First established in Soho in 1926, Patisserie Valerie follows artisanal baking traditions brought to London by Belgian-born Madam Valerie, whose mission was to introduce continental patisserie to the English. Now boasting over 120 venues nationwide, the company adorns its cafes with the 1950s-inspired decor and serves up an array of freshly-made cakes, craft pastries, breakfasts, lunches, coffees and loose-leaf teas. Their specialities include meticulously-crafted croissants and viennoiseries, as well as homemade Italian-style gelato.
We went to Winchester & enjoyed a lovely afternoon tea for 4. The waitresses could not have been more friendly & topped up our tea & coffee when needed. Only downside was one of the ladies toilets was out of use, in a busy afternoon, drinking tea, not to be recommended.

Very tasty and had free refills, excellent val
Lovely service but stale & crusty sandwiches not fresh. Poor mini cake selection on top, the scones were warm but very small. Not worth the money paid even on a deal!
Had the high tea! Always excellent!
Excellent tea, went to the Winchester branch. Service excellent
Good service, was able to take as long as we liked.
