The era of the 1940s is remembered with great fondness by many. At Lady Scarlett's Tea Parlour in Ventnor, we have recreated that atmosphere through our vintage 1940s themed ambience, based on how life would be in WW2. Families can bring loved ones living with dementia to remember the old days. We promote healthy eating and simple portions, which is all about going back to the basics. We also support Help for Heroes and are available to hire for occasions like birthday parties and other special celebrations. You also get to enjoy a wonderful view of the beach while dining. What are you waiting for? Visit our popular tea parlour today and prepare to be amazed!
