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 absolutely love Hidden Lane Tearoom. Such a great atmosphere, the food, and tea is always amazing. I love how none of the tea services match, but all go together so perfectly.

Service lacked attention to detail, all food that was brought to table (upstairs) had no cutlery, therefore a bowl of soup served and no spoons, another 3-4 minute wait while soup is on table. Long wait to clear plates and after going down to order cakes after 15min wait told to go back to table and waitress eventually came. Not sure if it was just because we were upstairs but looking about there was a distinct feeling of being forgotten about.

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.

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 😁

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!
