We've always really enjoyed Hetties, but this time the service was a little slow, they had run out of some cake and scones. What we did have was as lovely as always, but definitely room for improvement this time.

Lovely cake though huge slices. Disappointing that my top 2 choices for tea, including earl grey, weren't available. Staff were welcoming and friendly

We finally managed to get into this tearoom having always found it queued out the door. A great selection of blended and speciality teas and coffees. However, their own blend Earl Grey was sold out so a rapid reelection happened. Not at all disappointed and a good selection of home bakes available.

We stopped off at Pitlochry at about 3.50 last Saturday and although the cafe closest at 4.30 we were made extremely welcome and late orders were available. Staff were very pleasant and although we asked if they had had a busy day they said yes but nothing was if any issue to them Would highly recommend it. All items we... More

We were looking for a place for lunch in Pitlochry, and chose Hettie's. We reckon we made the right choice. Chicken mayo sandwich, cheeseburger, and cake were all excellent. Split pea soup was very good, as was the tea. Staff were friendly, service was satisfactory. Pink and turquoise colour scheme was somewhat unusual.

The best little tea room iv ever been too, charming and quaint! The staff were so lovely, great service too. We had a sharing platter of different cakes and a pot of tea, delicious 😊 I would definitely recommend this place, lots of different teas you can try and the next time I would do just that...

Hetties was recommended as being wonderful, unfortunately I was disappointed, coffee OK, coffee cake ok but not really wonderful. Coffee served and I had drunk it before the cake arrived, the waitress served several others in between. Would I visit again, probably not.

BoBo's, Chief Tea Taster. at Hettie's Tearoom, responded to this review

WizzB Ach, what a shame... after someone recommending us too. Rest assured we are normally a bit more "wonderful" than that. One thing I would say though WizzB is that we always do the orders... in order, so those people served in front of you had definitely ordered ahead of you. Seems the cake cutting person wasn't keeping up......my apologies........ More
