Down a little ginnel lies this small tearoom and it is a great place to grab a cuppa and a sandwich or cake while shopping. There is a good selection of light bites - sandwiches, salads, jacket potatoes and what looked to be very tasty cakes. A good selection of teas are served in individual... read more

I booked the tea house for a friends hen do. The manager was kind enough to bend her rules to cater for 10 of us, which we really appreciated and we paid a 25% deposit. We all had the afternoon tea which was amazing, fantastic food, the teahouse is beautifully decorated and so individual and lovely. The only problem we... More

We wanted to have a nice cup of tea and a slice of cake and a google search revealed the white rabbit as somewhere we would be able to do this and we were not disappointed. It is very small, and there are not that many tables but it is very quaint. The tea is served in lovely china with... More

I have been here twice and I absolutely love it. I can't wait to go again. The food is delicious, I absolutely love the crockery and the atmosphere. You do have to wait in the queue for a while but it's worth it!! My friends in London want to go to because they've seen my photos of the crockery etc.... More

I've always come here with my girlfriends to have tea and talk our afternoon away. It's really nice how you can eat and drink with fancy vintage cups and plates. I haven't personally tried their food as I have always come for afternoon tea. They make really nice cake that are not too sweet like how I found most cakes.... More

Beautiful tea cups and tea pots - each item so pretty and individual, even the little teaspoons. One of the best afternoon teas we have all had - lovely cakes and friendly flexible service. Will definately recommend to anyone.

Lovely staff. Lovely atmosphere. Lovely service. Lovely food. Went with friends for a last minute afternoon tea. Staff were really flexible and fitted us in. Minor issues is you can't prebook & they only take cash.

Both White Rabbit teahouses are small (27 seats max) and cosy, the atmosphere warm and as a rule friendly. Decor is tasteful, the cakes and scones are homemade, and everything bar coffee is served in a variety of china crockery collected from secondhand shops and sales, which all adds to the charm. The menu is simple but the food is... More
