Eleven of us had a really good late lunch/tea here. The service was quick and efficient. It was cold and wet outside and as soon as we sat down we were asked about drinks. There was a good choice of teas and coffees which arrived quickly giving us time to sit back and enjoy choosing the food whilst warming up.... More

I have been coming here for some time now and Ruth always delivers her service with a smile. We send several coaches here and always finds the time to cater for our passengers. We always have fab reviews and will always use this tea room when we visit Bourton-On-The-Water. You should try the cream teas, they are delicious! Thank you!

Don't go here if you worry about your waist line folks. Lovely scones, delicious cream and fruity jam - lip smacking good.

Unfortunately the Staff need to learn better customer service & table laying . The tearoom was rather disappointing & didn't live up to it's quaint sounding... More

On a very busy Sunday trip to Bourton-on-Water, where it was virtually impossible to get a seat anywhere to eat. Stumbled across Marys Rest. Served straight away and told may be a wait for food. We were a bit stretched for time as had to return to coach, but decided to take the chance. We ordered sandwiches and bagettes as... More

Enjoyed an excellent afternoon tea here today. Food was fresh (the scones were still warm!), flavoursome and so plentiful we ended up taking all our cakes home with us to enjoy later. The service was just right: attentive but unobtrusive. Cannot recommend highly enough and look forward to returning soon.

This little tearoom is a bit of the way but it's definitely worth a visit. The staff were very friendly, polite and helpful and the food was delicious with a range of freshly made sandwiches and tasty home made cake My visit was a delightful experience and I heartily recommend this tearoom
