We stumbled across The Old Vestry more or less by accident, we weren't looking for anything to drink but so glad we ventured in.
Lovely decor inside . A terrific choice of real leaf tea, coffee is available but mainly tea. Served in a china cup with milk in a jug and a tea strainer not a tea bag in sight!
Fresh baked scones and toasted tea cakes with butter and jam all served by lovely staff.
The bill for 2 under £10
Wonderful place, give yourself a treat and pay a visit.

Well all I can say is you have to visit the vestry tea rooms to feel the warm welcome of the staff food is all home made pots of tea is so lovely and you no you are getting a nice cuppa the prices are fantastic myself and my friend was there for tea and a bit of lunch we had a pot of tea each also a slice of home made corn beef pie with side salad. And for afters we had fruit scone jam and clotted cream price for both was £10.00 . And you have no rush to leave But the whole place and deco is beautiful warm and so friendly P.s It's like been in another time. Fab for tea party's etc

Lovely place to have a nice tea and cake, served with beautiful china. Very vintage look and unique place to go. Staff are very helpful and friendly! Something Sunderland has needed for a very long time!

Went to the tea rooms today and as always staff are very helpful, and very smart this is a very quaint place to go to have one of the best cup of teas I have had, the cake is light and all homemade. I can see how they have been awarded 5 stars.
Will go back again and again you pay for what you get and in these tea rooms you get a lot.
