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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We celebrated my mother's 90th birthday as a party of sixteen in this charming, traditional tea rooms. The afternoon tea was delicious and served on beautiful crockery which suited the vintage decor perfectly. All dietary requirements were catered for, and unlimited presse, coffee and tea...offered. The service was perfect. Attentive, welcoming and friendly. It was the perfect place for our celebration, I cannot recommend The Tea Rooms highly enough. An added treat are the two upstairs rooms full of amazing local crafters' work to purchase. Toiletries, jewelery, homewares, cards, ceramics, glass, accessories and much more!More

I would heartily recommend calling this place for an order of cakes. My boss bought us all - as a treat - a choice of 3 cakes. I had the Victoria sponge. Packaged lovely with my name on it. I expected a slice of cake...when I opened it, but, what I got was far better ! A generous slice of cake sat inside calling me to it it there and then! (a slab as my mamgu would say!) washed down with a cup of coffee. Perfect!! Diolch/Thank you Steve Male and thank you The Tea Rooms! Really enjoyed. :)More

I was looking for somewhere for my wife and I to have lunch on the way between Gower and Merthyr. Very glad we found The Tea Rooms in Glynneath! Phoned ahead to make sure there would be space, told it shouldn't be a problem but...reserved the table for just in case. Loved the decor and received a friendly welcome. We hadn't realised in advance that there was the craft shop as well which was a really lovely surprise! We decided to have a hot lunch, I had lamb cawl and my wife had faggots and both were really tasty and filling as well as being reasonably priced. Despite being rather full, I decided to have a cake for sweet which was really tasty too! After eating, we had a look around at the crafts and bought a couple of things from different artists. All of the artists are quite local too which is great! We would definitely return and would recommend a visit!More

Lovely welcome from the staff at these tea rooms. Fabulous choice of cakes and tasty eats. The only downside is they don’t advertise all they have on a board or menu immediately. My friend and I had sandwich’s as those/ panini, baguettes, etc. was all...that was in menu. The cakes were all in a cabinet on view. There was a specials board with just soup and more sand which fillings. After we’d ordered someone had home made corned beef pasty and another had a jacket potato??! These were not advertised anywhere. When queried the lady said they hadn’t put them in the specials board yet. That was my only gripe as I didn’t go all that way for a sandwich (although tasty!) However, the pecan and caramel cake was to die for. Gift shop by local crafters upstairs and worth a visit, although expect to be accompanied and followed. I guess it’s a sign of our times but I felt uncomfortable being watched so closely and ended up not buying anything. Tip: ask what the specials are/ what’s available today rather than just go by menuMore
