Visited for the first time a very cozy, welcoming , friendly tea room out in the country with all home made food. Heard about it on tripadvdvisor . We had fantastic home made scones with cream and jam - lovely cinnamon and ginger natural decaf tea ( which was out of this world ). The mini complimentary home baked shortbread were beautiful . Everything was excellent. We will definitely be back for more !

All the way from Co Antrim to Mountnorris Co Armagh to visit relatives and called in with a good friend who owns Bide A Whie Country Tea Room. Lovely surroundings and she did us proud with a lovely lunch. Sharon, your tea room is a credit to you. Hope you have continued success. Looking forward to the next visit!

This little tea room is getting quite a reputation just by word of mouth. We visited for the first time this morning and we were delighted. I had a perfect latte, the most scrumptious raspberry and white chocolate scone that was just crammed with raspberries, (no hunt the raspberries here!). Also complimentary shortbread that is the best I've ever tasted. A little birdie also told me about some teenage boys who keep returning just for the chocolate cake which, they say, is the best they've ever tasted!! Definitely well worth a visit.

Friendly, Welcoming, Delicious scones, Cakes, Buns, Tart etc
Great Value. Well worth the drive to it. Very tastefully decorated, love the decor.
Didn't like the HUGE TV in corner, thankfully, no sound, can't imagine why it is there, very out of place. Children in & out(family members)
A first class place to relax with friends with great food. Very, very reasonably priced, loved the complimentary shortbread, best shortbread I have tasted. Soup & toasties were lovely, very filling & good quality fillings. Excellent , will spread the word to all my friends.
