6 of us called into this lovely tea room as we were wandering through Lyndhurst. The very helpful staff found us a table straight away, even though it was extremely busy. The room is fairly large, and they do manage to get a fair few tables in, but even when it was full to capacity, we never felt squeezed in... More

Loads of room here and the staff are very friendly. They have a good selection of really delicious cakes and a great variety of different teas. The nice thing was that we did not feel hurried or under pressure....we just sat back and enjoyed our tea and cake.

Good food, only downside was a limited breakfast menu, my daughter doesn't like a cooked breakfast so the only choice for her was toast.

Tea room / cafe in the middle of the high street. Bright and clean with good choice of snack type foods and a few main meals. Reasonable prices and good quality. There are lots of tables so I could imagine could feel crowded when busy but on our visit which was during the week wasn't too bad. Staff very happy... More

Love this place, it is our 'go to' guaranteed place for great service, wonderful choice of lunch and afternoon tea things. When in the New Forest you need to know somewhere you can get afternoon tea, with no disappointment. It is clean, hygienic, friendly & a spoilt for choice menu. It is so popular it does get very busy &... More

We had stayed for a break in the New Forest and came to Lyndhurst for the day. The place was recommended by a local shopkeeper who was spot on. I'd made a tongue in cheek comment on ordering that I hadn't had a decent cup of tea during my stay; it was an exception here wonderful service and the quality... More

What a lovely place! Was the first place that we came to when coming out from the car park and decided to give it a go. Menu looked good, and reasonable. Went in and they were able to accommodate 6 (4 adults, one child and a baby). Menu had a great selection and they had a kids menu too. One... More
