Lovely tea rooms

Had heard many good things about this place from several friends so visited to sample the legendary cakes! Fortunately it was quiet when we visited at 11am so we had no trouble finding a table or being able to see the cakes before we ordered. There was a good selection and the portions are huge... read more

The Tenth Hole is one of best places to go for coffee and cake - a real treat that is very reasonably priced. The building and location is good, and the service is friendly. Being dairy free, it is great to see ann amazing cake I can actually eat - highly recommended! There are some nice touches, including free water!

Fantastic cafe, we chose from the superb range of Gateux,s what a choice! after some deciding on either shell I go for that or this, I decided on a wonderful chocolate gateux. The cafe also has a great menu from meals to afternoon teas. This is a must visit when in Southsea, so popular that sometimes there is a queue,... More

Having visited the Tenth Hole on many occasions, continues to be superb for either Lunch or Afternoon Tea: one of the best selection of cakes you are likely to find at reasonable prices - the hardest decision is to choose what to have! The seating outside is some what basis and due to the popularity one often has to queue,... More

Decided to take the family here today after being recommended by a friend. We all loved it. We arrived at 12 and just beat the queues, when we left at 1 there was a queue of about 25 people! So many lovely little touches- the blankets to borrow if you're cold, help yourself to water, the little catch phrases on... More

Love this place. Whether you want a nice breakfast or just afternoon tea, this place always delivers great service and excellent fayre. It can get busy and you may have to wait, but it's worth it.

My favorite tea rooms! Always worth a visit when we go to Southsea for the day! The cake selection is always fantastic and always taste amazing! Perfect place to visit if you fancy a very sweet treat and a coffee! My new favourite cake is the Honeycomb Pie - give it a try, you will not regret it!

Went here with my family for a treat after getting vouchers for my birthday. Friendly service and the sandwich was tasty. The cakes were stunning. Had to bring them home as they were too big to finish. Will definitely go back...

My last visit here was for afternoon tea and I wasn't impressed. Decided to go here for tea and cake after having a sharing platter at the Queens Hotel along the road. Much better this time! Had to queue for a few minutes for a table and then again to order the food and beverages. I do find this annoying... More

A few of us went to grab a drink and a snack while the others went to play golf (you can't go and watch the golf on the green if you aren't playing - the staff were a bit rude when explaining that). The staff were ok, took us to a table and left us with a single menu for... More
