Litlington tea gardens
Ranked #2 of 2 Restaurants in Litlington
Restaurant details
Reviewed August 20, 2014

We have visited this lovely little place many times over the years and have always enjoyed it. a recent visit with friends from Wales was no exception. In the past service has been slow at times, but on this ocassion was very quick and the waitress was lovely. My only slight issue is that the prices are a bit on the high side these days. I love the tea garden but it will have to be careful not to price itself out of visitors.

We so wanted this little place to match our memories - but sadly it didn't.
We waited a long time for someone to come and take our order. We were so put off along with the very hefty prices of simple food that we left.
It is a beautiful little place and holds some very special memories for our family - such a disappointment.

We enjoyed a lovely afternoon and the cream tea. Had not to wait a long time. We are very grateful to our friends, that they took us to this wonderful tea garden.

Litlington Tea Gardens is such a little gem. Set in lovely gardens in a picturesque village, it offers such potential. With it's little tables set in private summer house type huts, nooks and granny's and pretty gardens, it should be a pleasure to take the family there for a cream tea and browse in the little gift shop. We have been there on 3 separate occasions with various size groups ranging from 3 people to 6. But despite my faith in having a lovely experience in such a gorgeous place, every single time the service has been totally and utterly appalling! We were ignored by staff who just continue to walk past you, they did not come back to ask to take your order until you had to drag them over and when they did bother to take the order it seemed to be too much trouble. We waited for another 40 minutes for our cucumber sandwiches and cream tea to arrive. ( They took so long to take our order, we missed the lunchtime menu and were told that cucumber sandwiches were our only option). Starving, hot and bored, we paid for our cup of tea, the only item to arrive in the hour we were there and left to find somewhere more hospitable. Sadly, 3 strikes and we are out as our experience was exactly the same on the previous 2 occasions. The food did arrive but very late and was very average for the cost. Ever the optimist, I gave it another go...... Twice!
