What a fabulous find. Enjoyed a selection of freshly made sandwiches, scones with fresh cream and jam, elderflower jelly followed by a lovely selection of cake all served with a choice of a huge pot of tea with tea leaves or a cafetière of coffee. Setting of a lovely old fashioned tearoom with beautiful hanging chandeliers and beautiful china tea... More

We used our "Ration Book" voucher for afternoon tea for two, which we were given as a Christmas present, today and we were very pleasantly surprised. The tea room was very tastefully decorated and the staff very accommodating to our request for it to be used for "normal" food as we do not eat fancy cakes. Instead I had a... More

We often call for a cuppa, lovely China cups and saucers, always served with a tea strainer and lovely toast and butter. Lovely staff.

I've been coming to this place since it first opened in 2011. Took my boys from newborns and made to feel welcome. Always been a favourite for light lunch or afternoon tea! It has changed hands and while the food is delicious as always the staff seem flustered and not as attentive. Maybe more staff needed. Such a shame because... More

Uttoxeter hasn't got much going for it, with the exception of The Vintage Tea Emporium. This is a little gem in an oasis of empty shops! The staff were very efficient, quick to clear tables, take your order & serve our food. We had a delicious Staffordshire oatcake with cheese & salad and a bacon roll, plus a cafeteria of... More

The staff were evidently not on top of things and the manager was unpleasant with the customers. We saw someone complain that they had been able to order after rather a long time, and others walked out not having been served. Tables were left uncleared and nothing happened quickly. The mixed antique crocs and cultery may be considered quaint, but... More

Well we have eaten lots of afternoon teas from some of the best in Staffordshire and this is up there with the best. Many establishments don't offer loose leaf tea, and for us that is one of the primary reasons we like afternoon tea. So this was our first visit on a busy Saturday afternoon. The staff were very good... More
