The queue for Sally Lunn's was out of the door, so I came here. It's perfectly nice, cutely-decorated and friendly enough, though the waitress seemed run off her feet, she could have done with some help. I always get a bit annoyed that they call...More

Our second visit to this cafe. It's okay, but there is better in Bath. Quite busy so service was a bit slow. My wife liked her Bath bun, but my sandwich was only so so. Nice coffee.

The cream tea selection was lovely. I tried a famous bath bun (not too impressed with the product- just a large yeast bun with sugar cubes) but the presentation was lovely. Good pricing- far more reasonable than tea shops closer to the Pump Room. Definitely...More

We had the best afternoon tea snack of our journey here. The cheesy cauliflower was superb, lovely texture, tasty, hot and it went well with the bread. The service was spot on and very friendly. Not expensive and yet had a good range.

We ordered some afternoon tea there, which was really nice. Tasty sandwiches, super-creamy clotted cream and a nice Victoria sponge with a cup of tea. The staff was a bit busy but they were nice and helpful. We wanted to try the Bath bun but...More

Spotted this little tea room as I was trying to run away from the hoards of people in front of the Roman Bath. As the tea room was packed at that time, I didn't get a chance to enjoy their cream tea, but had a...More
