The cute extra details to the table setting, lovely interior to the shop and really friendly staff made this a special experience. The value was good although we would have liked complimentary coffee/tea refills.

We had afternoon tea for my sisters baby shower and we got given a private room which was lovely. They have amazing vegan options and veggie options and of course meat. It was displayed so lovely and they even let us decorate.

We had a fabulous experience at the Paddington Breakfast. The food was great and the whole event was brilliant value for money but what really made the day for my daughter was the staff, they were all so friendly and each one made every single...child there feel so special. This really was a lovely time where we felt so welcomed and not at all rushed. I would thoroughly recommend this tea room and we will definitely be back for any future themed events and I’ll be looking for any excuse to bring friends and family. My daughter has already requested that her next birthday happens here!More

If I owned a tea house i imagine it would look like Dotty’s. 💜 It’s just absolutely stunning! Treated my kids to the Paddington breakfast and pre booked. Upon arrival I was told that I had booked normal seats. (Completely my error) The owner &...staff went above & beyond to accommodate us. I honestly cannot thank you enough for doing this. I thoroughly enjoyed my breakfast as I opted for something off the main menu & it really didn’t disappoint. My twins & 11 year old loved the Paddington breakfast. Thank you Dotty’s for a truly amazing experience we cannot wait to return XMore

I took my niece to celebrate the end of year at secondary school, and she loved everything. The Caribe Sundae tea was to die for. We are definitely going back again.

Food was lovely and service was excellent however, £52 for 2 bottles of Aldi or Tesco Prosecco was a bit too much. ( Canti). I know I should have asked how much prior to ordering but I just didn't think about it. Will I return,...maybe not!More

Lovely setting , very clean and tidy Nice food with a good selection although I do feel that it was overpriced for what it was and the location. Service was attentive bordering on intrusive - we were asked 6-7 times in about 90 mins if..."everything was OK" which wasn't necessary .More

Lovely Jubilee Afternoon Tea. Very expensive for what it is though - one tea stand for two people works out to £70. But it’s the popularity you pay for. Two of us had pre-booked the afternoon tea and two of us wanted to pick lunch...from the menu with a cake afterwards. Unfortunately as soon as we sat down the afternoon tea was brought over for two and the other two is us had to wait 45 minutes for two sandwiches which was really annoying as we watched them eat the whole tea and were hungry - plus 45 minutes for two sandwiches isn’t good. They seemed to be prioritising a large party upstairs with lots of afternoon teas. Food was lovely though can’t complain. I just wish they would’ve waited and brought all of our food out together. I don’t think it’s worth £70 for two people but it was a nice treat.More

I have visited this place for afternoon tea on several occasions. The staff are lovely and friendly and make your visit special. The food is superb. I took my friend for birthday brunch. This was a first for both of us and the visit being...my friends first also. She was just as impressed as I am every visit. Brunch was amazing, we had plenty of time to catch up between each tier. The decor is also fantastic, I would recommend this lovely place to everyone.More

My mum took both my young girls here for a treat and paid £60 for the privilege. 2 days later after stale cakes and sandwiches I'm nursing a sick mum and a very sick daughter who are both constantly vomiting. How bad must an establishment...be to charge London prices in Wallington and make the consumer seriously ill? Stay away from this sham outfit.More

The afternoon tea was so lovely. From the sandwiches, the funfetti scones! and delicious chocolate treats, we thoroughly enjoyed every moment. This was one of the best afternoon teas we've had and are looking forward to booking our next visit. The staff were absolutely lovely...(sorry we didnt catch any names but our visit was on Sunday 1st May). They were very acccomodating and made the experience even more enjoyable. Thank youMore

I think they would but ring and check and if they know I am sure they will help with that. They are very accommodating to dietary needs.
