Very impressed with the service when booking and was not disappointed with this during the whole experience. The food, service and ambiance was first class. Attention to detail and variety second to none. I have found in Glasgow that afternoon tea has been a disappointment and was very surprised and glad to see that the Cup Tea Lounge has rectified...

My cousin and I visited today for afternoon tea to celebrate our 40th birthdays. From the moment we walked through the door the staff were so attentive. We had arrived early but it was not a problem. Our waitress went through the menu & tea options with us. She was really lovely. The afternoon tea itself was amazing &,like other... More

We had a delicious visit to Cup today with my mum and sisters. What a lovely spread of food with plenty of cake leftover to take home for later. Waiting on staff were very attentive. Thank you.

I thought I'd treat my parents to an afternoon tea whilst they were visiting Glasgow and decided upon Cup. I've never been for an afternoon tea before and I think the bar is now set very high! We sat down and were introduced to the concept of Cup's afternoon tea and what we would get, then ordered some tea. There... More

I went with my sister for high tea. She had a voucher for champagne high tea for two. The staff were very pleasant and the teas i tried were delicious. The high tea itself was mediocre. There was a very long gap between the savoury and the sweet courses. It was beautifully presented but it wasn't very exciting. The options... More

Hello, We are very happy that you enjoyed the staff's service and our hand-blended tea selection. The gap between savoury and sweet is unacceptable and we will look at why this happened on the day and make sure this is no longer than 10 minutes. In regards to the offering with the afternoon tea I am sorry to hear that... More

We had a lovely afternoon tea at cup for my daughter's birthday. We ordered the afternoon tea with cocktails. It is well worth the money too much food had to take some cakes home in a box! Best afternoon tea we have had!

I have visited Cup several times and never been disappointed. The afternoon tea is delicious and something a little different from the usual format. You get an extensive selection of sandwiches, pastries and other savoury option and a wide variety of sweet treats. The service is also really great and if you book a little later in the day (4pm)...

Best afternoon tea ever. The savour and sweet selections were amazing. My sister is gluten free and the selection she received was just as amazing as ours. Best gluten free range iv ever seen.
