Despite great tea, great reviews and a nice location by the oak in the shopping centre, this shop has now closed. It had some pretty tough competition it must be said, with various large coffee chains nearby. I walked past today and the unit has been boarded up.

Went to tea Monkey for the first time today, with an assistance dog in tow. Young man who served me was so welcoming and helpful. Offered to take my tea to the table and got a bowl of water for the dog, all without me having to ask. Will definitely be going there again.

Let me start by saying I went to tea monkey for the first time in December 2012 and it was amazing, I loved it and reviewed it as such. However, as time has gone on, standards have slipped and I'm not going again because of this. It has been pretty poor for our last three visits now but I was... More

Decided to drop into Tea Monkey on Saturday afternoon as it looks nice from the outside. What a mistake. The cups (especially the rims) were filthy. Ours were so dirty I took them back to the counter. I told the girl who was working there I would like two clean cups, she actually picked up a new cup in front... More

Went there with my daughter, had been there before and loved it. The place looks run down, the glasses and teapots were filthy (like the dishwasher needed salt and rinse aid). They didn't have the variety of tea flower we wanted, the shelves which are normally crammed with gifts sets were empty and it was freezing! Apart from the nice... More

Called into Tea Monkey today for the first time as it looked very nice from the outside. How disappointing it was. Could not do a macchiato (even though it was on the menu) ordered a panini and the guy serving left it on the grill and the busied himself with clearing tables and chatting to people. After it had been... More

Great little place to stop when shopping in the Centre MK. Free wifi, superb cakes, and a great selection of teas. A welcome change from Starbucks and Costa

Had a lovely tea and my friend had coffee which was served by a really nice girl who was very polite. The chocolate cake that we had was very nice and moist which I thought was one of the best in Milton Keynes.

Was a random choice for a cup of tea and it appeared to be a lovely place for friendly talk or a little date. One of the best chocolate crisps cake I ever tasted and very tasty green tea served in glass thermo cups. Overall - excellent!
