A really eccentric treat

My Dad (a committed anti-Royalist) would have been horrified to see me having tea in this shrine to the Royal Family. Every surface is covered with memorabilia of the Royals which creates a unique ambiance. But more importantly the food was very good. We had cheese on toast and then a scone and... read more

Came here for lunch with some friends for a day out in Brighton. Absolutely amazing. The staff were very welcoming and friendly, very cute tea room and as limited space it's not to busy which was nice. The food was great, more than enough. The staff were great at attending us making sure we had enough milk, water in our... More

We booked a table for 14 people for my sisters hen weekend. The owners were so organised and helpful. There were AMAZING choices of scones! Including "millionaire shortbread", "salted caramel", "rhubarb and custard." They came out with the most delicious combinations. The salted caramel had a caramel sauce and cream to go in the scone. The sandwiches were delicious, seasoned... More

Visited Brighton on the 20th May 2015 and by chance came across the Tea Cosy at a time we fancied a cuppa. The interior of this place is a sight to see and the service we got was extremely good. We asked for some scones to go with our tea and received lovely warm homemade scones with the best jam... More

After struggling to find somewhere to accommodate 22 hens for afternoon tea on a Saturday in April, we were glad we found this little gem! Communication prior to our arrival to organise booking/confirming numbers/dietary requirements/price etc was excellent, they were always quick to reply and were able to answer all queries. Having the place to ourselves was great; we had... More

I was taken here by a few friends who are studying at Sussex University and I have to say I was blown away. It was small and cozy, just like the punny name suggests, and the single waitress was sweet and friendly and got us our food very quickly. There was not many others there are the time, so I'm...

An extraordinary and unique, if, ever so slightly faded ambiance greets you at The Tea cosy in Brighton's most trendy, Kemptown. Originally set up as a shrine to Diana, Princess of Wales, The Tea Cosy now celebrates everything Royal, the walls and ceilings even being crammed with Royal Family memorbilia, spanning well over 100 years. Beyond that, both the service... More

We ordered a complete High tea. Everything was fresh and homemade. We were served by the mother and she was a friendly women. The daughter is the one that makes all the good stuff. Yes the place is crowded with royal ''clutter'' but that is what gives the place it's charme. To be sure that you will not be standing... More
