“Cream tea to die for!”

Afternoon tea is one of those meals that we often eschew in the pace of modern life, so it is really nice to find a hostelry who wants to reintroduce the tradition.

Often, afternoon teas are mediocre to say the least, but Beckworth's version of nicely prepared sandwiches (they vary daily) which can even be prepared on gluten-free bread, cakes and scones, with a choice of teas all served on an attractive slate is well worth the typical wait in a queue... actually, unless you know the cycles, you are likely to queue at most times of the day, that despite having a large restaurant and the similar sized Conservatory.

Pleasant staff, enjoyable food, no-rush attitude makes this a worthy detour in the Wellingborough/Kettering area of Northamptonshire... and do not forget the fabulous farmshop as you leave; the butchers is well worth spending time selecting finest quality, local produce.

No bookings, but a worthy winner of the Food Award for Northamptonshire.

The food and service at Beckworths has to be commended, the owners got this restaurant/garden center/food produce just right. The perfect place to go and unwind with friends and family over lunch or afternoon tea. They also sell precooked meals which are really good. They also sell cakes, veggies and items for your home. This area was in dire need of a good lunch venue and you get that at Beckworths! Purrs to you all and keep up the good nosh =^_^=

Beckworths is part tea shop / restaurant, part deli, part garden centre; an unusual mix but an interesting experiment. Locals seem to flock here for good food to eat and fine food to cook themselves. We had brunch which was well cooked and tasty, if slightly expensive for the area. Still overall a good experience which we will certainly revisit!
