Thanks for such a lovely review, Andrea! We're so glad you enjoyed your time with us and we look forward to seeing you again
Food was lovely little pricey. Waiting area a little cramped and cold. Was sat near the door and it was cold when people were coming in and out. Staff were lovely. Was nice but wouldn't rush back.
Hi, Sharon We're sorry you were kept waiting, as you can understand we are a very busy restaurant, and we do strive to get people seated as soon as possible. I can only apologise for the wait you faced.
Jessica was our waitress and she was great - very bubbly and made us feel very welcome! Thanks!
Thanks for such a lovely review! I've passed it on to Jessica too :)
We had an absolutely awful experience at Richmond Tea Rooms. We had travelled from Bham she London for a 40th birthday party and were really looking forward to afternoon tea. From the minute we walked it we found the staff to be rude and unmotivated. They actually had the audacity to moan when they were asked to clean the table properly before we were seated (it was full of crumbs). We were seated by the door and there was a constant cold draft coming through. Staff were rude and unhelpful when we asked to move. The sandwiches were awful - one of the goats cheese and fig sandwich didn’t contain any goats cheese! The drinks and cakes were good. We were given 1 pot of jam to share between 7 of us. The manager was on her way out but listened to our complaint and asked Hannah to look after us. Unfortunately the service went downhill when Hannah left. Despite our complaints the tea room added a service charge. We were rushed for time so couldn’t argue against this. The waitress then miscalculated our bill 3 (yes THREE) times and took additional payments each time. Even if we had shortchanged in error, why would it take 3 attempts to figure this out? We strongly believe we ended up overpaying by over £10. The whole experience was absolutely awful and put a real downer on our day. The tea room had come highly recommended and when I have visited previously I had a great experience. Things have gone significantly down hill so I’d think twice before going. I will be adding this review to TripAdvisor and Google Review too as I know you’re unlikely to publish this on your website.

Fantastic service and food. Lovely atmosphere with very attentive waiter and waitress service. First time visiting but will definitly be returning. Thanks so much x
Everything was great, however we just felt like we had to keep asking for top ups on drinks and only got asked once if everything was okay. It was our first time here. We will still be coming back though.
Hi Abigail, thanks for taking the time to leave feedback. Sorry to hear you were disappointed with the service on this occasion. I will pass your comments onto our management team. We hope that your next visit to us will be a much better experience for you.
Oh I’m such a big Alice in Wonderland fan, Richmond Tearooms certainly did not disappoint. If I could live there I would😊 Everything was amazing, can’t wait to go back again. Well done the person who decided to open it👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

Thanks for a lovely review, Sara!
The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. The food is always delicious and worth the travel and a day out in Manchester! Looking forward to our next visit
What a lovely review! Thank you, Leanne! :)
The building was uncomfortably hot but apart from that was a lovely experience
Hi, Sarah Unfortunately, in a restaurant as busy as ours it does get very hot. We can only apologise
Bottled water and glasses arrived whilst we decided what to order, which was a nice touch. Our order was patiently taken, by the friendly waitress and now I feel rude because I don't remember her name. All the food and beverages were served in a caring informative way.(The waitress advised what was on the finger sandwiches) Nothing was too much trouble, we ran out of jam and clotted cream, and more arrived as requested. We were given an extra pot of tea so that 2 who should have shared a large pot weren't having to pass the pot over the table, thoughtful touch. One of my party didn't realise the tea was loose leaf, and a waitress kindly bought a new cup and saucer so that she could strain what she had already poured! Everyone in my party (13)was impressed by the quality of the food, its presentation and delivery. We will definitely be back.
Hi Michelle, Thanks for taking the time to leave us feedback. So delighted to hear that your group was so impressed with the food and service. We look forward to seeing you on your next visit.
