Have visited this tearoom many times over the years. Very probably the best scones anywhere and great quality light meals. Only things stopping me awarding a 5 are a) the price which is getting a bit steep and the fact that they don’t top their...More

Great food, lovely people and you can buy anything you need for the outdoors in the shop. There is also some interesting history and stories about the Abraham brothers.

Sometimes it's hard to find somewhere pleasant for a cuppa but I can recommend Abraham's. The tea is wonderful loose leaf but don't pour it straight away, let it brew for a decent cup. The toasted teacakes are well worth a go too.

The cafe is at the top of the building so quite a few stairs to climb but worth it for the very good Americano coffee, which was of very good quality. The cakes were quite nice. The staff were friendly.

Hi Caribean2, Many thanks for your questions. We don't do an actual afternoon tea, as such, I'm afraid but you could always make up, or ask for, a selection from our menu. Sadly, we're not set-up for vouchers, as the cafe... More
