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.

Your restaurant was extremely kind in extending our gift voucher so I want to say thank you. I loved the restaurant, the furniture, the china and especially the music. However my tea plate was covered in jam so when I moved my cup and saucer from the plate on which it stood I marked the table cloth with jam. So sorry but actually not my fault. I have one suggestion. Should you not give each individual their own strainer? I was straining green tea through the same strainer as my husband who had white leaf tea. Who knows what our final cup was. Haha. The food was delicious and all very fresh. What a lovely touch to let us take home the cakes we could not manage to eat.

Lovely celebratory afternoon tea served in very ambient surroundings.
Very 1920s atmosphere about the dining room and entrance . Background music made it feel like we were in a 1920/30s jazz club but not played that loud that we couldn't heat ourselves speak.
Food was adequate. Scones could gave been a little but bigger but there was plenty for 2 each at least. We took our own proseco and just paid £3 corkage. We all took a doggie bag home with left over cakes and scones so plenty of food on the table for our party of 5.
Waitress and chef lovely people. Very chatty and welcoming . Would deffo recommend

On arrival at tea parlour they had no record of our booking. I had booked three - four weeks ago however they were able to accommodate us. Food and drink was lovely, service was friendly however could have been more attentive. They were very busy which I think was an issue for them. It was very hot but the manager opened a window which was kind however there was a lot of noise from the street below (Mathew St) and witch the buskers it was difficult to hear conversation at your table or enjoy the ambience. Would return again but not on a weekend.
