Visited with my mum, sister and daughters, we all had the full afternoon tea. HUGE portions of cake, we all had to have a take out bag! Friendly service and not at all rushed, a really enjoyable afternoon.

My daughter took me here for a birthday treat. We chose the Earl Grey and Chai teas which were both good. We had chicken salad and egg sandwiches, the egg were excellent. The scones are probably the best we have had, cheese and spiced fruit, delicious! We both had tray bakes, millionaires shortbread and bakewell tart. Some of the cakes... More

My daughter took me to Biddy's team room, my first ever visit. We chose half-afternoon tea, and what a treat! The Black Vanilla Tea is delicious and goes down well with the lovely Goats Cheese, honey and almond with fig relish finger sandwiches. The cakes are scrumptious it was difficult to make our choices all looked so good. Lovely way... More

Although we were not able to have the full afternoon tea, served upstairs (you really want to book in advance), we were able to nab a table downstairs, where we enjoyed a cream tea, savory tea and a most moorish millionaires shortbread. We sat in comfortable armchairs and balanced our plates on an old travel trunk - the atmosphere was... More

Had lunch here last week with my two sisters whilst on a visit from Hampshire. Lovely selection of fruit teas and an even lovelier selection of cakes.

Perfect spot for a cup of tea (of which they have many many different kinds). Also had the millionaire shortbread which was huge and incredible. Lovely staff, lovely aesthetic. Would highly recommend.
