Description: Welcome to Characters Teahouse and Hot Stone Restaurant. A secret to be found. Tucked away in a side street we are not easy to find. But when you do you are in for a big surprise. We are different to say the least..You could say quirky and you would be right. Old second hand china, cups, saucers, plates, glasses, furniture etc all bought from charity shops and completely mismatched giving the place character and ambiance hence the name Characters. Food is wholesome and unpretentious ,soups, sandwiches, hand made cakes & scones of different flavours forming the basis of our now famous Afternoon Tea. Accompanied by proper loose leaf tea & coffee of your choice we are open daytime 11am to 4pm Monday to Saturday. In the evening Friday & Saturday serving from 6.30pm to 8.00pm our also famous "Steak on the Stone" Accompanied by "Bring your Own" wine, beer or champagne. Whenever you decide to visit you will be greeted with a big welcome from the staff & management of this lovely family run restaurant..hopefully see you soon. Characters Team

We visited on a Saturday lunchtime after reading the great reviews on here and weren't disappointed!The staff are so friendly and allowed us to choose to sit downstairs on a cosy sofa.The cakes and sandwiches were delicious and proper tea and mismatched crockery added to the character.The toilet room is even lovely!Will definitely go back.

Seven family members went to Characters on a Friday night for a stone cooking experience. Its a quirky informal place and serves as a shop, tea room, bar and sometimes,restaurant. We were seated in the basement which is like someones living/dining room with books, mirrors,screens and other artifacts. Very cosy.
The steaks arrive on a sizzling flat stone with a dish of accompanying veg and you cut up,turn over and move around the meat to seal and cook as you like it. Mine was very tender and the heat in the stone lasted until the meat had gone. The service was very friendly from young staff who must find it difficult at times to negotiate the stairs whilst carrying volcanic rock!
A great night was had by all.

Every aspect of our experience tonight was excellent. The steak melted in the mouth, the veg was all delicious, the puddings were yummy. But, most of all, the warm welcome and friendly relaxed atmosphere was the cherry on top. Can't wait for next time :-)
