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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Perfect afternoon catching up with old friends over afternoon tea, where you are made especially welcome by Elspeth and Jackie and made to feel like friends with them too. Good luck with your travels Elspeth and wishing you every happiness in your new life! Xx

Where to start!… the staff here are amazing! Friendly and welcoming and very knowledgeable about their organic coffee and tea. Took my mum for an early Mother’s Day treat and the staff made it so magical. From the moment we entered we had a warm...welcome and we’re seated in a cosy corner to ourselves. The tea and coffee and sparking drinks set the tone. Then the food is scrumptious. The quiches sandwiches scones and sweet treats are heavenly. This is our new place to come for afternoon tea and will be bringing more people along. Best value for money, with great food and customer services. Thank you ladies for a wonderful Sunday afternoon tea! We cannot wait to come backMore

We visited yesterday and had a memorable afternoon tea - the staff were so welcoming and the food plentiful and tasted fabulous so thank you Elspeth and Jackie. There was so much cake we had to box up the top layer and was still fresh...the following day. We are visiting Bromley again in April and plan to come back.More

Visited today as a local and often come. Not sure what has happened but I had a very unfriendly experience. I had my laptop with me and hadn't realised you were unable to use this between 11-2. I was promptly told, after spending £12 that...I was unable to use due to hogging tables. I apologised and said I didn't realise. I was going to use my own internet, no plug in and spent money. It is a lovely cafe, but think they're in Chelsea rather than Bromley... In the short time I was there (and had planned on being anyways) I noted two tables who had nursed over one entire coffee the whole time... maybe tackle that issue?! The Crown is much more welcome and does awesome coffee! Afraid neither me or my family will be visiting again...More

It might have been the hottest day ever but we were so pleased to have booked Afternoon Tea here. The ladies are lovely and the spread was just perfect. Sandwiches, little savouries, scones (with cream and jam) then little pastries and cake! Free flowing tea...which was so good we both bought some to take home! Lovely not to have to travel to London for a tasty treat!More

The Lavender House is my favourite cafe, I’ve been coming here pretty much since it’s opened! My kids have grown up playing in their garden & eating the kids lunchboxes.... ( they are now teenagers!) I often meet friends for coffee/brunch & have even had...a gorgeous afternoon tea for a friends birthday! The food is fresh,tasty & healthy & the cakes & coffee delicious! Obviously during lockdown I haven’t been able to visit , but I did buy the Valentines Graze box, it was a wonderful box of treats that myself & my husband enjoyed very much- it took us 2 days to finish! I was also treated to a Mother’s Day afternoon tea box which was so full of incredible cakes I felt very spoilt (& full up!) The icing on the cake is that the cafe is dog friendly so it’s a perfect place to visit after a walk. 💜More

Living in Orlando we were looking for a way to bring some cheer to a family member who has been on their own during the lockdown. I reached out to The Lavender House and they went above and beyond to help us make a takeaway...box happen for them. Not to mention they did this on their reopening weekend which we knew would be so busy for them. Not just amazed by the help but amazed by the contents of the takeaway. Our family member just loved it and could say enough about the box. .... Next time we are in Bromley we will be certain to visit in person and get a taste for ourselves. Thank you so much!More
