We had a lovely late lunch here with my family. Two of us had a cream tea tower, which was gorgeous and my mum and dad had an afternoon tea - both traditional dishes but served on quirky cake stands and all freshly made when we arrived. It was busy in there but they were very friendly and attentive. The babycham in a teacup was a welcomed comedy twist to the 'bubbly'! Bought some great classic books from downstairs and a wedding outfit for my best friends wedding this summer! This place has a great atmosphere - very relaxed, friendly and you could happily go in on your own for a pot of tea. It's not mainstream, it's not costa cofee....but thats whats so good about it

Based on the vibrant and much-loved Cheltenham Road in Bristol, Cox & Baloney Vintage Boutique is dedicated to all aspects of vintage and contemporary design.
Full to the brim with vintage-inspired gems and treasure, our hand-picked stock features clothing, re-worked furniture, home ware and crockery – everything you could possible need for creating a truly vintage lifestyle.
Alongside our vintage boutique sits the Cox & Baloney Tea Room, famous for its generous cream tea towers and delicious afternoon teas.
Inspired by classic teashop fare, our menu boasts a range of true English classics, featuring everything from mature cheeses and roasted meats, to handmade pork pies and homemade pickles.
Then there’s the tea – of course… As well as the loose tea available at our boutique, there’s a wide selection of loose leaf available for you to enjoy at the tearoom – from English Breakfast and Lapsand Souchong to Early Grey and Peach & White Apricot.
If you’re after a stylish, vintage space to host an event, workshop or class, our tearooms could be the perfect choice.
With a number of private sections, you can independently hire one or more areas of the tea rooms. Whether you simply want our private party room or the entire tearoom, we promise to cater directly to the needs of you and your guests.
Because the combination of vintage boutique and tea room has proved so popular, it is important to book in advance to avoid disappointment – you won’t regret it!

Recently visited Cox and Baloney for a second time using a groupon offer. Very disappointed! The offer was supposed to be 67% off the usual price for a vintage afternoon tea which was supposed to include champagne, a range of cakes, unlimited tea/coffee and sandwiches. The champagne never materialised, the cakes were very frugal in portion and the tea was one pot with no more offered. The sandwiches were very nice though. The price on the menu board for what we were given on the day was the exact price of our "special" offer- so nothing special about that! The staff were ok but again nothing special. Last time we went there the guy who served us was a lot more warm and friendly. The two ladies who were there the day we went barely managed a smile between them. The shop was disappointing too- many "vintage" clothes which looked as if they had been bought for £2 a piece in the charity shops, then price marked up to £50-60 each! I don't think I would have bought anything if they had been £2 each! It's a real shame as it could have been so much nicer.
Cox and Baloney have really come into their own this year. Their array of beautiful vintage clothing just keeps getting better and the books for sale are true classics. Since opening their own cafe next door a few months ago, the shop really thrives and you get the impression that the staff really love what they do.
Run some of the friendliest staff, its a pleasure going into this boutique. I go on a Saturday usually to browse around the men's clothes bit downstairs. You can then grab a cup of tea upstairs while perusing the books. Its brilliant. I wish more shops were like this.
Cox and Baloney used to be in the old Woolies indoor market on Whiteladies Road but last year moved to a shop on Cheltenham Road. It has since then doubled in size and expanded to include not only affordable vintage clothes but books, tea and cakes and craft workshops, including knitting and furniture reclamation.
