Morning visit to Brighton last week, and we decided to revisit the spot where I proposed to my wife....the Mock Turtle! It was a completely random choice when I proposed, but one of my life's best decisions! The more recent visit was OK, but just a little disappointing. We ordered a full English breakfast and it was pretty average. Dry... More

We were told we had to come to the oldest tea room in the city... it was sweet, but the scones needed to be a lot lighter. The waitress didn't understand what we required. Maybe a little more attention to the details would help. A real shame as we were disappointed as we're excited to enjoy our cream tea.

Nice and quaint tea rooms with a very good cheese and tomato sandwich. The soup (had the tomato but choice of three) was also very nice. They have an antique till which adds to the charm, but be careful, they only take cash (or cheques over £10).

I came here with two of my friends and i had the Mock Turtle Tea Blend, which was very delicious as they do make it themselves too. The service is always lovely, full of smiles and very welcoming. To eat I had the cheese and onion omelet with chips which was massive! The omelet was fluffy and light and it... More

Through the years I've visited the venue for Tea & Cakes - always enjoyable. However Breakfast was greatly overpriced @ £5.95 for one tea, one fried egg, one and a half slices of toast with garnish. Suggest travellers visit Figaro's in Kemptown for better value.

We as a family love this place. Wonderful cakes and mains, proper tea and good coffee. There is nothing modern about this place from the decor and cash register (no cards taken here) to the menu and the tea cups. Sausage, egg and chips, Welsh rarebit, Tomato soup, cream teas, rock cakes, giant doughnuts, all fresh and delicious. We've always... More
