I'm going to Edinburgh in September with my dd, my mum and my aunty. I'd like to book somewhere nice but not to expensive for us to have afternoon tea while we are there. Any recommendations welcome.

The Signet Library is lovely. http://www.thesignetlibrary.co.uk/colonnades/

I also had a lovely afternoon tea at the G&V hotel on North Bridge.

Mimi's Bakehouse is lovely. I think there are 3 branches: down on the shore, Corstorphine and a little one on the Royal Mile. The one on the shore is my favouritesmile

Bon in Corstorphine or the Chocolate Station in Corstorphine are both good. In town, Tigerlily is nice.

The rose leaf pub in Leith has a mad hatters tea party theme. You can opt for cocktails instead of tea in your teapot grin
It's an odd mix of old mans pub and ladies tea room.
Here's the mad hatter info
