My friend and myself had a lovely afternoon tea with plenty of sandwiches, pastries, cakes. The scones are not served until you are ready for them as they are served warm, lovely touch. The tearoom itself is surrounded by lovely china dishes and older furnishings. The service was excellent and friendly.

As tearooms go it's fine with a passable offering , but really not worthy of the top restaurant spot on Trip Advisor listings......these rankings are for restaurants after all! The West End has a plethora of similar, more understated, venues that do not rely on hype or overcomplication..I'll stick to them.....the Blythswood and the Cup Tea Lounge are always a... More

Hi, and thanks for taking the time to visit and review us.

An incredibly fake atmosphere here of a time gone by, with good reason, the food is acceptable but the atmosphere was not enjoyable in the slightests. The staff also seemed friendly but there was an overbearing sense of disapproval and meloncholy to the place. Could be the vintage setting but all seemed austere and impoverished.

Hi Sasha Your review has us a bit confused in it's fragmented and mixed nature, so I'll do my best to respond as best I can. I'll deal with the main part of your review, the title............. So Fake. On entering the small tea room, you would have sat on a chair from the 1950s, at a table from the... More

Had an fabulous time today. A late treat for my mum. 4 people and enough food to feed plenty more. Everything freshly baked and as much tea as we wanted. Service was excellent. Friendly and homely. Would recommend this to anyone who enjoys something that wee bit different
