We may live in Canada, but try to visit Stafford yearly to see family and friends. Every holiday includes a trip (or two or three) to Cup A Cha. The food is always delicious The service from Amy and the staff goes above and beyond.....The atmosphere is fabulous...always new Royalty items to check out. Best tearoom in the area. Would highly recommend. 🫖☕🍰👑🇬🇧More

the best chesse on toast with onion in the town, thick mature cheese on white bread, and the ' cup o' tea' should be put as an urn!, instead of the little pots for 2 in the rest of the town, all from china crockery,...so nice, now my favourite place in stafford.More

Visited this tea room for the first time today and Wow! Absolutely stunning! I was amazed at all the memorabilia regarding the Royal family - I was more than impressed. The staff were very courteous, pleasant even though they were real busy. We had lunch...and we were not disappointed at all - the food was lovely. I cannot fault this place at all. Thank you to the staff who made myself and my service user welcome. I would highly recommend a visit!More

It is a year since I enjoyed a meal at this venue..... and I was pleased to discover that standards remain as high as ever. My lunch was tsasty and well-prepared, and the proprietor and staff were, as always, friendly and enthusiastic. Visiting this venue...makes a customer realise what "good service" really is, and that in so many retail and catering establishments some of the staff are both uninterested and not doing their best to ensure that the customer enjoys their visit. Highly recommended.More

Stumbled across this tearoom with a difference in Stafford by accident - and we were very pleased we had. It’s that little bit different, and brings to mind words like quaint and charming. If you are a fan of the royals, you will love this...place. It is like a museum of royal memorabilia - something different to catch your eye every way you turn. And of course, the menu is royalty themed too. Particularly interesting is the range of different afternoon teas - the Duke, the Duchess, the King, the Queen … through to the Tipsy. We were there at breakfast time and ordered hot drinks and tea cakes. The tea portion was generous - I ordered Earl Grey, and it was a tasty brew. The toilets even continue the theme, although it is slightly weird to have the Queen keeping a close eye on you in the toilet! In the cabinet were several cakes which looked very tempting. There are quite a few tables here, and lots of natural flight flooding in through the windows on two sides, a benefit of its corner location. Plenty to recommend a visit to this cafe tearooms.More

Came here for lunch during a very difficult and emotional week. We were treated so well, service is top notch. We loved our food which was pate, pancakes, cheese on toast and tuna baguette. My daughter loved her teapot! Just what we needed to allow...us to talk. I will be back very soon. Thank you for your kindness and service.More
