I have never found that I have needed to write a bad review before but I feel I have to let you know as I feel so annoyed .I purchased the voucher through Groupon who have always been good and reliable hoping to take friends for afternoon tea as a treat When it came to booking I tried constantly via phone no answer,went through groupon site it constantly said there was no availability I even tried to send them a email through their site they did not even reply.I am so annoyed and disappointed and feel very let down by this restaurant .

Have been trying to book through Groupon for 4 weeks. Every date given as available turns out to be fully booked when selected. With 2 weeks to go before expiry date, there are no dates or times avalable to redeem the Groupon voucher. Cake Fairy has failed to answer the phone on 11 occasions. I would have loved to have given as a glowing review as the satisfied customers, but with no opportunity do so.

bought as a groupon otherwise we would never had known it was there
but easy to find and park when we did
a very twee delightful little tea room run by two happy bouncy proprietors
an unusual mix of beef in yorkshire pudding, cheese and caramelized onion toast and cucumber sandwiches followed by scones and eclairs washed down with a ginormouse pot of tea
not over filling but what a genteel tea should be
well done lads

Hidden beneath the city walls, where the river meets the canal, in the friendly Garden Quarter neighbourhood, this cafe is a true gem. Very friendly guys who run it, and who tailor your breakfast or lunch requests to your choice and appetite.

Top tips: breakfast with pancakes with a flavoured latte is the perfect start to the day. It's a total sun trap with lovely views of the ancient Water Tower and city walls - provided you get there before the sun disappears after lunch. Then it becomes a cool oasis on a hot day.

There always seems to be interesting and creative people there - often meeting and hatching plans. Free parking is a bonus for visitors from beyond the neighbourhood.
