“A hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

We visited the Healey Dell Heritage Centre and Tea Rooms last weekend.Its such a fantastic place , very friendly , lovely carrot and chocolate cake and being a tea drinker was gob smacked how good the loose tea tasted ! Haven't used loose tea for years. The pianist on the baby grand added to the fabulous atmosphere. This is a great place to visit , a lovely walk in the
Dell and then a visit to the HDHC is a must , for young and old.A great place to meet a friend , or just an afternoon tea indulgence .A great attribute to the Healy Dell area and Rochdale.
Already planning a return visit. Keep up the good work.

“What a treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Good quality, a bit different in a very nice way, a venue to return to frequently. Watching for its development - its only been open a few weeks and deserves to do well.
