"I took my mum here for her birthday. She's never done a high tea before and we both had a fantastic time. The food is so good and filling. The scones of course were amazing as well. The interior is super cute and I would definitely go back."
- Samantha Baker
"Lovely afternoon at Mary’s. The staff were wonderful and the food divine. Free flowing French sparkling wine was just perfect with the lovely fluffy scones. Also the best Brie cheese that I have ever tasted. Thankyou to the efficient and welcoming staff."

"Delightful high tea in the Hills. Lovely afternoon with my favourite ladies for our collective birthdays. Excellent service, delicious food and a good combination of sweet and savoury. The scones are fat and fluffy! The selection of teas was impressive - we tried 3 different ones. Delightful way to spend an afternoon."
