Reviewed 7 July 2014

Passing through Staindrop needing a cup of coffee, came upon this delightful teashop. What a find, scones were excellent, served the traditional English way warm, with fresh cream and jam nice one. Husband and Son had the toasted teacake and crumpets, once again excellent. Thankyou to the girls. Will certainly make a de-tour to go back again, and try their lunches. Well worth a visit.

Charming Tea Shop in lovely surroundings, and well hosted by attentive staff. Lovely fresh pot of tea, with a well presented and plenty-full ham sandwhich was very enjoyable.

The environment is clan, well maintained and comfortable and nothing was to much trouble, I often pass through Staindrop so may well be calling again soon.

I wrote a critical review for this place in February. We heard it had been refurbished.
So we decided to stop and go in again just to see. Pleasantly surprised!!
Much improved, it has been painted and cleaned.The hall way is much nicer with a few pictures on the walls.The disgusting smells has gone and the curtain removed.
All smells fresher and looks cleaner and is much more inviting.
The staff are really friendly and the food was delicious.
It was busy and there was a real buzz about the tea room.
Although the toilet area needs updating and hot water would be nice.
In general it is a place we would be happy to eat in again and again.
Well done management.

Popped back into this place today, we were remembered by the staff, who were as friendly as before. Looks like some decorating and improvements have been made to the bathroom. Again we thoroughly enjoyed our visit again
