Excellent place. We went there twice, experiencing a tea break first and a full Breakfast the second time. The place is very nice and cosy, managed by gentle and friendly personnel. The quality of tea & food was outstanding, all served in a way to let you experience the very traditional British flavor. Average prices. Definitely a place to recommend.

As a strong independent mother of 3 I decided to pop in with a few friends for a well deserved break. I asked for a baguette, which was advertised as a meal in itself (I don't know what you guys class as a meal but it was barely an aperitif. Seriously I've had vol-au-vants larger). My friend ordered a sandwich... More

Ideal place to stop off for a coffee and bacon sandwich, always appears to be busy and the young girls service is extremely good.

Visited Rosey Lea on the 29th December an hour and a half before they closed. The shop was slowly closing down and we were the only ones in there barring another couple. We couldn't wait to have a cuppa and a light lunch as we had heard so many great reviews of the place. It was lovely and cosey inside... More

There are some excellent choices of cakes here and they make a decent latte too. It is reasonably priced and in the centre of town too, so good for a quick stop.

I come here regularly to have lunch, they make the best toasties and amazing cakes. Good value for money and the staff are always friendly, will always return and recommend. Only downside is the seating area is a little small so it can feel crowded and noisy when busy.

Sam's cheese on toast! Yum! Old house with steps leading to front door. Tea house with mismatched furniture and crockery. We sat in the window,snug but enough room for our shopping. Quirky, warm and welcoming.
