While crossing the bridge to get something to eat we noticed this quaint little building so turned back to photograph it. On a whim we decided to eat here instead. What a great decision this turned out to be. As soon as we entered we realised this was going to be something special. The staff are dressed in period costume and the interior decorated in a quaint but not tacky way.
Even though we simply had morning tea with coffee and cakes the rest of the menu looked scrumptious. On chatting with the owner/manager we commented on the fact that even though the tea rooms are designed to catch the tourist dollar it is priced for the locals. this place could easily mark up every thing on the menu as many other places do.

In Bradford on business I gave this place a try. It's quaint but good quality & is a pleasant change from a quick drink at Costa Coffee. Their knowledge of tea was very good & is something you don't often find these days - despite how much tea we drink as a nation. A refreshing change...in more ways than one.

One is struck by the sheer quaintness of this building which resembles something out of a Grimm's fairy tale . The waitresses dressed like Lyons nippies are friendly & efficient . Loose leaf tea was strong & the scones,still warm, beautifully crisp outside & soft & crumbly inside. One strange thing was near to closing time they seemed to be selective about who they let in!

Paid a visit to Bradford on Avon and visited here on a whim.
Seemed very busy but they managed to accommodate our group of 10 including two children by pushing tables together.
We did see people come in and be told there were unfortunately no seats available and told there would be a wait, I don't think they ever seemed to be unwelcomed.
I think it's lovely that the waitresses wear the original Victorian style outfits.
All of our group were pleased with their food. Wait wasn't too long, around 15/20 mins which considering how busy they were was quite good.
Didn't ever find the staff rude.
Tea was very nice, good variety of types available with original tea leaves, strainers, china cups and saucers etc.
Great selection of cakes and you get a massive slice!
Wouldn't go out of my way to go here but would definitely go back if we were around the area, hopefully next time it'll be a little less busy.

Almost defines quaint and cosy. Good range of teas as you'd expect. On a cold day try to get a table upstairs near the fire place. Friendly staff. I wouldn't go out of my way to go there but I'd certainly pop in again if I were in the general area.
