My first visit to the parlour today, with my elderly mother who for medical reasons is on a very restricted diet. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and understanding, going out of their way to accommodate her needs. Sandwiches were absolutely spot on just how I would have made them at home. We also bought cakes to take home... More

When I rang they were very accommodating and I was able to get a table at the time I wanted. When we arrived our table was ready, and within a few minutes the waitress came to take our... More

Kept hearing great things about this place so suggested it to my hubby for my birthday. We wasn't disappointed. The food was really lovely and plenty of it for what we got for money. Staff were really friendly and helpful adjusting choices slightly where possible too. I changed mind on what cake I wanted and it wasn't a problem. Have... More

Very poor service....average food. We had so wanted to come away raving about this... More

We turned up unbooked as I didn't realise how popular it was. By special lucky chance they fitted us in. What an amazing experience for my taste buds! We had sandwiches and I had the ginger and lemon slice. It was to die for. The service was excellent and friendly. Will definitely be returning thank you

Went to the Parlour Tea Rooms with my wife and a friend. Had the most amazing cake and tea. Service was very efficient and friendly. Prices were very reasonable. The place was very clean and tidy. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

Lovely little tea place with a lovely tea served on lovely quaint china. In fact all just lovely. They make delicious cakes and specialise in one-off flavours so there is always something different from the norm to try out. We are lucky as it is not far from us. Wish they had a garden too but can't have everything!

Had a lovely lunch / afternoon tea in the Parlour Tearoom today with two close friends. Everything was delicious and we couldn't quite finish all our cakes so they kindly wrapped them up for us to take home. Highly recommend booking a table and sampling their delicious cakes. Thank you.
