I love the look of this place and the idea is great in the central location however I have visited twice and both times been disappointed. Not with the tea as there is an interesting array to choose from, rather with the experience. The attitude of the staff has let it down, they are not very accommodating and welcoming. On the last occasion (mid morning) I just fancied coffee, my companion wanted tea. I asked the obviously overworked looking woman who was working alone, what type of coffee they have and was told " you've come to the wrong place, we specialise in tea" I knew that but just wanted to know how the coffee was, instant or filter etc! Then there are the cakes which are very un appealing. They seem gimmicky and more suited to a children's party. They always have things stuck to them, there was one with pretzels sticking out of the top which I noticed no one was choosing. I'd rather see traditional cakes like lemon and poppy seed, Victoria sponge etc. That would be far more exciting. There was also a sink full of dirty dishes which you can't help but see as it is on the other side of the counter which wasn't very pleasant. The overworked woman (although there were only 4 other people in) obviously hadn't had time to do them. Perhaps it'll be 3rd time lucky if I try again.

I've been to The Olde Young Tea House several times now and I've always had a great experiance. The food and cake is always nice and fresh and you couldn't ask for any more choices for tea!

How great to find a superb independent tea shop with such a fab choice of teas, cake and friendly staff with outstanding knowledge of the teas. Great relaxing place, a secret gem....but not for long!!!
