Quaint, cosy and deliciously tasty

We used to visit the restaurant at the farm shop of a nearby, and very well-known, country house. Sadly, we found the service up there was not up to the standard of the food. Now whenever we're near Ashford, we regularly visit the Aisseford Tearoom which, though much smaller, benefits from... read more

Having visited Ashford in the Water; its restaurants, pubs & hotels over the years it was great to be revisiting this picturesque village in Derbyshire once more. Changes had occurred but nothing too detrimental. We decided to call in at the Aisseford Tea Room for refreshments. Aisseford is the name of Ashford as in the Doomsday Book and this is... More

A smart tea room with seats inside, in the verandah and up in the garden. Resisted the strong temptation posed by the cakes but enjoyed the biggest and tastiest, if not the cheapest, toasted-teacake-and-coffee snack. The blackboard also mentioned something like "wife connection" but I suspect this was a mis-spelling as several customers were using laptops.

Visited recently with my family. Superb service, great range of food and genuinely seemed to care that our children also had a great experience. We will be returning.

Really good to find a cafe which is dog friendly and not having to sit outside in the cold scones and food really tasty

We have been here many times before and have always had an excellent snack and cup of tea in the past. Today was not so good. It was pouring with rain so we were the only people there for quite a while and the staff were not busy. No excuse therefore for every table to have small crumbs on it,... More

Amazing selection of teas. The sandwiches and cakes looked very tempting, but when we heard the scones were made with sweet mincemeat, that was decision made. And delicious they were too. Muddy boot and dog friendly. A real asset to the village.

Gorgeous food, especially the panninis and homemade burgers. Quality food and very good customer service. Would recommend this cafe to anybody. It also has a nice little garden you can have your dinner in with the chickens.

Like a lot of other reviewers we stopped in on the return from a walk, & glad we did. Classic little tea room with a warm & friendly atmosphere. Ordered the tea & scones-which were lovely & just what we needed after a long walk. All very nice in a beautiful little village.

After a walk we popped in for a cuppa and something to eat. It's a lovely quaint tearoom with friendly staff. The bacon sandwich was packed with bacon in fresh granary bread with sauce served in a little glass jar. The teapot was BIG so top marks for that!! Two sarnie and tea less than a tenner. Excellent value. Would... More
