afternoon tea for Xmas. My review is split between the afternoon tea which I'd rate a 4 and the house itself which I'd rate 2. Didn't know much about 78 Derngate except the macintosh link and that it was quite a small attraction. We were lucky in that we managed to get onto... More

A wonderful informative guide showed a video about the restoration first, before leading us through this fascinating house giving insight into why and how it came to be decorated in designs by Mackintosh, who never actually visited the place. His designs are, to say the least, dazzling - could anybody actually sleep in that guest bedroom with it's dizzy-making stripes?... More

Interesting little gem. Rejigged with next door providing more space for access. Some nice examples of Rennie Macintosh.

The house itself was great. Well maintained/renovated, really worth a trip. The place was very well presented and clean, the staff were friendly and helpful. The cafe is nothing special.

It was FAB - seats were in a great place. I liked it that much I've booked another 3 shows. Really looking forward to going back. When I rang to book my tickets the lady on the phone couldn't have been more helpful. Thank you

I have visited this house and had afternoon tea here several times. After my recent visit I realised I had never written a review despite repeat visits! Although small it is packed with detail and the shop has some fantastic things in it ranging from stationary to books and cards. The afternoon tea is relaxing and delicious. Any uneaten food...
