A great breakfast!

We were staying in Ashford in the Water recently and found this great little place that's sells lovely ice cream (our 1st visit) and even better breakfasts (our 2nd)! We had a fabulous breakfast served by very friendly and enthusiastic people who obviously take a lot of pride in their business. It... read more

Sadly this little tearoom didn't live up to our expectation. Coffee was OK but when you pay over £10 for 2 coffees and 2 cakes, you don't expect dry brownies! Decor needed attention, and they had obviously had a bad water leak through the ceiling. Loo door had a gap through which you could see into the kitchen whilst sitting!... More

Stopped-off here with my wife for a quick lunch whilst away on holiday. Staff were friendly, polite and pleasant. Food was tasty and nicely presented (cheese and onion toasted ciabatta and tuna mayo sandwich). Homemade cakes looked nice, but we didn't sample! Would recommend/go back.

Very last minute we booked at the Tea Room for a family get together on Mothers Day. It was delightful, I had the jacket potato with cheese and coleslaw, and could not fault it. The coleslaw was homemade, the potato was cooked perfectly and the side salad a good quality mix drizzled with balsamic. For desert I had gluten free... More

after a day travelling around the area it was great to find this little cafe in the beautiful village. Good menu, reasonable prices and efficient service. My sandwich was delivered as a salad but quickly corrected. Worth visiting.

I was introduced by a friend to this lovely place - it really is a fantastic mixture of quaint English tea room and modern, friendly service. The food is tasty, appealing and filling, and everyone is made to feel extremely welcome. An example of the flexibility of the place is the fact that, despite closing at 5pm normally, the proprietor... More

Decent coffee, lovely tiffin and they didn't mind our muddy walking boots. Bacon sarnies looked nice too.

We met our friends Angela and Andrew at Aisseford tea Rooms. We were late (don't ask!!) they already had a pot of tea and Pat and I had a coffee. We then all had lunch. I had a baked potato, Pat had a salad, Angela had crab cakes and Andrew had a paninis. All excellent meals, almost as good as... More

Came here one Sunday with family. Arrived about 3.30 and ordered a cream tea for 5, which was fine, but at 3.50 they started packing up around us and asked us to leave at 4.15, irrespective of whether we had finished. I do appreciate how hard waiting on staff work, but this did give the impression that customers seemed to... More

Pros: pretty decor, nice little 'garden annexe' for sitting in, good location for walks, hens in the garden, good range of tasty paninis, all being attached to a nice gift shop and holiday cottage. Cons: a larger range of vegetarian/vegan food would be appreciated.
