I never leave a review if a place is not great but I will for this one. I'm not sure what other people liked, but besides the terrible service (we waited for 35 minutes to get any drinks), the quality of everything in the tea...room was terrible. Very bad coffee, completely burned, microwaved scones, supermarket - quality brownie. It's a shame because the place is lovely but you need to put some more attention to your products. The scones were not bad if they weren't so soft but the coffee, honestly, how difficult is it to make some nice coffee with the professional coffee maker you have there? I wouldn't recommend it or go back.More

We’ve been here a few times and I don’t recall ever having an issue before, but on this visit my husband ordered the quiche and salad which was disappointing to say the least - a very small slice of cheese, onion and tomato quiche (so...not even expensive ingredients), a few small pieces of new potato and a huge heap of green leaves, not even a proper salad. It cost £10.95 which I thought was extortionate. Especially as they also charge £3.15 for a bottle of coke! Other items were better but I do think this one needs reviewing by the management team - either in terms of the price or the portion.More

Travelled solo for my birthday. First time in Stow-on-the-Wold. Stumbled upon Lucy's which looked the most inviting place. Arrived as it opened. They were so friendly and smiley, polite, place clean, and food scrummy. The view was great too. Absolutely nothing to complain about. Would...highly recommend.More

We popped in here one weekday afternoon recently to grab a small snack and a cup of tea. After carefully navigating my mother in her wheelchair into this relatively tiny place we sat at a decent sized table in the main part of this tea...room. We ordered the sausage rolls - nice and warm and full of herbs. Service was good despite the place being quite busy. On seeking out the loos out the back I discovered a little courtyard area which would have been nice to use if the day had been a little warmer. And in the restrooms I was intrigued to find some high quality liquid soap and hand cream. A nice, special touchMore

A nice tearoom offering good lunch and cake options. The scones were really lovely. Service a little slow (wanted another tea, but nobody came back upstairs after taking initial order). Great for afternoon teas.

Lovely little B&B attached to the Tea Rooms. Warmly greeted on arrival and the room was clean and cosy. Was very quite in the evenings after the tea room had closed and is well situated in the centre of town. The breakfast was lovely and...the staff were all very friendly and helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. There is no designated parking, and the town square parking is only two hours until 18:00 and the car had to be moved by 11:00 , but this was not an issue at all, as there is a free 72 hour car park just a minute walk away. A lovely stay and would stay again.More

Hello, we do allow dogs, as long as they are well behaved and you don't mind them being fussed over by us!
