Visit this tea room regularly whilst doing my weekly shop in Barnsley town centre. Homemade meat & potato pie, homemade steak pie with mushy peas, great homemade cakes, tried them all and never had a bad meal yet. They also do great sandwiches, which I have had in the past. Coffee is a good quality coffee and not bitter or... More

I visited Victorian tea rooms recently with my friend, our little treat! We had hot chocolate and "an enormous, beautiful" homemade cake. It's such a pity it's tucked out of the way, if you don't know it's there you probably wouldn't stumble upon it by chance due to its location. It is such a pleasant and traditional little cafe set...

this was my first visit here, I have shied away from entering because it is quite expensive but today was time for a little treat. It started well with the tea served in china cups and got better when the panini arrived. It was huge with a lovely salad garnish. I was quite full but decided to go the whole... More

visited the tea rooms last Saturday lunchtime. It was a very busy time and some customers who entered had to leave as no tables free. However, the tables are quite closely situated together and would not have catered for more. The amount to customers who visited the tea rooms suggests that this venue has a good reputation. We ordered a... More

This is a local favourite. Lovely setting with quality food and atmosphere. Staff are great and should not be missed. Close to the Bus and Train Station. You will not be disappointed.

The tea room looked so inviting that we couldn't go by without calling in! Decor and atmosphere lovely. Waitresses very smart, professional and friendly! The tea room is spotless. Seating downstairs and upstairs. We had morning coffee - black filter coffee and 2 medium lattes cost around £6.00. We didn't have anything to eat but I am sure the food... More
