My hubby and i visited Bath for an overnight stay to see opening night of an Agatha Christie play. In keeping with the style of our visit we wanted to have traditional tea and scones so I did a bit of research to find the perfect place. I'm a bit of a vintage 1930/40's fan so when I stumbled across this place online I got a little excited! We intended to go for afternoon tea before the play but when we arrived at 5:15pm they had unfortunately closed early (normal closing time is 6pm mid week) Disappointing as this was we decided to go the next morning before heading home and It was worth the wait!
From the moment you walk in it feels like you've gone back in time. The music, the decor, the china, the waitress were all plucked straight from past! Everything was beautifully presented and the service was excellent. We had cream tea and the strawberry jam was delicious! Also the best tea I've had in a long time. It was a nice touch that they put a little egg timer on the table so you know when the tea has finished brewing. We each had a small pot for our tea which gave out 3 cups each and the waitress even came up and offered to refill the pots with hot water so we stayed and had a couple more cups!
Reasonably priced at £13.90 for two cream teas. Definitely worth a visit! We wish we lived closer so we could stop by more often!
