Absolutely amazing. Excellent service from the minute we arrived. Charming young male serving staff, polite and happy to answer questions about gin tasting. Breakfast consisted of fresh juice, unlimited tea or coffee, porridge, eggs benedict, fresh pancakes with crispy bacon, brioche link rolls, warm scones and Danish pastries with preserves. Everything was delicious. Will definitely return and on the recommendation... More

Fabulous afternoon tea. Freshly made scones , unlimited food and nothing too much of a problem. Have some boxed up for the family to enjoy when I get home.

I received a voucher last year for my birthday, cannot believe where the time has went that a year has nearly passed before I got to visit Cup. My friend is a vegetarian and how lovely that she was catered for as standard and not an inconvenience and not just cheese offerings. Lovely service, beautiful room, we really enjoyed ourselves....

We just wanted a cup of tea before catching a train. Three of us wandered into this amazing place. We each had a different drink - a latte, a fruit tea & a hot chocolate. As we waited we sat& looked at the amazing decor. Look at the website to see it! The staff were very helpful especially when we... More

Visited Cup with my mum for a lovely festive afternoon tea, had some very nice non alcoholic warm apple cider on arrival then some great festive savoury and sweet treats and huge selections of teas.
