There’s really nothing more British than a lovely cup of tea, something the owners of Richmond’s The Tea Cup restaurant and tea room know only too well. From the formal elegance of the simple black and white exterior with its gold coat of arms, on the partly cobbled Brewers Lane, to the warm interior with its country house styling, complete with quirky details, Gustavian furnishings and modern chintz wallpaper, The Tea Cup is everything one would hope for from a traditional tea house. Service is appropriately refined and professional, the staff as enthused about the range of teas on offer as the guests, and quite a range of teas it is they’re offering. For hungry visitors The Tea Cup provides a whole host of wonderful treats including deliciously sumptuous home cooked cakes and pastries and full afternoon teas with sandwiches and sweet nibbles accompanying a perfectly brewed pot of The Tea Cup’s finest.
