Great service

This tea shop combines convenience with a relaxed atmosphere and good food and drink. There is the added bonus of a chance to shop as well!

Looking at the other reviews, I wondered whether I was reviewing the wrong place, but I'm not so I must write as I find. This is the second time I have visited this restaurant. The first time, a couple of years ago, the service was glacially slow and the food, when it arrived, was just OK enough to satisfy a... More

Ordered high tea and two late breakfast meals, service wasn't great, a bit slow. particularly asked for brown bread but was told there wasn't any, so was surprised when our other meal ordered had brown bread. asked another member of staff who did get some brown bread to rectify this but didn't seem...

We were shown up to their dining room, a large light and airy room with well spaced tables. The conversations of others in the room blended into a welcoming murmur, our waiter allowed us time to settle in and read the menu, which had a wide range of dishes advertised, our order, not quite as on the menu, was written...

This place used to be a scuzzy old pub in my youth, but has been transformed into a charming place to eat and meet, surrounded by all sorts of tea and coffee-related stuff. It's obvious that the founder's enthusiasm for fine food and beverages lives on. A cheery welcome, friendly, no-nonsense and speedy service and a great menu. Delicious coffee... More

If I could give a minus rating for this over-priced establishment I would! Poor service, poor food, very over priced for what you actually receive. Would never recommend or go back there again. AWFUL!!! DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY HERE!!!!
