Lilly's were amazing I rang up in morning as wanted a afternoon tea to take away and they were only more than happy to help me, it looked amazing with all added little touches and made it really special. Thank you so so much.

Friendly, welcoming Tea Room, but that title undersells this establishment it's a Restaurant that serves High Tea ( ? ) Whatever label you put on it the quality of food and service is outstanding. Great value for money and always a joy to eat there.

It's in a lovely spot and the service was fantastic, but £6 for a very average coffee and a very dry slice of fruitcake! You can get better for less than a five minute walk

I arranged for my wife and some her friends to have an afternoon tea at Lily's as part of her 50th birthday celebrations. They had a great time and enjoyed every minute of it. I'd thoroughly recommend Lily's and will be using again.

The staff are hard working and this cafe is always rammed. It's a nice place for lunch or coffee, but the menu can be a bit samey and I feel it's a bit overpriced. The owners work hard and it's very popular.
