I was there with my friend and we couldn't choose a better place to eat. The tee and the cakes are simply delicious. The enviroment and the staff are so lovely, you can spend a great time there!

This tea shop is just what you want when you are weary and thirsty. It has excellent cakes but if you are hungry-er there are more substantial meals on offer. The staff were attentive and the tea and cake arrived promptly. The decor is traditional,...More

In a side street near the coach station, this is a tea shop that has become a bit of a Brighton institution and has quite a quirky, and old fashioned feel to it. Nice cakes, good quality leaf tea, and the savoury menu is good...More

With rains clouds threatening and hunger beckoning we found ourselves outside the mock turtle and as such sought refuge inside this quirky cafe for a spot of lunch. It's different, it's not a chain/franchise, the decor is, well, dated old world British tea house, the...More

My sister Eleanor worked here 40 years ago so had to visit. Delightful staff and real tea in a real pot. With a real strainer. I am fussy about tea! Scone was microwaved to "freshen" it. No where's perfect. Just serve fresh scones!

Had breakfast here on last day of holiday in Brighton. Service was very poor, cafe a little grubby and food of very poor quality. Coffee very weak and all in all not great. Not worth even half the money paid.

A quaint little cafe that has a small menu but is to a high standard. The tea is potted leaf and was so nice. We had the soup of the day (tomato) and that was very tasty. Butter and fresh bread as you would expect...More

Visited this tearoom on Monday morning with my friend. The display of delicious cakes and quirky cups in their window display drew us in. We were welcomed and told we could sit wherever we liked, despite it being very busy. The staff couldn't have been...More
