We have been coming here for a number of years now. It is always a great to see the fantastic views. Very reasonably priced food and drink. Particularly like the Matilda Cake! Nice friendly staff. A real hidden gem and well worth a visit by any tearoom enthusiast.

Lovely stay, very good service from the staff. Excellent breakfasts! Wonderful views! We had a some dinner outside overlooking the scenery, just pure bliss! Beds were comfy, the only thing I would say is that the showers weren't that brilliant and maybe a bit of paint needed in bedrooms. But the lounge/dining room were fantastic!

The Ridgeway is 87 miles of path across the Berkshire downs. It just so happens that the Court Hill Centre is the perfect place to... More

I have visited the Court Hill Centre Cafe several items recently and had very good coffee, lunches and afternoon tea.The choice of cakes makes it difficult to choose but all are delicious. It is particularly nice on a sunny afternoon when you can sit out in the garden, however on cold winter days there is a wood burner regularly stoked... More

We picked up a leaflet at the Wantage tourist board and it looked good. We were not disappointed. It is a hostel for walkers etc. but they have a lovely little café. We had a cake, scone and coffee, all very reasonably priced and good quality. We sat outside and it was lovely and peaceful. We had a short walk... More

I arrived soaked after a hard day on the Ridgeway and was instantly given tea and a key to a nice room with a heater. The staff could not have been more helpful and welcoming. The fire was put on and I was given a lovely meal of fish and chips, plus a tasty breakfast in the morning. This place... More
