A Tea Room fit for Royalty

The walls have been painted a rich Dutch blue, embellished with touches of copper/ brass, vintage mirrors and botanical foliage to keep things feeling fresh, modern but still with a rugged Scottish ambience. Not forgetting our abundant cake display which welcomes our guests as they arrive. The room is reminiscent of the French patisseries of Queen Anne’s childhood so the Tea Room is really fit for Royalty!
