Reviewed May 31, 2013

Good selection of food on the menu including the cakes! The food is freshly made at the tea rooms and is very tasty! I had the lamb and apricot pie with hot vegetables and the meat was tender and succulent.

“Delightful !”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

We have popped into the Owl Tea Rooms on a few occasions when passing by Holt. The tea & cakes are scrumptious. The cake portions are very generous & you get plenty of tea with hot water to top up the tea pot with. So many cakes to choose from it's hard to decide which to have. On this viist I had a piece of the chocolate cake & my husband had a traditional scone with butter. Both were very tasty, could easily have had another round. On a nice day it's great to sit in the garden area at the back of the restaurant & although this is not a large area it is fairly secluded with pretty flower beds. The service was first class, very friendly staff & prompt service. We have not as yet bought anything from the shop at the front, think hubby escorts me out quickly so that I don't get carried away as it all looks so tempting. Overall it is a lovely place to stop awhile & relax during those hectic shopping trips.

“Almost perfect.”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

I'm lucky enough to be a "local", and although the other day I was "huffed" at for only having a twenty pound note, I really must say that the doughnuts from here are second to none! Huge and full of jam.
Please note, I was buying more than one doughnut with my twenty, so maybe "Blondie" was having a bad day!

“Full of scrumptious delights!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We returned to the Owl Tea Rooms having sampled their delightful food many years ago and their standards have remained high. The carrot and coriander soup was the nicest we've ever had and the vegetable pie was wholesome and very tasty. We were so spoilt for choice with the cakes and finally plumped for treacle tart and custard, which was so yummy. It was very busy, but we can totally understand why.
