The Richmond is a brilliant example of a characterful tea room occupying a gap in the market in central manchester. Unfortunately its popularity means you almost certainly have to queue (which isn't a great first impression) and (as we found) the service can be poor at busy times. My advice is to deal with these rough edges because the food... More

I would consider myself as a regular at Richmond tea rooms, I love the Alice in wonderland theme, the atmosphere & how welcoming this tea room is. I have visited with work pals, friends & family on many occasions & felt this would be a nice place to come to enjoy my anniversary with my partner. However, today I found... More

My friend gave me a day in Manchester, a visit to Richmond Tea Rooms and a night at the theatre as a birthday treat...and what a treat it was. Our party of four had to wait an hour and a half for a table on a Saturday afternoon...but it was worth the wait!! You have a winner here and it... More

Me and my husband decided to give this place a go as the start to a day/night spent in Manchester for our Anniversary. We fancied it as it sounded a little different from some of the other tea rooms we'd heard about. We arrived some time before 11am and were seated straight away in the front section of the place....

Went for Afternoon Tea to celebrate Mums 89th Birthday! Told them it was mums birthday and they made a fuss of her which she emjoyed so much. Afternoon Tea was so special a great treat which we will be doing again. All the team were fabulous and attentive nothing was too much trouble for them. Great place to go!

Very disappointed. I took my parents there today after months (years) of telling them how great it is. From the moment we arrived it simply was not good enough. The waiter that served us really needs some tips on customer service. Not friendly at all. We had to wait longer than expected to order, then wait for our tea, then... More

For my third visit to the Richmond Tea Rooms, I decided to take my daughter for a birthday lunch, as she had never been before. As on previous occasions, we were met by friendly helpful staff, shown to our table, but never felt any pressure to order quickly. The menu, as usual,was extensive and we both enjoyed our club sandwiches,... More

I took my daughter here for her 12th birthday, she has been dying to go for a long time after seeing it on the internet. It was really busy (Sunday lunchtime) and we were sat in the back room, which despite being very lovely, made the trip there a bit pointless as the only reason we went was to sit... More

Hi Emma Firstly we are very sorry that you couldn't be seated where you wanted . We were very busy on Sunday from the moment we opened .Rather than waiting for an hour for a table in the tearooms we seated you in the lodge area with you having little ones. As for your waitress we have ascertained who it... More
