I visited with my sister for a little treat on the first day the children went back to school after the Summer holidays. We had the large farmhouse afternoon tea. Sandwiches, a huge slice of homemade cake and a lovely scone (we couldn't finish it all so took a doggy bag home!) Everything was so fresh and delicious. The staff... More

I am only giving this place an average review as the quality of the service seems to depend on when you go. I went Midweek at about 1030 with my young daughter. There was only 3 other tables occupied. The service was good and there was no problems with having my young daughter there. Tea cake and home made cup... More

We chose the tea room as we took our children with us and they both love it there, food is always fresh, staff are so polite, tea or coffee is very nice what more can I say other than we will be back, if you have not been then you are missing out.

Nice tea and great cup cakes. A little pricey for the cramped tearoom. Tables are near others so not good for a private or quiet natter. However the service was really good.

I visit the Parlour Tearooms several times a week for a takeaway lunch, which is freshly prepared at a very reasonable cost. I always enjoy calling in to see what's going on in this very successful, busy business - the ladies are always friendly and have time for a chat, and definitely know how to make a good cake! This...

We came here for some cake but were told that we wouldn't be able to take the cake away with us and that we had to sit down inside to eat it. Unfortunately it was full inside, so we had to wait 10 minutes to be served. When we went to pay, we found out why you required to sit... More

This was my first visit to the tearoom but I have driven past hundreds of time, thinking I should try it. Fantastic welcome, really friendly and fantastic cake. What more could you want? I sat outside, where my coffee and cake were brought to me. The lady who brought it asked if I would like the umbrella up, which was... More

Excellent food always. Visited many times. Love the extension giving everyone a bigger chance of booking. Best scones in Hampshire.

I have visited this cosy tearoom approximately 10 times now and always enjoy the experience (the cakes are delicious!). I have always booked in advance as I know it gets booked up very quickly. The past 2/3 times I have been it can take a while to get served, which can be a little frustrating (especially during a lunch breach... More
