True to all the great reviews- quaint, quirky with good quality food. Both downstairs and upstairs were clean and tidy which is sometimes hard to achieve with 'memorabilia' around. Delicious sandwich fillings, amazing cakes (superior bakewell tart!!) All very generous. A nice treat for a Saturday afternoon. It is a personal preference- but I do like paper towels to dry...

Thank you for your kind comments. We are well known for our cakes! Regarding paper towels, we have tried them but our old plumbing can't cope with them being disposed of in the toilet! The local plumber however was delighted! More

We visited the tearooms last Thursday for my parents diamond wedding anniversary. We had a lovely time and my parents enjoyed themselves, Although I was told on the phone we could choose our sandwiches for afternoon tea, this did not happen, but a nice selection was given to us on arrival, followed by lovely scones, This was followed by a...

We bought Afternoon Tea vouchers for my parents and my husband had also bought a voucher for me. We had the most amazing food which was served promptly which was impressive as it was a very busy Saturday afternoon. We had had to cancel previously due to illness which wasn't a problem. We all thoroughly enjoyed the food and the... More

Really quaint, China cups, beautiful knitted tea cozys, and loads of items from the past you can read or look at....and the food was 1st class..If you go on a busy day it might be better to book.

A fantastic visit to Sophie T's with a warm welcome and delicious homemade food. The Teashop itself is beautifully decorated with genuine vintage items and hand knitted tea cosies which are available to purchase. No where else even comes close and I can't recommend it enough!

off the beaten track, but easy to find. very themed for a traditional 40's tea shop, complete with props and music. decent tea list, and pleasant menu. but was hoping/expecting more. not busy but not a great welcome, and made to feel like we were imposing. and very much a 2nd class service compared to their friends

My partner works in a care home where they had a need for a small function and Sophie T's was recommended to supply the food. I've been asked to say that the they considered the food "fantastic and they were very impressed" (her words). They will definitely be using them again.

Me and the kids took my Mum there today as it was my Mum and Dad's wedding anniversary but unfortunately my Dad is no longer with us. Wanted to do something different with Mum to make her smile. I phoned on the Monday to book a table the following day and had no problem. We arrived 10 minutes early but... More
