Quaint! Just lovely & made me think of my grandparents Sunday Afternoon Tea. Sandwiches perfect, scones & jam with cream is delicious and the dainty cakes & small chewy macaroons truly scrumptious. I've been a few times and always had great food & atmosphere. The staff are helpful too.

I don't no what has happened to this place but I was so disappointed with my visit today! I previously made a review on here in 2013 saying how great the place was but feel the need to update after my visit today. We had to wait an hour for our food to arrive. I was disappointed to see the... More

Bit late in writing this as visited on Mother's Day. Cannot believe how much this place has changed and not for the better. We went and were seated in a cold corner of the shockingly badly decorated downstairs area and after waiting about 20 minutes were finally served. I had been looking forward to a Natural Blonde for ages and... More

I have followed Blondies Twisted Tea Room on FB for a long time, I have liked the fabulous photos of afternoon tea and homemade cakes and listened to friends rave about how good it is. I finally visited Blondies on Monday and I was horrified...the place was much tattier in real life than on the photos...old chipped tableware, dirty doilies... More

Visited with family for a belated Mother's Day treat. Booked a table prior so were seated straight away. Wanted afternoon tea for four but how much food you get isn't properly explained so we ordered too much. Can't really see cake choices as display cabinets not very big. Table runner had stains on it. China was ok. The inside is... More

Me and my family attended this shabby 'tea room' and the food was completely dreadful. I wouldn't have even fed it to a dog. The tables were stained and there were crumbs all over it, also stained doileys that looked like they'd been brought at pound land. The China was cracked dirty and GREASY! The tea drop menus state the... More

We were slowly shown to our table downstairs. We ordered pots of tea and then had to go upstairs to ask for milk. The place mats on tables weren't the cleanest. The service was friendly but staff weren't smartly presented (stained, scruffy clothes isn't a nice image). The menu is varied and all sounds good. We ordered jacket potatoes. There... More

I visited here with some friends for afternoon tea. The food was shabby at best. I had chicken mayo on my sandwiches and have been very unwell or days after. This place should be closed down - filthy place! avoid like the plague!!!
