We recently visited the tea room as part of a hen weekend, we booked because the bride had visited previously and loved it! Whilst booking, I found the staff to be friendly and they were able to sort out what we needed. On the day we had a few transport issues people were coming from all over the place, and... More

This is the place that my work friends and I visit the most for an after work treat. The food and service are excellent in a wonderful, quirky, Alice in Wonderland theme. We love it. :)

Had a late afternoon tea (545pm) in a party of 6. The layout of the Tea rooms is really quirky with an Alice in wonderland theme. The decor of the tea rooms is well laid out and tastefully decorated. We were fortunate to be seated in the Green House. The options of tea were extensive and once the sandwiches and... More

My daughter took me for an afternoon tea for my fiftieth birthday. It is so pretty, food was lovely, service excellent. This is a special place to visit and will not be a one off for us. The attention to detail is fantastic. This really is a must visit place.

I always order the queens tea. I think that it definitely has one of the best scones compared to other high tea places. Thought the cakes aren't as great. The service is not that great either.

First time to Richmond Tea Rooms. Don't like to give negative reviews, am an experienced cream-tea fanatic and this was a sad example of over-priced, poor quality. Various problems occurred in our group of 4. The soup I ordered was not presented to me, but another completely different type of soup. No alternative was offer, nor was I even asked... More
