“A proper Tea Room”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2013

We spent the Easter Weekend in Bourton on the Water and ate at the Danish Tea Room on two occasions. It's just a friendly place offering good home-made, wholesome food at decent prices. Don't expect anything too lavish - but you won't be disappointed with the food. It's no wonder it always seems to be full...

“Warm friendly and inviting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2013

Me and my husband visited the Danish Tea Room as we had been given a voucher for a deluxe afternoon tea and we centainly were not disapointed. We were made very welcome by the owner who was very friendly and WOW what a fabulous tea we had with lots of lovely cakes, sandwiches and tea and coffee.

Nothing was too much trouble for her and the suroundings were very warm and cosy as the weather outside was very cold that Sunday afternoon.

The tea room was easy to find - from the main car park follow footpath signed 'to the village' and later where the footpath branches take the right turn signed 'Village via Moore Road'.

This is a little gem and not to be missed - enjoy

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2013

Wow what a great afternoon tea. The scones were the best I have had and warm, real clotted cream. Lots of cake and the sandwiches wer freshly made with a choice of filling. This is worth the money and friendly staff, good service. Would go back. You must try it. Great location too.

“Excellent food and service - fantastic scones!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2013

Just had a most pleasurable afternoon in Bourton-on-the-Water. My wife and I made a special trip to visit the Danish Tea Room having read the reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. Having been a chef for 18 years in my past life I can truly say that the scones are one of the best I have ever had...I have cooked for the Queen so I should know! :-) The scone was clearly made with fresh ingedients (not from packet mix!) Very impressed indeed. Also had an open sandwich which was very tasty. The ambience we felt was excellent and the reception we got was very friendly. We had a good old chat with the owner and met her lovely persian cat, who was just as friendly. We would highly recommend the Danish Tea Room as they clearly know what good tasting food and service means. I didn't get to try the 'cold coffee' but the tea was piping hot! The cafe must have had a micro climate going on as it was toasty warm on a very cold day...certainly not cold inside as a previous reviewer had commented. We will definitely revisit when we are up this way again. All the best. Tony and Sarah.
