Having just moved to the area we thought we'd give this a try for lunch. Very welcoming atmosphere with several different seating areas including outside. The table menu gives very basic information and we had to ask what the fruit teas and tarts were. The waitrose had to go and find out. No tarts but 3 fruit teas. The chalk... More

My husband and I have visited twice in the last month, we drank tea and ate cake relaxing on the cane settee looking out on the courtyard, my husband is disabled and walks with a stick, there was ample room for him to walk around and sit anywhere he liked, in fact while we were there a group of four...

I came here with a good friend of mine, despite her having a bad meal here before we decided to give it another go as her previous visit had only been 2 days after opening. The rooms are a little 'over quaint' but we appreciated having a choice of places to sit - we decided to sit outside which was... More

We popped in to the Minstur Interiours Courtyard Tea Rooms the other day for a coffee and cake. We were welcomed in and invited to sit anywhere in the three eating areas. We chose to sit outside as it was a glorious day. The coffees arrived with the excellent home made Coffee and Walnut cake. The decor is what you... More

The new owners and staff at Minsturs are friendly, attentive and cook scrumptious food at very reasonable prices. I will be visiting again very soon. A perfect venue for tea, lunch and dinner in relaxing settings with friends. A credit to the town.

I have stopped here several times as I am a local to Sturminster. New ownership has opened up this wonderful tearooms and made it more welcoming and definitely comfortable for the solo customer. Tea served in small china cups and a very vintage feel to the surroundings. Friendly staff and a good experience all round. Will definitely try snacks and... More

I have been here before and thought it wasn't anything special, but decided to visit again having seen it was under new ownership. It was a brilliant change, with more seating and more space it didn't feel so cramped. The staff were excellent and very helpful, and the food was so much better now that it is all home made... More

They now also do take aways which was fantastic for our drive back home. The owner knew the answers to all questions that we through at her... More

I visited here before and now under the new owner, and have to say 'what a difference'. It now is a place I will frequent regularly. Where as before the prices where so high, the food not even home made, and the owner himself being rather rude and pretentious. I now walk in to a lovely atmosphere where the staff... More
