Looking forward to this perfect tea room Cafe bar opening, my mother and I have missed it very much. Very quaint, arguably the best tea room in all of Bolton area alongside Earthlings over the hill in Bromley Cross. Everyone talks about this fabulous cafe...and it’s well worth a visit xMore

I genuinely cannot praise this tearoom enough and I cannot wait to revisit. We visited yesterday as a group of 8 and the whole experience was excellent. As soon as we arrived the outside excited me as it is so quaint and completely in keeping...with the theme. And then we stepped through the door into a beautiful room where there was a nod to Mary with bits of memorabilia dotted around. We were then taken to our table in a different room which was just as authentic, and seated at our table. The menu has so much choice and even though I had already decided I was having an afternoon tea before we arrived I still struggled to pick which one as they all sounded so good. All the adults went for the "The Poppins Indulgence Afternoon Tea" and we were not disappointed. The sandwiches were lovely and fresh and the flavours went so well together and the mini savoury was very tasty. The minis, scone and slice of cake were also so fresh and gorgeous and we definitely all left full. The 2 children had "Jane & Michael's Afternoon Tea" both with cheese sandwiches and they loved it. I should also point out 1 of them is extra fussy and usually only likes the cheese at home but she wolfed all these sandwiches down and wanted more. They both had hot chocolates and had seconds of those. I loved the large teapots we got and the loose leaf tea and cups and saucers just added to the whole experience for me, I nearly had sugar just so I could add sugar cubes. The tea was lovely and was drank with a raised pinkie! And as the children's hot chocolates looked so good I got one of those too and it did not disappoint, lovely and chocolatey and topped with cream and marshmallows. The food and drinks were excellent and even if you are not a fan of Mary Poppins you will love this place. I am not sure if you can tell but I loved this tearoom and I highly recommend it!More

Went with my daughter on recommendation from a friend. Had a lovely tea , delicious sandwiches and cakes. The slices of cake had to be taken home, no more room. Will definitely go again. Lovely staff, friendly and caring.

Delicious sandwich lunch in relaxed atmosphere. Cakes too irresistible to say no - all washed down with fragrant loose leaf tea.

Had a lovely visit to Poppins tea room for afternoon tea. We were a little late arriving (but did ring to let them know) but the waitress was lovely & said she had put our time back. Service was really good throughout & food was...delicious. Would definitely recommend and can't wait to go back.More

Visited with a group of friends and we all enjoyed a variety of different choices off the menu between us, from the high tea, soup and sandwich duo, jacket potato & the ploughman’s and we were all very happy as usual. The atmosphere with the...music in the background is just so peaceful & the staff can not do enough for you, always checking for more drinks and nothing is too much trouble. We will continue to return xxMore

Was just passing and hadnt booked, but not a problem. I would book in advance in future as I imagine it gets busy. Lovely little place for tea. We had soup and sandwiches with a pot of tea, which was delicious. Highly recommend.

Had booked for Afternoon Tea using a Groupon voucher unfortunately my partner fell ill a few days before we were due to go, I contacted the tea room to let them know and asked would it be possible for me to pop down on the...day with some Tupperware boxes to collect the food as we live locally. The lady stated there was no need to take boxes they would pack it up for me. I attended about 10minutes before our table was booked to find the food wrapped up and in 2 paper bags. Ate our Afternoon Tea at home, the sandwiches were very fresh and delicious - the cheese and chutney was gorgeous, as was the beef and beetroot. Also got scones with cream and jam and 2 slices of delicious cake. Thank you so much.More
