“A wonderful trip out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014 via mobile

We go to Darwen furniture warehouse and Dolly's regularly. In fact we are off there today. Delicious home cooked food, friendly service and fantastic value for money. The pea and ham soup and beef sandwich are a must! The shop has also provided us with beautiful furniture and extras and Michael is about to fit a new bedroom suite for my 13 year old. Thank you to all who work so hard there.

“Great tea shop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

I have visited Dollys Tea room and gift shop many times for lunch and afternoon tea. I have never been disappointed with the food and have always found something that little bit different in the shop.

“Best place in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

I can highly recommend Dollys Tearoom. Food, drink and service are all excellent. Hot and cold sandwiches made fresh to order. Located inside the amazing Darwen Furniture and Gifts which greatly accompanies this quirky tearoom. Shopping and eating go well together and i have purchased both furniture and gifts here and have never been disappointed.

We frequently return for food and shopping, this is a true asset to the town. I expect you wont be disappointed.

“Darwen's best kept secret.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

Darwen furniture and gifts incorporating Dolly's tea rooms is a 'mini-tourist attraction' in which you can spend 2 to 3 hours viewing the plethora of quirky gifts and excellent value furnishing plus a small collection of very well chosen unusual ladies clothing. The jewel in this gem of a place is 'Dolly's tea rooms', which consists of 10 or 12 comfortable tables. The food is simple but made with care from fresh and healthy ingredients, as well as the table menu there are always 'daily specials', a few weeks ago i had a lasagne that the best Italian restaurants would find hard to match, today I had a very substantial beef ,bacon, and cheese burger made with 100% minced beef garnished with potato salad and my wife had a roast ham (not the plastic vac-packed stuff) and grated cheese sandwich with a very crispy and fresh salad. I sat very comfortably (whilst the 'Mrs' was trying on various 'tops') enjoying a PROPER pot of tea ( I can't stand places that charge £1-50 for a half empty thimble made with a cheap tea bag accompanied by a fiddly little plastic milk pouch), the tea here is what you expect from a bona-fide tea room and is enhanced by daily fresh cakes, and jam & cream scones. There is a sheltered walled courtyard for outside dining on a nice day and parking is not a problem, there are several diagonal spaces outside the front door and another several in a layby opposite on the main A666. P.S forgot to mention, my total bill (excluding 2 silk ladies tops) was £11-70.
