The place is full of quirky historical accessories and decorations. We had a family occasion booked which I would definitely recommend as there is already a theme when you step in! I'm unsure how much it is as I was a guest but they did an afternoon tea with a soup as a starter and a selection of sandwiches and... More

Thank you for taking the time to review Interlude Tea Room. We're so pleased you enjoyed your experience and have recommended us to others. Our Afternoon Cream Tea package, which you enjoyed with your family, is very popular with our customers as the soup, bread and cakes are all hand-made on the premises by our own fair hands. We're sorry... More

A warm welcome awaits you as you arrive, the tables are all set with china cups, saucers and sugar bowls, patterns being mixed and matched. There are interesting ornaments, objects and pieces of clothing around on the window sills, shelves and chair backs. The staff are very friendly and helpful, advising you on the menu. Meals can be shared if... More

Superb tea and coffee in an amazing 1930s atmosphere. From the pictures on the wall to the period clothes for sale and the delicate china cups this extraordinary coffee shop is steeped in authentic details. Exquisite scones. Unique and brilliant.

I stumbled across this cafe as I had a meeting at the Town Hall. It truly is an unusual place taking you back to the 1920s. The detail of the cafe is remarkable and the set out both intriguing and charming. The service is great and if you need the waiter you simply ring a bell. I was in a... More

I visited Interlude Tea Room with my best friend for her birthday and we're both very glad we did! It's a well decorated space, very vintage and cute. The afternoon tea was delicious, they catered well for dietary requirements and the staff were very welcoming. Would definitely recommend!

I've actually been here many times now. It is a lovely vintage-feel restaurant serving a wide choice of freshly prepared foods served on vintage crockery. The cream tea with the homemade scones is not to be missed. Also top notch service makes this a go-to place to visit again and again.

I was waiting for a repair to be finished in Shipley and popped in here for some lunch. The tea room was lovely and cool on a hot summer's day, with period decor and adornments on the tables. The menu came in an old Reader's Digest annual. I ordered the cream tea, which consisted of soup of the day, a... More

Hidden away behind the indoor market, Interlude Tea Room brings an ambience and quality not often found in today's busy times. Great food, all made and baked on the premises (including their bread), wonderful service and a chance to chill out before returning to the 21st century.
