Sunday afternoon visit with some old friends. We had a great time! We had the afternoon tea and even though our table was booked for 2 hours, we stayed well beyond that, sampling many gins as we went into the evening. Afternoon tea and as delicious and the waiter was very knowledgeable about the gins on offer. Will definitely be... More

I have reviewed Cup a few times and l have never found anything to complain about, it really is that good. My husband said " What more can you say, people will think you own that place" well my attitude is that if you have good service and fantastic food from caring staff, why not let the world know. Today... More

Ahh it's a tasty time... Horribly cliche as I did feel, being English visiting Scotland for work and ending up in a tea room for lunch, it was good food, simple bit good. Staff were lovely and the building itself is beautiful (inside.. Outside it's scaffolding and rain) only had a basic sandwich but will definitely head back on my... More

Called with friends late last night for a drink and were told that they only serve GIN in the evening and we were given a Gin menu, the menu itself was self explanatory apart from the finished prices, when you take a close look at menu there is a figure next to each of the Gin titles but there is...

I love cup. We love the afternoon tea and the lunch menu. We've been to two gin tastings as well as just to the gin bar in an evening and really enjoyed it. Recently my boyfriend told me he came for breakfast and had a "frozen muffin" and he wouldn't come back! I was adamant this was a one off... More

Went here for a friends Hen Party yesterday, there were 15 of us and all the staff were absolutely lovely. All our needs were accommodated, e.g. dietary, seating, luggage space. The food and tea was delicious, I highly recommend Cup Tea Lounge for Afternoon Tea.

A surprise gift of breakfast for two in this delightful tea room was far above expectations. Friendly staff, lovely setting, very busy but not overly noisy, variety of set menu excellent, all in all a memorable visit.

Great tea, great food and a beautiful venue. There's a good food choice and even a vegan cupcake. The best bit though is the extensive choice of teas: spoiled for choice.

Excellent afternoon tea experience in the Cup tea Lounge. Booking process very efficient, staff very pleasant and helpful, food excellent - but don't choose the unlimited re-fills option unless you are very hungry!! Good to experience the transformation from tea shop to gin parlour late afternoon - very clever.
