Upon arriving, we were greeted very warmly and shown how to arrange flowers in a teacup. It was a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere and we were able to work amongst ourselves, with a... More

I've wanted to visit this little place for ages so my husband booked us in for a vegan afternoon tea with our 4 year old daughter for mother's day. What a delightful place! Quirky, fun, beautiful and interesting. We had a look round the shop at all the lovely bits and could have bought everything, such pretty items. Lots of... More

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! Very nice!" which is the equivalent of winning an Oscar or Bafta in the tea-serving world!! Lovely tea, friendly staff, nice people to chat to in an artistic and yet... More

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.

We were just walking back to Fletcher Gate car park when we came across this place by accident. Looked intriguing inside and the menu looked good. We were met by polite staff who took our order. The lay out to the cafe is unique in that it has a vast range of handcrafted gifts not only in the shop, but... More

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! :)

Its a lovely calm and relaxing place to be, even when there's a party of sewers, or afternoon tea ladies it's a friendly atmosphere :) The staff are always friendly and talkative, I can't fault them at all.

My daughter bought this experience for us as she'd signed us up to take the November Vegan Pledge. The tea room was beautiful, the staff were brilliant and the food was exceptional!

We found this beautiful shop and cafe by accident, it's is an absolute treasure. We enjoyed looking at the lovely range of items in the shop and had a fantastic lunch in a great atmosphere. Great choices for veggies and vegan options too - the staff were all so welcoming and kind, especially as our baby was quite 'vocal'.

The staff were all fantastic, all very patient and more than happy to come and help those of us who were more “slow craft” than “speed craft.” We did five different crafts in one day.
