    Anyone been here before?
    Im going to in the next few months as I love stuff like that. Think it looks really quaint and cute
    Any recommendations on what to try?
    Im thinking of having the china rose tea-layered with rose petals in the drying process
    Or china yunnan- a nutty citrus taste
    Or green and Chinese blossom-green tea leaves and jasmine flowers
    Here's the site if anyone else is interested http://www.richmondtearooms.com/Menu.aspx

    well it used to be better, they've got busier over the last year and its ruined the service and sometimes the quality of the food, if you do go, then go when its quiet so off peak times, dont go on a weekend, it ruins it if you get a rubbish seat (the kind they add in just because it can fit, not because it should fit) and the experiance is rubbish. also you can wait aggggeeess to get a waiter, if its quiet its brill, if its remotely busy- avoid! you can book which makes it better but they hardly ever answer the phone, and be specific about the table you want ie against a wall, in the tent, or in the conservatory.

    Hope that helps.

    We were thinking at actual tea time, around five ish on a weekday
    Where's best? Tent or conservatory? Think conservatory sounds nice of its a warm spring day

    the conservatory is inside so it's less glam than it sounds but it only has two tables so its good if theres 4/5 of you because you'll get it to yourself, if theres only 2 of you then you end up sharing it, which is really wierd because it's really tight & theres only one other table and you can hear everything in the other conversation, and you loose the alot of the sound from the restaurant so the 2 tables are in their own little world(thats happened to me, off putting!) but if you get both the tables it's ok, tight but fun.

    the tent is my favorite, the seats are much comfier, a soft sofa with lots of cushions and its also your own little world but you get more noise from the rest of the tables, it seats 12/14 i think but they split up the tables normally. its warmer in the tent as well, sometimes Richmond is cold as you get the draft through the door.
