Possibly one of London's sweetest little bakery/tea rooms with restaurant attached. Truly home made scones and very fresh sandwiches. To dine they have two seatings in the afternoon and it is definitely the place to go for a special occassion, so book ahead if possible....More

An excellent tea house and restaurant. Brimming with old world charm, and really attractive environment for anyone visiting Kew Gardens, or just visiting to eat traditional English breakfasts, afternoon pies and roasts (which are especially good and thoroughly recommended). Nice staff and owners, too
