That's what I call Afternoon Tea!

This was a wonderful Xmas gift. Not a teabag in sight. Beautiful original decor. Good food and excellent staff. And a box to take home what we couldn't manage to eat. Very civilised.

I love this place and try to go regularly when I am in Glasgow. Last visit, for the first time, I opted for the full afternoon tea - sandwiches, scones and cake. For the first time ever, I was disappointed. The rolls were dry and hard to eat, cakes were bland in flavour and overly sweet. I wish I had... More

My friends and i dropped in here on a saturday afternoon. None of us had been before or knew what to expect. Inside it is small but beautiful. We hadnt booked so had to sit at the bar, but that was no problem. We didnt look at the food menu, just drinks and cupcakes. There was a great choice and... More

I have been twice to Cup Tea Lounge. The interior decor is all vintage tiling and chandeliers with high ceilings do it is a unique and beautiful setting. I think if you get the 5pm deal then it is good value for the afternoon tea etc. but probably a bit dear if you just get it straight from the menu... More

I'm really glad I booked afternoon tea here. It was a birthday present for my mum and we both really enjoyed our experience. The food and presentation were both lovely (particularly impressed at the straight-from-the-oven scones and the timer for my tea pot!), our waiter was very professional and friendly, and the ambience was pleasant and relaxed. There's enough space... More

First visit. My daughter and I having a girlie day. If you want drinking and dining in style then look no further. I could have sat for ages admiring the tiled surroundings, rare to see such workmanship, loved it. Had cupcakes and teapot cocktail which comes with dainty tea cups. Everyone likes something different. I'm a huge gin fan, have... More

Christmas present of a champagne afternoon tea for two - absolutely delicious. So much food we took a doggy box home and shared - so we were very popular as the cakes are simply fab. Great atmosphere, lots of room - none of that horror of being pressed up close to other diners - and the staff couldn't have been... More

Really lovely place for lunch, great range of teas and cupcakes. The lunch menu is really good! Good for vegetarians. The interior is beautifully traditional.

This is the second time I have reviewed the Cup Tea, and it didn't disappoint the second time around. Three of my friends and I visited the restaurant for tea/coffee and delicious scones and cup cakes. I had hot chocolate and a pear and cinnamon scone; one of my friends had a white chocolate cup cake and tea; another had... More
