This is a quaint tea room with home made food and a lovely friendly ambiance. It's a little pricey but worth it.

I really enjoy the salmon sandwiches here, lovely granary bread and delicious helping of salmon in each bite. The chocolate torte is absolutely amazing. It is a little expensive - but it is worth it for a treat.

Small cup of House Chocolate £3.50 hmmm? Latte £2.40 fair enough. Now, 2 pieces of carrot cake £9.90, how on earth can they justify £4.95 per slice, daylight robbery! Disgraceful! Hope they go into administration because I won't be returning and I am a regular...More

Situated in a beautiful Georgian building in the Upper High Street of this historic market town on the edge of Bucks and Oxon, our Thame shop offers plentiful seating, free WiFi, comfy sofas, window seating with a view of the town and a lovely mini-mezzanine which can be used for meetings, groups and parties. Relax and enjoy breakfast, lunch and coffee in comfortable surroundings or select from our wonderful take away menu at any time of the day. Nigel Rumsey's thirty years experience as a Chef and Patissier provided the inspiration and depth of knowledge needed to become a Master Chocolatier of distinction. Nigel and his wife, Mary, opened Rumsey's after being inspired by the film 'Chocolat', their aim was to provide a wonderful sumptuous environment in which to sit, eat lunch, drink coffee, tea or hot chocolate.
