Description: A 1940s themed Tea Room in Stratford-Upon-Avon. Come and join us in the 1940s and experience gorgeous loose leaf teas or a lovely cup of coffee accompanied by sandwiches on locally baked bread or try a cake or scone made daily on the premises by one of our bakers. No packet mixes or frozen products here. We also offer a gluten free cake each day and will do our best to help any other allergies too. The Fourteas is an experience not to be missed. The Fourteas has won the 2012 TouchFM Pride of Stratford Awards Town Outlet of the Year and has been selected by Jamie Oliver for his best 1000 Places To Eat In Britain app. We have recently moved to larger premises, but we are still only operating from one shop with no plans to expand to a chain yet!

Loved the idea of the Fourtea's most of it was all old style and very popular we went to go in but it was full, downside was the prices but it is right in the centre of Stratford

We were greeted by a friendly receptionist and despite the busyness of the day, we had a table very soon. This tea room is forties themed and boy, have they gone for it! The waitresses wore wartime costume as did the other serving staff and the receptionist. The crockery is all vintage, or looks it, and the wall decor is... More

This place has it exactly right! You must visit! Really good atmosphere, fantastic service and the best cup of tea I've had for a long time! If you are visiting Stratford from overseas this place represents the best of British! Has inside and outside seating for whatever the weather throws at you, all the waiters and waitresses dress in period... More

We stopped here for a cup of tea and cake one afternoon and enjoyed it so much we went back the next day for afternoon tea! The 40's theme is fantastic and really transports you back in time. Make sure you go upstairs as this is really special, it is a shame the staff don't offer upstairs or tell you... More

Quirky tearoom with a 1940's theme. Staff are dressed in period uniforms and 40's music plays whilst you dine. The staff were all very helpful and attentive and there was a nice atmosphere inside. We decided to sit outside but moved back in as there was no atmosphere or 40's theme in the courtyard area and there was a lot... More

This tea rooms provides a lovely step back in time with a 40's theme. The decor and music reflects the 40's, menu's are ration books, the waitresses are in the dress of the period, and the food and drinks lovely. Real pots of tea are served (with leaves) complete with timer for a perfect brew. We shall visit it again... More

I organised a hen do/birthday event for my best friend last weekend and had arranged to have a cream tea lunch at the Fourteas. Their communication beforehand had been excellent and they had provided us with the Spitfire Room upstairs to give us some privacy and space. This was all decked out in union jack bunting and paper chains and... More

Nice atmosphere with a 40`s feel (obviously) to the cafe. Coffee was nice, small but nice. You do get a free refill though so no complaints. However, I had the most pathetic sausage sandwich with tiny sausages and only a couple of them! Not cheap either, very 40`s as it gave a rationed feel to the meal! several people heard... More

We came here as a family (12 of us) for a birthday celebration for both of my grandparents and I. Staff were very friendly and even sang happy birthday to us whilst bringing out our afternoon tea complete with a candle in our cupcake. The food was lovely, great sandwiches, and just enough. However I would recommend that they make... More

Took my son here for a cake and drink in the afternoon after school.He thoroughly enjoyed as he had been learning about the war at school. The atmosphere was good with the waitresses in old style dress and the menus were ration books. The tea was made with loose tea and came out with an egg timer to make sure... More
