WOW! We were so overwhelmed by our wonderful experience, I don't even know where to begin. I contacted Eleanor at Birkinshaw's weeks ago to coordinate an afternoon tea party where we would be celebrating 3 ladies' birthdays. She was very quick to respond and accommodating, and took great care to ensure the day would be special. And it was beyond special! Shear perfection from beginning to end! The best prosecco we've tasted, endless tea/coffee, delicious homemade delicacies (sweet and savory), and oh the clotted cream - to die for! The presentation, timing and attention to detail was incredible. We all agreed the icing on the cake was Adrian! His charm, warm smile, sense of humor, explanation of every item in the plate, wonderful stories etc. I can't recommend this place enough! We are already planning another party for August!

My husband surprised me today for our 18th wedding anniversary with Afternoon tea. We were entreated to the luxurious and elegant “Lady Clara”. If you dream of a proper English experience Birkinshaw’s does not disappoint! From the host/owner to the fantastic Yorkshire tea, scones, savouries & desserts, we could not have been more pleased! A royal experience not to be missed! Can’t wait for our next visit!!

What a little gem of a restaurant!! Authentic British charm, great food, great service!! Don't pass this place by...especially if you're a high tea lover!

The Windsor pie was fantastic! The scones with clotted cream and jam are delicious!

We will be back...probably sooner than later. Lol
