A pretty little café with lovely food for reasonable prices. We had lunch there and then came back for a cream tea later on. It's well situated too, being so close to the Abbey entrance.

A beautiful quaint little tea room near Glastonbury Abbey, very generous portions - never seen so much clotted cream!! The selection of homemade cakes looked delicious! We had the afternoon tea and left stuffed! Staff were very friendly too

After visiting Glastonbury Abbey, we took tea at the tea room, which is almost across the road. The tea and sandwiches were superb, very traditionally English, and the décor was exactly what you would expect from a sweet, old-fashioned tearoom. Not a lot of patrons there when we went, which was good, in our opinion. But those who came in,... More

Opposite the Abbey car park, this is as Tea Rooms should all be. Lovely food and lovely people, we pop in each time we're in town.

This is an 'old fashioned' tearoom. But well worth a visit. Loads of character. The food was wonderful and very reasonably proiced. A very relaxing place for lunch.

Wonderful toasted cheese sandwich. I had one three years ago and fantasized about it until I had another one on a recent visit. It did not disappoint! Lovely teas and scones with clotted cream.

I came across this tea rooms on a trip to Glastonbury. I wanted to stop for a bite to eat. I walked in and there was an awkward atmosphere. I sat down at a table and I was horrified to find a dirty napkin in front of me. What looked like snot on a tissue. I ordered a jacket potato,... More

I visited with daughter and grandson, we were so impressed with our mid morning coffee and homemade cake that we went back for lunch. Love the Olde English tea shop feel. Proper china, homemade well cooked food, not a plastic pot in sight ! Lovely staff who made a real effort to engage with us which my grandson loved.

Had afternoon tea here with friends. Our waitress could not have been more helpful. The surroundings were twee and quaint - as you would expect in a quintessential English tearoom. The sandwiches, scones and cakes were delicious. Loved the pretty crockery. Recommend a visit.
