Crumpet's Tea Room (4 reviews)
I have eaten at Crumpets many, many times and always find the food delicious and presented beautifully and service excellent!
Imagine my surprise when I read this review as my mother and I were at Cumpet's on Mother's Day at a table near these ladies. They were unhappy with the one complimentary glass of champagne and wanted a bottle for the table. They loudly complained about everything, especially wanting more alcohol. We didn't hear what the owner said to them but she did aproach the table and we heard them say loudly 'everything was awful'.I just had to set this record straight, everything was delicious, as it always is and we will gladly be back since I know that table will not. You can't believe everything you read! Make the trip if you're looking at this website, it is worth the trip!
I visited crumpets on Mothers Day this year with 4 other Women. When we were asked how the food was, we said that the chicken was a bit dry. We didn't say, but we also thought the 'twice baked potatoe' was a frozen then heated kind which was terrible. While this is the 3rd year attending on Mothers Day, I must say we were very dissappointed in the service. As we were drinking tea and exchanging gifts after brunch, the owner came to our table and loudly said, 'I'm sorry you were dissappointed with the food, but 40 other people disagree!' And then she walked away!!! We were all stunned to say the least. She was very rude and snippy and spoke loud enough so the other customers could hear. We were stared at and talked about until we finally decided to leave. I think that a professional resturaunt owner and polite person would have offered us something else or appologized and asked what they could have done better. I will say that I will not be returning until there ia a new owner.
despite the name this is a regular restaurant that serves lunch and dinner and only serves a proper full/high tea on select holidays. tea is bagged and a pot of water to make yourself at table. with that said, the lunch i had was good. there name sake fresh made crumpets 4star. nice staff. beautifully decorated bathromm. located in there downtown area and had good street parking. if i was driving through that area i would stop again but i wouldn't go out of my way to go there.
