Whilst visiting Dorchester we came across this tea room in the Antelope Arcade. It is situated on the first floor and is like stepping back in time. The room has wood panelling and the waitresses reminded me of Upstairs Downstairs all dressed in their black and white traditional uniform, you will only know what I mean if you are of a certain age!
We ordered coffee and an Earl Grey Tea which came with lemon and I have to say this is the first time I have been offered lemon in a long time so I was quite impressed.
There was a proper heat pad on the table for the teapots so everything was presented properly.
The menu looked very good indeed and we were sorry that we weren't hungry. The prices were extremely reasonable
Overseas visitors would find this place absolutely charming and the history is fascinating.
Toilets are on the second floor but were clean and tidy and decorated in the same black and white theme that runs throughout the place.
A great tea room and well worth a visit. I will definitely go back
