If my mother visits a tea shop and declares the tea "alright" it should be considered a triumph! We popped in here recently and mother declared the tea "Very nice!

I came here a couple of years ago while visiting my sister in Nottingham, two years later I'm back from spain to visit again, and the one place I wanted to go and have tea and take our mum was Debbie's place. So interesting and a lovely athmosphere.

Treated my mum to vegan afternoon tea for her birthday and it was absolutely delicious! 4 types of yummy vegan sandwiches, scones with 'cream' and jam, and 3 types of vegan cake! It was all delicious and the staff were all lovely and friendly, would defiantly recommend and will definitely be back soon! :)
