They emailed me with all the info and told me they could reserve me a big table near the window. I forgot to respond so we... More

Wow. If only they have more places like this. I'm from Tamworth and regularly visit Burton. Shown this place by my mum and since been a number of times with several different people. Sometimes just for tea, sometimes a nibble. Kid friendly and a perfect spot for a refreshment. I must say this place reminds me of my grandma's but... More

We have visited Helens Bakehouse most weeks for a while now. The staff are lovely, helpful and efficient. There is a lovely atmosphere in the tea rooms, relaxingly retro music and mixed crockery. Could happily sit people watching there all day, and watch the industrious cake making in the background. The food is always lovely, we usually go for breakfast... More

Fantastic warm and cosy place to rest a while on a cold, blustery shopping trip. Food that reminds you of tea at granny's house all those days back when. Friendly and genuine customer service. Great pot of tea.

Had a lovely bowl of porridge and a cup of tea. It was real porridge and not the instant type that i would have got in McD's. Really nice. The staff were very friendly too.
