'You will find some of the finest cakes, teas and coffee in this stylish teashop,' says Matthew. 'The tea selection features some rare and exotic treats and more substantial meals are served in the evening.' Ideal for a party, you can hire the whole premises – or a Moroccan room upstairs – as a private venue. One word of warning: if you're trying to save money, go armed with only the right change. Otherwise you might find yourself splurging on a chandelier, the shop's other stock-in-trade.
