What a lovely venue for an 80th birthday tea party. Our group of cheeky chatty seniors thoroughly enjoyed the fabulous old fashioned tea at The White Rabbit. Served on beautiful china, the tasty sandwiches, Scones with clotted cream and jam, and the most amazing selection of home made cakes went down a treat. Nothing was too much trouble to make... More

White Rabbit is the sort of place you want to go to. It's traditional, it's simple and it certainly offers some good cake selection. However, the concept is not fully pulled off. It is a tired and dull experience. The quality of cakes almost brings it out of the depths, but not quite. It aims to be a place that... More

Visited at the weekend with my wife and adult daughter. Enjoyed the cakes and tea/coffee immensely, there was an excellent choice of home baked cakes on offer, all looked delicious. Lovely decor and friendly service. Would highly recommend.

A friend took me to the White Rabbit on a visit to Nottingham for morning tea. We both ordered coffee and scones with jam and clotted cream. The coffee was good, the scones fresh and fruity and made better by the jam and cream. A cosy tea house with lovely decor. I would definitely return here when next in Nottingham.

Having waited 15 minutes to be served in a nearby tea room, this was like chalk and cheese! Prompt friendly service, lovely food, quaint ambience. No wonder my wife likes going there! Highly recommended.

We visited this tea room for an afternoon tea and it was lovely. The sandwiches were really fresh and lovely and the tea is served in lovely old China teapots and tea cups. Would definitely recommend this cafe to others! It was excellent value and lovely for a quiet afternoon tea!!

Lovely little tea room. Loved the China cups and saucers and not forgetting the quaint little spoons. Didn't have anything to eat but food and cakes looked lovely. Will definitely be returning to sample the cake 😆

Popped in before we hit the shops, great location. It's a very quaint little shop with lots of attention to detail - beautiful vintage crockery (which you can also buy), and vintage decor. Loved the little rabbit door knocker. Not very big so we were glad to get a table. We had a delicious lunch, just what we wanted, a... More
