A bit disappointed after seeing the reviews on here. Staff ok, one waitress a bit too keen, I'd walked in, found a table, been the loo and sat down for 30 seconds not even picked up the menu and at this point already been asked twice if I was ready to order. We ordered sandwiches which were good as far as sandwiches go. We didn't feel overly welcomed and this may not be the best place if you have young children. I probably wouldn't go again but perhaps worth a try if you want a light bite.

We were in Bakewell after cycling the Monsal Trail and looking for refreshment. Lavender tea rooms is tucked into a pleasant little courtyard away from the hustle and bustle of this busy village. I didn't pay much attention when we chose it as we were getting tired and thirsty and plumped for the first place we saw with a table outside. I'm glad we did as the staff were charming, the place is quirky and fun and rather camp. Tea and cake were lovely and nice of the staff to explain the whole Bakewell pudding thing so patiently when they must be asked a hundred times a day.

Tea for two in one of the prettiest court yards. The interior of the cafe is as elegant as the exterior. Beautiful decor adorns this lovely building. We decided on the Lavender cup cakes and a pot of tea. This arrived swiftly and with a smile. The beautiful large china tea pot poured the loveliest quality clear tea. In all £7.00 for several cups sipped from china cups, and two large lavender cup cakes. Fabulous value for a lovely relaxing shopping break in charming surroundings.

A hidden gem indeed! Situated off the main street in a beautiful courtyard with other great shops. The food was beautiful and service excellent. Thank you and I'll absolutely be back. Trip advisor was invented s you can find and pass on to other people.
