A recent discovery and what a surprise. Hidden down a back street near Minshull Street Crown Court. As soon as you walk into the restaurant it had the 'wow' factor with its chintzy/Victorian décor. China teacups and teapots, very genteel. Excellent food and a great place for Afternoon Tea which looks more like a banquet with all the lovely cakes... More

I've been 3 times to Richmond tea rooms and each time has been a little bit different. The food is lovely although yes it is a little expensive if you go for a queens tea which is 18 pound, ouch!! The service is hit and miss sometimes, but most of the time your order is taken politely and your tea... More

Hidden away, amidst the bars,nightclubs and the coach station off Portland street, is a gem of a place you wouldn't expect. When night falls, the area bounces with life and a colourful vibrancy that is a delight to the senses. During the day, you need to hunt this gorgeous tea room out, and those same senses will be delighted. From... More

After reading and hearing good reviews about Richmond Tea Rooms, I was looking forward to being treated for my birthday by a friend. Unfortunately, I was very disappointed. We visited for afternoon tea on a Saturday afternoon and felt there could be a lot of improvements The good points were: * Food arrived quickly * Didn't have to wait as... More

We had lunch at the richmond tea rooms yesterday. The food was brilliant, but the standard of service was second to none. We were looked after as we came through the door by Derek, who was charming and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for him. I would like to say thank to Derek and the other staff for a... More

We arrived about 12.30 on a Sunday, and despite not having booked we were promptly ushered to a lovely table in the rear section of the tea rooms. The food and drinks arrived very quickly despite the place being so busy, and service was super friendly/attentive without being intrusive. We loved it and would have lingered far longer had we...

I've visited a few times and the service and food is always fantastic. The atmosphere is enhanced by the quirky decor. It does get busy so sometimes we have to wait for a table but its worth it! I especially enjoy the sandwiches and cakes on offer for a sneaky lunch on the weekend. Will definitely be back again, I... More

I have been here a few times and have always been impressed with the selection of cakes, food, teas and coffees. The place itself is great. I know it can be very busy and last time we waited over an hour but that was at lunch time. However, the last time I went, it was 4.30pm on a Thursday and... More
