We went to the old bakery tea room for an afternoon hot drink and treat during a trip to the Cotswolds. The restaurant was full when we first arrived so we decided to come back once a table was free and we were not disappointed....More

We can adapt our regular menu where possible. It is fairly limited as cheese and eggs are widely used but can offer good salad and potato options. We have entertained vegans pretty often in the past. Thanks.

Description
Jackie and Alan have owned and run the tearoom for THIRTEEN years, but aim to keep our service and standards high as our reviews indicate. Most of our menu is made here on the premises, including Soups, Dressings, Sauces, Jams and of course all of our cakes and scones.We make everything from basic ingredients, not pre mixes.Our coffee and tea is Fairtrade. The coffee is freshly ground and we use loose leaf tea, with the exception of herbal teas. We aim to source our produce locally as we believe in supporting local suppliers where possible. We also serve Gluten Free meals, including homemade Gluten Free scones, so a cream tea can be had by everyone! Vegetarian and other options are available. We are visited by many customers time and time again, along with strong support from locals. Regular weekday hours are 10.30am to 4.00pm, 10 to 5 on Saturday. Please note we are closed on Sunday and Thursday. Reservations are advised at peak times either by phone, text, e mail or in person.
