Afternoon Teas are great

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.

Sand which today, was told you had gluten free bread... But you should also ensure the pre area is also gluten free. .. So I am not in agony on the sofa. Shame I thought I had finally found a lovely coffee shop I could lunch in

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

Had lunch here on 09/04/15, this was not my first visit and it most certainly will not be last. The tea rooms is quaint with traditional service from a most delightfully polite young waitress. I had welsh rabbit, delicious, tasty and satisfying with a pot of tea which gave me at least 2 hot cups of a hot tasty brew.... More

This was like going back in time, love the décor. We had a cup of tea, sandwich and a cake and it was a great experience. The waitress was very friendly and efficient. It can get quite busy and the only fault is that this place could be bigger to accommodate more people. Fantastic! Would recommend.

There are 2 White Rabbit tea rooms in Nottingham. We went to the one near L'Occitane as we had tried the other one first and it was full. We had to wait for a little while but it was worth the wait. It seems to be a very popular place and it may have been busier at it was Valentines... More

Mum and I decided to pop in here today (Mothering Sunday) after wanting to do so for a while - the Bridalsmith Gate cafe is always popular! Lovely atmosphere, attentive staff, ith the waitress being kind and apologetic as there was a small wait time for our order to be taken. We had tea served in kitsch vintage cups, and... More

A recent visit to this darling tearoom did not leave me disappointed. I visited with a friend for my birthday and as always the service and food was impeccable. The place is so beautifully designed from the lovely rabbit wallpaper to the individual tables and chairs. On this occasion we had called in for coffee and cake but even if... More

The White Rabbit is a regular spot for me and my mother. The service is great and the cake selection is fantastic! It's small, but this adds to the cosy feel of the place. Looking forward to my next visit!

I visited the White Rabbit off Bridlesmith gate this Sunday and had a great breakfast out with friends. We found a table quickly, service was excellent and the food was perfect for a light brunch. We even decided to prolong our stay for another coffee to try the cakes out. Enjoyed the trip so much I will be visiting again... More
