Thanks for your review yesterday, we are indeed the friendliest tea room in Poole 😊. Which room did you sit in, as we do have three separate areas. All our teas and cakes are priced very competitively. Our pot of house tea is only £2.10

We came here for lunch and had a sandwich each and shared a cream tea. The food was delicious but the home made scones were out of this world. Excellent host and value for money. We will return.

Response from Jane M | Property representative |
Yes we are indeed dog-friendly, if well-behaved and not too large, as we are quite a small establishment. We allow dogs in our courtyard area and in our flagstone-floored parlour and offer a bowl of water and doggie biscuits.

We didn't have afternoon tea but the table next to us did and I'm sure they booked it. Better to ring them as they are a very small but lovely place and they do turn people away. Hope this helps.

Sorry I have been away on holiday. The Tearooms do a lovely take away service, cakes, scones and just about anything else that you may like to order. Including lunch.
