Lunch At Gillivon Tea Rooms, Belper

99-101 Bridge St, Belper DE56 1BA, UK
Being a Belper girl through-and-through means I'm a bit biased, but if I told you that Belper has a lovely selection of independent cafes, tea rooms and restaurants, you'd be hard pushed to argue with me. Gillivon Tea Rooms is the newest to the bunch, only opening last year.

Let's talk about the decor...


Dainty, flowery wallpaper adorns the walls. You can definitely tell that it's a cafe by women, predominantly for women. (That's not to say that they're excluding men in any way, though!)

They have pretty fairy lights illuminating the window too. When you pass by, day or night, the lights are a pretty little beacon on an otherwise dark street dominated by takeaways, pubs, and traffic. It signifies how much of a little haven this tea rooms is from the hustle and bustle of Belper town centre.

We ventured to Gillivon on a Saturday lunchtime, so it was understandably busy. Whenever I've been past, it always seems to be full, so it's clearly a popular destination for lunch, brunch, or a coffee. (They even do a dainty afternoon tea!)

It's different to other cafes in Belper. The decor is more 'shabby-chic', for starters. It's situated on the busy A6, instead of being tucked away around King Street like most of the others. It feels more feminine, with the flowers, and floral wallpaper. It has a distinctly vintage touch, which makes it pretty unique in Belper. So, it really is a lovely place to visit.

The Food & Drink at Gillivon Tea Rooms


There are several lovely looking cakes firmly planted on the counter to catch your eye, and entice you to tuck into a slice with your coffee. My meal was lovely and filling, so there was no room left for cake when we visited, unfortunately!

All four of us chose the tuna salad with a cob. It also came with a side of ready salted crisps. And to drink? We all opted for a coffee of some description. I had a cappuccino and enjoyed it. I couldn't find any fault with the food or drink on offer, at all.

Seeing as Gillivon also offer afternoon tea, and champagne breakfasts, I'd love to go back and try them! And the cake too, but that goes without saying, right?
