I must recommend the scrambled egg on toast! It is the best I've had! It's always a pleasure to visit this café as the staff are pleasant and the food excellent. Whoever does the baking, top marks!

The food is very good, a limited range as a tea room should have. This is not a fast food joint nor a cafe. The atmosphere is relaxed and laid back as it would have been in the Victorian age. Proper crockery and proper top quality tea and coffee, if you like cakes you will like it here. If you... More

This remains a traditional tea room despite the modern music backdrop! ( It would be much more in keeping, in my view, to have music such as Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald to give it the proper atmosphere.) That apart, the coffee is very nice and there several varieties to choose from and the cakes are delicious and there are a... More

I visited Barnsley on Wednesday of last week. I went into The Victorian Tea Rooms after been advised by a friend that it was welcoming and nice. The scones and tea were lovely. After speaking to the blonde mid 40's lady, I found that she and her mother make all the food themselves. I was very impressed and when we... More

My wife and I pop in for a traditional tea and cake, what we experienced was sour faced staff who would not be out of place in a TV soap. They looked like they did not want to serve us and looked totally uninterested. We will not be returning.

Tea is tea! But it is served in nice china cups and the cake selection is lush! I had a panini and it was lovely.

I visited the tearoom with my daughter. We received nice but slow service. My daughter loved her coffee cake and the decaf coffee was good, but a little small in portion, but very nicely presented. It was a little out of keeping with the style and feel of the cafe that on the table, under the glass covering were adverts... More

I have been visiting the cafe for many years and have never been disappointed. The atmosphere/food and staff are amazing. I ordered a sandwich and latte, the coffee here is excellent and the sandwich very tasty and presented really well. I tried not to order a piece of cake, but failed miserably. The cakes are to die for and impossible... More
