Upstairs in a former banana warehouse on Liverpool's famous Mathew Street, you will find Tea Parlour, an elegant English tearoom hidden inside the first floor of the View 2 Gallery. Home-made cakes and confectioneries take pride of place beside beautiful vintage china, crystal glasses and pressed white tablecloths.

But the real star is the tea. Fine, loose leaf tea elegantly presented in individual glass teapots along with a timer, the emphasis is on taste. From black, green, white, oolong and tisanes, there is an ever changing menu of teas to enjoy from Rare Tea Company and Liverpool's own Phom tea.

On weekends, guests at Tea Parlour can relax and enjoy live classical music from the resident pianist as they sit and enjoy the beautiful and elegant setting.

Tea Parlour offers an airs and graces haven away from the bustle of Liverpool One, and is just a 4-minute walk from Liverpool Station. The venue is not licensed, but guests are welcome to bring their own bottle of fizz. Corkage is just £2.50 for a 75 cl bottle between two guests.

    Thoroughly enjoyable. The food and staff were really nice

    Lovely little tea parlour. Food was nice and staff were lovely. Allowed to take our own bottle of bubbly to celebrate a birthday and the staff even went out of there way to go out and get fruit juice for me as I'm pregnant. Waiting on staff were very attentive and friendly. Even though it is situated on a busy street full of bars/pubs and it was St Patricks Day, inside you couldn't hear all the hustle and bustle going on so you could relax and forget where u are. Highly recommend.

    Amazing character, amazing service and amazing food and cakes. You felt transported to a different time that made the whole experience just that.

    Simply wonderful

  • ((((( 16 February 2017 by Steve from Liverpool

    We had afternoon tea and the service was friendly and attentive, great 1920-30's type theme with background music to match, very relaxed atmosphere and lovely tea and cakes. What more could you ask for!

    A delicious afternoon tea, with a good selection of different teas to choose from. Sitting room atmosphere, with background music was welcoming. 1st floor location makes access difficult.

  • ((((( 25 November 2016 by Carol Mccarty from Liverpool

    Wasn't sure what to expect but the atmosphere was absolutely fabulous. It reminded me of Raffles in Singapore (from what I have seen on the telly). There was c 40s music playing in the background and the food was absolutely beautiful. All made on site.

    Would recommend a visit.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon tea at the Tea Parlour in Liverpool. It was a present to me following a prolonged stay in hospital and major abdominal surgery. The restaurant was lovely. My only problem was the entrance to the restaurant, you have to climb a very steep flight of stairs and the first 4 stairs do not have a hand rail. This caused us a few problems as I was with my Mother, aged 82 and following my op we are both rather unsteady. It would be great if a hand rail could be fitted for other users as I am sure that many elderly people would really enjoy the experience. The overall experience was great and the food was lovely too. The staff could not have been friendlier; just the right level of attentiveness without being "gushy".

    Brilliant venue, food was excellent. Service was lacking we found ourselves waiting for 20 mins before we got out tea, and people who arrived after us were served before us. Not completely satisfied with the service.

    I had afternoon tea in April, it was so good I couldn't wait to try it again and recommended it to many people.
    I took a friend on Thursday the 5th October thinking I would give her a special treat. I was so embarrassed.
    We had to leave our coats on the back of our chairs, even though there is a cloakroom but nobody offered to take them for us.
    We didn't like the water it was cucumber and something else, I asked could we have the water I had in April which was elderberry and strawberry, she went and enquired and we were told they had non left, then she returned and said they had found some, when it came it was just water with a strawberry floating in it !!!
    Our tea was only warm, obviously hadn't been brewed with boiling water, we didn't know about the tea strainer so we had large tea leaves floating in it.
    When the cakes arrived the scones were lovely and warm but rock hard on the outside, the rest of the cakes were alright nothing special, no comparison to the ones I had in April.
    So all in all it was a big let down, I certainly won't be coming again and will not be recommending it to anyone.
    Certainly is not worth £20.
    No comparison to my previous visit.
    Totally disappointed.
