Lovely lunch with friends

Really pretty place for lunch, lovely location super food, pretty shop for mooching, in my eyes it's only downfall is that there are too many seats and I felt quite squashed - wouldn't like to be there on a hot day 😳

We were treated to afternoon tea today by our nieces to celebrate our Golden Wedding. What a beautiful tea rooms this is! It has had a lovely makeover since the last time we were there. The food they served us was absolutely delicious and well presented. We will definitely go there again. Well recommended.

Just literally returned from having Afternoon Tea a belated birthday present from my friend. Never even been to Halstead before which, in itself, seems a lovely area with some nice property. The Afternoon Tea was VERY nice and the cakes were just divine!! I have been to lots of West End hotels for afternoon tea and can honestly say that... More

Spot on destination for an end of walk lunch or posh afternoon tea. Lovely atmosphere and oddly interesting design. Great staff and food. Not that cheap; which is re-assuring!

Wow!!! Just returned home after having had one of the most delicious lunches I've had in a long time. Like a previous reviewer I had the sweetcorn fritters, and they were 'out of this world', and beautifully presented. The other members of the party were also 'raving' about their meals. Huge compliments to the chef. Such a lovely atmosphere. VERY... More

A hidden gem, food always amazing. Try the sweetcorn fritters.. Possibly the best food I have ever eaten in a restaurant. Cakes are delicious. I do agree with other comments that it is a bit cramped. Shop there sells lovely bits and bobs. Worth booking to avoid disappointment as it gets very busy. Can't wait to go back to try... More

Had lunch here recently. Yes it was busy, but that's because it is good. GREAT food. Delicious, all home cooked to order, so yes it was a bit slow, so you need to be in good company to chat! It was slightly tight on space, but not that bad, maybe not the place to choose if you are very large!... More

I went for breakfast last week and I agree with other reviewers who have said that the number of tables that are squeezed in is just a few too many. I understand that bums on seats are what make profits, but I just don't like being quite so squashed in when I'm eating out. The food took quite a while... More

First, let me say I love afternoon tea - I reckon I know a good scone when I eat one and boy did I eat one here! I hadn't had lunch as I'd been warned by the friend I went with that the portions were substantial so I started with a smoked salmon and cream cheese sandwich. I asked for... More
