Lovely afternoon tea

Love the decor in this place, very shabby chic. 5 of us ordered different afternoon teas and were not disappointed. The food is lovely but a bit overpriced.

Really upset to start on a negative but introduced a visiting friend to Richmond tea rooms last weekend and ordered the afternoon teas and prosceco. The quiche was to die for but the sandwiches were very disappointing. Not enough filling could only taste the bread. With hindsight I should have said something but didn't want to upset my friend who... More

This is my second time visiting here and it's just as good as the first time. Great selection of tea, cakes and food. The quality is good, service is good, what more do we need? :)

We have visited the tea rooms quite a bit and have recommended it to friends but our visit yesterday was underwhelming. The scones were dry and there are now less mini cakes on the queens tea. Service was also not great. We won't be back. Trying to book was not pleasant...it's not the Midland or Betty's. Don't get too big... More

My friend and I visited Richmond Tea Rooms today for afternoon tea,much to our disappointment. We were were seated and given a menu, but it then took 25 - 30 minutes for someone to even take our drink/food order? We asked two or three times to be told they had to serve someone else first.

Never has a pot of tea gone down so well! This place is a wonderful experience with a 'twenties boho' atmosphere. The cakes are superb too.

The decor in these tea rooms is brilliant, from the second you walk in you feel like you've fallen down a rabbit hole and into the mad hatters tea party. Everything is well catered for and the food is served quickly. Extremely yummy and enjoyable afternoon. Well worth a visit
