A great little tea shop with all the charm and comfort of being at Grannies. The staff were first class and the whole experience was wonderful. Can't wait to go again.

Really first class cakes and coffee. Also super scones, sweet and savoury. And excellent snack meals like cheese and tuna melt on a cheese scone, with fresh salad. Service was very good, very friendly and efficient. Very highly recommended!

We had breakfast at Rosie Lea on 21/06. The one member of staff was single handedly, taking orders, preparing drinks, delivering food and taking payments from the entire cafe. We had to wait about 15 mins to place our order for breakfast. Bit by bit,...More

We had a gorgeous afternoon tea here. The scones were warmed and very fluffy. Just perfect after a long cycle ride!

The service, food and establishment were very good. What we were not impressed with was the lack of menu suitable for children and the cost - quite expensive for what it was.

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.

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!
