I was very disappointed! On entering the tea room, the first thing that struck me was the damp, musty smell, they clearly have a problem with damp. Secondly, the place is tatty, I know it's meant to be an old fashioned tea room but it is tired & in need of a revamp. However, I did like the mis-matched crockery,... More

Dear Wendy _ Mike Thank you for taking the time to write your review. Yes it is a fair point we feel our lovely little tea room needs a little TLC Yes we do agree our lovely tea room has seen some hefty traffic in the last 4 years and we were in the process of redecorating. Sadly we were... More

I love my cake & coffee in non chain cafes and I was hoping Blondies Twisted Tea Room would be my regular, having visited I am not so sure and disappointed. First impressions were good on my first visit, midweek mid morning and the tea room was empty. We sat and were told we would be served shortly, we waited... More

I'll be honest, when I arrived for a lunch date with friends at 11.30, I was a little concerned to be greeted by a lady who seemed a bit hectic and nervous that she would be running the tea room on her own for the day. It took a while for her to get things going, but I'm so glad... More

I love tearooms and this is a great little one in Hanley, wish there were more of these, would suit well at Trentham gardens!! Amazing cakes and great prices, good but slow service, and wasn't busy the time I went but worth the wait

Visited the tea rooms yesterday with my friend for my birthday! On arrival we were shown to our table that had been set out with lovely vintage cups and saucers. Our table was downstairs and this room was lovely. I had read a review about the downstairs room smelling funny but I did not experience that and would ask specifically... More

So far as Tea Rooms go, Blondies is an excellent place to stop and enjoy a bite to eat over a pot of steaming hot tea. Based within easy walking distance of the Shopping Centre (and city centre car parks), this Tea Room is a must visit for anybody who enjoys a speciality cuppa. We've visited often and found the...

I loved this place. The food is great, it's presented nicely. The selection and the quality of the cakes are lovely. I had brunette afternoon tea which was a toasted sandwich of your choice, with a selection of cakes. I opted for a blue and white chocolate scone which was yummy. I also had a lemon meringue roulade which again... More
