Not that I am…ahem…addicted to rabbits, but they do seem to keep coming up in my life recently, HERE for example.
So when my friend Claire suggested I go to a new tea room that she had found, the next time I went shopping in Nottingham, she also mentioned a large white rabbit outside…I couldn’t resist!
White Rabbit Teahouse, is on Hounds Gate (near the main M&S) in Nottingham town centre.
Can you see the rabbit?
I was out shopping with my Mum, so technically I had been working hard, even if it was spending Tall Dad’s well-earned pennies. 😉
The White Rabbit Teahouse is one of those traditional tea houses, without any of the pomp and ceremony, it has a vibrant and friendly air.
It is delicate and vintage and just a little chintzy…perfect!
We decided to both go for the Free Range Egg Mayonnaise sandwiches on brown bread and a pot of tea for two, followed by cake. The service was fantastic, and host very helpful.
Everything was incredible tasty and fresh. I would highly recommend it as a resting place for a light lunch, or a ‘tea stop’ whilst shopping.
I thought the menu had just enough variety, plenty of vegetarian options too. It had a lots of different tea’s available as well as different styles of coffee. There was a specials board, updated daily with two variations to the menu. They also have a breakfast menu.
Even the salt and pepper pot was gorgeous!
You can hire the White Rabbit out for an intimate (18-20) private function or party (outside of opening hours) and they also provide outside catering. How cool would it be to host a Mad Hatters tea party here?
They also have a ‘Donate to the Teahouse’ idea which I love. You can send any unneeded teapots and teacups to them, and they promise to use them with love!
If you live in the area, or are visiting I wholeheartedly recommend you to visit The White Rabbit Teahouse, truly scrumptious!
