I can't say sorry enough. You're clearly upset and disappointed, and I do understand completely. Although we aimed to reopen by Mother's Day, we knew it would be a push. That's why we did make that clear by alerting future guests in January by email...More

Tea Parlour is a quirky 1930s inspired English tearoom serving top notch Afternoon Teas on the Beatles mecca that is Mathew Street. Surprisingly sunlit on the first floor, it is a delightful spot for some delicious, homemade cake - all baked from scratch, daily. A new light lunch and breakfast menu has been added, but reservations are only taken for afternoon tea. Although tea is the real star here, (there are over 20 different varieties of rare and single estate teas on offer) a good espresso machine and locally roasted coffee will keep the coffee lovers happy too. Saturdays do book well in advance, but if you want to chance it, at least try to call ahead. We’ll do our best. Guests are welcome to bring their own bottle of fizz. Corkage is just £3 for a 75 cl bottle between two guests. Making it a good choice for milestone birthdays and hen-do celebrations. Only steps away from Liverpool One, and just minutes from Albert Dock, Tea Parlour is a delight to enjoy for all ages.
