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.

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!

I really loved this quirky space. The wait staff was super friendly. It is not a fancy spot...more of a neighborhood tea shop. Baked good were yummy. Relaxed and not rushed.

Loved it! Fresh, tasty and delicious. Great variety of options. Most of us had the famous afternoon teas. While I loved the curried cauliflower soup and date & honey scone with my tea. Staff were terrific even with how busy it was. Definitely be back. Thank you so much for a lovely afternoon!

Me and my friends really enjoyed our afternoon tea at The Hidden Lane Tearoom. Although it is truly hidden it‘s worth the hassle of finding it! The sandwiches were fresh and crisp, the fillings were very well thought through. I have no words for the cake selectuon as they were one of the best I‘ve had so far! Huge recommendation for Glaswegians and tourists:)

We had the vegan afternoon tea for 2 and absolutely loved it - a great selection of cakes and sandwiches, much more inventive than we had anticipated for a vegan afternoon tea! The service was great, and we would definitely recommend this place to friends and family! The only downside was that the cafe is pretty warm, but that’s to be expected of such a small space. Wouldn’t stop us coming back!

Lovely tearoom. Grilled halloumi wrap and sandwich delicious as was Bombay chai. Sticky toffee pudding also fantastic but chocolate and cherry cake didn’t have much flavour. Service was friendly and relaxed. Really enjoyed our lunch. Thanks

We asked for water and had to ask again 15 minutes later. My friend went to the toilet during this time and three members of staff were just stood around the till chatting. We got the water another around 20 mins after we had originally asked. We also asked for the bill three times. Each time someone different said they would bring it to us so we eventually went down and paid. The food was outstanding but service could definitely of been better.

Overall a nice afternoon tea! The gluten free selection could have been tastier - especially the scones which were a bit too doughy and dense.

The sweetest place, excellent location and a good first impression. There was a very loud party sitting behind us and it made conversation strained at times. The volume wasn't what I was looking for during my afternoon tea, although still enjoyable. Would return again !

The staff were warm and friendly. We had Afternoon Tea for 6, including 2 piscetarians and a vegan. Everybody was well catered for with a plentiful supply of various delicious sandwiches, cakes and scones with cream and jam. Random selection of beautiful teapots and crockery. We'll all be back.
