The company I shared at the high tea was the best part of the experience. I understand what makes Martha's Pantry special is the quaint decor and "Downton Abbey" feel but seriously it's just grubby. The tea cosy's were filthy and the cups felt like...More

We recently visited Martha's pantry for high tea. The place is quaint and cosy. Food was lovely, and staff were very helpful and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon High tea together, and would recommend anyone visiting Wellington, pays a visit.

This is a really feminine place, @ the top of Cuba street in Wellington. Pink striped walls, flowers, wall mirrors, fancy China etc: the high tea is great! Tasty morsels, a great range of teas ( I had the masala chai). Highly recommended. Great helpful...More

I have visited Martha's Pantry quite a few times over the years, and I have to agree with the recent reviewer who commented that it is not as good as it used to be. I have only continued to choose Martha's Pantry because of the...More
