Ate here with 4 friends on a wet Friday lunchtime. We very much liked the tea shop. Although in the centre of Bourton, it is not on the main road and slightly hidden. But definitely worth finding! Great service, very friendly, not rushed at all....More

Came here for a quick lunch & the staff were very happy, friendly & helpful. Food was tasty- red onion jam in my sandwich was delicious! Worth a visit.

Visited for breakfast and didn’t quite live up to the star studded reviews. Nothing wrong but nothing wonderful either. Did offer gluten free options which was a bonus but no brown sauce for bacon sandwich which was disappointing. Just left feeling a bit deflated.

Lovely cream tea. Scones were fresh baked and warm. Cream tea came with two scones. One plain one fruit and lashings of cream and jam! Afternoon tea also looked amazing. Big!!

This was my first afternoon tea experience and it didn't disappoint. I made a reservation through Facebook chat and was an hour late. I couldn't call because I didn't have service but they were so kind and forgiving and led us right in. The food...More

We had one Afternoon Tea and one Gentleman's Afternoon Tea and what a treat, cured meats, cheese, sandwich and cake including scone with jam and cream, a winner for us. Lovely setting and helpful staff what else do you need.

Popped in for lunch here, we visited a few years ago and decided to try again. We ordered one afternoon tea and one chicken burger. The food is fantastic! The afternoon tea was massive as I struggled to finish. A lovely sandwich, warm scone and...More

My Husband and Myself found this little tearoom up a side street. It was very quaint, just as you imagine a Tearoom should be. The cakes and sandwiches are served beautifully and the girls who greet and serve you are lovely and helpful. It was...More
