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.

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

A pleasant surprise, and while it is different and fun, it could still do with a few little touches to make it really brilliant. Staff are delightful and very friendly ...worth the visit alone.

The atmosphere was really vintage. We loved the cakes (different options also gluten free) and the variety of teas. We'll definitely return.

Booked afternoon tea for my daughters 18th. Had a great time, though you do bring your own prosecco even though its £25 a head. Still, everyone enjoyed it.

I had suggested your tearoom to my friend, based on a previous visit where I had had afternoon tea which was good. However, on our visit on Saturday, we were both very disappointed in your food. We had ordered Greek Salad and a salad with avocado in it. Both were offered as served with brown, white bread or in a wrap. When the salads arrived, we were disappointed to see them in the form of sandwiches. I am sorry but no way is a Greek salad ever served as a sandwich, smothered in mayonnaise and with crisps as an addition. We have been to Greece several times and have never seen a Greek salad sandwiches between two slices of brown bread. Granted, you are trying to add your own twist to the recipes, but I think your approach is totally wrong. Just leave the salads on their own with bread served on the side if so wished. It spoiled the whole taste of a Greek salad.

What a lovely tea room. First visit from my party of 5. Nothing was a bother to the staff. The service was excellent. As was the afternoon tea. The gluten free option was delicious. Sometimes the cakes don't taste as good. Well done to the chef! We den took the uneaten cakes home. Would recommend to others. Mary Tougher.
