I go to Mrs Bridges so so often now because it has built up such a good reputation of having reliably amazing service and exceptional food. Everything is very reasonably priced and the food is incredible! Amazing sandwich selection, salads are lush here too as well as the desserts! You are literally spoilt for choice whenever you go. The staff... More

Amazing little tea shop, you step back in time as you enter! Lovely art deco décor, established since 1700's. Adventurous, unusual sandwiches, homemade meals/cakes/sauces. Delicious puds - try the taster plate, with about 5 different desserts to sample! Highly recommended.

What can I say. ... For a little cafe hidden away - a hidden gem. We literally went to Leicester cathedral and walked slightly down the road and came across this place. Food is absolutely wonderful. So much so we went again a week later. Salads are yummy, gluten free food is first class and the thick chips with corniche... More

This was a review from a local and the English breakfast was just what the doctor asked. The place is very centrally located and has a lovely courtyard for a sunny day. Lovely staff and quite an institution I have been told.

Gorgeous location, food and attentive staff. . Had a relaxed lunch in the sunny courtyard! Sandwich selection is fantastic! Makes it difficult to choose with the large selection! Chips with parmesan and garlic were delish! Only drawback is cash only!!!

I have walked past Mrs Bridges Tea Rooms for years and never noticed it was there. It was only after looking for local tea rooms that I found it. Nestled between Loseby Lane and St Martins Square the tea rooms are in an old 18th century building. When I think of eating out I like to think there are three... More

very good food and service. But they do not accept credit cards and the sign that warns of this is small. Many people were caught out during our visit. What a shame as everything else was lovely.

This is a little gem whether for breakfast, lite lunch or something more substantial. The staff are friendly and the service is very good. There are daily specials with price options per courses. I particularly like the rarebit. Forget the larger franchise tea and coffee shops. Give this ago
