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.

Afternoon tea, pre booked and advised at time of booking one of us was vegetarian. Shown to table, 25 mins later no sign of food so asked. It appeared, but vegetarian not catered for. They tried again, but still bought out a tuna sandwich among...the vegetarian ones. Had to ask for the cream and jam for scones. The manager did come and apologise and explained they were trying to train new staff. Won't be going back anytime soon.More

I had breakfast here with a friend. The service was good & the staff friendly. We had the full English & a bacon sandwich. Both were delicious, as was the coffee. The cafe itself is beautiful & we also had a view out to the...marina. A lovely way to spend a morning. I've been here several times before & always look forward to my next visit.More

Popped in as passing. Seated straightaway, was fairly busy but served very quickly. Had the bacon and egg muffin and salmon and scrambled egg muffin, were lovely! Cakes taken home for later. Will definitely return for another visit

Can’t believe how much Gracie Ann’s has gone down hill. Use to be one of my fav places to go. Today we went in there and the service was so slow to say the least. Won’t be rushing back and No they were not busy

Lovely tea shop and tasty food but really disappointing service despite friendly staff. We ordered sandwiches and tea and coffee. The drinks were served quickly but we had to wait half an hour for our sandwiches whilst other customers who came in after us were...served their food first.More

What an amazing place. I have had afternoon tea at most of the known hotels in the area and folk out the £70 odd they charge and always leave feeling underwhelmed, either because their food is dull or the portion sizes are so small that...im still hungry... But well done Gracie-Ann’s We ordered the afternoon tea £21 pp and the food was amazing and we were so stuffed that we had to doggy bag the cakes. You are amazing value for money. The decor of the Tea room is great as well. Its like going back to a traditional England. Very friendly and welcoming staff. The posh hotels need to send their sales people to you so you can teach them how afternoon tea should be done. Will be returning more often.More

Lovely treat from my best friend for my birthday and food and vibe was great! Omelette with cheese, freshly made cocoanut and cherry scone and homemade carrot cake were all amazing! I love that you can choose different set menus and not just your standard...mix of sandwiches and cakes to share! I am quite fussy so being able to have my own omelette and pick a slice of cake was perfect! Staff are also friendly I Would definitely recommend as a lunch out with the family, couples, friends etcMore

After visiting many times before. Today we were Very disappointed. The waitress was very helpful and pleasant but the follow up was not wonderful .we ordered baby cappuccino which came out cold 5 rounds of sandwiches, 2 of which were meant to be toasted. The...you lady who took the order made sure the order we placed was correct before taking it to the kitchen. The order arrived with the 2 rounds that should have been toasted came out as plain bread and had to be taken back. The coffees were definitely not the best I have ever had barely tepid and after checking the bill we were charged £3,65 for ordinary latter but £ 5.55 for latter with oatmilk and dash of vanilla syrup...seems excessive £1.90 extra. I did complain ,but was a waste of time. After bad service and excessive pricing ,that was our LAST visit.More

We found a table which had not been cleared . On it were two almost full cups of liquid which we assumed to be very weak coffee which the previous occupants of the table had left . We should have taken this as a warning!.... We sat down and waited for service . Several waitresses walked past the table without a second glance . After several minutes we were able to attract the attention of one of them . We ordered a cappuccino, a macchiato and a fruit juice for our grandson . This was brought fairly quickly . However my husband said that the macchiato was barely recognisable as such and my cappuccino was undrinkable . I took about three sips and left the practically full cup on the table as had the previous occupants . Maybe we should have ordered tea as it would appear that the staff cannot make a decent cup of coffee We will not be visiting againMore

I would highly recommend this tea room if you're visiting Port Solent. You enter the space and it is decorated in such a cute way and we were pleasantly surprised with the space and view upstairs. The view from upstairs is amazing so you can...see the whole marina. The menu caters for everyone with delicious savoury and sweet options. we enjoyed ice cream and an afternoon tea -we were highly impressed by the service and quality of fresh food. The afternoon tea was ample with fresh sandwiches, cakes and scones that were lovingly prepared and presented. The fine bone China tea cups and plates make this afternoon tea experience extra special. the team greeted us with a smile and were available to make our dining experience special. A truly refreshing and enjoyable visit - thank you 🫶🏾More

Have been a few times but this time- Wow what an amazing experience! My friend and I both had omelettes, light, fluffy and great value for money. We asked for a window table but unfortunately these were reserved, however that was our own fault for...not booking in advance. The table we were seated at was no different in standards or service to the window tables. The lady that served us Tracey was so friendly and caring. Tracey and the owners have really stepped up standards along with atmosphere in the Tea Room over the last month. Well done and thank you, look forward to seeing you all again soon.More

Such lovely warm staff and amazing food with beautiful views. I was running late and arrived stressed but staff were so welcoming and warm I felt ok immediately. They could not be more attentive or helpful. The food was gorgeous and really nice coffee. So...happy I booked here after looking at all the options. Prettiest place and lovely calm ambiance. But come hungry ! We could not finish over sandwiches and scones and brought the rest home.More

Popped in for an early lunch, three window seats all marked as reserved. No one sat at two of the tables all the time we were there. We left over an hour after the time on the reservation signs. The food was disappointing too, the...poached eggs had been cooked in a frying pan and were tasteless plus laden with water, not enough butter for the toast and a gluten free sandwich measuring less than 3 inch square. Felt like we weren't welcome mixed with a general stingyness on the food served. Will not be going back.More
