Go for the chickens!

We had a quick drink in the garden on a sunny afternoon. The food looked ok but the entertainment was provided by the Silkie chickens roaming free in the garden! They were very comical.

What a shame to come to a tea room that cannot produce a decent scone! We called in yesterday Monday 27th July, after a day out in the Peaks. The cakes looked lovely ,so we debated on the choice of scones/cake with tea. There was plenty of tea , but the scones were small, tasteless, hard and doughy. The cake... More

As the only tea room in town, they really should be able to do better. Upon entering we were "greeted" by a waitress who looked up from her magazine to tell us to go through into the tea room. Orders had to be given - and paid for - at the counter where said waitress continued reading her magazine. The... More

Called in to Aisseford Tea Rooms earlier this month with my sister, had a great coffee, just how I like it not bitter like some tea rooms seem to serve. I also had a piece of date and walnut cake which was really nice, hoping to go back shortly for another slice!. The icing on the cake for me was... More

It started with afternoon tea one sunny weekend in 2014. Warm recently baked scones were delicious sitting out in the garden with the chickens. Since then, we've enjoyed excellent Derbyshire breakfasts, capuccino to satisfy fussy coffee drinkers and a variety of lunches from sandwiches to salads and amazing sea bass fish cakes. We highly recommend Aisseford tea rooms. We regularly... More

Very disappointing visit. I ordered scones which were as, previously reviewed, doughy, small and heavy. They had indeed been microwaved! My husband had smoked salmon and scrambled egg on toast. On his visit to the toilet, opposite the kitchen, he saw his eggs also being microwaved! They were, sadly, overcooked. In such a small tea room with at least 3... More

We treated ourselves to a cream tea each after a walk in the local area. The price was good at £4.50 each for 2 small scones, jam and clotted cream with the choice of tea or coffee. The scones were a little on the doughy side but there was plenty of jam and cream. Very friendly service and cosy atmosphere... More

We had a good pot of very nice tea and a large piece of good chocolate cake. The cheese scone was doughy and had been warmed in the microwave. The butter therefore melted into leaving a greasy bad taste. A real shame!

Tucked away in Ashford in the Water this is a delightful find. Very prettily decorated, there is a good choice on the menu of cakes, different types of sandwiches and also hot meals. I had some lovely Brussels Pate served with toast, red onion chutney and a salad . My husband had a tasty tuna mayonnaise ciabatta, also with salad.... More

We stopped in Ashford-in-the-water on a rainy Saturday morning and called in here for a pot of tea and toasted teacakes. The tearoom is beneath a craft shop in a quaint little cottage not far from the bridge. They serve breakfasts and light lunches and I thought the prices were average.
