We went here for a coffee and a cup of tea with a little bit of something to eat. There was lots to choose from and some very tempting large cakes all set up in glass domes. Nice window seat to watch the world go...More

I visited Josephine's with a friend - what a delight. It is the middle of Nottingham and all around is bustle. Once the door closes, while you can observe the outside world it does not intrude into this sea of calm. The music is convivial...More

Thank you for your review, we try very hard to ensure service is warm and friendly. Too many places either lack service altogether or management seem to frown upon staff spending too much time talking to customers, I hope we're getting it about right and...More

Was on the way back to the car, and was walking past when we realised it was still open, so called in. Josephine's is one of the newer "Pudding Palaces" that has opened in Nottingham and is more of a traditional tea room rather than...More

Lashings of custard indeed! we agree, it doesn't seem worth the effort to mix up a custard for a little jug, drown that pudding we say! I think you were wanting the Earl Grey - such a top seller over Christmas and we struggled to...More

I made it my mission to finally visit Josephine's on Boxing Day after seeing it being set up before its opening. I love tea rooms and Josephine's absolutely hit the nail on the head. Nottingham absolutely needed this refreshing, beautiful tea room and now I...More

I had booked for the first time for a meeting, it was so elegant and fitted in beautifully with the Theatre Royal situated directly across the road. Service was good old fashioned style, I have certainly found my place for the perfect cup of tea.More

Warmly welcomed by Steve (thank you) and the staff. We thought that afternoon tea would be better than a "Pre-theatre meal" and we were right! We had afternoon tea, and my wife chose the savoury tea. Everything was simply delicious, tasty, yummy and we had...More
