My boyfriend and I had been on a long snowy walk on Saturday and came across the tea house. We weren't sure it would be open but it was and when we opened the door we were met by a lovely friendly lady. The tea house is so cute, incredibly cosy and comfy. We had yummy cake and hot drinks.... More

We had a very good cooked breakfast on sunday after church. It is a cute little room in a nice area with a view on to the Linton Green. Everything looked clean. Just one thing Toilets should be checked before opening hours.

Nice and relaxing. Lovely coffee, tea and cakes in a quaint small tea house in an equally quaint small Scottish Village (West Linton).

This is a pretty little place, with quirky decor and comfortable seating. I had a pot of good quality tea (enough for 4 cups, in a pretty china teacup, which I always love) and a large bit of carrot cake. The cake was a teeny bit dry, but it was the last piece, so not entirely unexpected. My friend had... More

We live semi- local and have popped in here several times over the years, experiencing several owners. It seems to have crept up slightly in price at £9 for 2 pieces of home baking and 2 drinks, but that said it is worthwhile for the experience. Beautiful and quaint, good selection of breakfast/lunch on offer and served in a cosy... More

Quaint and very well worth a visit for morning coffee, a light lunch or afternoon tea. Quite a limited lunch menu ( baked potato, panini, toastie, sandwich or soup of the day) but all are fresh and the tuna mayo sandwich is excellent. Home bakes are good too. Well worth a stop.

Such a hidden gem. Great brunch and lovely company. The full breakfast has set us up for the big journey back to Buckingham.

Pleasant place for a refreshment. It is always difficult to return to places when they are under new ownership. The Olde Toll Tea House has always been a favourite from when I used to live in West Linton and it is has a had a few owners over the last 10 years or so. We went in for a scone... More
