Richmond Tea Rooms

Richmond Street, The Village, Manchester M1 3HZ

The afternoon tea for afternoon tea lovers across the land. This place is what I would call H E A V E N. It has an extended afternoon tea menu choose from the ‘Richmond Tea’, the ‘Queens Tea’ or even, the ‘Hatter Tea’. All served with, well - Tea! A unique setting, with a traditional English afternoon tea setting the local entreprenaurs have given a ‘nod towards a Tim Burton inspired design’. A quirky, whimsical and fun setting this is one for the fun at heart.

Annies - Afternoon Tea, Manchester
