Called in today and had an afternoon tea which was lovely. £10.95 gets you either a pot of tea or a coffee, a choice of sandwich (4 triangles), a scone with lots of jam and cream plus 2 other cakes. I was too full to eat everything but this wasn't a problem as the friendly staff boxed up what was... More

Had a lovely, homemade afternoon tea here. Deep filled, freshly cut sandwiches, lovely cake selection, and we took home what we couldn't eat! Good value for money and great service. Will certainly go again.

Visited the tearooms for the first time yesterday. The atmosphere is warm and inviting and the tearoom was very busy. I had a jacket potato with prawns which was delicious and my partner had a hot beef baguette. He tells me he was a little disappointed with the baguette as it was not crispy and didn't come with onion gravy... More

Visit this tea room regularly whilst doing my weekly shop in Barnsley town centre. Homemade meat & potato pie, homemade steak pie with mushy peas, great homemade cakes, tried them all and never had a bad meal yet. They also do great sandwiches, which I have had in the past. Coffee is a good quality coffee and not bitter or... More

I visited Victorian tea rooms recently with my friend, our little treat! We had hot chocolate and "an enormous, beautiful" homemade cake. It's such a pity it's tucked out of the way, if you don't know it's there you probably wouldn't stumble upon it by chance due to its location. It is such a pleasant and traditional little cafe set...

this was my first visit here, I have shied away from entering because it is quite expensive but today was time for a little treat. It started well with the tea served in china cups and got better when the panini arrived. It was huge with a lovely salad garnish. I was quite full but decided to go the whole... More

visited the tea rooms last Saturday lunchtime. It was a very busy time and some customers who entered had to leave as no tables free. However, the tables are quite closely situated together and would not have catered for more. The amount to customers who visited the tea rooms suggests that this venue has a good reputation. We ordered a... More
