I took my mum to Richmond Tea Rooms this week for her 60th birthday and we were not disappointed. We did plan on having the afternoon tea but after seeing the delicious sandwiches and cakes on the menu we opted for those. The food was so fresh and as silly as it sounds the salad that came with the sandwich... More

I visited on a Friday evening around 7.30pm. The food was plain and simple, which was exactly what I wanted. I started with soup and bread, followed by ham and mushroom omelette with chunky chips. I also had half a pint of lager and the lot only came to £13.50. I thought it was a bargain considering it tasted like... More

Who could tell from the rather grimey street where the entrance is that you would be immersed in a fantastical world for tea?? It's beautiful; and relaxed, simple food done nicely and great tea. I've been a few times as a couple, but this time with family and friends was unique in that my kids didn't complain :) Had a... More

Been coming here a number of times now since it opened and always enjoyed. This afternoon; seemed more busier, squashed, noiser and starting to look frayed. Number of staff behind the counter but difficult to get service. Drinks arrived in good time and tasting good. Food well presented but could have been better.
