“Delicious afternoon tea!”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

My grandparents were lucky enough to win a competition to have afternoon tea for 2 at Mr H's Tea Room, and it's safe to say they enjoyed every mouthful! (I even had a couple of sandwiches and a scone!) They had a selection of sandwiches with a pot of very delicious tea, finished off with a cream tea. They throughly enjoyed the whole tea and they would like to thank Gary for making their tea and afternoon extremely enjoyable!
Highly recommend! Must visit!!

Reviewed 6 July 2014

Great place to get refreshment after a busy day. Great coffee and sandwich made exactly as requested and you cant decline the cake. Gary seemed genuinely pleased to welcome you as if you were entering his home.
Would definately call again if in the area.

Thanks for a great review. We pride ourselves on our freshly made sandwiches made to customer specifications. We welcome all visitors as though it is our home which we believe is the right ambience for a Tea Shop. We preserve the art of conversation as well as keeping the kettle on!

“Very friendly & welcoming”
Reviewed 26 June 2014 via mobile

After seeing on trip advisor that this tea shop had reached top spot I had to pay a visit, of which I was not disappointed. I had a beautiful cup of coffee and a very tasty slice of cake. The man serving made the experience though with his brilliant service and wity humour. Will certainly be returning and would would recomend to anyone to pay a visit. What a gem!

Wow! thank you very much for a great review. Glad you enjoyed your coffee and cake, which was Gluten Free. What makes my job easy are the type of customers that we attract. It also helps that we do enjoy what we do. Customers come first and foremost. Thank you again and remember the kettle is always on!
