The Parlour Tea rooms is a traditional, sweet friendly cafe with lovely sandwiches and mouthwatering cakes. It's an absolutely favourite with my children. Book if you're going at the weekend. It's almost too popular. And make sure you try the Victoria sponge!

I have been here many times, its a favourite of mine and my daughter. The last visit was lunch on my birthday in August. We nearly always have The Viables Tea, which is a sandwich (a few crisps and salad garnish) and cake of your choice from the many, and all homemade, on the dresser, with a pot of tea... More

Portion size is very good and value for money too. Cake is often large. I always recommend friends and family here now as perfect for bite to eat somewhere quiet instead of a Pub. Booking... More

We visited fairly early in the day and were very surprised to find that nearly all the tables were "reserved" even though it was no where near lunch time. Another couple came in after us and were told they could be squeezed in, err hello we were the only other people in there. I ordered the special of a cheese... More

I had read about the Parlour Tearoom on Tripadvisor and for a while it was the No.1 Restaurant in Basingstoke. I found this very disappointing as it is a Tearoom, not a restaurant. This is a lovely tearoom, but does not challenge some of the superb restaurants we now have in and around Basingstoke. I am so pleased that Tearooms... More

We spent a leisurely 2 hours enjoying our lunch, 5 of us in all, not rushed but allowed to take our time and enjoy the excellent food. Nice choice of toasties, panini, cakes. Good prices too.
