The service is very good, a very large menu, but excellent for tea, sandwiches, cakes. A nice change from self service.

Good food and great service. My grand daughter has to have gluten free food and the Westminister has an excellent gluten free menu. She loved their chocolate cake!

What a wonderful place, either for afternoon tea, or for a meal. Not the cheapest, but the quality and quantity can't be complained about. The service was excellent and the atmosphere takes you back to the times when these establishments pampered their customers. I can't recommend this place highly enough. Well worth a visit

Lovely olde worldly surroundings it really does take you back in time, the WC catered for babies & toddlers, changing mat, toddlers toilet seat, and potty. The breakfast was delicious 😋 best quality ingredients,items had been grilled, an not deep-fried, presented well on the plate. Staff very helpful and all dressed smart to complement the surroundings. A top class place... More

Very old fashioned place with a lovely atmosphere. Just as it must have been years ago. We had tea/coffee and scones and it's nice to have it served on a properly laid out table with quaint teacups. The service is excellent too, my coffee wasn't strong enough (just my taste) and it was immediately re-done for me with no quibble... More

Two different breakfasts both served with too much lettuce and other salads. Service by three different members of staff was slow. Portions were small e.g. not enough butter or marmalade for two slices of toast. The bill was £36 for two.

Excellent old fashioned tea rooms. Great service and atmosphere. They also serve meals but do not take credit card.

My partner and I visited last Sunday. A truly fantastic experienceexperience, food excellent, high standard of cleanliness and staff very polite and professional. We had Sunday lunch but the most popular food appeared to be afternoon teas served on three tier Sunday stands.
