“Early Afternoon Tea!!!”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

I phoned The Old Creamery last Wednesday to book our Afternoon Tea, Helen asked could we come @ 1 o clock, a little early you would think for afternoon tea!!! Now the table setting is very pretty with the china cups,embroidered tablecloth, tea strainer,cubed sugar, flowers (pity they weren't fresh) but I did think the actual food did let them down. It wasn't the requisite afternoon tea fare, size wise or the sandwich fillings, a bit more your local cafe than traditional afternoon tea!!The food was nice and fresh, staff were friendly, though after we left I got a phone call from one of the members of staff to know were we keeping our appointment, would have preferred that time!!!

“Have to return for afternoon tea”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

Stopped for coffee and a piece of cake. It was great to get a pot of coffee. Cakes were delicious. But everyone was having afternoon tea and I they looked delicious. This is a hidden gem just a stroll from the Main Street in Adare. Follow the road to the left of the village hall. It is an oasis of calm when the village is very busy or after a couple of hours browsing through all the stores on the Main Street

I made a trip to this little gem for the first time today and what a pleasure it was!! I booked Afternoon Tea as a birthday treat for my Aunt and it was just fantastic. The selection of food was fabulous and so fresh with top ups of tea and coffee without a problem. The young girl in the tea rooms was extremely pleasant and helpful and even though we were chatting for quite some time we were never rushed once. To top it off there is an AMAZING gift shop to browse with some really fabulous gifts and household items at great prices and presently there is some great discounts as they make way for their Christmas stock - I can't wait to return!! The lady in the gift shop, Marcella, was so friendly and helpful and even gave us a taste of their homemade fudge which is divine! This was my first visit here but it certainly won't be my last!! Well done to all involved, I will be recommending a visit to many!!
