We popped into the tea room before going into the abbey, to see the 300 knitted monks. After marvelling at the building and the mini monks, we went back to the tea room for lunch. The red velvet cake is a marvel.

Run by hard-working, welcoming volunteers. Very reasonable prices and a good variety of sandwiches and jacket potatoes available for lunch. The cafe is in the grounds of Tewkesbury Abbey so is excellent for coffee before or lunch after a visit to the Abbey.
