Very disappointed that we were not welcome here with our 4 week old son (who was fast asleep at the time). The lady who runs / owns it was extremely rude and hostile when she informed us that children were not welcome... despite several toddlers at another table. She told us that if we *had* to stay, we would have... More

Have been here a few years ago with my nan so returned with my mum today. And its safe to say I will not be returning! After waiting for 5/10 minutes by the door, we decided to just sit down. And wait. Then to be rudely told to move over to a dirty table as the table was already reserved.... More

Visited the Buttercup for afternoon tea. A very relaxed atmosphere and great friendly service. Good quality food too. The menu also consists of daily specials though did not try it. Need to book well in advance, though it's proved quite a challenge getting through on the phone in the past few weeks to book a follow up visit.

I have just returned from my first visit to the Tea Room. Friends had organised this for a group of eleven of us. The setting was wonderful so too was the food. we had endless cups of tea in beautiful china cups and saucers. I will certainly be visiting again.

I booked my wife and 6 of her friends in to The Buttercup Rooms for afternoon tea for her birthday every one of them said it was the best they had ever been to, the chef came and introduced each coarse and made them feel very special. I would have no qualms about recommending it to anyone

We have just returned from afternoon tea at The Buttercup Tea Room at Chapmore End. We were 5 ladies celebrating a birthday together. This is the best afternoon tea I have had anywhere and we all felt the same. The food is beautifully presented and extremely tasty. It is all homemade and the addition of a small glass of warm...

I went as part of a group of ladies for lunch. I had a very good prawn cocktail and stuffed aubergine which was delicious. The service did leave something to be desired though. On a hot day we were thirsty and having asked for an apple juice I waited about 20 mins and my friends apple juice didn't turn up... More

Wanting to treat my parents, on their recommendation we visited the Buttercup Tearoom. This was their 3rd visit & my first, neither of us were disappointed. We opted for the Afternoon Tea. Starting with original & tasty canapés we then moved on to a pea soup full of flavour. The dainty sandwiches that followed were delicious and had gorgeous fillings.... More
