A stroll around Olney should always be accompanied by a visit to an old-fashioned tea room, and Teapots fits the bill.
The furnishings are comfortably chintzy but the changes you'd expect to be in place have been introduced with a light touch.
Tables have been spaced out, you need to hand over your details if you're just stepping in off the street, but the bill of fare has stayed very traditional.
We plumped for a generous ploughman's with a selection of cheeses and a prawn jacket potato, both were top notch.
Loos are spotless but they are at the top of a couple of flights of stairs, which is worth bearing in mind if mobility is an issue.

In the midst of Covid it is great to have some sanity return to life with places like this coming back to give us some comfort.
The enforced lockdown has seen a number of physical changes having been implemented but the bright ne table tops, screens, masks, reduced table layout hasn't changed the atmosphere and friendliness of the staff with a true welcome still being extended to all who come through the door.
I sensed a slightly reduced food offering due to the menu being on a wallboard display rather than on the table but pretty sure if you fancied something not shown, efforts would be made to give you what you want. It's that sort of place!
Nice to see Teapots back.

So happy that this wonderful tearoom has opened for business again. Couldn’t wait to go back to have lunch. Everything has been made safe for visitors and is spotlessly clean. The food is fresh and delicious as always, and the scones remain the best for miles. If you haven’t eaten here before, you need to pay a visit. Well worth the wait.

My wife booked afternoon tea for myself and family for a birthday treat and I must say it was absolutely beautiful, lovely selection of sandwiches, gorgeous cakes and warm scones with jam and cream endless tea and coffee if wanted. All unrushed and in a really lovely atmosphere. If you want to book afternoon tea for a special occasion I would not hesitate to thoroughly recommend Teapots.

I have found another little gem in Olney for you , its a wonderful little tea house called the TEAPOT. Last weekend my partner and I just fancied a nice cup of tea and a piece of cake so we went into this little teahouse , it was like stepping to the past with lovely tea and cakes served on china , best china as my grannie would say with very nice sandwiches and home made cakes , they also serve breakfast as well
