This is in a very pretty village setting, quite classy with proper tea pots and china cups, scrumptious cakes, sandwiches, scones and soup - all 100% homemade and good value. Particularly recommended is the magnificant gooey chocolate cake ! Seating is mainly out in the Vicarage garden, but with several covered or enclosed areas. Very pleasant atmosphere and with Sunday papers to read, you could sit there all day. Lucy's is located on the road from Rolleston towards Fiskerton, near the historic town of Newark in Nottinghamshire. Open Saturdays, Sundays & Bank holidays in the summer only.

Lovely, peaceful place with great tea and food

We've been to Lucy's three times now and each time has been even better than the last. The tea is served in lovely china, and the sandwiches are great. I love the home-made cakes, they're always fresh and served with fruit; and all of the cakes I've had have tasted wonderful. The home-made jams and... read more

Great stop off with my dad on our bike ride. Sat in the sunny garden for coffee and cake. Lovely place, lovely food and lovely owners, who couldn't do enough for us and my Mum and boyfriend when they arrived by car. Great hidden secret that I can't recommend enough,

We stopped here for tea and pudding after a walk. We sat outside and everything was simply splendid. The tea was served in proper china and tea cups, and the trifle was brilliant! Nice big garden and very friendly service.

I have visited Lucy's Vicarage Tearooms on a number of different occasions and each time it has been brilliant due to the food, peaceful location and friendly nature of the staff, which makes it that extra bit special! I have tried lots of different things on the menu, including cakes, scones and teas - orange blossom tea seems to have... More

Last few days of opening for the season so maybe slowing down. Had to beat a hasty retreat to the covered area which had, disappointingly, plastic table cloths. No warmth to this area. Some soft furnishings and a flower or two on the table would have made it more welcoming. Tea served in lovely China. Toasted brie sandwich was mediocre!... More

The service was excellent, the food was tasty, we had tea served how it should be and not in a mug. The only thing that was a thumbs down was the room in which we sat , was like a sunday school room, just needs some tweeks. (sorry)

Lucy's tea room is a very special place , a hidden gem in the Nottinghamshire countryside. In the sunshine you can enjoy the lovely garden and in less clement weather the converted barn/ coach house is very pretty all decorated in quirky traditional styling with a strong Cath Kidston influence. The food is delicious all extremely fresh and beautifully presented... More
