OK so that's a lie. There may be calories involved. But the afternoon tea was UTTERLY divine and worth every teensy tiny calorie that sacrificed itself . Fabulous selection of teas (I went with lavender Earl Grey) and splendid sandwiches and cakes. Service was perfect...More

It may be called Hidden Lane tea rooms but people certainly make the effort to find it and rightly so. Decked out in quaint mis-matched chairs and tables with tea served on vintage looking china, it all adds to a lovely experience, particularly when enjoying...More

Being Canadian, we had expectations but had never really been to a tea room before. It was especially crowded during our visit: two bachelorette parties and a baby shower! Still, the food and service were great. The ambiance and atmosphere were the reasons we went,...More

I only just recently heard of Hidden Lane and Tearoom and thought it would be a must on my hit list as I am sick of visiting establishments that insist on playing "music"! Very disappointed as I thought being a tearoom it would be peaceful....More

We've been trying to visit this gem since it was featured on Allan Cummin's secret Galsgow, anyway we caught Glasgow on a surprisingly sunny early May bank holiday on a walk from the Hotel to Kelvin grove. The staff were pleasant and accomodating, the tearooms...More

This place is rather cute, and the staff is inviting. I was super excited for my first official tea in the UK, and this girly gem didn't let me down. I advise walking around the tearoom afterwards, too. The other shops are very colorful and...More
