A great find

We are very pleased to have discovered this place. Gluten free options, very friendly service and child friendly. Our 15 month old particularly enjoyed having his own children's table and chairs to have his lunch, and made good use of the toys outside.

My friend and I were meeting in Newbury for lunch and I used Trip Advisor to research somewhere to go as last time we'd wandered aimlessly searching for somewhere nice. Well, we will wander aimlessly no more after eating here! The weather was lovely so we sat outside by the canal and decided to have the afternoon tea which we... More

On our way to Highclere Castle (which is nearby), we wanted to stop somewhere near Newbury for coffee. Googled and found this one. Wow - what a great location. unfortunately for us it was not a good weather day but if it had been we would have been able to sit outside and enjoy the boats passing by on the... More

Best avoided if you're particular about cleanliness. I was served a dirty cup and asked for it to be changed and received a dirty, cracked cup instead, When I pointed this out I was told it was old! Some cakes were on open view and so could be crawled on by flies, this is in the hottest part of the... More

Lovely homemade scones with jam & cream and a nice cup of tea. All served in a mish mash of China, which is acceptable at this cute, quirky and quaint little tea shop. Most people sit outside taking in the lovely setting of the canal with the swans gliding past..,

I have eaten here on several occasions, and the food is always excellent. Lovely tea served in pretty little tea cups, might not be for everyone, but always good. Staff helpful and friendly, and they have gluten free items too.

They serve great soup with a toasted sandwich and a nice selection of fresh cakes too. Tea is served in cute old fashioned tea pots and dainty saucers. Worth a visit on a sunny day or even when wet as cosy inside

I've been here a number of times for either lunch or a drink by the canal. Every time the staff have been friendly and the food very tasty (especially the cakes!). The inside is very quaint but quite small so I can imagine it will be a bit cosy if it rains. Outside it is lovely next to the canal... More

We stopped in Newbury for a quick coffee and stayed for an amazing breakfast, friendly tea shop in a beautiful setting. Staff were all helpful and special thanks to Lorain for the warm welcome we received.

On a wet, cold day, it was great to come in to such a warm place -- both the welcome and the temperature of the building. The food was really nice: homemade soup and a toasted sandwich (either half or whole) were tasty and well prepared. It's not often that a toasty has lots and lots of cheese in, but... More
