We sat on the sun terrace and were given our menus with a smile. I ordered the casserole which was lamb and delicious! Lesley had the soup and sandwich option, again great tasting food. The huge teapot for two gave us three cups of tea each and the price was reasonable too. It's at times like this I wish I made a note of names as the three guys who all played a part in serving us varied from excellent to not really engaging. The younger guy being the latter. This did not detract from the five stars as poor service from moody youngsters who have something better to do is common place everywhere now! Well done to the other two men who were excellent and cared about doing a great job! Thanks and see you soon

Looked a nice place so we went in for lunch, but left disappointed and hungry.

The coffee and tea were good quality. The soup was just average, but the special welsh rarebit was a poorly presented tiny portion with so little topping I could hardly taste it; therefore poor value.

In additional to the disappointing food, one of the staff members was arrogant and insulting; so we paid up and left.

We went to the Tea Shop during a visit to Harlech. The man who "greeted" us on entry was not particularly freindly. We then took our seat, chose our things from the menu, and waited for someone to come and take our order. And waited. And waited. Meanwhile, during this extremely loooong wait, one of the waiters was meticulously folding serviettes a mere one meter away, and could clearly see that we were waiting and looking around for somebody. After 10 minutes, we got up and left, and never returned, and will never return. Terrible, terrible service from extremely arrogant people.

For a quick snack and recuperation, coupled with great views and great staff you can't do much better. Chicken and brie sandwich is to die for.

Our family of 4 thoroughly enjoyed our lunch of delicious ham sandwiches & lamb casserole. Excellent tea menu and very friendly staff. Would highly recommend.
