Tea room exploration : Remember When Wirral.

64 Victoria Parade, New Brighton, Wirral, CH45 2PH. Open Mon – Sun 10am – 4:30pm.

A quaint tea room with a very vintage feel inside, serving up plenty of home-made treats, with a side serving of nostalgia – right down to the vintage tea wares! Just a stones throw away from the New Brighton seafront, where better to take in a cuppa after a stroll along the promenade!

Remember When, certainly does vintage with style, every bit of décor around the tea room is vintage – from the table decorations, to the tea wares, and plenty of picturesque finds on the walls. If it's a journey back in time that you fancy, or just a bit of nostalgia, it's the perfect setting to take in a spot of tea in style.

The vintage theme to the tea room is certainly what drew me in – it's actually been on my 'must visit' list for some time now, so a day trip to New Brighton was certainly overdue! Just a short walk away from the seafront, you can't miss it, located on Victoria Parade, just past New Brighton's Floral Pavilion – the arched windows, and vintage décor will certainly draw you in.

Of course, tea is what they do best, as a vintage tea room you can find plenty of options to tuck into, whether you fancy an afternoon tea, or a brew. Serving up a lovely selection of treats, with plenty of home-made cakes and sweet treats to tempt. They even cater for various food intolerance's and allergies – which is what drew me to visiting this lovely place!

On my visit, there was a scrumptious selection of freshly baked goods to choose from, with a few gluten free options included. If it's a slice of sponge cake, a cream scone, or a sweet meringue that draws you in, you'll be spoilt for choice. I opted for a gluten free scone – with my gluten and lactose intolerance being happily catered for with a couple of choices to tuck into.

It's been a loooong while since I've had a scone, so this was a bit of a treat. I had some dairy free margarine and some strawberry jam to go with the scone, making for a deliciously sweet treat – if somewhat messy, but still very scrumptious!

To accompany my scone I had a pot of tea, they offer a range of lovely loose leaf blends in store, served up in vintage style in a sweet little tea pot with a strainer – really completing the experience in style!

Certainly a lovely tea room, perfect to visit if you love vintage style. The location couldn't be better – with nearby parking at Fort Perch rock, why not stop off for a cuppa and cake after a wander along the sea front!
