I visited Bunty's on a late Sunday afternoon. Despite being busy, the quality of service was second to none! Faye, Amanda and the rest of the team at Bunty's treated us brilliantly. Me and my partner shall both be visiting again very soon.

Great little 1940s/1950s tea room perfectly placed for weary travellers on Steep Hill. Lovely atmosphere, great food, super service and the girls are excellently chatty. Best tea room in this part of the city...IMO.

We visit Bunty's regularly, the staff are lovely and friendly and the food is always great. Best afternoon tea in Lincoln! The homemade cakes are brilliant - especially the dandelion and burdock one! Never disappointed :)

Hi there. We do indeed provide a gluten free afternoon tea. We use gluten free rolls so not as dainty as your usual afternoon tea sandwiches however our customers rated them best on taste. We also make our own gluten free... More
