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.

Lovely Christmas afternoon tea - loved the special touch of Christmas tree mini biscuits ! Great that you can bring your own bottle and very reasonable £3 corkage.

Brilliant venue to celebrate my retirement with a bit of class. Afternoon tea for 20 of us was excellent and the ladies who waited on us were all so patient and pleasant. We will be back for sure!

Paid a visit after receiving a voucher for afternoon tea for two last Christmas, this was my first time at the tearoom and the food and service was wonderful! The staff who seated us and then the lady who took our order were all friendly and service was fast. The food itself was delicious and I look forward to going back in the future!

We booked the Hidden Tearoom for a 40th Birthday. The service and choice of food was of excellent quality. We had a separate room and nothing was a bother to the staff. A great day was had and we would certainly recommend it.

Hidden Lane Tearoom were very accomodating when I asked to move our Afternoon Tea booking a couple of hours earlier. We had a wonderful time, the sandwiches and cakes were delicious. The only suggeation I would have is that I would prefer finger sandwiches rather than triangles...but that is just personal preference. We would definitely return if in Glasgow again.

Had a beautiful afternoon tea with my mother, who's a coeliac! She said the Gluten Free selection was the best she's ever had! Will definitely be recommending this place to others and will be back! Thank you

3rd time here at the weekend, delicious afternoon tea yet again. More expensive than other places but standard very high so don't mind paying the extra. Also paid for unlimited hot drinks which is definitely required for the amount of savoury and sweet treats - think this was included last time...feel it should be included and not an added extra. Seated in upper level, very warm with the sun thru the windows. Busy weekend so service a bit slow but didn't affect enjoyment. Will absolutely be back again 🤩

Absolutely amazing and would most certainly recommend The Hidden Lane Tearoom to everyone. Everyone working there had smiles on their faces and was always very helpful with everything.

Absolutely amazing! I wouldn’t go anywhere else for afternoon tea - being a vegan I find it hard to find places that cater as well to my preferences as what Hidden Lane does ♥️

It is very reasonable price and enough food! Sandwiches were delicious. Just one little thing, but when I asked for a non-chocolate dessert, they just gave me a tiny biscuit in exchange for a late chocolate cake, which I know it’s my fault for not liking the chocolate but just seemed a little unequal! Otherwise great service and I love the atmosphere there too!
