Sweet little Pavillion Tea Room is nestled around a curve in Crow road in Glasgow. The exterior is decorated almost like an old fashioned British cottage, with white walls and black frames around the windows. When my mother and I entered, we bought a cup of tea, which was served in a pretty and dainty matching crockery set.
We spoke to the two ladies running the shop, and we were interested to learn that they were once flight attendants with British Airways and had retired to set up this lovely little cafe. I thought that was such a nice way to enter a more peaceful livelihood, and we also learned that they had flown to the country we had previously lived – Zambia – and even stayed in one or two hotels there. This was really nice, as it was a little reminder that the world can be quite small after all.
The venue itself is utterly lovely, almost like being at a grandmother’s house, or an aunt’s house. The decor is feminine and delicate, but also mature and sophisticated. It has pretty colour schemes, long couch benches, checked cushions, elegant brick-style wallpaper, soft lights and a little rose in the centre of the tables.
The tea was lovely, and the overall experience of this place was wonderful. Would definitely return there in the future.
