After searching l came up with these tea rooms,originally listed under top ten s.w. tea rooms! On telephoning to book l was assured we wouldn't be rushed and my request for sandwich fillings was...

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

We recently visited the tea rooms and found that it is under new ownership. They have dropped the prices made the portions bigger from the last owners and have a much better menu. 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

I have read the recent reveiws since new ownership, and wonder if they went the the same Tea Rooms as we did, or perhaps they just like to make insulting reveiws for the fun of it! We recieved a warm welcome from the start and the menu is more varied than it used to be, the soups are now 'homemade'... More

I had lunch here recently and was disappointed that it wasn't a better experience. The new owner is very friendly, but the front room where I sat was rather chilly and the food could have been better. Maybe they need to cut back on the number of items on the menu and concentrate on making what they offer as perfect... More

Another place I have found that has some Gluten Free items on the menu. The following poem is on their website and describes it exactly:- Minsturs Poem The atmosphere is sublime, For I have passed back in time, Surrounded by glamour and glitz. As I quietly sip in a china cup an Earl Grey, So life’s worries and cares pass... More
