We attended a wedding. Everything was perfect. Every detail was taken care of. The place looked amazing. Fairy lights in all the trees. Beautiful crockery. The food was delicious. Outdoor lawn games. Indoor & outdoor seating.

The outstanding service started when I called to make the original booking. Sonia, who answered the phone made me feel like nothing was too much trouble and her sole purpose was to take my booking and all the details. As often happens when booking for a medium size group, we had changes. Some couldn't make it on our chosen day... More

Devonshire Tea was delicious. Scones were light and fluffy served on fine china. Beautiful setting with lush gardens and settings for weddings and functions. Also serve a beautiful high tea which I will return for soon.

Went up with the in laws yesterday Sunday 10th July. The scones and tea were great and they really enjoyed them. though the scones have become a lot smaller than they normally have. The beef burger went down well from my 14 year old that he wanted another one. Your prices are still good and we will come back just... More

In winter there's nothing more comforting than tea and scones. This café is perfectly positioned to have a pre or post walk treat. The selection of teas was broad with something for everyone and the scones light and fluffy. It's not the cheapest place for tea and scones in the Tambourine mountains but the ambience is nice and the gardens... More

An interesting food experience. This is not my usual choice of dining but enjoyed it all the same. The little morsels stacked on three tiers looked like a snack at best but I was surprised how filling it turned out. Good selection of teas. Nice place oozing guaintness and the staff were great. Perfect for special occasions or celebrations unless... More

I took my daughter, granddaughters and niece who is a prize winning cook to Tea and Niceties for high tea. They were all very impressed. It is in my opinion the best high tea I have been to. Beautiful food all cooked on the premises, matching china, silver teapots etc and real linen. A real treat. The gardens are lovely... More

What a lovely place for a cuppa. Such lovely surroundings & grounds. Weddings & functions appear to be held in the beautiful gardens. High teas seem to be the order of the day. If you have a special occasion then I would highly recommend going here. The owner was very friendly. Thankyou.

Simply the best tea and scones I have ever had. The gardens were great, and the coffee good - but the scones, heaps of jam and lashings of REAL clotted cream!!

Perfect place for weddings. A little girl's birthday party had been set up with an Alice in Wonderland theme. It was exquisite. Food looked wonderful. A beautifully maintained venue.
