Want to try this tearoom for awhile and it is not disappointed! It is a lovely traditional english tearoom, with pretty teapots and teacups decoration on the wall. Not only the decoration is lovely, its food is good as well. We've tried homemade scone and prawn sandwiches, both are very tasty. Staff are very friendly although they are very busy.

Wasn't sure it looked enough when first served but couldn't actually eat all the cake, had plenty of tea and the service was fantastic and very friendly, actually recognised the lady serving from...

On Saturday 19th July we took our Uncle Bill to the Chocolate Teapot to celebrate his 90th birthday. We decided to have the Chocolate Teapot afternoon tea. There was a very good choice of sandwiches, homemade cakes and yummy scones with jam & cream and a huge pot of tea. The tea room is beautifully decorated and has a lovely... More

I arrived at Esher station on a Sunday with a half-hour wait and man in the ticket office recommended it for a cup of tea. I was one of the first customers of the day and the staff were lovely and quick. My sister bought a piece of cake to take away and after our visit to Sandown Park we... More

I read the reviews here and decided to give it a try. We enjoyed our visit but wouldn't go crazy about it. Inside is simple and nicely decorated, lovely garden but it's under the railway, garden chairs are not very comfortable though. I had the Full English, fiancé had the chicken sandwich. Food was simple and ok, the friendly service... More

Tea here is lovely. The cakes are yummy and the little scones which go with the cream tea are truly light. It is Eshers hidden secret. Go and try it. I'm sure it will become a favourite.

I was so lucky to find this little place when I had half an hour to spare. I was looking for a place to have a peaceful bite to eat and read my book when I came across this lovely place. The food was very simple but delicious with a great choice of sandwiches, light lunches and cakes. I had... More
