Cream tea!

Lovely old building and a pleasant environment in which to enjoy a cream tea after exploring Bradford on Avon. Enjoyed the scone and homemade jam but was a little expensive. Would probably return!

We only popped in for a coffee before walking along the canal to Bath, but boy what a disappointment. It says outside it is award-winning but they seem to have been collected many years ago..... if they are award-winning now, it must be for the weakest coffee in The West. Lukewarm and pricey as well. Not a satisfying experience.

I first visited these tea rooms four years ago and it was amazing so I was very disappointed on visiting over the weekend to find it was not as good as I remembered. The scones were lovely but the small cakes were just messy and looked like they had been chopped up and put on the plate stand. I thought... More

A traditional vintage tea room. Very well selected menu. I got hazelnut, raspberry, merengue cake and my friend got Victoria sponge. The venu is a bit too small and narrow, though.

Entering Bridge Tea rooms is like stepping into a tourist board advert. Fortunately it’s all completely real and lives up to its promise. The interior is cosy and the decor in perfect traditional English tea room style. The smiling ladies who greet you are friendly, efficient and attentive; they really do seem to take an interest in their customers. We... More

Wonderful is the only way to describe the experience of having afternoon tea in this establishment. On our journey we've sampled a few but none have been as enjoyful as this. Tasty with a great level of charm.

Clearly harassed, the young waitress greeted us with "Just sit there" and walked off. When wondering about an alternative table, another customer told us we had to sit where we'd been told. The other two tables were intact dirty and had not been cleared. Hardly the welcome or customer service we'd expected. As locals, had this been a more positive... More

We love the Bridge Tea Rooms and always make sure to work in a high tip when we visit from the US. It is not to be missed.
