First visited as a student in 197...ahem...and it's still as good now. Soe of the staff **may** have changed, and the menu's been updated a bit, yet it remains the best team room of its type in Leicester. If you visit the city only once, you have to come here.

A friend and I visited for lunch one Wednesday and I was pleasantly surprised by the variety contained within the menu - salads, sandwiches (hot/cold), various sides and a good range of drinks were on offer. I went for the roast chicken and sausage sandwich - served on lovely fresh bread - with some garlic/Parmesan chips and a dandelion and... More

As a fan of tea and tea rooms I was severely disappointed in this one. Advertised as a tea room, it should be called a cafe. Expensive food, poor quality, tea bags and not loose tea, no offer of extra hot water for the tea pot. Seated at a small table for three people with uncomfortable seating, left for ages... More

visited this place for the first time on Sun afternoon with my daughter after reading the reviews on here and we loved it. My daughter who is quite a fussy eater really enjoyed the chicken and stuffing sandwiches and I had an afternoon tea with smoked salmon sandwiches and a cake and scones. We sat outdoors as the weather was... More

Absolutely love this place. So quaint, relaxing and fantastic quality. Will be taking a friend there next week for breakfast. Given the choice when in town I won't go anywhere else. (This is coming from a chef as well).

I was planning to write a careful review of this place but my faith in human nature was restored. Visiting two sick relatives in the city, I went to the Cathedral and was advised to visit Mrs Bridges Tea Room. It was coming towards lunchtime so my companion and I decided to eat. I had one of their special sandwiches... More

The food is always so good and I always try to pop in when I'm near the market. The service can be slow but worth the wait. Leicester Classic

This is one of my fave haunts. The service is always first class and it's a really nice soothing place to have some tea. I have been visiting this place since I was a kid and will continue to for many many years to come!

Stopped for afternoon teas for the first time when shopping with a friend yesterday. A lovely haven of calm behind busy streets. Sat outside. Food and drink fine, service with a smile. Excellent facility. Try it

Lunchtime - Service was slow and food was large in portion but small on quality. Drinking glasses smelled of fish bowl. All of us felt ill afterwards. Needs revamping - smells like school dinners inside.
