Gorgeous afternoon tea for 30 ladies to celebrate my 60th. Everything was fresh and the scones were particularly amazing. Well organised and lovely staff catered to all our dietary requirements . It was lovely to be able to take our own prosecco for a small...corkage charge Charming setting too- definitely recommend a visitMore

Thanks to Tripadvisor reviewers I found this perfect place to take my boyfriend back to his old hometown for a stop and meet family on our travels for a birthday weekend away. He does love a good cream tea and Poppins was extremely good! Nice...decor, friendly service and all of us had assorted different sandwiches and scones. Delicious, fresh and very good value. Thanks for an excellent start to his birthday weekend.More

Called in after a little look round Horwich. Old fashioned tearoom but in a good way. Very pleasant staff and an even pleasanter fruit scone with jam and best butter. Very good cappuccino added to very delightful snack.

Had a fantastic time at Poppins. Party of 4 we chose two indulgent afternoon teas (1 savoury and 1 traditional) plus two Mrs Banks’s afternoon teas. The decor ~ oh it’s wonderful. Niche. Lots of Mary Poppins references but our favourite thing was the mosh...mashed chairs and crockery. Really unique. The food ~ nothing was disappointing. Personal highlights were the quiche, the cheese, the scone and the wonderful Assam tea. The staff ~ very attentive and just really down to earth. We ended up chatting at our table long after their other customer’s left and there was no rushing us up. It’s not super cheap but imho, it’s good value. Just a fantastic place.More

We passed this place on the main road a couple of months ago and had to turn around to try it! What a delightful little place, beautifully decorated and had a cute outdoor seating area too - we had soup and a sandwich which were...both lovely followed by delicious home made cake! Lots of afternoon tea options too which it was nice to see you didn't have to book days in advance like most places. Very reasonably priced too. Staff were very friendly and welcoming and nothing seemed too much to ask. We'll definitely be back!More

Visited a couple of weeks ago for afternoon tea with my son, my auntie and my cousin. It was the first time we'd seen each other in over a year. We were booked in for 2.30pm and had a table for 4 that was in...a quiet area. The staff were very friendly, and couldn't do enough for us the whole time wew were there. We ordered the Indulgence Afternoon Tea for 4...we all chose different teas, but everything arrived together and it was absolutely delicious! We all had an additional pot of tea, and we ended up taking some cakes home. Lorraine, Andrew, Andrea and Barbara would like to thank the staff that looked after us on that rainy Saturday afternoon. They helped make an emotional family reunion very special. We can't wait to go back again!!More

Booked afternoon tea for 7 people for a little “baby shower” treat. The staff are so friendly and lovely, really helpful and nothing too much trouble. The menu choice is excellent, so good that we didn’t know which afternoon tea to choose. It was very...busy, but that didn’t affect the speed or quality of service and when the food arrived it was beautifully presented and everything tasted so good. This is an absolute gem of a place, we all said we will definitely be back, and soon! Thank you Poppins for making the afternoon celebrations just perfect.More
