My suggestion- keep well away from here. Castleton is a lovely village and everywhere seemed to be of a good standard except the Hidden Tearoom- oh that it has remained hidden but we were looking for ice creams and cream teas and he seemed to be offering both at a reasonable rate. We ate outside so didn't have to suffer... More

We visited this tearoom on Saturday 12th July during a family weekend to celebrate my brother's50th birthday. The owner managed to reduce one of our young people to tears with his 'humour' which resulted in her and her boyfriend leaving us and put a HUGE dampener on our wonderful afternoon. We had already placed an order for cream teas so... More

Tea rooms very run down. Dirty with no toilet facilities. We decided not to eat as the place as it was so disgusting. Intimidating man, who looked dirty, became nasty on us trying to leave!

We too went here, we're told that we could not have coffee on its own so we ordered the proffered scones, and they were delicious.... Lovely circus models moving to keep the kids entertained, owner telling us stories of when mark Benton and robson green were filming local and eating there, was a strange bloke admittedly, but not rude just...

Stay well away from this place, the owner doesn't deserve any business what so ever, we went in and asked for a drink of tea and a glass of coke, he was very abrupt with an attitude as he said "we only do tea and scone and not tea on its own" I replied well I only want a drink... More

Called in after a walk to the caverns. We asked for a table for two the owner said do you want tea and scones I said we only wanted coffee he said we do not do just coffee, so we left. We went past the place a few times and it was never full. The owner and the tea rooms... More

We were a party of 4, not such regular visitors to Castleton these days, but we do visit the area at least 4 or 5 times a year, sometimes more. I've spent a lot of hours in Castleton and being a 'centre' for the area I've found most of the cafes, Pubs and shops to be some of the best,... More

We had a lovely day out around Castleton on Bank Holiday Monday and enjoyed a stroll around the back lanes. I spotted this tea room from a distance and thought ooh a lovely little cafe, let's stop, but as we got closer I realised that the cafe actually looked very scruffy and run down. There were a number of outside... More

Been quite a few times to the Hidden Tea Room, owner is a one of a kind and can be misinterpreted as rude if you yourself do not have a sense of humour. I went there with my 3 year old Nephew and he was in awe at the model circus and also the swords the owner allowed him to... More

Had a tea for two and four scones. Was very good value and the homemade jam was delicious. My wife and puppy were very content. Will return again.
