I went with a friend on a Sunday. We weren't able to book (their policy). Although it was busy I was put on a waiting list and sat in the waiting area. The deco was fabulous. Really quirky and lived up to other reviews about the deco. I saw many hen parties and baby showers. We ordered an afternoon tea... More

Exemplary service! Waiting staff were very attentive, helpful and polite. Couldn't have asked for better service, it was top rate. Food was sublime. Visited once just for tea and a second time for full meal. Tea was delightful. Compliments to the chef for the meal, a delicious warm salad. Love, love, loved the quirky Hatter's Tea Party feel/theme to the... More

I went for afternoon tea in a large group at the weekend for a hen party. The organiser had lots of problems with inefficient staff and poor communication and them trying to increase the price after we had booked. The sandwiches were very stale, dry and hard at the edges (they had obviously been sitting around for a long time)... More

Gorgeously designed tea rooms serving a selection of light snacks, afternoon teas and delicious cakes! Visited on a busy Sunday (definitely book in advance) and staff were helpful and friendly. Service was quick and everything we ordered was lovely. If you fancy an afternoon tea somewhere a bit different then this is definitely the place to go. Great fun.

Lovely varied menu and reasonably priced. Large selection of leaf teas. Generous portions - the cakes looked amazing but couldn't stretch to sampling them! Great service from pleasant and friendly staff. We had reserved a table which I would recommend as it was fairly busy for a Friday lunchtime. Definitely worth revisiting!

This is a quirky twist on a traditional tea room and definitely should be visited if you get the chance. There's a good range of food and all very reasonably priced. The service was a little bit slow but it was a Saturday lunch time and they were very busy and it didn't really put a downer on the experience... More
