Took my mum here as it is so cosy with there new wood burner. My mum does not eat much but she polished off soup with a slice of Welsh rarebit and bake well and custard. Everything is home made including the lemon curd and pickle. Now my mums favourite place and mine

What a lovely surprise to find this delightful little cottage tea room. Being Americans, and looking for all things English, we were pleased with the antiques and the other home- made touches.Owner Monica was lovely and she suggested her home baked scones and homemade lemon curd! The coffee we ordered was richly brewed and the scones were delish! But the... More

On our way home from Church Stretton we called here for light refreshments. We ordered a pot of tea for two. Feeling peckish we asked to see the cakes and what was on offer, displayed on the sideboard looked very very disappointing so we took a leap of faith and ordered scones from the menu. Thankfully the scones were fresh,... More

What a pleasure it was to stop off at The Copper Kettle today - the staff were more than helpful even though it was close to lunchtime and all we had time for was a couple of cappuccino coffees - they also had a good selection of curds and chutneys so we are looking forward to our Pear and Walnut...

On a planned cycle ride of 100 miles our destination was Church Stretton for 3 riders. The weather was foul from the off but warm enough at the time to continue with the plan. By the time we got to Stretton we were sodden and cold and rode past the Copper kettle. We made an instant decision to stop and... More

I visited this shambles of a place on 20th August. Me & my family had been travelling for a few hours and thought we'd stop off for a drink & food. I went in first to check if they were wheelchair friendly as we were travelling with my mother-in-law who is only accessible by wheelchair & if they had a... More

Stopped here for a break on a recent motorcycle trip with a mate. Was made to feel welcome so definitely not anti biker. I have 3 pet hates in cafes/tea rooms. Teapots that pour tea onto the table as well as the cup, ditto for the milk jug and wobbly tables. Happy to report that none of these were present... More

This is a great place for a morning breakfast stop. It was all freshly cooked and the sausages..... to die for. Service was with personality which was warm and cheery. All in all a great experience

Visited for lunch on-route to Ludlow on a Friday afternoon. It's on the very busy A49 and you do have to be careful pulling into it and, indeed back out of it. We were greeted by a very friendly lady who showed us to our table. It is a very quaint, homely little cottage with lovely features. The menu was... More

We first went as a couple and enjoyed it so much we then took our adult children. We recommended to them the 'BLT sandwich', which whilst certainly not inexpensive is beautifully served and without doubt the best we have ever had anywhere. The two times we have visited we have found the service delightful. On the second occasion we were... More
