It now has waitress services our lady was so kind and helpful, the food delivered to our table promptly and was fresh and well cooked.

This tea/coffee shop is consistently good. I have been quite a few times as I have always enjoyed the food, the atmosphere and the professional service. If you want fresh food and a delicious piece of cake, you can't go wrong. On occasions, I haven't had much time and the staff have been very helpful in their approach to enabling... More

We called in for a morning Coffee, Cake and Brunch and were very impressed with the way in which Tracey and her team have taken a great place to visit and added a further layer of charm and personal service. Great coffee from freshly ground beans and wonderfully large slices of cake. A tradition maintained and improved. Thank you.

Spotted this place driving through Chesterfield for work... Pop in every time I pass now as the wife loves their tea. Really reasonably priced and fantastic selection. Well worth popping if you can.

I've had a soft spot for the Northern Tea Merchant ever since they were very helpful to an art student relative many years ago. However, it's been years since I visited as it is on a busy road a little out of Chesterfield town centre rather than somewhere more picturesque. I visited recently because I was unable to get loose... More

Seems lighter and brighter since the refurb. Staff were pleasant and though they forgot the two pieces of cake ordered by my friends they were apologetic. However the shock came on paying the bill. Two pieces of cake and four coffees over £16. I'm sorry but I find that extortionate and will not be visiting again. Am I to understand... More

Thank you for coming back to us and taking the time to review. Since October I have been running The Pekoe Café at Northern Tea Merchants under license as my own business. Northern Tea Merchants had been subsidising the café part of the business for a long time and obviously this could not continue forever. As a result, we did... More

Whilst jacket potatoes, home-made soups and sandwiches will be served at lunchtime as well as a selection of cakes, pastries and afternoon tea, complimented by the most extensive selection of teas and freshly ground coffee for miles around.
