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.

Mrs Bridges isn't cheap - sandwiches start at £4.10 but tea for one comes in a proper pot for only £1.65. The menu covers all tea shop classics - love eggs royale with hollandaise sauce, as well as a range of specials. Portions are generous, service is friendly and the tea shop is furnished with old pews and wooden tables... More

I stumbled upon it by accident and I haven't looked back! The food is lovely and it is a really quaint, dainty little place. The waitresses have been very pleasant when I have visited and the kitchen staff are equally as friendly. I really like it here. It is very good value for money too

This is a place that I found by sheer accident when I first came to Leicester over 15 years ago. Though the favourites have not changed, the food menu has continued to develop and offer more variety for the lunchtime diner. The same lady still serves upstairs and she epitomises the whole ethos of this quaint restaurant. Food is amazing,... More

The Leicester Office recommended looking at the independent tea shops in the centre. We chose Mrs Bridges. We had lunch - little pasta dishes, which we enjoyed, plus tea of course. For us as visitors, it was perfect to find a place with a bit of character. It was certainly a popular place - we would have liked to sit... More

My friend and I went to Mrs Bridges Tea house for a light meal this afternoon @Leicester city centre. The place seemed to look good and relaxed. The lady took our order was nice. The tea cups, which we got, the cleanliness were not excellent. When our food came, (served by another lady. I think she might be the owner... More

Should any business or school require doorstep, imaginative, fabulous sandwiches & cakes delivered to the door - then this is the place to phone. Your guests/staff will be delighted at the selection and the quality!
