The Bantam Tea Rooms and Guest House is a traditional English Tea Room that offers excellent bed and breakfast accommodation. We are nestled in the heart of the historic market town of Chipping Campden. The premises was built in 1693 and directly overlooks the 17th-century Market Hall. The Bantam is situated on the High Street amongst beautifully preserved listed buildings of golden Cotswold stone, many of which date between the 14th and 17th century. Passersby cannot fail to be tempted inside by our display of mouth watering, home-made cakes which are freshly baked daily in our in-house bakery. Also all our delicious lunches are hand made on the premises. We pride ourselves on our impeccable reputation, locally, nationally and internationally. The Tea Rooms have a lovely tea garden which guests can enjoy from May to September. Guests staying overnight at the Bantam have evening access to the garden. We have our own private car park for residents at the rear of the property. Our stylish en-suite rooms are tastefully decorated with a comfortable and cosy feel. There is a peaceful, private guest lounge and throughout the winter months you can enjoy your delicious breakfast by our roaring log fire. Our rooms enjoy wonderful views of Chipping Campden. Our accommodation is open all year round including Christmas and New Year.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Went here today with the bairn while we were out walking in the area. For anyone who's never been I think this is one of the loveliest villages in the Cotswolds. The Tea room is open in the pandemic but there are precautions in place. Customers need the Covid App and wear masks. The tea room looks small from the outside but there is a large outdoor seated area at the back. We sat there. Waiter service only. We had a Cheese and Red Onion Sandwich with a pot of English Tea and a bottle of fruit juice and Scrambled Eggs on Toast with Salmon for the little un. The staff brought out a Salmon sandwich initially, which was quickly rectified. She said the food was lovely. Only one slice of toast but it was really thick. She Salmon appeared fresh and thinly sliced and raw. My sandwich came with salad and a dash of spicy chutney which added plenty to the experience. We have been here in the past when driving through on the way home but gave this another viewing today as walking through the village.

The bill for the lot £20, which is definitely not cheap, but this is much better than anything in Broadway, which is mainly for the tourists. Anyone in the area must pay a visit to this place, it's been open for many years and the staff are very friendly and were all wearing masks. For those bringing pets there are bowls outside the dogs and they can leave through the rear entrance afterwards. Payment by contactless point too.

We were doing a wine tour at the Little Oak Vineyard which is 20 mins walk from Chipping Camden and so we were looking for somewhere to stay for a night. Our stay in Room Silkie 7 at the The Bantam Team Rooms could not have been any more perfect.

We needed to arrive early because to get to the Vineyard on time, but this didn't faze them, we even had time for a cuppa and a generous slice of Bakewell Tart each, which we both agreed was quite possibly the best we'd ever tasted.

The Bantam Tea Rooms was perfectly placed in the centre of Chipping Camden almost opposite Michael's restaurant where we dined later that evening. Our room was built, furnished and decorated to the highest of standards, the bed was super comfortable. Our breakfast, which was locally sourced and baked and cooked on the premises was absolutely delicious, to the extent that we even bought a jar of their home made jam.

We would recommend the Bantam Team rooms for a cuppa and cake any day of the week and Room Silkie 7 at the Bantam Tea Rooms to anyone seeking a top spec quick getaway in a beautiful Cotswold town.

The owners Mark and Carolyn also very kindly allowed us leave our car in the car park while we went off walking with friends on the afternoon of our last day.

Stayed here last week and the team were incredibly helpful and kind. They made our stay comfortbale and even helped us plan our days out. They were excellent at making sure they had masks or visors on, due to the pandemic, and it made us feel very safe.

We stayed in one of their new rooms “Silke” and it was clean and beautifully decorated. The room included breakfast and this was amazing! Every morning we had different dishes freshly made and generously portioned. Then in the evening after a long day of hiking or cycling we enjoyed the cakes and scones which were absolutely scrumptious.

Thank you so much everyone and we hope to stay with you again soon!

