I visited this tea room after being recommended by a friend and I wasn't disappointed. Lovely friendly welcome to the quirky little coffee shop and the food was freshly made/prepared to the highest of standards. The service was excellent ... couldn't do enough for you! Thoroughly recommend the place for afternoon tea or just something off the regular menu xxx... More

I absolutely love Sugar Plum! I come all the way from Manchester just for an afternoon tea. The coffee is delicious and the food is really good! It's definitely worth a stop if you are passing nearby. I visited this place twice and I highly recommend if you are planing a visit!

Visited today for the first time with my mum and brother as a late Mother's Day surprise, we ordered afternoon tea one being gluten free. Well having struggle to find places that offer gluten free I was delighted that they did. Both non gluten and gluten were lovely, very tasty selection of sandwiches/scones and cakes. Very attractive to look at... More

Having been given as a present, an "Afternoon Tea For Two" voucher for The Sugar Plum Tearoom we used it on a nice, sunny March afternoon. Our Son, Daughter-in-Law and Grandson also came along. We had a really nice time and were made to feel most welcome by the attentive staff. The "Afternoon Tea" was lovely and we also ordered... More

Whenever I come in here, its always busy with a really nice relaxing atmosphere. Popped in for brunch and again was not disappointed. I had welsh rarebit, and asked for the creamed garlic mushrooms for a small extra cost. The only way to describe it is delicious!!! My friend had the goats cheese salad which she also enjoyed.

Yummy food, excellent service, spotlessly clean and beautiful surroundings. Highly recommended. Its like stepping back in time with memories of the good old days. China cups and saucers, side plates with tiny cake forks.

We wanted to show the Sugar Plum Tea Rooms off to a visiting friend from the south and he wasn't disappointed. We had a lovely breakfast - the doorstop slices of granary bread with 2 free range eggs on for 2 vegetarians was really filling and the egg yolks were so creamy. I love all the vintage items on display... More

Took the mother in law for afternoon tea and it was fab. Lots to eat and even took a few home, definitely one of the best around. Only thing I'd day could be improved was the tea pots! They have lovely crockery but standard metal tea pots, little thing overall.
