“Fantastic afternoon tea! ”
Reviewed 18 April 2014 via mobile

We were staying in Holmfirth and typed into google "the best afternoon tea in the Peak District". Up popped the lavender tea rooms and we certainly weren't disappointed! We had the most fantastic food in lovely quirky surroundings. The owner was incredibly friendly, as were all the staff. We haven't stopped talking about it and are planning on heading back just to go there!

Reviewed 17 April 2014 via mobile

Beautifully decorated. Very well presented cakes which were gorgeous. Served on mismatched china tea sets.

Highly recommended.

“Best afternoon tea ever”
Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

Myself and my husband visited The Lavender tea rooms after reading the reviews on here, it is easy to find and in a great location. The tea rooms themselves are fantastic from decor to service. We both had the afternoon tea for £14.95pp this included a pot of tea which was regularly topped up, sandwiches with a choice of fillings,salad, a scone with cream and jam, Bakewell tart, chocolate cake and coconut cake. I couldn't believe how much came out on the large cake stand, we couldn't manage all of the food but the staff were happy to wrap up our left overs and send us home with a doggy bag. I would highly recommend this tea room there was loads of choice on the menu and prices were extremely reasonable and the quality and quantity was fantastic.

“Returning to a favourite”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

My second visit to Bakewell this year from Australia, and my first stop was the wonderful Lavender Tea Rooms. I couldn't get back there quick enough. Fantastic staff, added to the wonderful atmosphere, food and decor. Just a great experience, happy atmosphere, and plenty of laughs with the hands on owner. Do yourself a favour, and visit this great little tea rooms, you won't be disappointed. :-)

“A perfect lunchtime treat!”
Reviewed 11 April 2014 via mobile

This was our second visit and we were made to feel like old friends! Gary is a delightful owner, always up for some friendly banter!
The tea room is tucked away in Hebden Court and is a relaxing oasis after the bustle of the Main Street.
Food is delicious and the service is excellent! Our favourite place to eat in Bakewell!
