We visited this quaint old-fashioned tearoom in the village of Southill for the first time and were made to feel very welcome by the lovely ladies working there, who were so friendly and helpful. The tearoom is very small and has a tiny village store...More

Lovely meal in the garden - birds singing - flowers blooming. Waited a while to get served then realised you have to order inside. No problem though as service etc was good.

It's nice to know some things don't change. This is one place where we can be sure to get a nice pot of tea, cake or a quick lunchtime meal. Always a pleasure to come here.

My husband and I visited here with our dog today. We were on a dog walk and stumbled upon it, seeing there were other dogs in the garden we thought we'd give it a try as it's sometimes hard to find nice dog friendly places!...More

We were made very welcome and our order was taken promptly. Our jacket potatoes were absolutely delicious, one of the best I have ever had! Lovely vintage crockery and surroundings. My only disappointment was the cakes, we went for scones with jam and cream. Wasn't...More

Tasty, but incredibly poor value take away afternoon tea. Not even jam or cream with the scones or tea. Had a takeout as illness stopped the visit. We were asked to pay rather than rearrange.More

Thank you for taking the time to post your 1st ever Tripadvisor review. I feel it only right though to address some of your brief comments. Afternoon Tea is pre-prepared with fresh ingredients. It is not defrosted & served to you like some high street...More

Please what is the price for afternoon tea?

Response from DAHopper | Reviewed this property |
I think it was about £13.50 per person but not completely sure. You have to pre-order it too so maybe worth ringing them.
Are you open on Wednesdays in November for 4 or 6 people

The tea room used to be the Southill Post Office until it was closed down a few years ago. It is a jewel. We pride ourselves on home baked cakes and scones and hope that you enjoy them just as much as we do.
