The restaurant is very small --sometimes have to share tables, or else expect a neighbor's elbow in close proximity. Nicki has a lot of rules; some are quite amusing. We found the food to be okay, nothing too great --but good if feeling homesick for England. The bill was surprisingly expensive. I would go back but only not very often.

Although tea and sympathy is crowded and small, the food and service is great. it's small size is nice and personal, and their tea time sandwiches are fabulous.

If you like your personal space, tea and sympathy is not for you. The tables are stacked on top of one another but that shouldn't take away from the quality of food and drink. No doubt, this is the best cup of tea in town, brewed the "proper way." When it comes to food, the welsh rarebit is outstanding and the beans on toast won't disappoint.

I had been going on to american friends about proper bacon for long enough, when another expat told me of this place. I took in a friend. The bacon didn't come out with the rest of the food, then it came out about 10 minutes later, after i had finally got the server's attention. It came out crispier and smaller than your average stateside strip. Gutted. HOWEVER, everything else was good enogh for me to return. We all have our off days, and while i was in, it was very busy. So as far as advice- i would say give it a try. The crumble and custard took me back; good stuff.

Perfect delivery on those cold winter nights when your feeling a bit sick or down.- We love their chicken soup, fantastic mac and cheese, chicken and leek pie and welsh rarebit.

As an Englishman I have to say I'm not impressed. The food is authentic (but then how hard is it to screw up Myers sausages, mash and Heinz beans?) I wish they'd tidy the place up and organize it so the kitchen doesn't vent in to the restaurant. The smell of frying cheese clings to you for days.
