Always visit localy known aunty VI's tearoom.In the colder weather limited indoor seating ,and on a warmer day lovely garden area.Food is not expensive with sandwiches,and light menu.Also serves a nice cream tea all year round.

We popped in for a light lunch after walking around Bosherston Lily Ponds. We were 100% satisfied with everything - staff service and attitude, the style and atmosphere of the place and of course the food. Cant add anything else but Brilliant! and Well Done!

This place looks great, with lots of tables set up in the front garden. There isn't room for many inside. It wasn't clear if you went inside to order or if someone came out, but despite there being several people at tables, there was no sign of any staff, so I went inside to order. The righthand room had a... More

Has the potential to be really lovely but let down by 3 discourteous ladies ; food dumped on the table with no reference to who had ordered what. Scones , jam and cream for 2 people served on 1 plate, god forbid you dare request another plate .Not clear that you have to find the waitress to order food in... More

Called in today. Very disappointing. Attitude of the two ladies serving was very poor. I don't think Auntie Vi would approve. We had a drink and two tea cakes which came on just one plate. Toilet facilities not adequate or clean.

Visited The Olde Worlde Cafe after a lovely long walk, sat outside as we had our dog with us. We thought how lovely, quaint and unspoilt it was. Coffee was lovely and the lemon drizzle cake was yum. Slightly disappointed on the cheap jam for the scones (we were there the day before too 😉) which made them just Ok.... More

I've been visiting this tea room since I was a child. Its always been magnificent but now I think its been spoiled by its own success. The jam and cream are pre-packaged and the scones are those you would buy in a shop. I'm sure that at busy times this is the best way for them to cope with the... More

Visited with family. Such sad news at the passing of a great lady. As usual however the food was great an olde worlde type, no new coffee still just the same old coffee taste great. Reading one previous review I think if you want soya and lactose free you need to visit Costa! This place caters for those who want... More

We stopped here after a day's walk for tea and cake. Great scone and bara brith, and very bracing tea. The setting and gardens were lovely.

We called in for tea whilst staying in Bosherton.....a bit windy outside so we sat in the "front room" along with other non hardy souls! My husband and I both ordered a cream tea, plenty of jam and cream but the scones were cold and did not seem entirely fresh. Lovely old fashioned teapot (with a strainer!) and china cups.....maybe...
