Lovely little cafe with lots of gluten free treats. I had the best GF scone there. I honestly wouldn't have been able to tell the difference. Sometimes GF scones resemble pancakes more but not this one! Friendly, helpful staff.

We felt like we'd stepped back in time in this traditional teashop from a bygone age. At the top of the stairs a table displayed a mouth-watering selection of homemade cakes (all hygenically covered I must stress). Once seated in the cosy upstairs room (one of two) we plumped for a pot of tea and sultana scones with jam and cream, and they really were the best we've had - large, freshly baked and warm, with a perfect texture and taste. We were offered a choice of jam flavours.
The pretty crockery, decor and ambience all added to the old-fashioned experience. There was a good selection of homemade hot and cold fayre available.
We were astounded by the reasonable prices, which seem to be stuck in a bygone age too, but we weren't complaining, and felt by saying 'keep the change' we were just paying a fair price anyway.
The ladies toilet was, strangely, an actual bathroom, like in a normal house. I noted it had baby-changing facilities.
If you've just come down from walking the hills into Great Malvern, make this your first port of call! There are even trays provided by the door, in which to leave your muddy boots if you want to.

Up some narrow steps above a small shop. Good range of hot and cold meals / snacks. Good portions of freshly made food. Nearly a 5 rating ... a smile from the waitress would have been nice.

This is a tiny place with lovely atmosphere, friendly staff offering delicious home made desserts for a fair price. I can really recommend the scones served with butter/clotted cream and jam. If you go to Malvern this place is simply a must!!

A beautiful hidden gem. If you had to picture a a little traditional tea room, this would be the perfect match. Beautiful tea, scones and cakes and a good selection of lite snacks.

The one surprising aspect of this place is the lack of locals. The tea rom seems to be solely occupied by walking and hiking tourists.
