OMG if you want a roast dinner like your Nan used to cook, look no further than Nellie Crumb in Wareham! Took my Aunt and Uncle there on Sunday for lunch and although the choices were limited it really didn't matter because the Roast beef was to die for, it literally melted in your mouth. The veg had been cooked... More

Thank you for taking time to put your review about your recent visit on Sunday. We are glad that you enjoyed your special Mothers day roast lunch - we did try our own Yorkshire puddings but because the oven door was continually opened they didn't rise as they should have so we had to use an alternative! I know Zoe... More

We stopped off here to shelter from the rain and enjoy a nice coffee with Dorset Apple cake. We had our dog with us and were made to feel very welcome. They even have dog biscuits so your dog can get a treat as well. This is a lovely friendly tea room that also serves meals and is very dog... More

On Friday morning we visited Nellie Crumb and ordered a vegetarian breakfast priced at £7.95 - which seemed a bit pricey but we were hungry! After waiting sometime the breakfasts arrived - 1 grilled tomato, a small pile of no more that 2 or 3 thinly sliced mushrooms, a few pieces of fried potato and the rest of the plate... More

I am sorry that you were unhappy with your vegetarian breakfast. The description of the breakfast is on the menu and therefore what you read is what we offer. I was not working on Friday but without seeing what was served it is difficult to comment - I pretty sure that it wouldn't have been two mushrooms and a small... More

After waiting for a considerable time to be asked what we would like to order I'm afraid we walked out! We counted at least 4 staff and 1 took an order from the table next to us but completely ignored us, restaurant was empty on a Saturday afternoon so there was no excuse for being run off their feet, we...

I am extremely sorry to see that you had poor service when you recently visited our tea rooms - we had been busy over the lunch time but by the time you came in it seems that we were quieter. I will certainly be speaking to the staff who were on duty in the restaurant that afternoon. It depends on... More

In a wonderfully quaint half-timbered building with old bakery oven and open log fire, this is a great place to stop for tea/coffee lunches, or just to buy some cakes for your picnic. Family run, so genuinely friendly atmosphere and service. Thank you Jesse.

We are pleased that you enjoyed your recent visit to our tearooms - the fire is a welcome sight on these wet and windy days! You are right that we are a family business and we are glad that you found us friendly and I know that Jesse will be pleased with your kind comments. Thank you More

My wife and I used to visit this restaurant while on holiday. Now we have moved to the area we have the pleasure of using it more often. Friendly and attentive service. Excellent food and best of all, they are dog friendly

After waiting for ten minutes in a virtually empty restaurant and being ignored by 4 different members of staff who constantly passed by we voted with our feet and left. A simple "we will be with you shortly" is all they had to do but none of them had either the time or inclination to extend this simple courtesy to... More

This tea room/bakers in South Street, Wareham is quaint and quirky. They do a lovely english breakfast in the seating area at the back of the shop. All local produce and very nicely presented.

Cosy little cafe/restaurant with friendly service and very tasty food. Not the cheapest (over £5 for a sausage sandwich) but no complaints about quality. Warming fire at the back as well.

Thank you for your recent review. I am glad that you found us friendly and that the food was tasty. The chipolata sausages that we use come from our local butcher and we think that they taste good.
