We popped in for lunch and was greeted with a smile. The menu had some of the usual items on it (didn't see any anions thank god). but had quite a few unusual things which all sounded scrummy. I had smoked duck and parmesan and gem lettuce in sourdough bread and my wife had a crispy mackerel open sandwich with... More

The main sitting area is quite small and narrow. I had salmon and asparagus risotto and tea for a late lunch. The tea was fine. Risotto was ok, nothing too memorable. Maybe having the high tea might have been a better option?

I used to have lunch here every day when I moved to Leicester in the 1980s. Not been back for 30 years until yesterday. It was such a disappointment. Our table was covered in crumbs, food on the floor and on one of the chairs. Loads of staff and at that time not many customers so no excuse. My tea... More

The place has deceivingly more seating than it would seem from outside. Love the authentic feel of a traditional tea room. We ordered the afternoon and the late afternoon tea option. Although ordering at 2:10pm , our teas arrived sharpish however it was another 50 mins before the food arrived meaning we had already finished our drinks. Was simply put... More

Came to meet with friends for an afternoon drink, ended up getting cake too as we couldn't resist. Will definitely be returning for an afternoon tea service as they look great and are a fantastic price too! Clean and tidy, good atmosphere and service with a smile.

We went for a birthday treat with my mama. We had a lovely experience. The good was beautiful. We had afternoon tea which is reasonably priced and quite generous. Well worth a visit.

Great service, only had 40 mins but I was assured that I could order and have time to eat which was the case. The food was very tasty and you can't beat a good cup of tea to go with it. Would recommend.

Thank slatersarah3
