Hidden away down a side street, accessed by a narrow alleyway, through an old churchyard, you could be forgiven for missing this little gem of Cheltenham. But you'd be kicking yourself if you ever walked past without trying this charming and unique tea room. Visiting for the first time on the personal recommendation of a local, my daughters and I...

I recommended by friends and family so I was really expecting a lovely experience. Went with husband and kids and we had a cream tea for 4. We were shown to our table which had too many cups and plates for us but no spoons for our tea and coffee. Sandwiches came but waitress failed to explain what the fillings... More

Excellent! Every time I visit we always have afternoon tea here. It is tiny inside, not a lot of room between tables but soooo lovely. The decor is fab, like stepping back in time. Fabulous Cakes and a great choice of other options on the menu.

If you want to have a truly unique experience, which is something very hard these day you MUST visit Well Walk Tearooms! We went to celebrate a pivotal birthday and Tom and the waitresses made every effort to make this a memorable celebration. From dietary needs, volumes and types of food to access and accommodating our party of 8 people... More

Lovely quaint cafe away from the hustle and bustle of the town centre serving delicious homemade food catering for a range of dietary requirements, all reasonably priced. What more can I say?! Highly recommend the gluten free scones and chocolate cake - by far the best chocolate cake I've had as a coeliac.

Our initial waitress was really attentive, listened well and advised on items on the menu. I had the quiche which was beautifully fresh and piping hot. My wife had a couple of the cakes (which I...

Visited yesterday on the off chance they had a table for 2, they did, upstairs and what a wonderful quirky place it is! Mum had a filter coffee and coffee and walnut cake and myself, I had a pot of tea and cherry and almond cake. Beautiful! And reasonably priced. Loved the higgledy-piggledy crockery - all adds to the effect!... More
