Amazing

Alice in wonderland type theme tea room. Suitable for all Great food, including sandwiches, cakes, massive scones, afternoon tea, coffee and cocktails. Highly recommend and if there are lots of you then I'd book the tent as it seats quite a lot of people.

In the weekend people queue to get in. The decor is lovely, the serving is nice as well. We went for breakfast and had eggs benedict. I liked the food a lot. Tea and cake was quite nice too. They refill the pot for free. I loved the hole experience. As a price it wasnt cheap but it's worth it... More

A party of 10 of us went to Richmond Tea Rooms to celebrate my baby shower. The lively atmosphere and quirky decor means its a fun venue for this sort of gathering (although the room was extremely warm which was pretty unpleasant), and the staff were all friendly and attentive. But the food was a real let down. Most of... More

Booked a table for 6 on a Sunday afternoon. Arrived 10 mins early and table ready 5 mins after scheduled. Table secluded and atmosphere and background music fitting. Orders only taken at least 15 minutes after being seated. Tea brought 10 minutes thereafter but food presented after a further 30 minutes by which time teas were all stewed and tepid.... More

Came here for a birthday afternoon tea with three friends. The place was packed and a great lively atmosphere. Staff were extremely attentive and very patient as we kept asking for more time to decide as the menu offered so much choice. Food was great, Prosecco was delicious and the bill was the best bit!

Have stopped for a drink, lunch and afternoon tea in the past... all of which have been exquisite! Can get quite busy but worth the wait.

We've been over half a dozen times in the last two years, and our recent visit matched the usual high standards we have come to expect. Service is relaxed but friendly, the cakes are home made and delicious. Try the Queen's afternoon team you won't be disappointed!

My friends and I went to this restaurant for lunch and overall the service and food were great. We did notice it was rather quiet, which wasn't a problem as such, but we couldn't get into any of the others nearby as they were all full. We put this down to the fact that Richmond Tea Rooms is slightly out... More
