We popped in here for morning coffee, having read some great reviews on TA and it looked welcoming. There are a few outside tables, but most seating is inside, which is where we sat. The man serving the tables was very brusque, so we decided...More

We would have liked to have eaten here but the staff were so rude and unhelpful that we went elsewhere.

Great for tea and light meals in the heart of the new forest in Brockenhurst. Lovely village with quaint Ford and shops. Two great hotels close by and approximately 10miles to Lymington

Lovely, lovely, lovely! A good stop off during a day on our bikes. Polite and friendly service. Nice looking little village but didn't have time to explore. When we pop back to explore some more, we'll know where to get coffee and cake!

Not my first visit to Rosie Lea's not by a long shot. And never does she fail to disappoint. While her quaint ambience and strong list of teas are no doubt equally strong selling points, her main attraction has to be her cakes. Homemade..always fresh..always...More

Hi, I'm planning an afternoon tea for a group of 8 on a Saturday or Sunday - I guess you don't do bookings? Is it realistic to find space for us on a Sat or Sun? If so what sort of time would we be most likely to get seated? Many Thanks.

Can't speak for the owner but it didn't take long for a seat to come available when we visited, fairly quick turnaround
Hi ! Do you sell the tea to take home? Specifically the Almond and Cherry? Thank you.

Based in Brockenhurst on the Brookley Road, our bakery and tea house remains true to the ethics at the heart of the Rosie Lea brand, using locally produced New Forest ingredients to create high quality baked produce, keeping our carbon footprint down and remaining as ecologically friendly as possible.During a visit to the bakery you can expect to enjoy creations containing local eggs, flour, meats & cheeses, locally produced jam and locally crafted chocolates. In addition to supporting existing New Forest businesses, Rosie Lea also provides a comprehensive and varied “free from” menu aiming to give those with specific dietary requirements as good a selection as those without.All our produce is baked on site ad can also be beautifully packaged and taken away.The Tea House runs from early morning breakfast serving a good choice from menu from the humble muffin, to the house specialty “morning Tea”, a full continental breakfast served on a three tiered china cake stand, both glamorous and satisfying for hungry tums! Throughout the remainder of the day Rosie Lea will be serving up light lunches, full sumptuous afternoon teas and a variety of cakes and baked goodies, and of course it wouldn’t be Rosie Lea if they didn’t serve you on their beautiful vintage china!
