“Delicious tea selection, warm service”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

I am a tea person and so I walked in wanting some guidance on the selection. What I got was a personalised service with a good dose of jokes and laughter to help me choose the best tea for me. It was the Hettie in the Heather and another one which was the Earl Grey. With this I had a high protein flapjack which they had baked especially for the Etape race (with the bikers in mind). It was delicious.

Warm decor and smells of tea as you walk in which is lovely. Slightly confused with the hi-tech buzzer system to place orders (is it necessary in such a small tea room?) and the tea pots could be updated (just plain metal ones, burned myself trying to open it to stop the tea from brewing) but it didn't affect the lovely experience I had there. A very friendly service and great quality tea.

“Lovely tearoom”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

We had an amazing bite to eat here on Easter Monday. We had to wait 10 or 15 minutes for a table, but once we got our table, the food was just out of this world. The service was fantastic and very attentive staff. Will definately be back! In fact cant wait!!!

“Nothing Changes”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

Just reading the reviews over the last while and all the same negativity - overpriced and the "Hettie Jacques" welcome. Have looked in over the last 3 years since our visit in December 2012. They were going for investors in people - they certain win the award for their prices!!!
