Description: Located in the beautiful village of Heath, less than 2 miles from Wakefield City Centre and the Hepworth Museum. This picturesque 18th century cottage provides perfect surroundings for a quaint yet stylish English Tea Room. White linen table clothes offset the bright cotton napkins, both of which compliment the white bone china. You can choose from homemade soups, sandwiches, light lunches and cakes. Taylor's of Harrogate provide their Tea Room Blend to make the perfect cup of tea and the coffee served is made with freshly ground Columbian beans. In the summer there is seating in the pleasant cottage garden where you will be served to the same high standard of fayre as in the Tea Room; or you can simply sit and enjoy one of more than nine Yorkshire Dales ice cream flavours available. Whatever you choose you will not be disappointed. If after your visit, you feel the need to walk off the calories you can enjoy a stroll around the Common or go further afield to Bluebell woods.

“First of many visits”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

good food, we had bacon sandwich, butternut sqash & sweet potatoe soup, carrot cake, tea & coffee - cost £15.
the bacon was absolutley the best I've ever tasted on a nice oven bottom cob. soup was very tasty with a choice of 2 soups & came with ciabatta bread & butter. carrot cake was lovely. good tea & coffee. the menu has a good choice, on our next visit we are going to share the afternoon tea - another customer ordered whilst we were there & it looked amazing - ditch the diet for the day :)
the surroundings are beautiful, I can imagine in summer going for a walk & stopping in there for a bite to eat. the out door seating will come into its own when the sun comes out.
The service was very friendly.
The only down side I would say is the Tea Room is very small & I can imagine it being noisy & crowded when full. Also make sure you take cash or your cheque book as they do not have card facilities yet.

Heath common is a lovely place anytime of year and didn't know the tearooms were here until recently. The team rooms are small and friendly, food nicely presented and tasty. Can recommend the platter :)

“Wonderful setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

This tea room is in one of the best locations around this area , It is like being in another world. The food and coffee were good. Slightly cramped in Winter but when you can sit outside at the tables it will be delightful.
