We were sorry and disappointed to read your review of your visit today, but feel we must respond on a couple of misunderstandings. Our website does not state that we offer vegan food, however, we do in fact have vegan options available at both tearooms....More

Lovely food, tea and an aura of quintessentially British. This was the first time that I visited. It felt like taking a step back in time (in a good way). The friendly, courteous staff were professional and perfectly complimented the overall experience.

Had an excellent afternoon tea. The tea rooms are tucked away from the High Street but we'll worth the deviation. It is next to the museum and above the sweet shop. Quaint and olde world feel. The selection of teas is very good. Every type...More
