Best place for tea and scones in the village! Scones home made the same day with real yellow cream. Tea made with real tea leaves so better taste. Quiet ,calm and cheerful service in sunny garden. Say no more!

There is also a stunning wood shop and gallery 50 yards down the road from the tea shop. We went there first then descended on the tea room. Sat outside in their beautiful and very... More

Abbotsbury is full of tea rooms and all of them seem to be good. I was in this one recently and had a lovely bowl of soup with bread for lunch. Everything is very fresh. It accommodates quite a few people and there is a garden out the back if it is a nice day. Their quiche and salad seems... More

Stopped off here for tea and a scone whilst on a walk. The scone was fresh and delicious and the cakes looked impressive too.

Cheery staff served us with tasty home cooked quiche and salad plus a bowl of steaming hot carrot and corriander soup. Only minus was that the bread was a little dry. Otherwise, a good lunch.

Handy location though parking was not easy the day we chose, a lovely sunny day so everyone was in Abbotsbury! I chose a pasty which, sorry to say was not very exciting and my husband had a very good freshly made sandwich. Everything was served on fine old fashioned china by a very friendly young waitress. The best thing we... More

Excellent cakes, a fine selection of teas, good snacks, proper service and a nice environment. There is nothing particularly distinctive about this place but all the pieces fit together and work for a more than adequate result.
