“Possible the worst Tea Room in the UK”
Review of Court yard

Reviewed 3 January 2014

Came into the room to be greeted by a man, I presume who was the owner, who immediately asked us if we were going to be eating. We said yes, but thought it was a strange question to ask in a Tea Room. We ordered a Bacon & Brie Panini and a Large Scone with Jam and Cream and a Pot of Tea for 2. Our order was taken by a nice young girl. Whilst waiting we saw the owner ask other customers who came in if they were eating. One of them said no and that they just wanted a Pot of Tea, only for the owner to turn them away stating that it was lunchtime and that he couldn't serve them if they weren't eating.
When our food turned up we received a small Panini garnished with shredded lettuce. Totally unappetising. The Scone was small with a small pot of cream and jam. Not the advertised large scone. The atmosphere is totally uninspiring for a Tea Room and we left totally bemused by the whole experience.

Came to this cafe at 12.30 for a pot of tea for two and the owner was reluctant to serve us, when we asked for more water for the teapot as it was only half full he said we would have to leave at one as he only served meals then and wanted the table free.. He turned to a customer and said they have tea here then go elsewhere for lunch. We sat outside and most of the tables were empty so we were not taking seats diners might need. We were part of a party of five and if he had not been so rude we may have stayed for lunch. We passed by later and the place was still mostly empty perhaps that tells him something.
