This cafe serves nice food with things from baguettes, jackets, breakfasts, ghoulash, scampi and loads more. The price was average with a jacket at £4.95, a large breakfast at £7.00 and scampi at £8.50 and the portions were a good size.

As it's attached to the museum it follows the theme but you can visit the cafe even if you don't want to go into the museum. Prices of mains are a little pricey to be honest but both our food, breakfast and baguette tasted good and fresh. Apparently sausages on the breakfast meals are butchers sausages. The cafe is somewhere... More

Good tea and coffee and the best bread pudding, as good as Granny used to make. Well worth a visit after a walk along the river

I expected a tea room having heard all about Teapot Island. While acknowledging that the collection of teapots is impressive, unfortunately, the establishment is really a roadside cafe lacking in any finesse. Pleasant gentleman at the till.

First visit to Teapot Island with a friend today to cure our curiosity. Beautiful spot right next to the river with swans and ducks. A pleasant riverside walk to work up an appetite. Not a huge menu but more than adequate. Maybe a little pricy, ham egg and chips was £8.50. Very tasty food though and served quickly. Little play... More
