My daughter and I happened upon Mr H's on a cold damp afternoon.
We only intended to have a quick cuppa, but ended up spending over an hour at this delightful place.

The cakes are out of this world, the atmosphere is so cosy, and the service - wow!!

Gary, who served us was so accommodating, nothing was too much trouble. I am disabled and use sticks, and he went to great lengths to ensure I was adequately seated and comfortable.

So many places are impersonal these days. It was a wonderful and refreshing change to receive such welcoming and efficient service.

Wonderful cake and tea, in wonderful surroundings, with a wonderful host! We cant wait to go back! Well done Mr H's on a brilliant teashop!!

I went into Mr. H's Tea Shop in Bucklersbury this afternoon at around 2 PM to perform some impromptu clarinet music for customers for approximately half an hour. It was very well received.

Eight of us plus a baby visited after being to an internment of ashes in the local cemetery. We descended upon Mr H and probably caused chaos whilst trying to decide what to eat & drink. We were able to relax & enjoy our choices of coffee & tea plus various cakes. Service was quick and we were served with a smile. Such a lovely place to visit and we will definitely come back again & again!!!

My sister and I
were delighted to find this haven in a town full of trendy coffee establishments. A great meeting place to catch up with coffee on a busy day. Always a very warm welcome and friendly atmosphere to enjoy homemade cakes, soup or try a selection of teas. Grab a sofa and choose a magazine from the rack for a real home from home experience.

I just had to write a review about this lovely tea shop , atmosphere is very relaxed and friendly and a wonderful range of loose leaf specialist teas are available . I must strongly recommend the newly introduced afternoon teas , these are wonderful and perfect for a treat to yourself and friends or as a special occasion . I am local and will make this a regular occasion .
