The tearoom is small and very popular, so reservations are recommended. The offerings rival those of the over-priced Empress Hotel, minus the bubbly (but that might be arranged). Full afternoon teas are available, as well as smaller versions for lesser appetites. I always bring out-of-town...More

The food is always fresh and delicious. It's a lovely little gem of a restaurant with a very reasonably priced tea.

This is a great place for afternoon tea or lunch. The scones are excellent...my favourite is the almond apricot. There are many tea varieties to choose from. The tearoom is cosy and a great place to meet friends.

Had a great tea and a lovely time. We ordered the Big Muckle as we had not had lunch and were not able to finish it all. Good food and lovely conversations with the retired teachers who sat next to us. The only drawback is...More
