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.

i have to agree with Jenny. I'm afraid you have your destination wrong. This is a restaurant/tea shop during the day and a Gin palace in the evening.
