We ordered 'Queens afternoon tea' which consisted of a section if sandwiches, a mini quiche, a fruit tart, chocolate brownie, key lime pie and scones. Everything was... read more

There were 11 of us in total who all enjoyed the atmosphere and the place. The tea room was beautifully designed and the food was lovely. The highlight of our lunch was Ollie our waiter. A couple of the girls in our group took a shine to him. One of the girls was particularly disappointed that she could not have... More

came here for afternoon tea on Saturday. They don't accept bookings for parties under 6 people on the weekend so we just walked in. There was a 90 minute wait for a table, so we went shopping, and the lad on reception rang us when a table came available. It was definitely worth the wait, the decor is amazing and... More

We've been coming to Richmond Tea Rooms for a couple of years now and visit at least once a month. We love the theme of the restaurant and the atmosphere.. It's always crazy busy even though its a bit tucked away which speaks volumes for the service and quality of the food. We've tried pretty much everything on the menu... More

Tried Richmond Rooms following people's recommendations and it was well worth a visit. Colleague and I had smoked salmon with scrambled egg, heap of rocket, "doorstep toast" [Richmond's description] and a pot of Richmond's own blend tea. Generous portions, appetising presentation, delicious. Too full to eat the cakes though so will be going back for them. Staff are very welcoming... More

This my second visit to the Richmond tea rooms, last Saturday. I wanted to surprise my friend with a "pre-hen party" as I couldn't make her main one.

Stopped here for breakfast with my other half as we waited for a train. Beautful interior. We got in before the Sunday morning rush, by the time we left the place was packed with couples, families, small children. A great atmosphere, but.......

This was the best afternoon tea I have ever had! It truly was the mad hatter experience. The food was delicious and the staff were so friendly. The only thing I could complain about is the fact that you can only make bookings for 4/6 people depending on the day. We had to go 3 times before we eventually got... More
