Brilliant service very friendly and quick. Hot tea with a good amount in the teapot, beautiful tea service. Great tasting generous portion cakes. I can't fault it and have been on many occasions. The only problem is that it is often busy so please book if you don't want to miss out.

I visited the White Rabbit a few weeks ago for a friends baby shower. It is a lovely little cafe with very welcoming staff and a friendly, cosy atmosphere. The afternoon tea was absolutely delicious and fantastic value for money! I am looking forward to going again very soon and couldn't recommend it more!

Visited here for lunch with my daughter. This is a beautiful little tearoom away from the main shopping streets. There aren't that many tables and you are lucky if you get one. If you are lucky enough it is well worth the visit. Lovely atmosphere and very relaxed. Despite tables being in high demand you are not rushed and aren't... More

This lovely little tea room is just off one of the main shopping streets and is a tiny oasis in the hustle and bustle of Nottingham's busy shops. It is very charming with a large selection of teas and drinks as well as cakes and sandwiches. Great pit-stop place!

My new favourite place! The White rabbit teahouse not only looks beautiful, with its vintage interiors, but is filled with delicious cakes and friendly staff. What a treat its is to visit this teahouse. I'll be back again soon to sample some more delights from the menu.

Visited a few weekends ago with a large party for a friends baby shower. Arrived to the cutest little set up where every detail had been thought through which really added to the overall experience. The salmon sandwiches were served on the softest bread and the cakes really tasted as though they were fresh out the oven. Would definitely recommend... More

I discovered this café recently after wandering up one of the side streets just off Bridlesmith Gate. It’s a lovely little café, a great find. The afternoon tea was good value for money and the scones were particularly delicious. I hear there’s another White Rabbit in Nottingham, so I’ll be trying that soon!

I recently went to the White Rabbit for afternoon tea for my friends hen do. I had originally booked it before I found out my friend had the wonderful news that she was pregnant, unfortunately when we got to the White Rabbit we found out there was nothing on the menu for afternoon tea that she could eat as it...

My friends organised my baby shower at the Bridlesmith Gate White Rabbit and it was perfect. It’s a beautiful venue, really charming with so many quirky little details. The afternoon tea was delicious and the staff were really friendly and attentive. Great gem of a teashop in Nottingham!
