We visited after a long walk taking in Chesil Beach and had a lovely afternoon tea. The service was efficient and friendly. The cream tea was divine and the Dorset apple cake was generous and equally enjoyable, according to my husband. We sat in the pretty gardens in the lovely September sunshine while overlooking the Tithe Barn and St Catherine's... More

After a long walk with the dogs on a hot Sunday afternoon we came across this wonderful place. They welcomed us into their beautifully kept garden with stunning views. The owner apologised as they were very busy and would probably have to wait for 30mins to be served, altho we ordered our drinks straight away so it was no hardship... More

My wife and I spent the night here recently and were most impressed. Jonathan and Maureen and daughter Natasha left an indelible mark on us. Our first point of contact was Natasha who, although rather busy serving lunches, was most hospitable and giving of her time. These people know how to host. And they do it in a genuine and... More

Only stayed one night but very impressed by the welcome, the room and fabulous breakfast the next morning. Tea (and cake) on the lawn was excellent and with great views down to the sea and the tithe barn, and with children playing in the garden, this is as good as it gets. Highly recommended although the decorative style in the... More

We had lunch there today. Boys had cream tea and scones and a "pigs delight" (a gungy chocolate cake with side helping of cream) that they thoroughly enjoyed. We will definitely return when next passing through.

We found this place by accident. We were about to wander onto the main street at Abbotsbury but a sign in the corner of Rodden Row car park pointed towards this place. It was a lovely day and we sat in the large grassed patio area looking down on the gardens and over the rolling scenery of Dorset. The crab... More

An excellent and very generous cream tea which was reasonably priced. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. The setting was perfect. In a party of six, we arrived in the late afternoon and found it was only five minutes to closing time. We were made extremely welcome and were not hurried. Don't miss this.

Not our first visit and it certainly won't be our last! The location is stunning and the owners are charming and friendly. We visited on a beautifully hot and sunny day, Sunday 13th July, for lunch. It was busy but the service was very good and we weren't kept waiting for long for our delicious food! It was the nicest... More

Had a lovely lunch at the abbey house tea rooms! Beautiful gardens and friendly staff who made us feel welcome. My daughter had the lunch box which consisted of an egg sandwich, animal biscuits, skips, apple and a drink for around £4.50, I had a prawn sandwich and my partner a blt. My daughter said 'this is the best sandwich... More

Fantastic location and perfect in the garden. The owner moved a table for our party to be in the shade and was a brilliant host, with a witty and easy style that immediately made you feel at home and welcome. Just drinks and snacks even though it was really lunch time was fine and we were not made to feel... More
