Amazing place. The staff were fantastic and the food was even better. So much choice for afternoon tea and was allowed to mix and match to suit our needs. Homemade scones were out of this world!! Defo will be back.

This is a 2 up, 2 down terraced house. It has a vintage feel to it but it is very cramped. The staff were very friendly and promptly showed... More

Lovely little place, all vintage decor and staff were dressed in vintage style. Afternoon tea was £8 per person and was good value for money. You got loads the staff were extremely helpful and polite. The venue is small so it would be difficult to access with prams etc.

The tea room is decorated in 1940's style and the staff are dressed to suit. We shared an excellent ploughman's lunch. Having been in many times, the welcome and service have always been very good.

This was a birthday treat, cakes to die for, excellent coffee and super service. The menu caters for most tastes and the mix and match crockery / furniture adds to the relaxed atmosphere. Highly enjoyable! Thank you.

The vintage tea rooms is such a refreshing change from the run of the mill chain coffee shops. Situated in a converted store room next to the bus station the place is one of Chesterfield's hidden gems. The afternoon teas are now a regular treat when pay day comes. Be warned though - it can be very busy, but if... More
