Literally love it here! Such friendly staff, homemade afternoon tea - which is so hard to find these days. Always such a good selection of cakes and sandwich fillings. Definitely recommend.

A large group of us visited (having booked) for afternoon tea to celebrate a family member's birthday. Staff were welcoming and friendly and whilst a couple of us had arrived early we were still made to feel welcome until the rest of the group arrived. Bearing in mind we all had slightly different requests the waiter was accommodating and obliging.... More

We popped in here after a long walk in the new forest for a snack and had a delicious cream tea and toasted cheese sandwich. We liked it so much we went back again a few days later. Top marks for making me an off menu cheese and onion toastie, thank you for doing that, it made my day. Delicious... More

Went for a lunchtime snack. My wife had a fruit scone with jam and butter and I had a panini with sausage. I asked for ketchup and it was not what I expected as (served in an anonymous dish) it was extremely spicy. I persevered but when paying I asked what it was. Our waiter/cashier said no it was not...

Absolutely lovely and quaint. First visit and will visit again. Large, warm scones with a more than adequate serving of jam and cream

Smiley, friendly, swift service. To have a choice of 3 varieties of gluten free scones was simply wonderful. Did justice to the cheese and fruit ones. Had a lovely pot of Lapsang Souchong to go with it. All tea shops should be like this.

First place we came across heading in from a long walk, so ravenously we ditched bags and ordered from the traditional cafe menu: soups, ploughmans, sandwiches and jacket spuds. Ok, not sophisticated, but come on, this is a cafe. It was delicious! Amazing cheese scones, well dressed salads, tasty soup, locally sourced produce. We stayed for cakes afterwards, not like...

Visited here last year and were bowled over by the delicious home-made cakes. Came to the New Forest again in November this year and just had to revisit Rosie Lea's! We were greeted with a warm welcome and, this time we had 2 lattes which were delicious and salted caramel cake and fruit scone (served warm) with jam & cream.... More

Based in Brockenhurst on the Brookley Road, our bakery and tea house remains true to the ethics at the heart of the Rosie Lea brand, using locally produced New Forest ingredients to create high quality baked produce, keeping our carbon footprint down and remaining as ecologically friendly as possible.During a visit to the bakery you can expect to enjoy creations containing local eggs, flour, meats & cheeses, locally produced jam and locally crafted chocolates. In addition to supporting existing New Forest businesses, Rosie Lea also provides a comprehensive and varied “free from” menu aiming to give those with specific dietary requirements as good a selection as those without.All our produce is baked on site ad can also be beautifully packaged and taken away.The Tea House runs from early morning breakfast serving a good choice from menu from the humble muffin, to the house specialty “morning Tea”, a full continental breakfast served on a three tiered china cake stand, both glamorous and satisfying for hungry tums! Throughout the remainder of the day Rosie Lea will be serving up light lunches, full sumptuous afternoon teas and a variety of cakes and baked goodies, and of course it wouldn’t be Rosie Lea if they didn’t serve you on their beautiful vintage china!
