Heard the owner admitting to another customer she couldn't be bothered making any scones that morning (it's a tea rooms!), then when someone else came in and asked for scones she declared that she had been so busy she had run out! The crazy lady spent much of her time berating another,older lady who was serving (her mum maybe?) about... More

Quirky little tea shop that is living in the past but with some good food. Went in just for a lunch time sandwich. The sandwiches were very generously filled and came with a side salad which was possibly one of the most generous we have ever had. Tea was good and the service fine. The eccentric lady made it all... More

Excellent breakfast and coffee set in a comforting and rustic cafe in the centre of Leominster! Great start to a Friday! Thanks Caroline, will be back soon no doubt!

Very bizarre. Tried to order a couple of traditional english breakfasts - the lady serving 'educated' me quite forcefully that she was not willing to cook sausages as they take too long and she does not offer fried food (I was only attempting to order off the dirty menu she had given me). I was not entirely sure what I... More

Whilst visiting Leominster I found a small family run cafe. I entered to premise and had a very warm welcome from the hostess. Looking through the menu it seemed to cater for all types, with a great range of hot meal, sandwiches, cakes etc, Everything you would want from a cafe. I went for the beef stew with a baked...

Wandering around Leominster on a cold grey Saturday, we were in need of sustenance and found ourselves outside the Emporium. A mix of olde style tea rooms and gift shop, we were greeted by a friendly lady who gave us the menu, took our drinks order and went off to resolve a 'matter' with another lady (both out of our...

I went in the Emporium Tea Rooms on a grey midweek lunchtime as the menu in the window looked OK. Ordered pork cooked in cider. Took 20 mins to arrive and was basically a dollop of pork casserole on top of a terminally burnt baked potato. I have enclosed a photo which while not very clear does show the burned... More

Unfortunately we didn't read the reviews before we visited! Looking in through the window this cafe looked quite appealing but as soon as we walked in we realised we'd made a mistake. The owner was having a very loud conversation with another customer to the point we couldn't hear our own conversation. The scone was re-heated in the microwave -... More

My ham, cream cheese and tomato sandwich was very well presented and tasted great. The staff were polite and friendly but not too overbearing, which can happen in small tearooms. Really enjoyed my visit.
