    Would not take a booking for lunch over the phone. Had to book online. And submit my bank card details. Did not like this one bit. Again it’s the paying customer having to do a task for the business. Arrived at the correct time - tables all taken. Had to wait. Poor business model. Not for Bath people just tourists. Won’t be returning.

    I booked this for my friend's 50th after the Bath Spa as right round the corner. It was lovely, great staff, great decor and the food was great too. They asked if any food intolances and dislikes, which was attentive. We all had mocktails and the tea was nice with afternoon tea. The birthday girl had a processco on the house as a treat which was nice of them. Definitely would go again and recommend to my friends.

    This is a cute tea shop. We made a reservation but instead of seating us in the main area, they put us in the basement room, alone, next to the toilets. The only place we could have gone was outside on the sidewalk in the middle of the street. I was just surprised that having taken the time to make a reservation, we did not get better seating.

    Booked for my friends hen party, and will definitely be back to sweet little things, plenty of food, tea, Prosecco and gin, gorgeous decor, friendly staff. My only complaint is that we pre paid and then the bill got brought to the table and I had to show the confirmation email for proof of payment as it wasn’t on the system. The girl was really good about it though.

    We had afternoon tea at 3pm on a Wednesday. The food was excellent ~ including two vegetarian teas. The service was prompt and very friendly. Definitely a better experience than The Ivy (Cheltenham and Bristol). Our only criticism was the music which we found quite intrusive.

    Lovely little spot, staff all v attentive. Dog friendly which we appreciated! Food was fabulous - they were out of biscoff milkshake which 2/4 of us were going to have and the service was a little slow (appreciate they were busy) but other than that would definitely recommend. Gorgeous interiors too.

    Booked afternoon tea which was made fresh. Minor niggle-no butter on ham sandwich and mini scone rather than full size but overall a good experience for a girlie catch up.

    A lovely little cafe. The service was a little slow as we repeatedly asked for water and although there were plenty of staff they seemed to be too busy chatting to each other. Though they also brought us extra toast for no charge when we said we were a little disappointed in the serving size.

    Very pretty setting and welcoming and friendly staff- service was however incredibly slow, we waited 45 minutes for afternoon tea and the table next to us were waiting an hour for two items from the brunch menu- it wasn’t particularly busy. Afternoon tea is not worth the money, you get charged for tea refills and the sandwiches were dry as if they’d been premade a long time before (which makes the long wait unusual!) with very little filling- the slice of cheese could have only been a millimetre thick and was rock hard, and way too much mustard in the ham sandwich made it inedible. Scones and the red velvet cake were lovely, the Victoria sponge again was very dry. Would be worthwhile with some easy improvements to the food, as the staff and the atmosphere are great.

    The staff were rude. We were waiting at the door whilst one went to find our table, she didn't come back. Another member of staff told us where it was in an abrupt manner as if we should know. Very little food for the money, I think they may have forgotten some of our cakes

    Booked two days in advance with some dietary requirements, was given wrong afternoon tea then had to wait 45mins and then chase them up. Scones were rock solid...but they did give us more and some money off bill. Probably wouldn't return. Food was OK.

    Great friendly service. Lovely surroundings. Only disappointment was when I received a Victoria sponge as one of my afternoon tea selections, expected something a little bit more interesting. The cost of an adults afternoon tea is a little expensive. My 12yr old daughter loved her child’s afternoon tea.

    Waited over 1hr30 for the afternoon tea to arrive which was pre-booked ahead of time. Then there wasn’t enough scones for all of us so we had to wait a further 10 minutes for these to arrive at our table. The scones were hard and tasteless and the cake was horrible. The consistency and taste was just awful, in-fact the worst I’ve ever tasted. I wouldn’t recommend Sweet Little Things to anyone, a real shame.

    With a few tweaks this place could be lovely. Take out a table so customers don't have to be squashed in next to pushchairs or suitcases. It is unfair to expect people to sit on top of other people's belongings. Open some windows for ventilation instead of the door so the temperature is comfortable and people don't have to sit in coats or feel cold. Turn the music down and consider tunes that are more suitable to the environment rather than cheesy pop music. Taste test food and check temperatures of hot food. Our party had a lukewarm, but very tasty jacket, a very stale and hard vegan scone and stale, dense vegan cakes. Also, if I'm having an afternoon tea I'd like my tea at the same time as my food. The tea came out so early it was cold by the time my food arrived. The afternoon tea cost also needs to be reviewed. Prices are £9 higher than my local, who provide a lot more quality food and tea in a more welcoming environment. We also didn't appreciate an automatic service charge for a party of 2. The vegan sandwich fillings were lovely but it was let down by so many issues. All in all, as it was a special day, the whole experience was extremely disappointing

    I brought my wife for her birthday and I had seen the afternoon teas online, we travelled 3.10hours there and back but it looked worth the drive. I watched a few people have the afternoon tea at the table and a couple opposite had a tier stand each. There was 3 of us and it was all crammed onto one tier which In all honesty didn’t look worth £75. My wife even said I hope you haven’t paid all that for this. The total bill came to just over £80 with a service charge. We waited 50 minutes for the afternoon tea to arrive which was apologised for and we had free tea. But for the value of money I wasn’t impressed. One scone, 2 little cakes and 4 small finger sandwiches at £25pp plus the service charge. Between the drive down, the wait for food to come and the quantity for the price I wouldn’t rush back. Staff friendly and visually pretty but very expensive for the one stand we had between 3 of us.

    Had a lovely time at my sisters baby shower. The food was delicious, even the vegan afternoon tea that my mum and nan had looked fab and they said it tasted amazing. All of the staff are polite and friendly. When we arrived there was a hen party in the same room which made it rather noisy but once they left it was easier to hear one another.

    I booked to have afternoon tea here for the 1st day of my sisters hen. We were going to be slightly late so I called to push our reservation back to which I had someone say that they couldn't as they were not busy and were closing early. I had this reservation prebooked for weeks so you could tell I was a little annoyed by this. A manager came on the phone after hearing what her employee was saying and said we could go whenever we could and it was ok. Already sceptical on still going because of the rudeness we still went as it was apart of the agenda. Staff were not particularly polite. The table we had reserved for us was dirty had to ask the waitress to clean twice for us. Food was not bad nothing to return for if I am honest. Such a shame as we were looking forward to this as it is a pretty looking place.

    I booked the Bottomless Brunch for myself and a friend, I had the full English and my friend had the avocado on toast (both were amazing). We then had the Nutella pancakes and the Biscoff ones, both were incredible. Our server Georgie was amazing and made sure that our glasses were never empty. Would 100% recommend.

    We were so disappointed in our first visit. When we arrived we were told to go downstairs to our table, we went down to a very noisy hot room and there were no empty tables, we started going back up and were told they have given our table to the wrong people and would move them, it was highly embarrassing. When we got our table there weren’t enough chairs for us all and no others could be found. The food arrived before the drinks and we had to ask twice for a cake that was ordered and not brought over. Such a disappointment, especially as it was for a birthday treat for a family member. Most certainly won’t be returning and will not be recommending to anyone.

    We had a pleasant enough afternoon but received a lacklustre greeting and no sense of the staff trying to make it a special event for us or anyone else. There were wilted salad leaves beside the sandwiches, although the sandwiches themselves were tasty and the scone was fresh and warm.

    Amazing little place. We had the bottomless brunch and have to say it was the best I’ve ever had, the meal and pancakes were fantastic and didn’t have to ask for another glass of drink as the staff were on the ball (not like other BB’s I have had). My daughter who was 21 had a great time. Planning my next visit 😀
