Janice Grayson. In Leeds Creams, Queen’s Hotel, Patisserie Valerie. Bettys in Harrogate and Ilkley and Parliament Street Cafe in Harrogate. Not that I go out for afternoon tea often!

Donna-Marie Whatmore. It has to be Just Grand vintage tearoom in The Grand Arcade. Just a fabulous place to have a cup of tea and a slice of the homemade cakes and scones that are on offer, along with a variety of yumminess that awaits and the warm and friendly welcome that greets you as soon as you step into this lovely little gem.

Amanda Jackson. Definitely Just Grand vintage tea rooms...everything is homemade and delicious! Staff are lovely and welcoming.
