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.

Treated my mum out for afternoon tea and we couldn’t be any happier! The tea was gorgeous and so were the cakes and sandwiches! Lovely staff as well. The tearoom is well hidden, so you’ve got to keep an eye out! But other than that, will definitely be back.

Had a lovely time at the Hidden Tea Rooms, as did my Mum and Mum In Law. The soup and sandwiches were lovely. The BYOB is a lovely touch and the corkage is good value at £3. Prosecco glasses were provided for us. Love the quirky crockery. My only suggestion is that it would be nice to have an extended option of bread. For example wraps and ciabattas. I had the halloumi sandwich and think halloumi always tastes best on a wrap as apposed to regular bread

Had afternoon tea for three although food was lovely felt that one cake stand for three people which had enough food was a bit expensive at £51.00 and we were charged for an extra pot of tea

Perfect day out with friends, with wee afternoon tea. Only issue, when asked did we wish to order more drinks and said no thank you, waitress took of downstairs and returned with the bill which was promptly slapped on table. Had she given us more timer to chat, we would have sat on and ordered lots more. (Table of 6) Very ambrupt end to a lovely day out. Excellent venue and food.

I was disappointed with the afternoon tea. I reserved a high tea for two more than a month in advance and notified Hidden Lane of food allergies. They assured me that substitutions would be available/made. A day or two before I was sent a confirmation e-mail and reminded Hidden Lane of my allergies. When we got too the tea room, they acted as if they had never heard of the allergies. There were no substitutions available for the jam. The sandwiches were very good, but the desserts and scones were somewhat bland and tasted the same with the exception of the lemon cake. Over all the desserts were too sweet. It was hard to taste anything but bland white sugar. My party was sitting upstairs and were were only checked on once in the hour we were there. When I got the bill we waited more than 10 minutes for the waitress to comeback to collect payment, but she did not return and eventually we took the payment to the register downstairs. Overall, it was a sad high tea for I and my partners goodbye to Scotland meal.

We had a lovely afternoon tea in this lovely hidden spot yesterday to celebrate my daughters birthday. I had to change the numbers 24 hours before and it was no trouble the staff are friendly helpful and provided excellent service. They also dealt with other visitors who had issues ( they themselves had caused) very well and professionally. The food was lovely and I am still drooling remembering this today! Really enjoyable and I have recommended to many friends and colleagues with a return journey planned soon .
