“Traditional tea room right opposite the Abbey”
Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

Small Traditional English high tearooms. Cozy but not crowded and located across the room from the beautiful Abbey. We had a pot of tea & scones scones, handmade cheese and chuckney sandwich , freshly prepared cheese toasty and a latte. All where fresh tasty and good value for money with very friendly service. Well worth a visit.

“Proper English tea room”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

We enjoyed a lovely lunchtime stop-off here. Very prettily laid out and furnished with chintz and vintage china, very twee but very lovely! Food was prepared fresh - my scones had just been baked & were wonderful. My husband enjoyed Gloucester old spot sausage sandwich which looked and tasted good too, I was told!! Very reasonably priced and pleasant, prompt service. Would drop in again

“A lovely little tea-room”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

We just managed to get seated as it was lunchtime and the tea room was very busy. It is very quaint with oddments of crockery which added to its charm. We settled for sandwiches and scones, delicious!
