Tea party

Came here with family to celebrate an upcoming wedding. I've never been to a place like this before so was excited to try it. We had a table made up for us downstairs. It looked great , they did a fab job. Not too sure about the decor though, felt a bit childish. The sandwiches were lovely, just... read more

Where do i begin brought as a treat the outside has no curb appeal, 1 hour wait, fish on vegetarian sandwiches enough said. Was reccomended, sister in law went again in January and had the same issues, with so many places now offering high tea, they really do need up there game.

Came with 20 others, we were there for a hen do. Cold tea, cold coffee, dry sandwich's dry cakes, the list was endless. The place was dirty. Threadbare carpets, dirty tables.The mop which was outside kitchen was a dirty grey. Awful, I felt sorry for the ladies that were working there and who had to field our complaints.

BE AWARE, we were told that the tea rooms had changed hands. The afternoon tea options on the website are no longer available. The girl who served us told us that the previous owner wouldn't give them the password to access the website. Only staff there were two very young girls who were scruffy looking and didn't know what they... More

We have visited Blondies about 4 times now and have been really pleased with the afternoon tea. However, we went yesterday as a 'hen party' for afternoon tea and quite a number of us were very disappointed. The scones were dry, but the selection of cakes was poor and very stale. When I took cake from the stand the portions... More

I love Blondies and we visit regularly but sadly don't think we will return! The afternoon tea is just now too expensive and too much food with no home made cake just pre bought. Cold toasted sandwiches with burnt bread, no selection of cake or scone just get what you're given and had to ask for tea strainers. When booking... More

I'd heard great things about this place; I understand it has changed hands this year. The food was very average and not as described on the menu - jacket potato, should have been baked, scooped out and the potato mixed with cheese I think according to the menu. It was just a microwaved potato. Should have been served with homemade... More

Thank you to all at Blondies for out beautiful baby shower last Saturday. All staff were most friendly and helpful and couldn't have been more accommodating, food was plentiful and well spread across the table so everyone could get what they wanted and the little jugs of salad dressing were a lovely touch. Provided us with blu tack and then... More

This is one of the saddest reviews I have had to write on this site. But it is important that people are informed. I was one of the first visitors to Blondies Twisted Tea Rooms when it opened and over the past few years my better half and I, and our good friends, have been regular visitors. One of our... More
