Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Unfortunately when we arrived, we were met by a strange smell (look at the review by Violet B in August 2023), it totally put us off, so we didn't stay, also it was quite dark inside which wasn't suitable for people who are partially sighted

All i can say is Wow!! , we held my daughters baby shower at the quirky teapot and it was amazing, we chose to have a grazing board and Natalie and the girls done an amazing spread, we couldn't have asked for a more welcoming...and beautiful setting every one who attended said what a wonderful afternoon it was.More

They were excellent. I was celebrating my 80 birthday with family and friends. The food was scrumptious, the music just right and the service unbeatable. Brilliant

Found this wonder down a long track when looking for the IOW lavender. Place was such a lovely surprise. Food delicious and the two people running it were so friendly. Just a shame we aren’t local as would definitely be a regular, unfortunately Norfolk is...a bit too far away.More

Off the beaten track (quite literally) on the site of the old IOW Lavender for those with long memories. The road signs still advertise the latter despite it having shut more than a decade ago. Now the site is home to a delightful antique shop,...a floral decoration shop and the Quirky Teapot cafe. Absolutely outstanding toasted sandwiches and cream teas. All home made and put together with care and attention. And delightful antique cups etc. And, you’ve guessed it, quirky teapots!! Lovely people too. Go find it folks.More

Set in a beautiful tranquil old farm house , the quirky teapot looked very inviting upon arrival . When we got inside we were lucky enough to pick our table as we had beaten the rush , we pondered our menu and couldn’t help resist...the cream tea for two . Our tea was delightful and when the scones arrived they were warm and fluffy , the raspberry jam was utterly delicious and now a firm favourite with cream on a scone . The staff very friendly and helpful . This place is a delight and we shall be returning some time in the future for sure . This is a must visit despite it being off the beaten track , a real gem just outside of Newport .More

A gorgeous little tearoom set in the countryside. The menu caters for all and uses local produce on their light bites, lunches, afternoon tea and home baked cakes. Drinks are served in beautiful vintage cups and saucers with well brewed tea and coffee. I imagine...this setting is even better in the sunshine however even in todays pouring rain, we thoroughly enjoyed our time here. Thank you Natalie and team! We will be back xMore

I had a lovely Nammet platter for lunch. The staff were really friendly and drinks served in china cups and saucers. Will be going back for a slice of the homemade cake soon.

Brilliant tea room with the most amazing light fluffy scones, homemade strawberry jam and lashings of clotted cream! It was all served up in 50’s costume in an authentic setting. Next time we would like to try the 50’s Afternoon Tea - that looks lush!...The setting is down a lovely quaint track through fields of sheep! Comes highly recommended.More

Gorgeous collection of English out buildings covered in rambling roses, an antiques shop and flower shop mere meters away. We had a lovely wrap with home made coleslaw, Eton mess served in dainty china tea cups and a lovely fresh coffee pot for 2. We...sat outside in the sun and enjoyed lovely, friendly customer service. The only criticism is that the indoor cafe (though spacious and beautifully decorated) had a strange smell. Somewhere between Camembert, a damp mop or a wet dog. It’s very possible it could have been just some milk spilled on the flooring that day, but it was quite noticeable upon entering.More
