Wasn't sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. Arrived for a Sophie's Special Afternoon Tea. Lovely fresh bread and a choice of any sandwich from either price range made on order so no curly edges. Two freshly baked mini scones with oozing clotted cream & jam & then your choice of cake from the behemoths of the day. Choose... More

The tea shop was quirky and had a pleasant atmosphere. A good selection of sandwiches, especially the cucumber in the tuna and cucumber sandwich. The cakes and teas were very good but they gave us a strainer for the tea leaves which was difficult to use.

Bought a voucher for afternoon tea for 3 for my mum as part of her Mother's Day present and booked for last Friday afternoon. However, when we arrived we were told we were an hour late and that our table had been released. Rather than try and be accommodating and not aportion blame, that is exactly what they chose to...

Our booking system is in place to ensure that customers have a table reservation at a time to suit them. To hold a table for more than half an hour is frankly unacceptable when there are customers waiting to be seated. When bookings are taken we always repeat back the booking details to the customer to eliminate any mistakes. There... More

Having been told by a few friends that Sophie's was a lovely tea shop, I decided to take my cousin there for a light lunch. The décor was certainly quirky and well thought out and we found it quite amusing. There were 2 tables free and we were given a menu very quickly. What a disappointment. Very ordinary selection of...

What a shame you didn't use more of the time you were in the restaurant to actually read both sides of the menu! Apart from drinks there are over 40 items on the menu to choose from including our ever popular Sophie T special (afternoon tea) Ploughmans, homemade cakes and scones and Eggs benedict and Eggs Royale to name but...

Lovely environment, food and people. Altogether a perfect lunch for a cheap price. Such a busy little place and popular with people. Couldn't have asked for better service even though it was busy. Better than any chained teashop! I will return.

If you want to try something different then head along to Sophie T's.They don't advertise,but then they don't need to.Tucked away in a quiet back road of Yaxley this delightful little shop will take you back to the time you went to tea with your grandma or your aunty!Decked out in 1940's style,with table cloths,tea-pots and cups and saucers (yes,remember...

We took our friend for a surprise birthday lunch. we chose the sophie t special. There was lots to choose from and it is very good value for money. The food was fresh and very tasty especially the fruit scones, they were very fruity with a yummy taste of cinnamon, wish I could buy them in a bulk buy as... More

Thank you for a well made lunch with a nice relaxing atmosphere in a beautiful quaint little tea shop. Not only do I rate the Tea room highly I also rate the owners highly, they are friendly, warm and a well loved addition to the village. The cake is to die for :) and the scones were full of fruit...
