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

Popped in for coffee and a scone. Was a lovely and traditional tea room. The scone was beautiful but I have to fault one thing. The cream served with the scone was whipped cream instead of clotted cream which was a let down. All in all though well recommended very good value for money

Loved it here. Charming rooms and people, food all home made and we stayed over an hour to make room for scones with homemade lemon curd. Went away very happy.

We have been calling at this tea room for many years now during both the tenure of the present proprietor and the previous proprietor. There is no doubt that the standard of the food continues to be very good indeed - most if not all of it is prepared on the premises and it makes a welcome change from all... More

I recently enjoyed English afternoon tea with my boyfriend in this tearoom. The only vegetarian options for a round of sandwiches were cheese or egg. I chose cheese and my boyfriend ordered salmon. Other than sandwiches, you get a selection of three cakes and a scone with jam, margarine and cream and obviously tea for £7.50 each. My cheese sandwiches... More

Do not go in this 'tea room', if your just wanting tea or tea and a scone !! you are not made to feel welcome. The female, perhaps co owner, did not appear interested in our custom, as we were not buying a meal...but it is a 'Tearoom' after all !! and not the Ritz, which the female in question,... More

I've driven past many times and always thought it was not my kind of place. But the Royal Oak in Cardington wasn't serving lunch, I had three people who needed to be fed, so we came here. I'm so glad we did. First class sandwiches -- the 97 year old among us called hers the best toasted sandwich she had... More
