Had pleasure of visiting The New Forest Perfumery tea room at Christchurch, which is just off the Priory end of the High Street.

Olde Worlde charm with numerous beams and smallish rooms. There is a court yard area if the weather permits.

Had the set cream tea with a scone. Nice large freshly baked scone (still warm) plus a pot of tea, cream and jam. All pleasantly served by the friendly but not over bearing waiteresses.

Would be happy to retun when in the area and recommend to others.

After shopping at Christchurch market on a Monday, this is our regular stop for refreshments.

The young waitresses are always friendly and keen to see regulars. The fruit scones are out of this world on a Monday for freshness. Steaming hot usually and a good size too.

Unfortunately 2012 was not a year for enjoying the nice courtyard garden which is an oasis of peace.

This is a traditional cafe , serving a wide range of snacks, teas, coffees and more substantial meals. If you go for breakfast before 10am, there is a special deal(2for 1). The parsnip and ginger soup we had was delicious, served with fresh home-made bread and butter. There was a wide range of fresh cakes and desserts, including gluten-free, and the staff were most obliging and quick to bring our food and drinks. In summer, you can sit outside, but the interior is cosy. It would be a good place to go while shopping or sightseeing in Christchurch.

We had a local deal voucher for a cream tea and were really pleasantly surprised to find a lovely courtyard garden and service with a smile :) the cream tea was probably the best we've had - huge chunk of hot, freshly baked scone and the perfect amount of cream and jam!

10 out of 10, we will be back to sample the breakfasts very soon

Thank you
