Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A friend told me she would take me to Stony Stratford for a late birthday lunch. Having looked at the places available online, I found Miss Havisham’s Tearoom. It’s just my sort of place, so when my friend agreed I was happy. When we arrived...we were told to go upstairs for table service - probably an important thing to know if you’re physically disabled. We were given a choice of tables. The music was 40s/50s at a guess, giving it a vintage vibe. We ordered our food and drinks, and it didn’t take long. The food was delicious, and freshly made to order. I was really pleased with our visit and would recommend to others.More

I visited with family, and we had the afternoon tea. It was windy, and our table was rocking. Staff noticed this and moved us to another table. The tea and coffee are both excellent and the cakes are freshly made and very tasty. It is...simple, good food in a place that is charming and always a pleasure to visit.More

Set in a small arcade off high street is this incredible tea room. The scones are incredible and generous. Tea is served in proper China and the service is stellar. The room is upstairs and a table by the window makes this an incredible experience

Went for a lovely Afternoon Tea at this very quaint Tea Room. The sandwiches, scones and sweet treats are all freshly made and beautifully presented on fine bone China crockery, and the ambience and service were exceptional! The ladies made our afternoon feel special even...though they were very busy with locals coming in for lunch/brunch or tea/coffee and cake - always a good sign! A couple of tips - you do need to order Afternoon Tea at least 24 hours in advance, there are stairs up to the tearoom, and it was a shame we didn't know we could have prosecco until we were leaving - still, next time!More

Yummy yum yum.... A fantastic value for money afternoon tea served here. Food is tasty and varied, and the tea is tealicious. When booking you can opt to choose your sandwiches and cakes so don't forget to see what's available for you. Clotted cream for...the scones is Rhodda's... what else would it be?!. Staff were extremely friendly, helpful, and attentive. Lovely little tearoom. Don't forget to book so you don't miss the opportunity to grab a table.More

My Auntie and I had afternoon tea here today. One sweet and one savoury. It was absolutely fantastic, so fresh and homemade. The scone was huge and warm. The staff were also really friendly and attentive. The tea room is traditional with vintage cups and...saucers. When booking I said that it was for my aunties 50th, and they put a birthday banner up next to our table and decorated one of the cakes with a 50 candle. The tea rooms themselves are small, so I’d recommend booking, however they do takeaways too. Wonderful independent business. Could not recommend enough.More

We visited for the first time. I booked afternoon tea after hearing lovely reviews. There is a sweet and savoury option which was a refreshing change. Everything came beautifully presented. They kindly made a jam sandwich for my fussy teen which was greatly appreciated. We...couldn't finish everything so the left over cakes were bagged up for us to take home. The scones were among the best I'd ever tasted. Definitely worth a visit.More

What a lovely experience. Our 1 year old was having a really tough time sitting at the table whilst we enjoyed the most scrumptious afternoon tea! The new owner, Katie went the extra mile to ensure we had a great experience and was so kind...to our little girl! We will definitely be going back! The cake was amazing and the scones were one of the best scones we’ve had! Thank you for such a wonderful Saturday afternoon, we will be returning!More

We took my friend here for afternoon tea for her birthday, with my husband & toddler. Despite ordering three days in advance service was quite slow and the toddler did become rather grizzly & hungry. The food was good when it did arrive and we...enjoyed a lovely afternoon tea. Not quite as good as Teapots in Olney though - but would go back.More
