Lovely food with around 4 vegan options as well as soups and sandwiches. 2 or 3 vegan desserts are also on offer. Dozens of teas are available. Coffee is excellent. Relaxed atmosphere, great music and friendly staff. People with restricted mobility may struggle with access. Toilets are downstairs.

Fab selection of delicious teas, lovely food and friendly staff. I was surprised they allowed a man to bring a big wet dog in, not very nice in a cafe so unfortunately I probably won't go back

Quirky and hippyish vibe. Smells quite strongly of incense. Wide variety of teas (two thumbs up for that). Not a huge amount of food to choose from and some are slightly over priced for example I had a bog standard chicken salad for £6.20. we where all set to get a dessert as they looked delish however in the 1.5hours...

Great little cafe for any kind of visit. Not a massive lover of tea but coming here always makes me appreciate the different varieties out there. The place itself has a very welcoming and homely feel with well prepared and tasty food. The only downside for us was the long wait for our food, one of the members of staff... More

I visited with my two daughters on the 28th December and we tried to order three meals. The gentleman waiter refused to accommodate our request for a plain chicken wrap for my youngest daughter even though we had done so successfully on a previous visit. He pressurised us to hurry up as the cafe was busy as we hesitated what... More

The food we got we had to wait for nearly an hour for. I finally got my mushroom soup and it was salty.

A friend recommended the Mystery Tea House and I was the first to arrive. I received a friendly welcome and sat waiting for my friend. The staff were so relaxed and laid back I immediately felt comfortable and not under any pressure to order. The tea menu is extensive and it was pleasing to see that all the tea's were... More
