We decided to try this place on the back of trip advisor reviews and so glad we did. We received a warm welcome, including our dog which is great! Lovely food, excellent service and hospitality. We would definitely return if we were in the area, highly recommended!

Whenever we are visiting Poole we always treat ourselves to lunch in the Little Teapot. Nothing too involved or gimmicky just straightforward food choices, well cooked and served with a smile. An added bonus is that the Little Teapot is dog friendly, much appreciated on a cold day ! Last visit I had the savoury tea consisting of two cheese... More

Staying in Poole for the weekend we headed straight to this gem of a coffee shop for lunch. We struck lucky and managed to get a table for four as spaces are limited. We had toasties and cakes. Very reasonably priced, service is great and very friendly. I would highly recommend!

Lovely quaint little tea shop. Great service, made to feel very welcome in a nice friendly informal way. Toasted sandwiches were delicious - as was home made chocolate fudge cake which was made to perfection - light, moist and very chocolatey at the same time. Tea was provided in a large china tea pot for the three of us and... More
