    High tea deal never disappoints

    Never disappointed with high deal & always leave full. Tea + cake is always the best & have a good selection of cake with some unusual flavours - Guinness, chocolate with a baileys frosting, too boozy for me but my husband loved it & he doesn't usually want a dessert!

    Miscommunication re booking

    The staff were very attentive and for that reason we had a lovely time. However there was a mix up and the booking had not been received from their main office. Yet earlier in the week I received a call to ask if I had any dietary requests and to give my credit card details to confirm booking. Miscommunication issues between main booking centre that manages coffee house did not reflect well on professionalism.

    Pre-Gig High Tea

    I love the Tearooms as it’s a refreshing change from the standard evening restaurant experience. I like the light, ’parlour’-like room and the short menu that assures that everything is freshly cooked. My only reservation is that I’m often too full after the substantial main course to manage any of the wonderful cakes!
