Welcome to Margaret's Tea Rooms


Welcome to Margaret's Tea Rooms

Located at the bottom of Lincoln’s historic Steep Hill, we offer the most unique selection of carefully crafted teas and cakes in the city. Our innovative infusions range from Sweet Shop to our signature blend Scotch Mist, and our freshly baked cakes include traditional classics and our unique Tutti Frutti and Kinder Egg cakes.

Talking of cakes, the proof is in the pudding and that’s probably why we’re ranked number one out of all coffee and tea shops in the city on Tripadvisor, as well as the fourth best place to eat in the whole city!

Experience Lincoln’s most tea-riffic experience for yourself – call us today to make your reservation.
