Description: A 1940s themed Tea Room in Stratford-Upon-Avon. Come and join us in the 1940s and experience gorgeous loose leaf teas or a lovely cup of coffee accompanied by sandwiches on locally baked bread or try a cake or scone made daily on the premises by one of our bakers. No packet mixes or frozen products here. We also offer a gluten free cake each day and will do our best to help any other allergies too. The Fourteas is an experience not to be missed. The Fourteas has won the 2012 TouchFM Pride of Stratford Awards Town Outlet of the Year and has been selected by Jamie Oliver for his best 1000 Places To Eat In Britain app. We have recently moved to larger premises, but we are still only operating from one shop with no plans to expand to a chain yet!

“Unique and Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

We visited due to the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor and must say that we were not disappointed. The 1940's themed decor and dress really gave an authentic feel and experience to this charming venue. We had afternoon tea which consisted of a large pot of tea, two homebaked fruit scones accompanied with cream and jam, two sandwich quartets and a selection of homebaked cakes which we could not finish! However, we were able to take away. Very well priced for both the service and quality of food received. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Stratford.

“A Step Back in Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Stratford Upon Avon is quite a quirky little town. Old world charm, with narrow streets, doors with charming door knockers right on street level, and several pubs. A few more upscale restaurants and stores ie Crabtree and Evelyn and Laura Ashley. You turn up a side street and come across this charming tea house set in the 40's. All wait staff dressed in 40's styles and we heard if you dress in similar fashion you get a free meal.
Our wait staff were delightful. Tea arrived very quickly with a timer to let you know how long to brew for perfect flavor. The scones were warm, delicious, and of course served with jam and clotted cream. They don't rush you and a perfect place to relax after touring all the historic sites of the area.
A must stop if you find yourself in the area!!

“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Our visit to The Fourteas was wonderful. It was a delight to see all the extra little touches that are put in to make it authentic. Newspaper squares hanging on string in the toilets (alongside real loo roll) and a doggy bag which was a cardboard box tied with string like a gas mask box. Was thrilled when a party of people came in dressed in period clothes as well. The tea itself was great, fresh with very generous portions. Specially blended tea and lush cakes! Loved it!
