Thank you for your review and approval of the new Owl. The previous owners took everything with them so all that fascinating kitchenalia went with the sale. So glad you loved the food and we hope to see you again on your next visit. 👩🏻‍🍳🦉

My wife remembers visiting this tea room in her youth, as we are traditionally Byfords visitors we decided to visit the Owl for a change. Glad we did. To call this a tea room, does it an injustice. It is so much more than that....More
