Much of our menu is made here on the premises, including Soups, Dressings, Sauces, Jams and of course all of our cakes and scones.We make everything from basic ingredients, not pre prepared mixes.Our coffee and tea is Fairtrade. The coffee is freshly ground and we use loose leaf tea, with the exception of herbal teas. We aim to source our produce locally as we believe in supporting local suppliers where possible.We also provide a wide selection of Gluten Free meals, including homemade Gluten Free scones, so a cream tea can be had by everyone!Vegetarian options are always available. We are visited by many customers time and time again, along with strong support from locals who live in the town. Regular hours are 10am to 4.00pm (5pm Saturdays). Please note we are closed on Sundays and Thursdays.

We were only visiting the area for an hour. Called into the Tearooms. The waiter was very quirky and gave excellent service. We had fresh scones and Jam with coffees they were absolutely delicious. if we are ever in the area again we will definitely pay them a visit.

This was our first visit. Staff very welcoming and friendly despite being run off their feet. They tried not to turn anyone away. The food was delicious. If you visit Stow you must visit.

Hello Margaret F
It has indeed been a busy season to date. I do try to encourage people to book in advance, and when we are full, I will offer to keep the next available table. Pleased that you enjoyed your visit and even though we were incredibly busy, we were able to keep our service standards, and the food quality. Pleasure to have met you and we hope that net time you are up this way you will call in and visit again. Many thanks. Alan & Jackie.

We visited for the first time on Friday 22nd August. Great value and tasty food. We had a light lunch followed by a cream tea, with homemade scones, all delicious. Will definitely be returning.

This tea rooms/small restaurant is a delight. Tucked away from the main streets in Stow, it could be difficult to find, were it not for the signage outside on the footpath and it's reputation. Everything is well managed and crafted, from the superb home made cakes, to the delicious lunches, great tea, hot chocolate,coffee and a host of soft drinks. The place has a family feel and one instantly feels at home and cared for by the owners Jackie and Alan. Definitely a must if you are visiting Stow on the Wold.

So glad we took note of the reviews on Trip Advisor and booked a table. We took friends who were staying the weekend and found the food was of excellent quality. Service was wonderful and we were never rushed, we will defiantly return.

Hi Brian D
We're always happy to book tables for guests so pleased you were able to find us. Thank you for your lovely comments - we never rush people, even when we are busy, as we are focused on enabling people to take their time and enjoy their visit, rather than getting them in and out quickly for a few bucks more! Look forward to seeing you again. Best wishes. Alan & Jackie
