Four of us visited the Old School Tearoom and found the two waitresses friendly and
helpful. The food was very good and we had an enjoyable visit

“Truly a place to avoid if you ask me.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2012

After visiting Clumber Park,a very nice place to spend an hour or two,s leisure,we decided to call into this place on our way home,we were not at all impressed with the poor customer service,sour faced staff,and very poor,overpriced fare we recieved there."Apple crumble",nothing whatsoever crumbly to be found here,without doubt the worst we have ever tasted.But worst of all the somewhat abrasive service from staff who really could use some lessons in politeness and customer service.All in all,£11.00 could have been so much better spent.We shall not again be visiting this place in any hurry.

Dear JohnB1973

I was just looking through our tripadvisor reviews and noticed yours.
Just to introduce myself I am the new owner of the tearoom as from January 2013
we have made some extensive changes to the decor, toilets, staff training, fitted a new
traditional coffee machine, our baristas are illy trained and we serve illy coffee..
I invite you to return to our tearoom and give us a try, I am sure you will not be dissapointed
Kind regards
Paul

“Great Food, Great Value. All that was missing was the smile!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2012

Stopped off here for Tea and Cakes etc with my family. The food was really good as we the location etc. The only thing that let the place down was the lady who served us .... She could not even offer a smile or any kind of friendlyness. All the rest of the staff were very nice and friendly. It's a must stop if you are in the Clumber Park area.

“Didn't feel welcome”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2011

As soon as we entered the building we were told to wait until a table was available. The staff looked morbid and we certainly didnt feel welcome. Food was okay and the selection was average.
