Tea Room Review 2 – Jameson’s Tea Rooms, Sheffield


We reserved a table in advance for this popular cafe and tea-rooms on Abbeydale Road in Sheffield.

Jameson’s Cafe and Tea-Rooms didn’t disappoint! The staff were very courteous and considerate and we were shown to a table for two in the quieter 2nd room further from the main entrance. The table was nicely set with a table cloth, vintage crockery and silverware and 1940’s piped music played in the background creating a nice atmosphere. The piped music was soon replaced by a young male pianist playing on the piano in the main reception room. Playing contemporary popular songs in a gentle, soft, Art-Deco era style, added a lovely ambiance to our visit.


We ordered ‘Traditional Afternoon Tea’ at £12.95 per head from the rather lovely menu.


For this we had a choice of several fillings for our finger style sandwiches (with crusts removed), a choice of scones (we chose blueberry and white chocolate) served with clotted cream and jam, a pot of loose leaf tea served in a vintage style tea-pot, cups and saucers and finally a generous slice of fresh cake (there were about a dozen different cakes to choose from which included lemon, victoria sponge, coffee and walnut, chocolate, lime and vodka, almond, rocky road, gluten free options, sticky toffee, and fruit style cakes).

The sandwiches and scones were delivered to our table on a rather nice tiered serving stand. I think for something to feel like a lovely treat, aesthetics are important. The attention to detail to give a traditional vintage feel/experience were quite lovely.

We will DEFINITELY be coming back to Jameson’s. They have a good varied menu to entice us back again and we will be very much looking forward to it!

  1. How absolutely delicious that all looks! Just the kind of meal I love, and oh those wonderful scones…
    Thank you for sharing your experience Carolyn, glad you enjoyed yourselves.

  2. Those scones look wonderful but I am achieving similar results with the recipe
    from the list of wartime recipes using wholemeal flour and adding 2 tbs natural
    yogurt for richness and using chopped dates along with sultanas and honey,
    not sugar. My friends are suddenly visiting much more frequently and all go
    home with a small bag of scones which means I have to make some more

  3. Equivalent to your Sheffield establishment are many around the UK where the Victorian High Tea was an essential for well heeled ladies to indulge in – as part of the temperance movement. Yorkshire boasts Betty’s Tea Rooms in York, Harrowgate, etc and in Scotland it used to be Miss Cranston’s Tea Rooms in Glasgow or Crawfords Tea Rooms (among many others) in Edinburgh.
