“Georgeous tea rooms, tasty food, warm welcome to all, a must visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2011

Situated in a beautful small court yard, the building is stunning and the owner has gone to great lenghts to impress. We had bacon and scrambled egg on hot buttered muffin (simply delcious!) large pot of tea which was great value for two people. Georgous interior so much to admire everywhere - this is a beautiful tea room and the owner is very welcoming. Will definately go back and recommend to everyone!

“Staff did not show any customer service skills or even care that we walked out”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2011

My husband and I went to these tearooms hoping to have a drink with some local cake. Upon entering the tearooms we saw one of the waiters and asked if we can sit anywhere. He said yes and we asked if we could go upstairs as we had seen a sign outside saying there is a room upstairs and downstairs was pretty full. He seemed relunctant and said i will find out if there is space. He asked a waitress and she said yes there was. He said to us that it was fine. Not once was there any friendliness from him or a smile. The waitress was no different. We went upstairs to a practically empty room and the waiter came up a short while after us rearranging furniture and did not come to take our order. We waited for at least 15 minutes after which we gave up. The place is tiny so not having enough time with three staff serving is not a good enough excuse. We left and on our way out saw both the waiter and waitress one of whom moved out of the way to let us down the stairs and neither said anything and carried on about their business. After this we went to another tearoom called The Bakewell Pudding Parlour (we had initially gone there and thought we would try somewhere a little out of the hustle bustle of the town centre). The staff there were exceptional and very friendly. We also went to a bakery to purchase some gifts for family and the staff there were very friendly. So all in all the staff at the Lavendar tearoom obviously do not know how to treat potential customers.

“A Delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2011

Found this cafe by accident on my birthday. The quirky teapots and crockery, with all items being for sale, make the place unique and interesting. The staff were friendly and the lavender teacakes were lovely. Not cheap but an experience as well as a jolly good cup of tea.

“Trully great tea room worth seeking out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2011

Where to start on the lavender tea room, It fulfills the basics of a good English tea room with good food and a great cup of tea, but after that it excels in many other ways. The style and design of the tea room can truly be called eclectic and the upstairs thrown room must be viewed by all. But what makes the tea room standout is the staff, the waitress was excellent with fast and efficient service but the owner was the real star. He is a true English eccentric from the way he greets and treats you to his choice of music and. This place is not to be missed and the more tea rooms that follow his lead to be different the better, he gives his customers that most chain coffee shops lack,individuality.
