Excellent, we were here for a Valentines Day afternoon tea treat. Booking was easy, staff were polite and food was great! This was our second visit to the Hathaway Tea Rooms and neither has been a disappointment.

Lovely tea shop - good quality tea, fresh and imaginative cakes, and a building that is a true piece of heritage. Well worth a visit, even if only for a cup of their own blended tea.

Lovely historical cafe. It hasn't changed since my first visit when I was a child 30 years ago. The food is lovely and well presented. They serve all day breakfast. Staff are friendly and welcoming. Always worth a visit when your in Stratford upon Avon
