My husband and I regularly visit Dearne Lea for their afternoon tea. At £7.50 per person it is the best value for money afternoon tea we have ever come across. Everything is homemade and is top quality. We sing their praises all day long. Having read the review from the previous 'afternoon tea' visitor who gave it a '1' rating,... More

Afternoon tea here, voucher bought as a ruby wedding anniversary present. This was so disappointing. You smelt the place before you saw it, not pleasant and Im a country lass. Got out the car and had to walk through runny cow muck everywhere, luckily I was wearing boots! Runny cow muck across the driveway, its also the farmyard road. Walked... More

Never had a bad meal here, only issue is the main meals could be a bit cheaper, but I suppose you get what you pay for, except £7-£8 for Pie. and chips is a bit expensive for me :) Nice Ice-cream though!

Had 2 coffee's, child's orange juice, cake and 2 ice creams. The food on offer looked great and all reasonably priced. Lovely s... More

Christmas Eve lunchtime and I really fancy a breakfast out of town . One thing for sure I've never been disappointed at Dearne Lea. We arrive just before twelve thirty and my wife secures a seat whilst I place our order. The wooden spoon system works well and we just have time to admire the festive decorations before our lunch...
