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

Came into the teahouse around 4.40pm with my mum. I was really looking forward to having an afternoon tea as it was my birthday and would have been a nice place to celebrate it. Girl who served us explained that they wouldn't have time to prepare us afternoon tea and as there was a lot of food on the tiers... More

Dear Helen, Thank you for your review. However, I would like to take this opportunity to explain why you were unable to have an Afternoon Tea at The White Rabbit Teahouse. As I understand correctly, you arrived at the teahouse at around 4:40pm and asked to order an Afternoon Tea. Our cook leaves at 4:30pm, meaning that from this point... More

It is a pretty cafe with cute rabbit condiment set's on the table's. The cake I had was very tasty,raspberry and lemon flavour. It is in a little hidden alleyway that I'd never even seen before. Only downside was it was a bit on the small side and there are no Windows in the cafe!

I've come here a few times now for afternoon tea and just a sandwich at lunch time and have never been disappointed. The owner seems lovely and the staff are all friendly, and the food offered is fresh and made to order.

It was a lovely tea room. full of rustic charm. quirky furniture, bunting. lovely china and it has to be said lovely tea. However the whole experience for me and my friend was spoilt by the pushy manager. Firstly taking our order she asked if we were sure we didn't want anything to eat. No thank you was our reply....

Went to this original tea shop for lunch with a friend. Very warm welcome and several tables free. All crockery is china and food and drinks were very good. Staff very attentive but too much so for us and we got the impression they wanted us in and out as fast as possible. This may have been due to a... More
