About The Hidden Lane Tearoom

The Hidden Lane Tearoom is found tucked in a sunny corner of the Hidden Lane, officially known as Argyle Court. Nestled amongst multicoloured and higgledy-piggledy studios, home to craftspeople, musicians and small business folk, the Tearoom has become a hub for this creative community.
Off the beaten track, you'd easily miss us, but the location has become part of the charm, a real hidden gem!

We offer a varied menu from pancakes for breakfast, homemade soups and sandwiches for lunch, to our luxurious afternoon tea, voted second best in the country in Peter Irvine's highly acclaimed 'Scotland the best.' We also offer a lovely range of homemade cakes and bakes all day, including our classic Victoria sponge and our secret recipe scones.
As a tearoom, we like to emphasise the tea, not just what we serve but how we serve it, we have a range of over 30 loose leaf teas to choose from, and we serve them all properly! Enjoy your tipple from vintage teapots and beautiful cups and saucers. Nothing matches, so there's more to admire!

Spread over 2 floors we have space available for private functions, from sophisticated tea parties to business lunches, our flexible space means we can cater for a great range of private events.

Vegan afternoon tea was absolutely delicious. Service was friendly but slow... we felt a bit forgotten about upstairs. But they were busy to be fair. Would go back! ☺️

Staff were excellent! They very discreetly made reasonable adjustments to accommodate mobility issue for a member of our party making the whole experience highly enjoyable and relaxing. Food was great and the kids high tea a winner with our young ladyou. Will absolutely recommend to others and be back soon

My birthday afternoon tea here was fabulous. My friends who decorated and brought a birthday cake etc said the team could not have been more helpful. Several of my guests who had never been there before said they would be back. It was perfect so thank you

We had booked an afternoon tea for 9 people for 2pm. We all arrived by 2.15, the tea which had previously been booked weeks in advice and deposit paid for did not arrive until after 3.30. We brought own drink but had to keep going to ask for water and other soft drinks as staff did not come to us. When the tea arrived the first sandwich had a hair in it which was returned. As for service again when it came to the bill we again had to go and ask for the bill as staff weren’t around. Food itself minus the hair would have been ok but I won’t be back due to that and poor service.
