A little dated, fancies ok but sandwiches just average. Staff friendly but it's quite expensive for what you actually get.

I have been to Richmond Tea Rooms before and I must say the service was excellent, the only problem was the wait time, 2 hours for a table. Previously I have had family up to visit and have wanted to visit the tea rooms, we went a few months back but failed to get in as wait time was 3... More

Lovely place to have lunch or afternoon tea - we were there as a treat for my daughter's 21st. Hidden away down an alleyway, if you didn't know about it, you wouldn't know it was there which is perhaps part of its charm! It is a nice surprise when you step inside.The staff were very welcoming - in particular our... More

This was my daughter's treat for my birthday. We enjoyed the surroundings, service was excellent, food arrived promptly. I feel the price is the same as other tea rooms in Manchester.
