“The Best Little Tea House in Town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

Next door to Castle ruins and a River walk in the pretty coastal town of Christchurch. What more do you want from a tearoom? You get it! Good food, good service, fair price. All in a quant setting.

“Sweet tearooms”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

The New Forest Perfumery is a sweet little tearoom in the centre of Christchurch. The outside area is small but quaint. The Dorset cream tea is quite tasty. The fruit scone was yummy and you get a decent amount of cream and jam. It's a little bit pricey for what you get but it's a nice setting so you don't mind too much.

There are a lot of nice cafes in this area and this is a good option, especially if you want to sit outside.

“Nice enough”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

Been before. Lovely cheese scone and bowl of fresh soup, reasonable price £6. Shame the waitresses are so chatty with themselves though. Noisy kitchen, dropped a tray of something out of a house oven. Warm cosy. Toilets could do with a face lift or decoration though. Would in again though.

“Fantastic Little Tea Rooms in a Beautiful Spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

My partner and I visited here recently as we had a voucher for a cream tea. Set in the beautiful village of Christchurch, with a stunning walk around the castle walls and grounds next door to it, this little tearooms had a small pretty courtyard, filled with flowers where we sat in the sun. The staff were very nice and polite, and could not do enough. We had a cream tea each and the bunny crumpets which were delicious. We didn't have to wait long, but were not rushed and thoroughly enjoyed it. I will be recommending to any of my friends who plan on visiting Christchurch. Great and fair prices too.

“Brilliant place for a good cuppa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2013

I go here at least once a week, as I'm local, staff are friendly and efficient, there food is second to none, and if you like somewhere that doesn't serve chips you'love it, the cream tea is the best in the area
