Thanks so much to all the lovely staff. My friend and I booked for afternoon tea and we were not disappointed. Will definitely be back. Lots of delicious tea, tasty sandwiches, the most delicious scones (which my friend can't stop talking about!) and beautiful cakes to finish off with. What more could you want. Oh yes, the staff were delightfully... More

Called in to get supplies of tea and coffee as Christmas stocking-fillers and took the opportunity to sample their cake. A fine piece of lemon drizzle! There cannot be many places where you have a choice of twenty or so single-origin [ some carefully-crafted blends] coffees freshly ground and served to your table. Really attentive service - I was offered... More

We came for the coffee and stayed for lunch. Where else within 50 miles can you choose any coffee they sell (about 20 varieties) have the beans freshly ground and share a full cafetiere of coffee from India, Brazil, Latin America and Africa. We had a lovely homemade Butternut squash soup and a hearty pate salad. Great for a quiet... More

The selection of teas and coffees was outstanding. The service was excellent including a first class knowledge of the beverages available . The real shock was the price I was expecting it to be much dearer considering what we had. I will definitely be returning to the great value for money gem!

The Northern Tea Merchants dates from the 1920s, when I suspect the busy Chatsworth Road was more picturesque than it is nowadays. The stream of cars and lorries going past is never-ending. That said, this special teashop is clean, tidy and well-kept inside and out -- and once you step through the door, you don't particularly notice the traffic noise.... More

This tea room is a hidden gem in Chesterfield. Great for a lazy Saturday, have a coffee before shopping in town, watching the world go by on the Brampton Road. It reminds you of Colonial England with only the best ingredients, whether you like coffee or tea, you can find the perfect blend here. Also on the menu great homemade... More

It has been some time since we last visited and there seem to have been a number of changes. We enjoyed a lovely lunch and the staff were very nice and friendly. The food was exceptional although in my opinion, a little overpriced. Would definitely recommend this lovely tea room to others.
