“A lovely place to eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

A gem of a tea room serving lovely food. Friendly service from staff. Located at Avoncroft museum but can be visited without having to pay admission charges to museum. Though you will have to pay admission to visit the rest of the site. Well worth a visit.

“great tea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

I love my green tea so it was great to have all those teas to choose from. We had savory scones with cream cheese and a choice of relish and they were to die for. You can access the cafe without paying an entrance fee , so i would definitely take my family there one afternoon.

“Lovely afternoon tea, charming setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

We booked in advance and ordered high tea so a selection of sandwiches and 'twirls' (a wrap spiral with salmon and cream cheese filling cut into slices) with cakes, scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam and a choice from the selection of about 20 specialist teas - also English breakfast for the less adventurous. Served on a tired stand with tea pot and strainer. Cost about £9 each. Drinks and food reasonable prices. Homemade cakes in a display cabinet can be bought separately too. Also range of hot chocolates - I liked the sound of the real melted white chocolate one!
Children's selection included jacket potato with bean and high chair was provided.
There was a children's birthday party booked in the back room which had a peaceful charm itself with settees and book shelves. The children were dressed for a mad hatters tea party which looked like an organised event with activities in the museum and the children all looked like they were having fun. Interestingly the 'party' didn't affect our civilised afternoon in the other part of the tea room.
The tea room itself was warm and cosy. We took the opportunity to browse in the Avoncroft museum shop but this time didn't pay to go around the museum but the annual family pass is a good price.
Really worth a visit - either a special trip or a lunch stop to avoid hustle and bustle and relax for a while.
Oh - and it's liscensed too for those who prefer a real ale or glass of wine! (or two)

“A lovely surprise!”

A nice selection of food at a reasonable price. Good choice between sandwiches with wraps as an alternative. Cakes were all very tempting. A really lovely surprise.

“Charm on a plate (and in a cup)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2012

Staff very helpful and kind, and the range of cakes and teas is extensive. This is like stepping back in time - if only this level of service were available in places as prevalent as Starbucks!

The building is an original tea room, and the inside is largely historic too, although a large modern fridge humming in the corner with cartons of juices slightly distracts from the overall atmosphere.

That's a minor point though- overall, we love coming here, and getting spoilt with old fashioned cakes and leaf tea.
