Had a lovely afternoon tea with my daughter for my birthday. The staff were excellent and the quaint, calm ambience made for a perfect setting. The left over cakes were beautifully boxed up for us to take home. Absolutely lovely - will defintiely go again.

I was told this place was good and they were right. Very nice and old fashioned. One word of warning they do not take cards, cash only.

This cafe is delightful. Staff are friendly and efficient and all dressed in period costumes to match the Victorian decor. Cutlery and crockery is beautiful. The menu is surprisingly comprehensive. Large selection of vegan dishes. Food was fabulous and reasonably priced.

We walked down Lord Street looking for somewhere different and came across Westminster Tea Rooms after eliminating the usual high street chains. We checked that they served meals as well as tea and cakes and found that they had an extensive savoury menu. We enjoyed...More

Yes the tearoom is wheelchair friendly. No step to get in, flat floor and a wide access toilet with a wall mounted arm. Enjoy your visit.
Do you have to contact in advance for gluten free afternoon tea? Is it served all day?

Only Sunday roasts are served 12~5.30 each Sunday, the rest of the menu is on a walk in basis 10~6pm, 7 days a week, (last orders for hot food is 5.30pm each day).
What are the price ranges and what do you get to eat please
