Afternoon tea

Snookerado, Leeds, United Kingdom
We were booked in for afternoon tea on Monday the 12th Feb., didn't really know what to expect as this was a gift, but what a treat we had in store. Sandwiches, cake and scones with cream and jam (the diet starts tomorrow). FABULOUS.

Cottage stay

Susan T, Sunderland, United Kingdom
What a lovely,friendly and delicious tearoom this is.. The first impression was the staff. They were so friendly and pleasant. We sat outside as we had dogs . Nothing was to much trouble for the staff. They brought our food and drinks outside for us and I must say they make a very good Latte and fruit/cheese scone. .We will definitely be popping in here again when we go back to Bellingham.

Railway Treat

Susan C, North Yorkshire, United Kingdom
We found these tea rooms by accident but it was so good we returned again the same day. Set in three vintage railway carriages from the 1950’s the furnishings, seating and decor were all totally authentic if fact I think they still use these ‘Blood and Custard’ carriages on the Trans Pennine route from Leeds to Manchester. We were served by three delightful ladies choosing Tuna Melt and Ginger Overload which we would recommend highly. The menu is not extensive but everything is well cooked and well presented and inexpensive. We counted eight different species of birds on the bird feeders!!!

Very nice indeed!

Tea and cream scones...excellent. Others had panini and hot choc. Not massively cheap at around 6.75 each but canny enough setting and good home cooked food and friendly service. Lots of locals which is always a good sign. Nice break from our walk.

Tea and cake.

Friendly staff and comforting homebakes housed in a retired railway carriage. Standard fayre, sadly not quite first class.
