Yet another fabulous meal at Sophie T's. The food is second to none, delicious large slices of homemade cake and yummy scones with clotted cream and jam. The sandwiches are full size triangles rather than finger sandwiches and generously filled. All the food is top quality and beautifully presented on vintage crockery. Welcoming friendly atmosphere and staff, can't wait for... More

Just enjoyed a lovely afternoon at Sophie T's celebrating my daughters birthday; we had Sophie's Special Tea, it was amazing very generous portions, fresh and tasty. There was a pianist playing in the background which definitely added to the atmosphere to this 1940's vintage tea shop. It is worth booking in advance as it does get busy.

Very large pieces of delicious cake! Will be going back to sample sandwiches etc. The table next to us was having the special afternoon tea and it also looked delicious and ample. Wonderful good fun tea cosies. Worth a visit if you are in the area

Bring a vegan I was quite dubious when my friend booked a baby shower in the function room upstairs at Sophie T's. 'Oh great' thought I 'an afternoon of black coffee while everyone enjoys cream tea but me!' How wrong I was!! The staff were informed in advance if my dietary requirements and went out of their way to make... More

We went on the sput of the moment This is a great little place everything freshly made and baked and a fantastic gluten free menu. Be aware it is cash only but not an issue really. Staff were friendly and helpful so nice it brought back memories of my parents and my childhood.

The food and presentation was great. At the time of booking we were not told about the cash only rule. On paying the bill we wanted to pay by debit card. We were told in not such a friendly manner that a card payments were not accepted. I only had Euros and my guest did not have quite the amount... More

According to TripAdvisor you have visited us twice before and would have paid in cash on those visits.. You also left us two 5 star reviews. It states quite clearly in block capitals (not smallprint) on the menu and on our website that we are cash only. Shouting at my staff "May I suggest you tell everybody when they book... More

If you like the 1940s you will love Sophie Ts. Today was my third visit (unfortunately I only had time for a quick tea and scones) but as with pasts visits it was very enjoyable. As well as the tea and scones being very tasty, served by a very friendly lady, there is a good collection of 1940s memorabilia to... More
