Over the last three years I have visited this BTP countless times, usually several times a week, and used to absolutely love the place. Unfortunately I feel things have gone down hill a bit. The prices have suddenly increased quite considerably, and whilst I think they serve very good coffee, I object to paying 15p more for a similar sized... More

Hi, Thanks for your feedback. To clear up a few of your comments: Coffee prices: We have, as we do every year, upped the quality on our medium and dark roast coffees and increased the proportion of our more expensive Columbian top note. We have also agreed another deal with Yeo Valley to provide our milk, at an increased price... More

Visited here whilst waiting to go in the burger joint restaurant up the road, nice pretty pattern in the top of the latté, and tasted nice, but wasnt very hot at all. Unfortunately we didnt have time to ask for a replacement. Girl behind the till was a little rude and chairs were a little wobbly, also drinks are fairly... More

Hello Pete, We're really sorry you had a bad experiance with us! We strive to deliver the good quality hot coffee, and this really isn't our standard. The chairs are in the process of being replaced, sorry about that, if you could email us at whiteladies@bostonteaparty.co.uk, we can invite you in on a day that's good for you and give... More

Love this place, second visit and they really take care of how they make their coffees, which is a joy to see these days with too many unqualified, so called Baristas, serving in chain establishments. Well done to the team here, love it and great atmosphere - keep up the good work.

Good place to work if you're a student or want a relaxed place to meet. Not so good anymore though because they took all the sofas and comfy chairs away about a year ago to make way for more tables and chairs. All feels a bit crammed in now. Also food/cake is too expensive!!

I really like the food at Boston Tea Party and this was my first visit to the Whiteladies Road branch. Brilliant staff - a nice young man (I know, I felt old) suggested an espresso with tonic water when I asked for an iced coffee and approved my choice of the super salad. Both were delicious, so I can't find... More

I love BTP! Often in one or other of their branches (except Clifton Down) with friends and food or just for coffee. On this visit I asked about caffeine free teas and was impressed by the knowledge of the staff. I was further impressed to find that my loose leaf tea could be topped up with hot water for a... More

I called in for coffee and cake - I was staggered at having to pay £5.50 for a mediocre slice of cake and an indifferent latte! I wish now that I had complained and asked for my money back. See my review (today) of the Kings Arms just up the road where I had a better value coffee and cake... More

I come to BTP on Whiteladies quite often because it is consistently excellent for tea, coffee and food, which is locally sourced. The ambience is nice, you can read a book or work at your laptop quite happily not noticing the hours tick by, while enjoying the coffee and awesome cakes. If you're after something more substantial to eat then... More
