I was taken here as a treat and what a lovely place! 1940's décor and music playing. Had a generous helping of homemade fruit cake and coffee which was delicious. Will certainly be visiting again!

Enjoyed some lovely cake here. Usually I can't eat cake made by anybody else, due to a dietary restriction, but the ladies here were very obliging and found something I could have - which just happened to be my favourite carrot cake! Wonderful.

Nice selection of cakes and sandwiches for afternoon tea - but nothing special - and did not feel welcomed - and comparatively with other options in Peterborough extortionately expensive at£13.50 per person - need to be much more accommodating to guests and look at prices. Vintage feel nice but not worth paying the extra for - homemade cakes nice and... More

Lynne T, Owner at Sophie T's Vintage Teashop, responded to this review

The cost of afternoon tea is £12 per head for parties of less than 8 or £13.50 for parties of more than 8 which includes a service charge. Your organiser would have been made aware of this in writing at the time of booking. For large parties afternoon tea comprises of a selection of sandwiches, to include smoked salmon and... More

Came in this afternoon with a friend, we were both very pleased with the service that was provided. As this was just a light snack & a catch up we opted for a pot of tea & fruit scones, which were delicious. Will be returning again in the near future.

Lovely little place, we had the afternoon tea selection and it was a very generous portion! Nice food and nice atmosphere. Any left over food you can take home. I would say it is more suitable for grown ups and not children. I have a young child myself but it was nice to have a more grown up atmosphere and... More

We pulled off the A1 and drove in to Yaxley, found this charming tea room. Home made cake and vintage everything from the teapot to the decor.. Fantastic, every village should have a retro tea shop. The signs were fun "we don't have wifi, talk to each other!" And "we don't do fast food, just good food as fast as... More

We have visited Sophie T's many times during the past few years, not only for the wonderful ambience of its 1930s/1940s setting, complete with period music playing softly in the background, but also for the delicious sandwiches, scones, crumpets and cakes! The piece de resistance is the Sophie Tea which consists of an old-fashioned three-tier cake stand laden with hand-made... More

Took my daughter to Sophie T's today for a treat after finishing her exams. Lovely place to visit that's a bit different with a real vintage feel. Excellent service and food in a lovely homely atmosphere. The cakes are delicious and the sandwiches too. Would recommend The Sophie's special, but there is a lot for one. The staff are very...

My husband and I decided we'd like a cup of tea after a bit of shopping but when we got to Sophie T's and saw the menu it was an easy decision to have a late lunch. The egg and cress sandwiches were simple and tasty. Accompanied by some crisps and salad it was the perfect light bite. If we... More
