I've been here a few times and always happy to call in. It's a bit quirky, a booth is a treat (if free) and the Welsh rarebit is a must have! Friendly, reasonably priced and a lovely mix of people.

Great place for a cuppa, cake, lunch or afternoon tea (massive selection of proper leaf teas served in china cups). Would recommend the Alice's Rarebit & the place itself is worth seeing. A cosy place to get out of the cold and rain. Bit of a wait to be served when busy (maybe they need more staff?) but friendly service... More

A friend of mine organised a group of us to have a celebratory Christmas Meal at the Richmond Tea rooms. Because of the size of the group and the time of year, this time we were placed in the Lodge, which is adjoining the main room. This room has an old fashioned country lodge feel, with splashes of colour and... More

a girls Xmas meal 6th December. A group of 5 friends had the Xmas menu, it was an excellent choice of dishes, could have had them all, and a fantastic price. Really good value for money especially for drinks which usually hike the price up of a meal out. The atmosphere was great and the service was excellent , that's... More

Visited the Tea Rooms today. Had the greenhouse booked out for a meeting but when I arrived there were people in there. Turns out they had booked me onto a normal table despite me specifically requesting the greenhouse for our meeting when I made the booking two months prior. The manager was non apologetic, tried to pass the buck the... More

This place is just darling. With Alice-in-Wonderland decor and sweet treats, I recommend going here to celebrate anything with friends. The pink-haired hostess/waitress was delightful. Service was prompt. I noticed most people were having a regular lunch then choosing a treat from the case which is what I would do if I am able to return. I chose one of... More
