Waited 30 minutes for 2 bog standard teas and 2 rounds of toast and jam and were charged an unbelievable £8.50 for the pleasure!

Don't get a lot of places with some character inside. However I do find the choices of food quite limited. Otherwise service was great, teapots and teacups were of excellent quality, fab place to have a catch up with my girl friends - as long as we're not too loud (or would get awkward stares from other customers, lol!).

Beautifully decorated with a bustling, yet quiet and reserved atmosphere. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. They are always meticulously dressed and have manners that seem to be from a bygone age - polite, thoughtful and attentive. The range of tea is excellent; as is the choice of cakes, scones and pastries. In January, my mam celebrated her birthday with her three daughters and grandson - opting for the Afternoon Tea. We were able to choose the sandwiches and also had input to the sweet selection. It was a great success! I would sincerely recommend the Old Vestry Tearooms for weary shoppers, friends wanting a catch-up chat or family gatherings.
The Tea Rooms also display work of local artists and we have been very pleased with our purchases.
