Maddocks' Tea Room is now closed. We would like to thank visitors for their custom, support and kind words over the last 6 years. We will treasure many happy moments spent in the Tea Room with our customers. We are looking forward to our retirement together. Maddocks' Tea Room on the Gower Peninsula. We are all about using the best quality ingredients and wherever possible local produce. All items are homemade and freshly prepared on our premises. We offer warm friendly service and traditionally cooked cakes, pastries, breakfasts, luncheon items and afternoon teas. Maddocks' Tea Room is the perfect place on Gower to enjoy a hearty meal or delicious cakes with quality leaf teas and freshly ground coffees. Many customers stock up on a favourite cake or sandwich item before setting out on a lengthy coastal ramble along the cliffs to one of the nearby sandy beaches including Three Cliffs bay or to relax and 'refuel' for their journey home.

All the food looked delicious and the staff were very friendly. Homemade cakes etc. We had to leave room for a slice of cheesecake which was so light and scrumptious. Well worth a visit.

The cakes and pastries look amazing. My tea was served in one of those posh Jing teapots plus an extra jug of water and milk in a nifty little bottle. Staff polite and very friendly.Love it.

Have been to this Tea Room on 2 separate occasions in the last few weeks, to find staff ignorant, rude and suffering from snobbery. On the second attempt we just walked out after being ignored AGAIN! On first appearance the desserts you see when you walk in look outstanding, but they couldn't even entice me to tolerate such bad service.

We regularly visit this little gem on the Gower when we are visiting the area. The quiche and salad is amazing, the pastry crisp. My husband takes home their tasty welsh cakes so he has a taste of Wales in London ,his favourite being Welsh whisky flavour. Everything is home made,the display of cakes and puddings is incredible!!

Had afternoon tea, staff could not do enough for us and the tea was outstanding everything was fresh and the cakes home made, and beautifully presented, the food being served to the other customers also looked lovely. The premises are spotlessly clean, would highly recommend maddocks and i am looking forward to a repeat visit.
