Excellent service from both owners and staff. The cream teas come with a gluten-free option and both taste superb. The scones arrive warm with a generous helping of clotted cream and jam. It's a great place to sit out on a sunny day and watch the world go by whilst enjoying the great food. Would certainly recommend a visit and... More

My partner and I visited the tea rooms hoping for some breakfast. We'd arrived before the rooms opened but the staff welcomed us in and got us drinks before they were due to open! The staff were eager to aid us and were very obliging when I asked to check if the veggie sausages were vegan. They weren't but the... More

We went to the Singing Kettle after reading all the good reviews! Firstly,the reception was a little hostile on arrival,nobody behind the counter. After placing our order,the food did not take long,we were expecting great things! The bread for the sandwiches was cheap sliced (supermarket basic)there was not taste to it. The fillings were ok. The scone was not freshly... More

On a grey rainy day we felt as though the sun had started shining upon entering the Singing Kettle as we had a wonderfully warm welcome. Nothing was too much trouble & the breakfast we both had was fresh & cooked to perfection. The coffee that comes with the breakfast was delish & after i tried another coffee, a Mocha... More

We were made to feel welcome as soon as we entered & it was plain that several of the other customers were regulars - a reassuring sign. John & I really enjoyed our cup of tea & I regret not asking what make it was as it was even better than my home brew. John enjoyed his brunch & I... More

We ordered 2 cheese toasties and a pot of tea and was charged over £12 pounds - very expensive and not worth the money.

I really don't understand all the good reviews about the Singing Kettle...my experience was dreadful! First of all I could hardly get in the door and the "push hard" sign was totally underestimating the ridiculous strength you would need to actually get inside. My partner and I ordered our sandwiches and scones and were left waiting almost 25 minutes just... More

Have just returned to Jersey from a 4 day break in Torquay. We were so impressed with The Singing Kettle that we went there every day for lunch / snack. The food is great as is the service and the atmosphere is friendly and welcoming. I can recommend the cheese scone with onion marmalade and cream cheese - a savoury... More
