From the quirky interior to the lovely food and cocktails I have to say that Richmond Tea Rooms is definitely worth a visit. Our waiter Ollie couldn't do enough for us. Will definitely be returning! X

I've been to this venue on a few occasions now, I've always been really pleased with the service, the tea, and the atmosphere. On my last trip however, I was really disappointed with the service I received. I will say that the waiting staff were impeccable, polite, accommodating and ultimately, apologetic. Apologetic because of the rudeness of the supervisor on... More

Visited here with 2 other friends for a birthday treat. Very cute and quirky little place. Service attentive, all lovely staff with smiles. Champagne afternoon tea a delight. Plus we didn't feel rushed. A lovely afternoon thanks

We arrived at the tea rooms just before three to be told there would be a five minute wait for a table for three which was fine. We were taken to our table and picked what we wanted from the menu, our order was taken very quickly and our tea was served. All great so far but then disaster struck... More

Hello, Please accept my sincere apologies. I was made aware of your situation after the young lady who was looking after you got very upset that she had dropped your afternoon tea.

The place is just adorable. I would recommend visiting just for the sake of it. I'm not a big tea drinker or cake eater so I went with ice tea and some ice cream. Both were quite average. My two friends took a piece of cake to share, because the the pieces they offer are huge, and my mum went... More