My wife and I had been staying in the local area for a few days prior to stubling accross bantam tea room for breakfast before we returned to London. This was less than 1 week after businesses had re-opened post covid-19 lockdown. Having been to a few other businesses to eat/drink during our stay in the cotswolds, Bantam was the most impressive with clearly taking the safety of their customers and staff seriously. It was the safest feeling venue we had been to, with the staff working really hard to wipe everything down, maintain social distance, and wearing appropriate PPE. The breakfast and coffee was good too! Shame its too far away from home for us to return, but definitely recomend.

We fancied a change of scene so stayed here for the night in room 4. It was very nicely decorated and equipped with a tv, kettle, hairdryer etc.

Breakfast the next morning was lovely, there was a great assortment available on the menu and the portions were plentiful. Gluten free bread was also available on request which was perfect.

Unfortunately it happened to be a very humid evening and the room only had skylight windows which did not open very far, so it was very warm in the room during the night. Perhaps a fan may have made sleeping a little more comfortable but besides that, we really enjoyed our stay.

Touring through the Cotswalds we ended up at The Bantam having read they also serve gluten free and dairy free. From the outside you are lured in by all the tasty cakes in the window. Inside we were greeted and seated by the owner and we can only say she seems to run a tight ship with an eye for detail.

The place is immaculate. Beautifully done up in a pleasant mix of old and new. And not only the tea room itself, but also the toilets were others often let you down. (Nice touch: a picture of an Bantam motorcycle in the Gents).

Staff was friendly, helpfull and even patient with us because they had to bear with all our different dietary needs. Wich was no problem for them at all. They just fiddled a bit with the menu to make it fit.

Gluten and dairy free salmon sandwich and a toastie for my wife and daughter. And for me a non gluten free scone to die for.

Can't I fault The Bantam then? Yes I can. It's too far from my home, so another visit isn't going to happen soon.

A couple of suggestions but easily 5 stars!

So often a veggie breakfast is less than a meat breakfast, not just in this establishment but in many, it seems to be assumed vegetarian don’t eat much! My veggie breakfast could have had a veggie sausage or hash browns (even if they had been a extra price) but…….

The food was very good the whole place was spotless, we could see into he kitchen that looked extremely clean, the toast was amazing, not he standard sliced loaf and it came with REAL butter.
Everything was well priced well-presented and tasted great, the menus offers lots of choice, I would thoroughly recommend, and will be back very soon.

My husband and I stayed for four nights just before Christmas and really enjoyed our stay. We wanted somewhere in the North Cotswolds with guaranteed parking, a quiet village but with amenities (number of cafes, pubs, restaurants, shops), potential for walks and also a good breakfast. The Bantam provided all of those things and more. We had a stunning view from our room (Pekin, room 5) which was very large, warm, had tea / coffee making facilities which were topped up during our stay and a wonderful view of the 17th C market hall. We were offered breakfast before the tea rooms opened and there was a great selection prepared fresh (including homemade jam). The staff were also very friendly (we were served by a number of different members of staff during our stay and not one was rude / unpleasant as other reviews have suggested). It is also a fairly small tea room in quite a small village so I can imagine that in busy periods it would be difficult to get a table during the day. The only thing to bear in mind is that when the tea rooms close, there are no members of staff on site so you let yourself in and out of the accommodation, and then walk through the car park of the adjacent pub to get onto the high street (rather than via the tea room). All in all, a fantastic stay and we will certainly be returning!

Stayed here on first night of our honeymoon. Delightful, comfortable room that allowed us access after the tea rooms closed for the day. The en-suite shower room was very attractive with a large shower cubicle. All spotlessly clean. Breakfast in the tea room was fresh and delicious, served in front of a lovely log fire. Delightful staff. We dropped by again the next day for lunch, which was just as good with very good coffee.

Stayed in the superior ground floor twin the room was pleasant, it did need a deep clean lots of cobwebs and a half empty (complementray) shampoo bottle left in the shower, very hot not able to turn the heat down, ran out of loo roll.
Good car park, the breakfast served in the tearoom was very good and we were able to change what was listed, the team who looked after us were very pleasant and attentive.
We went back in the day for tea and cakes and had a meal when we arrived, all very good, the very best cream tea, the scones were the best I have ever had.
