We visited here last year and it was lovely but was so disappointed when we returned today to find it gone! The hotel building has been sold and no signs of reopening. Would love to know if they open up anywhere else.

Took the in-laws for a visit here when they were visiting from SA. It was a gem of a find and such an original setting. Food was a little pricey but we loved the overall experience, so didn't mind too much. Will def go back...More

This is tucked away on Brockenhurst high street. It has lovely mismatched furniture and china and a great place on a sunny afternoon for tea and cake.

A total quintessentially decorated tea garden with a 'feel' to match.... a bit like Alice down the looking glass. Superb idea of the kitsch garden furniture outside & serving proper 'English' tea.... By the way... not one for the 'mums brigade and buggy's the size...More
