It's all about the farmers tea!!

Went on 19th of may with some ladies from work (6 in total) would definitely recommend booking a table! The food was delicious, and staff were brilliant! I would definitely recommend, great prices too! Can't wait to return!

We booked here yesterday for lunch for a birthday treat. I had a farmers afternoon tea, which consisted of a sandwich, scone - which tasted like it was cooked that morning really really fresh, crisps and a salted caramel cupcake - which was really nice, not too sickly sweet. I was absolutely stuffed, I'm glad I shared it with my... More

This is becoming a regular haunt for my friend and me - it's addictive! Today I had The Farmer's Tea - houmous and roasted vegetable sandwich, a scone with jam and clotted cream, a pot of Earl Grey and a big fat vanilla cupcake. All for a tenner! Everything was served so beautifully on dainty china plates and in cute... More

Having been here many times since it opened I have only just got around to reviewing it. There are always a lovely supply of cakes to eat in and the sandwiches are very good. My only remark is that it would be nice if you could have the same selection of cakes as a take away customer. You used to... More

Another lovely lunch, booked a couple of days ahead for Friday lunchtime but they only had space for us on the sofa, but we went ahead anyway. Well, we were looked after fabulously again, food was lovely, service was prompt, efficient and friendly. We were offered a table as soon as one was available which was nice although we were...

I've been going to the The Parlour Tea Rooms since it opened and have always had a great experience. Great customer service, lovely food and a great location for meeting friends for lunch.

Having been here many times before, this visit was a let down :( Despite the tearoom not being busy at lunchtime, the service was incredibly slow, the staff were dismissive, rude and very unfriendly. The sandwiches/paninis were of a good standard, but the cakes were very dry and the choice was rather limited. I have previously enjoyed visiting here with... More

My first visit to the Tearoom but not my last! Friendly service, good selection of delicious cakes and nice selection of sandwiches. Somewhere different to go with friends or family.
