Description: Based in Brockenhurst on the Brookley Road, our bakery and tea house remains true to the ethics at the heart of the Rosie Lea brand, using locally produced New Forest ingredients to create high quality baked produce, keeping our carbon footprint down and remaining as ecologically friendly as possible.During a visit to the bakery you can expect to enjoy creations containing local eggs, flour, meats & cheeses, locally produced jam and locally crafted chocolates. In addition to supporting existing New Forest businesses, Rosie Lea also provides a comprehensive and varied “free from” menu aiming to give those with specific dietary requirements as good a selection as those without.All our produce is baked on site ad can also be beautifully packaged and taken away.The Tea House runs from early morning breakfast serving a good choice from menu from the humble muffin, to the house specialty “morning Tea”, a full continental breakfast served on a three tiered china cake stand, both glamorous and satisfying for hungry tums! Throughout the remainder of the day Rosie Lea will be serving up light lunches, full sumptuous afternoon teas and a variety of cakes and baked goodies, and of course it wouldn’t be Rosie Lea if they didn’t serve you on their beautiful vintage china!

“Gluten Free Heaven in the New Forest”
Reviewed 18 April 2014 via mobile

Fantastic afternoon tea with the incredible benefit of being able to have almost anything on the menu as a gluten free version. I no longer feel like an outcast. As good as you could hope for.

“Best cakes I have tasted for 'donkey's years,!”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

Stopped off for a light lunch - very tasty spicy potato soup and homemade bread and delicious cake with various fruits and marzipan inside - warmed and served with clotted cream - good job I was sharing otherwise it would not have been a light lunch.

“A lunch visit with disabled children”
Reviewed 11 April 2014

We turned up today with two disabled children,one of them was in a chair.
The staff was very helpful, made us comfortable, one of the guests gave up their table for us.
I had delicious gluten free cake with decaff coffee and non-dairy milk!
My friend couldn`t finish her huge chocolate cake, and one of the children had a yummee looking
special sandwich. The prices are surprisingly low, lower then famous chains.
I will be back as soon as possible.

Delicious and fresh afternoon tea served with a smile and fantastic value to boot. A really nice place that I would definitely recommend and it's nice to meet a restaurant owner who clearly enjoys their job.

Reviewed 11 April 2014

Brilliant service, lovely outdoor area in the sun, and amazing lunches and teas, all for a very reasonable price. If you are in the area, it's the obvious choice!
