We visited this tea room with friends who live in Scarborough so they knew the whereabouts of the tearoom.
The interior setting is old fashioned and fabulous. All separate booths for groups, fabulous stained glass window at the back,crockery is lovely, all old fashioned. It's not just a tea room it's more of an experience.
The food is innovative,lovely ,home made ,tasty and beautifully presented. Lots of different teas to choose from ,unlimited coffee refills.
We ordered our tarts ,bread etc from the specials board and we were given extra dishes fee of charge. As it was near closing time when we left we were offered complimentary scones.
The people who own it are a delight,really professional and friendly and their customer service is excellent. I really hope they do well,they deserve to.
The place is hidden away but is only actually a short walk. If you look directly down South Street you probably wont see it unless you actually walk down the street as there is nothing outside to draw your attention. It doesn't look as if there is anything down that street.(Perhaps needs a sandwich board type advertisement on the pavement outside the tea room or some tables and chairs on the pavement to draw attention to the fact it is there.) Hunt it down ,it's well worth it. It is excellent value for money too.
