“Best Little Afternoon Tea In Glasgow”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

Took my daughter in law's mum for her birthday, as one of our hobbies is doing Afternoon Teas !!
The spread was to die for and the pastries on the sausage rolls and mince pies were amazing.
I am so glad I have found this little treasure with its great ambience and lovely proprietor.
We will definitely be back as we both can't stop raving about it.

“Fantastic Afternoon Tea”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

Having purchased a voucher for afternoon tea, scones and a glass of bubbly, my friend and I were bowled over by the service, food and atmosphere of this quaint tearoom. On arrival we asked if sandwiches were available and were given a large choice of options. Having made our choices everything was made fresh to order and whilst we were waiting we were served our first pot of tea (there were many). Nothing was too much trouble and the owners so friendly. When the warmed scones arrived (and they were huge) my friend and I could only manage 1 each. There was a choice of three jams, clotted cream and butter. The glass of bubbly to go along with it all just topped it off. All in all a very enjoyable experience and I would certainly return again. Well worth a visit.

“Hidden Treasure .... Fantastic Tearoom”
Reviewed November 16, 2013 via mobile

We discovered this fantastic tearoom by luck from a deals website via my email. We got a great deal & we enjoyed our visit tremendously, even at full price it would be good value for money. We were welcomed by owner Wendy as if we were long relatives. We were lavished with unlimited tea/coffee, delicious sandwiches, scones & cake of which were plentiful. Decor, beautiful crockery & ambiance of the tearoom was vintage 40's/50's with the subtle sounds of Perry Como etc playing in the background. We shall frequent this quaint establishment again. If you are visiting Great Western Auctions (Bargain Hunt/Anita Manning) it is merely a stone's throw away & I highly recommend a visit even if it's only for a coffee. You'll be captivated ;o)

“Scrumptious Scones-great hosts”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

I treated my Mum and two sisters to Glass of Bubbly and Cream Scone afternoon Tea last Sunday as a treat after my Mum's "Big 80th Birthday Party on Saturday! The four of us were welcomed by Wendi and made to feel like long lost friends - we enjoyed the MUSIC as well-I think it was the "Rat Pack" The bubbly was a lovely start and the "Scones" were Huge!! We had a selection of Rasberry,Strawberry,Blackcurrant and Apricot Jams (tasted homemade) two large helpings of Fresh Cornish Cream and 8 huge freshly baked scones and a Huge China Pot of Tea- we absolutely enjoyed everything and especially talking to Wendi and Wullie they are full of information regarding the shop and surrounding area and the history behind the shop and "The War" for the Old Tearoom experience. The service was first class and we all enjoyed ourselves so much we forgot to leave a wel deserved "Tip" Sory Wendi but we will make-up when we come for our next visit- This tea room is samll and cosy and Wendi makes you feel special when you visit- Looking forward to coming back soon.

“THE BEST”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

You will not be able to beat this afternoon tea, don't care where you go. Sandwiches, open and closed, pastries, cakes and Wendi's fab cupcakes, all home made, and plenty of tea or coffee. Setting, music, feels like grandma's precious front room.
