Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a great, cosy traditional little tea room. This time we only had coffee/tea but have had their delicious cakes on previous occasions. They were very busy with afternoon teas which looked lovely. Staff are lovely too.

Tea was surved in quaint tea pots and china cup and saucer. Very civilised, the range of cakes was very good, with vegan for those that need special dietry needs. I had a lemon bakwell tart and it was so delicious I would have tried...to eat another one. the service was excellent, perfect place to take a mum or special aunt or treat yourself.

We took Mum to WeRCakes for an early Mothers Day afternoon tea celebration and we were so happy we gave it a try. A real family run business that does everything to make you feel welcome. The selection was the best we’ve had locally and...the sheer quantity was both impressive and delicious!! The staff were smiling and helpful offering lots of different teas included in the exceedingly reasonable £20 a head price. We will definitely be back. Thanks guys!More

Celebrated an 80th birthday here today with all the family, age ranging from 1 years old to 80 and it was enjoyed by all. The owner was so accommodating with different requests and it was a pleasure from start to finish. We privately hired the...tea room for 22 of us and we had a fabulous time.

Second visit and very worthy of a complimentary review. This tucked away hidden gem offers a positive step back in time, lovely welcoming staff with warm smiles and excellent customer service. The general vintage ethos felt naturally authentic. We found comfortable seats to enjoy our...time there. Unusual to find such a choice of decaffeinated coffee with Latte, Cappucino and Caffetiere options. The selection of enticing cakes made choice difficult but the Coffee and Walnut Cake was perfection, equalled only by cake previously sold on Waitrose Patisserie Counters. I intend ordering two whole large portioned cakes for Christmas, if possible. The wedge portion sizes were very generous and overall prices were surprisingly competitive. Real quality without extortionate cost associated with larger outlets. I bought other cake portions to take home and my husband and son were very impressed. They both asked when I could buy more! We arrived at 12pm and it was near to full capacity quickly. We noticed others having pre ordered afternoon tea with cakes and sandwiches. Well presented on traditional three tier china cake stands and looked great. We will order next time. We also used lovely traditional china cups with saucers as standard.More

Hi, we serve homemade soup and a cheese scone as a savoury option, otherwise it's all about the cake :) There's no need to book for soup/cake. Afternoon tea requires 48 hours notice :) x
