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.

Nice little tea room. Reasonably priced cakes & hot drinks. Lovely views of the river Wye. Efficient service, not particularly friendly but the staff were very young. Tables not cleaned once customers left which isn’t good in current times but, other than that, a pleasant...enough place.More

Had a lovely ploughman’s lunch and my partner had a lovely ham sandwich. Then we had 2 coffees which were nice. Staff were very friendly and the cost was reasonable would recommend.

Nice place for a spot of tea and cake. Gorgeous warm scone of adequate size. No frills with fancy colourful crockery or huge scones or chinz table cloths etc. The tearoom is not a posh sparkling birthday extravaganza location but it’s nice. I liked the...flowers growing in the terrace and the tables and chairs with parasols were perfectly placed to watch the world go by on the river. A bit hot under the plastic roofing on a warm day but I bet you would be super glad of it on a wet day. The bread for the “baguette” was so very fresh and tasty and the scones were delicious. The two girls were very very friendly and it seemed genuine rather than faked. They were lovely. A toilet on site and chairs reasonably comfortable. Prices seemed ok. Menu not vast, would have liked a chicken Mayo option on the old sarnies and maybe a chicken bacon option on the potato’s but yes we liked it and will go again without hesitation. Note if you haven’t been to Symonds Yat East before parking is a nightmare here so if it’s weekends or holidays arrive early to get a space, book here for lunch and go for a 3 hour walk. One of the best things about these places is the hand ferry but don’t rely on them. They are staff dependent and I have seen many a group arrive on the other side of the river to find no ferry working and not enough signage to know this is the case so they sit over there waiting for a boat that never comes.More

What a stunning place to sit and overlook the river boats passing by. The sandwiches were great, best bread, fresh ingredients and the afternoon tea was delightful. All made better by the wonderful attentive service Remember there is parking g immediately outside for customers so...no need to pay at pay and display if you are going here ..More

We visited this tea room twice whilst in Symonds Yat East. We had a cream tea the first time and tuna baguette the second time both washed down with their excellent pots of English Breakfast Tea. The food was very good indeed and the service...both efficient and friendly. Well Done.More

Having completed the challenging decent from Symonds Yat, we stopped at Rosie's for lunch on the terrace overlooking the River Wye. Our snack was excellent, I had a baguette and my wife a jacket potato and salad. The food was very good and the service...was very pleasant and first class Highly recommended for a midday pit stop.More

This review is written in April 2021 just as England is coming out of it's third lock down. My wife and I had been for a boat cruise on the River Wye and while we were not ready for a large lunch, we did need...tea and cake or similar. Rose Cottage has a lovely view of the river and as we were restricted to eating outside due to the Covid regulations, we were lucky that the weather was dry and warm enough for us to enjoy our visit. We were welcomed and shown to our table in a Covid safe manner, we both had a cream tea each which was certainly filling enough for a light snack. All in all a lovely location to just people watch and watch the river go by.More

Wonderful setting, food fantastic, my favourite was the Ploughman’s, the cream teas looked delicious. Service was excellent even though it was busy, watching the river flow & people canoeing made it more relaxing to wait, definitely worth a visit.

A brief rain shower after a lovely walk up and down the river (across the suspension bridge downstream) made for an unplanned stop at Rose Cottage, attracted by the outdoor seating with canopies and umbrellas. There were plenty of seats available, just as well as...it quickly became very busy. Service was friendly and very efficient, Helen had "the best scone I have had in a long time", Eddie and i enjoyed our fruit cake greatly (just like mother used to make).

The homemade scones were served warm and were beautifully soft and fresh. At £4.50 to include tea or filter coffee, this was excellent value, especially considering it's in a prime tourist area. We also ordered a baguette which again was slightly warm, fresh and a...good amount of filling. The staff were pleasant and friendly.More
