I booked a table for Afternoon Tea and it was everything I had heard. All the sandwiches, scones and cakes was freshly made and superb. The staff were excellent and very attentive. I can also recommend their cocktails, which went down very well and a fantastic choice of teas and coffees. If I was being very picky and it certainly... More

This was one of the best afternoon teas I've had. I am highly gluten intolerant and possibly celiac and I ordered the gluten free afternoon tea option which is available every day. Everything was perfect. The bread for the sandwiches were super soft and the scones were lovely. The little cakes were also really delicious. My husband had ordered the... More

Delicious eats, great selection of teas and cocktails. Freshly baked scones. It was such a treat. When the staff realised we were unable to eat everything they offered us boxes to take leftovers with us which was greatly appreciated as we had a 3 hour train journey later in the day. Although when booking it states at busy times parties... More

I went with my mother in law for morning tea. We got mini rolls with egg bacon and sausage, mini scones, muesli and mini Danish pastries! The food was lovely. The tea was also very nice. The only thing that was not so great was that we were charged for extra tea! Usually if i go somewhere for a similar... More

Two of my sisters and I had a lovely afternoon tea in Cup. Everything was done to perfection and the choice of teas was first class. Service and staff were just lovely. A beautiful old building and interesting interior as well.

A group of my friends and I stopped here for afternoon tea. They were very accommodating to suit our personal preferences in terms of what sandwiches were wanted and any changes we wanted made. Coconut cream tea was absolutely delicious. Scones still warm from the oven. Decor was lovely. Staff helpful. All in all I was absolutely delighted. I will... More

Visited Cup for an afternoon tea with my mum on my birthday. We were shown promptly to our table and the waitress gave us a quick run through of what was on the stand and took our tea order. Food, tea and glass of bubbly all arrived in good time. Everything looked great visually. Rolls were lovely and fresh. Scones... More
