This tea room is so lovely and cosy! It feels like home. The owners are really friendly and welcoming. There are gluten free and vegan options. The cakes were great, the milkshake as well. So tasty! Coming back soon.

Fantastic surprise on the highstreet in Littledean. Proper strong coffee in a mug in what feels like someone's front room. Board games available to play for free - perfect for wasting an afternoon! Prices around £1.80 for a mug of coffee. Absolutely brilliant.

We opened for business on 1st September 2014 with a view to creating an environment where families could come and relax together in such a way that they would feel they were visiting 'Grandmas House'. We supplied high quality tea, coffee and home made cakes, with little lunches being available if required. Various games were available to enhance the home feel. On 1st October 2017 we handed the tea room over to a church/community team to enable the business to be turned into a charitable trust. The tea room will be closed from 2nd October to 16th October 2017 for staff training. We hope you will visit the tea room when it opens.
