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.
I love the hidden lane tearoom - have been here for a few vegan afternoon teas now and they are always absolutely brilliant. The service is always fantastic, and especially so yesterday when I had to cancel last minute due to friends having weather/transport issues. The staff were so understanding and I was able to pick up the vegan items that they had ordered especially for us and take them away, which was much appreciated, as they understandably couldn’t cancel without charge considering it was a specially ordered meal. Thank you so much, we loved it :)
£15 is quite a lot for relatively small afternoon tea. 1 sandwich and one coffee and few mini cakes. Would expect drink refill and more sandwiches for that price.
Had a lovely afternoon at hidden lane. Been lots of times before and never disappoints. Food is great and staff are very kind and helpful
Had a lovely time. The food was delicious and the service very friendly and welcoming. Will definitely be back
Love coming here. Nice atmosphere and good service. If I was being picky, it would be great if customers were given a wine cooler to keep their Prosecco etc cold 😁
Best morning tea I've ever had with amazing loose leaf tea and the staff were so friendly. I will definitely be back, a great hidden gem that everyone should try.
Accommodated all of our dietary needs! Dairy free, veggie. Thank you so much. Wonderful afternoon tea.
Special birthday afternoon tea. Yummy cakes, friendly service couldn’t finish all the cakes on day so had a nice wee parcel takeaway to enjoy again today
Afternoon tea was delicious!
Had a fabulous lunch on Sunday food tasted amazing, with first class service
I had a birthday afternoon tea for 20 girl friends and it was excellent! The room was very pretty, and the staff were very accommodating. Various dietary requirements were catered for, you could bring your own wine. The food was fresh and homemade, really tasty, everyone had a great time. Thank you Hidden Tea Room for being quirky, a bit different, non corporate and doing your own thing I'll be back and so will my friends!
Great smiley service, very attentive. Food was very fresh and tasty. would happily go back.
Excellent place great value for money. A wee gem.....
Friendly service, great cake and tea. Definitely worth the visit!
Would like to have known at time of booking that there was a service charge for a table of six and above.......
Best afternoon tea!!
Such an amazing place, the service was excellent, food and atmosphere over the expectations. Will come back very soon definitely
Lovely atmosphere ie..lovely pace and surroundings for our girlie afternoon..Nothing was too much bother for the staff..chatty and pleasant. Will be back.
I only gave 4 stars because I didn't like a couple of the sweet treats and one of the sandwiches on the afternoon tea for two.
Afternoon tea for 5 ladies. EVERYTHING was perfect. Staff attentive and fun !

Amazing atmosphere always here, high tea was beautiful and bring your own drink..what’s not to like 🤗
Absolutely wonderful afternoon tea!
The best vegetarian afternoon tea I’ve had in Britain. It wasn’t just a side thought, they actually made special sandwiches that I could eat The cakes and scones were delicious. It’s such a beautiful tearoom, in a lovely little alley
