Maybe it was an off day as the last time we went it was wonderful. However, this time the kippers were boil in a bag, the orange juice was not fresh and it just wasn't as welcoming as usual. We'll wait for a while before going again.

We loved the tea served in white china pots and cups etc and the toasted tea cake was also nicely done. What made the whole so brill was the very good service... More

Once in a while I find an establishment that speaks of a world largley lost, where quality and artisan skill triumph over convenience and pure commercialism. At 'Time for Tea' you can enjoy a delicious ranges of meals, cakes and wines in a delightfully small restaurant. Relax and wait for a meal to be prepared just for you - if... More

Don't be mislead by the name of this wonderful French Brasserie.... it's so much more than somewhere just to have tea. Pascal serves the best fish soup I have ever had outside of France - proper French style with gruyère, croûtes and rouille! The onion soup is also authentic and delicious... I've also had his wonderful Eggs Benedict for breakfast.... More
