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... read more

We visited the tea rooms for an afternoon tea deal from Groupon. Pleasant welcome and pretty, interesting surroundings. The quantity of food served was sufficient but the quality was varied. We could not fault the cakes, they were all delicious and the service was good. However, the sandwiches need a lot of improvement with presentation and content. They just seemed... More

We called in here by a (very lucky) accident, thinking purely in terms of a coffee, but the menu made the idea of a snack seem attractive. We just can't understand why this place hasn't won a higher ranking - the whole place would fit the image of stereotypical English tearoom like a glove. Comfortable chairs, spankingly clean table-cloths, heavy... More

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 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...

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
