Found this lovely place on a recent visit to Chester. Looked very inviting and the staff were friendly and helpful. As I am dairy free, a tearoom usually does not cater for my needs but they were able to offer a delicious homemade carrot soup, roll and dairy free spread, and tea with soya milk. My husband (who can eat... More

I came here for afternoon tea last month as part of a friend's hen do. I loved the Alice in Wonderland theme running through the place, down to the menu's. The tea, sandwiches and cakes were very nice. You could choose one individual cake/cupcake and these were very tasty.

Visited for tea and cake as we have seen the tearoom on Facebook. Having been excited to try the place it was a bit underwhelming. I was expecting it to be really quirky and unique, but it was just a bit average. The staff were lovely, the hot chocolate great (actually the best I've had for ages) and the cake... More

We decided to go for a bite here because it had been recommended. When we got there we were greeted by friendly staff. But I must say the paninis looked horrible. I think it was more the presentation that was lacking. Then I started looking around the cafe. I really think they should be more creative with the decor. It... More

I had planned on treating my mum and grandma to a coffee and cake here as i have been before and loved it. The cakes are great and normally a good atmosphere. This trip was extremely disappointing, we were seated and ordered 3 coffees, 2 cakes and a tea cake within 5 minutes of arriving, the waitress was lovely no... More

My daughter brought me here to impress me with the food and setting. The decor was well in character and provides a fun atmosphere. However I was wary as she told me that on a visit the week before she had been unable to have afternoon tea without a prior booking(it had been a Saturday) and when she went to... More

This was a return visit and I am afraid to say it is not now as good as it was. Has it changed hands? I seem to remember it being run by two women. A friend and I have a monthly 'coffee and scrummy cake' morning. However, there were only cupcakes available - brownies had been made but were not... More

We had tea and cake here. The tea was a breakfast blend and was really nice as were the cupcakes. Unfortunately the owner did not seem very chirpy and it would have been nice for him to smile a bit more.
