Cafe, 'biscuit boutique' and icing school run by hand-iced biscuit company Biscuiteers. As well as selling a wide range of biscuits, cupcakes, macaroons and drinks, Biscuiteers hosts a drop-in icing cafe where you can have a go at decorating your own biscuits to take home with you, or send to a friend as an edible gift. There are also formal icing workshops for picking up new skills and the boutique can be hired for private icing parties for hen dos, birthdays or children's parties.

We booked the afternoon tea this weekend and it was the Christmas afternoon tea, I had such high hopes for this because I have always loved the biscuits in the past. When we arrived (having never been to the boutique and only ordered online) I was surprised to find that the tables for afternoon tea were squashed in the corner and not really a space equipt for people sitting at tables and eating, we had to squeeze past people and one man who was on the table next to us had to squeeze onto the bench with the two other people he was with, rather than sit on the chair on the opposite side of the table because there was then no room to get to our table to serve us. We were then given the drinks menu and told the prosecco had run out, so we ordered our tea which really didn't have a huge amount of flavour. Shortly our biscuits and cakes arrived and we were told our scones were not ready so they gave us 2 mince pies while we waited for them (there were 3 of us.) We waited another 15 minutes for the scones and whilst they were very warm when they came out, I don't think they were cooked properly as they were quite doughy. So we proceeded to eat the cakes and biscuits with the tea. I've never been to an afternoon tea that didn't have sandwiches (we did read the menu before which didn't state they had sandwiches) but we found that all of that sweetness without anything savoury was just a little too much and got quite sickly, so we asked for the rest of what we couldn't eat to be boxed up. I wasn't overly impressed with the cakes and biscuits, I wouldn't exactly say they were delicious and I expected so much more from them. There was very little about the tea that was festive and was disappointed by this also. Being a big fan of afternoon tea and have visited many across London, this was one of the most disappointing sadly and wouldn't go back.

I ordered a biscuit as a gift and while it looked amazing (they all look so good) it did not taste good. It was a bit too hard to bite so we didn’t eat it.

Photo attached - it was supposed to be like the Wreck It Ralph medal cookie. It looked so good but was not edible.


I took my best friends here for one of their birthdays for an DIY icing. It was so much fun, we felt like kids again, it turned out that we were the only ones in the store so we had it all to ourselves. The store is so wonderfully decorated with vibrant fun colours everywhere and the biscuits are delicious. 

For £15 the DIY icing you get to choose 3 biscuits and ice them however you please, the icing colours are whatever the in-store experts have been using. We got a menu of snacks and drinks to choose from (at an additional cost), the afternoon tea looks amazing so I think we'll be making another trip very soon. It was a really fun and different way to spend a Sunday morning, I absolutely recommend it!

Utterly obsessed with Biscuiteers and everyone I introduce them to also feels the same way. Great presents for the men in our lives when flowers won't do. I've been on a bit of a sending rampage over the past week. Father's Day biscuit tin - cricket themed - tick, friend's new job - tick, sick brother in law - tick. They've thought of every reason you might want to send a biscuit! Highly recommend as a gift option. 


LOVE Biscuiteers! I buy them for every and any occasion, if only they had a broader collection of tins. I would love to see a penguin and polar bear tin or even a more detailed iced Christmas tin?


Really fun, well designed biscuits. Obviously made by really talented artists. Make great gifts for every holiday and a really unique idea rather than sending flowers or searching for relative presents!

Gifts for those that have everything galore. Beautiful hand crafted tins of biscuits in cute themes. Totally twee but perfectly executed.


The cafe does lots of workshops and events for groups which are well worth attending for tamer hen do's, birthdays with family groups and general good old fashioned funtimes.


Lovely staff and team.
