We stopped by here on the way to the V Festival recently. My fiancee has her own catering business so is always interested in seeing how other businesses operate, giving them our custom. She particularly likes these quaint looking tea rooms and similar places. Outside the place is advertised as a tea room open until 4pm. We entered at around... More

On first impressions, the Briars Cottage Tea Rooms 'The Copper Kettle' is charming. It is small and quaint and looks rather inviting. The establishment looked very clean and tidy and, although the food seemed a tad expensive, that was not a problem. For a clean and comfortable establishment I expect to pay a little more and I have no problem... More

We've visited this traditional tea room several times and have come to know the owner and her food offerings quite well. I really don't understand the harsh criticism of some previous visitors. The building is an old cottage, with wobbly walls, floors and ceilings, full of character. Food is prepared on the premises and, although you might wait few minutes... More

We tried to visit a few days ago, and arrived at the 'team room' at 4pm, only to find it out it had just closed. How can a tea room close at 4pm, a popular time to have tea?? We visited again for morning coffee today. We had coffee and toasted tea bread for two. It was fine, but £12... More

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
