We ate here on a Sunday morning for brunch, and it was lovely. The tearoom itself is so cute, staff were friendly and attentive. Food was delicious, good choices, and catered well to veggies too which was good! The whole experience was efficient but we never felt rushed to leave etc. Would definitely recommend and will be back in the future.

The food was excellent. It was just a pity that there was only us in the restaurant so that did affect the overall ambiance. Great value for money. Would and already have recommended to friends and family. We will return.

Very busy but service still very good. Food very nice. Only 2 small things I didn't like. One was that we had the smaller afternoon tea @ £9.50 and it all came on one long plate and, when eating the cake, it was too close to the salad dressing left on my plate. And secondly, I was facing the kitchen and one of the staff had long hair loosely tied up - she should be wearing a hat of some sort.

The only thing we were disappointed with was that when we looked at the menu online we read it that we would be able to choose sandwich fillings from those listed and offered the choice of swapping the scone for cake but we weren’t given these choices. What we had was delicious though.

I love Dolly's and have been here before but I was disappointed to be told that as we had booked between 12 and 2 we had to eat food when all we wanted was a nice coffee. I booked the table online and it should be made clear upon booking. The waitress was quite rude when we had no way of possibly knowing this so just a note for the future.
