Very busy Afternoon Tea service on a Saturday in Glasgow, but everything was brilliant. Added a small bottle of pink proseco each to our order but still great value. Tasty sandwiches, fresh baked scones, nice tarts and a good cup of coffee as well.

What a fabulous find in the centre of Glasgow! Service was first rate (make sure you book in advance), venue v interesting and food fabulous. More interesting than your traditional afternoon with an added Tunnocks Glasgow flavour. They also do an amazing afternoon tea for kids which is well thought out and very reasonably priced. And not to forget the... More

Booked a breakfast tea to finish off a shopping trip. Exactly what we hoped for. Attentive staff but not over powering. Presentation and delivery of food was very good. As other have stated don't eat before you go as we could not finish the food provided, however the box provided to take the pastries home was well received. This business... More

Lovely food, relaxed atmosphere. We enjoyed a huge selection of teas, and food that was of very good quality. Portions were very good, don't eat before you go! Highly recommend for afternoon tea, but book, it is understandably busy.

Visited this afternoon - one of the best afternoon teas I've had, food delicious & we got a box to take home what we couldn't manage! Strawberry tarts, tunnocks teacakes, variety of 4 sandwiches which were all lovely, plain scones, blueberry scones with jam & clotted cream, cheesecakes, cupcakes & choc chip cookies! I had tea & my friend had... More

Had a really nice morning tea here as part of my birthday gift from my son. The staff were attentive and helpful and the food was amazing. The surroundings are absolutely beautiful.

Met with a large group here for afternoon tea. The venue is really lovely and we didn't mind being split between two tables. We had been told we had an hour and a half on booking which I thought was a little tight for a large table...and it was. The service was ok but if you want people turned around... More
