    We met some friends who live in Kings Lynn and decided on afternoon tea rather than Sunday lunch in Cambridge. I had the savoury afternoon tea and the other 3 people had the standard afternoon tea. We were all really disappointed with the presentation of the tea. The finger sandwiches had a minute amount of filling and the sausage roll, chicken and scotch egg and cheese scones that I had were extremely dry and stale. On the website it states that there is a choice of cakes but we were not asked to choose what we wanted from their display. Will not be returning to Harriets. Our friends wanted to book SIX for afternoon tea but we talked them out of it so my husband and I felt that we did not want to complain in front of them and so paid the bill and left. Not a good experience except for the company.

    Beautiful place, nice food. Our eggs were a bit overcooked (poach eggs, not runny at all) but this is my second time there and first time they were fine. I presume they were overwhelmed with number of people.

    That was really nice. I went with my guest from LA, she liked it very much.

    We love to take our visitors to Harriets. It made such an impression on our friend from Austin that she sent us a voucher as a gift. It has so much English charm, the staff are welcoming and it somehow manages to blend a touch of class with a relaxed, pleasant atmosphere. There is plenty of choice and they make a lovely pot of tea.

    Our son graduated from Cambridge at the weekend and one our best alongside pleasures about collecting and dropping him off was Harriets. And last Friday they were the best...we kept changing our booking and Katya coped wonderfully with this.... Granny loved it and part of our chatter over tea included the pleasures our mothers and grandmothers spoke of of the old Lyons Corner Houses which Harriet's imitated so well... Thank you so much and can you expand Harriets please ...we can advise you of locations where we would frequent and tell more of our friends about....

    Wouldn't recommend this place to anyone, very dated and for the price of the afternoon tea....I've had better ambience in a busy garden centre cafe for atleast half the price. Staff were well mannered and polite but some looked slightly scruffy. Not standards I would have expected for a place like this at that price. Was my first trip and I wanted to treat my mum for mother's Day and get her sometime special, I infact spent the day feeling guilty that it wasn't special enough for her as was not what I expected at all!

    We had afternoon tea after a graduation ceremony and it was a perfect way to finish a special afternoon. The cream tea and cakes was excellent and the tea was very good indeed.
