    As you can guess by the name, this is a tea place. Has really good scones, but also a decent selection of wraps/sandwiches and lunch food.

    Matcha latte rating: acceptable. Mind out because they make it with honey unless you ask them not to.

    Try the Lunch Box special. £7.95 got a toasted sandwich, a side salad and a huge piece if cake.

    Lovely tea, lovely scone...portions of jam, cream, etc decidedly niggardly!

    Charming place and cozy, but I was still hungry after the egg Benedict.

    Mismatched china, kitsch decor and the best value Afternoon Tea this side of the border!

    Got up and left, no scones left, only cakes with nuts and waitress described the cake options as a bit rubbish...!

    Fantastic tea rooms. Sooooooo busy though. Don't be scared of a 5 minute wait.

    Our flowering tea was served in this pot (pictured) even though they stock clear pots. Lack of care. I used to love this place but the less they seem to care, the less I want to come back.

    For all the awards they win, the staff here always seem clueless

    I was excited how cute this place looked.. But we were disappointed by our lunch, the fact it took half an hour for a sandwich and our clumsy waitress. The tea was the only good thing.

    Nice afternoon tea. Stale scones though. Suspect the grannies were not up baking them first thing this morning.

    Screwed us out of our booking for 8. Leaving it impossible to find high tea elsewhere last minute. Best to avoid. Plus it's got less charm than Starbucks.

    Had a lovely afternoon tea here, although was marred by our somewhat abrupt waitress

    If you like sweet milky tea and chocolate, try the Chocolate Abyss Tea Latte. Yum!

    Was a regular, but was turned away on sat as they were full - said I would wait, only to be informed that the cue was full - there where only 5 people waiting, probably just 2 tables, such a shame

    Standards are slipping. Today's server didn't know how to pronounce rooibos and probably didn't know what it was. Shame. I used to love Eteaket.

    Good luck ever getting a table. Standards are slipping as well. Definitely not as good as it used to be.
