We stopped for lunch en route to Hopton. We were shown straight to a table, and although we had to wait a little for our food, we enjoyed a very tasty, obviously "home made" lasagne. Pretty little tearoom. Quite traditional, and our only criticism is the tea being rather weak. Would call again.

I have to point out that I love quirky little tea rooms and love finding little gems to visit, and , having recently visited what I can only describe as one of the worst tea rooms I have ever come across not only with quality of produce but with ill mannered owners who need to brush up on customer service...

We have passed this tea room many times over the last few years but have been put off trying it due to some of the reviews on this site. Finally we decided to go in and make our own mind up and I'm so glad we did. We were greeted on arrival by a friendly lady and shown to a... More

Despite some poor reviews, we visited the Copper Kettle & really enjoyed it. Nice welcome on arrival & great scones with homemade lemon curd, delicious!

We have passed the tearooms many times travelling back and forth to Shrewsbury and finally thought we'd drop in and give it a try. I should have checked the reviews first and saved us the disappointment. Friendly enough, and reasonably nice inside, but the drinks were very ordinary and the cream teas very overpriced. Two floury scones, a bit of... More

We called in for a cup of tea on our way back home to South Wales; it was about the halfway mark of our journey. I've always wanted to call in here, from the outside it looks very inviting indeed. It just shows how first impressions can be completely wrong. We were seated in the restaurant when we first went... More

Wouldn't allow a group of motorcyclist in even though they were empty. What is the matter with these people? Most were either retired or business people. I'm afraid that they have shot themselves in the foot, Because word of mouth and recommendations go a long way in business, and there are 1000s on bikers in the country. This is supposed... More

This Tea room turned us away, we might be motorcyclists We are but there is nothing wrong with us and our money is as good as anybody elses. A woman came out and told us they were full, this was a blatant lie, I looked in the window and there was no one in there at all. The car park... More
