Sunny Sunday afternoon and arrived to almost every table,inside and out, covered in used crockery waiting to be cleared. We had to add to the pile on another table to clear one to sit at. Coffee was fine but I have got soya milk and...More

We came on a visit with the kids and they ordered a sandwich each and my husband and I shared an afternoon tea. Oh my goodness, the best sandwiches I think I have ever had! Beautiful views and lovely staff. Highly recommended

We chose this cafe because we wanted to sit outside (and not on the street) for lunch last week in sunny weather. The stairs down to both the inside cafe and further down to the terrace were quite steep but, for the able-bodied, well worth...More

Couldn’t fault today’s visit to The Winding House with our Canadian friends. Warmly welcomed, and given great window seat table overlooking the cliff railway and glorious views over Bridgnorth and the river, we were soon tucking into delicious finger sandwiches with various scrumptious fillings, and...More

We visited this tea room while on a day trip to Bridgnorth. It sits above the cliff railway and would be easy to miss. We sat outside in an area that was strictly non-smoking and enjoyed a delicious lunch. Service was excellent and the staff...More

A charming cafe/ restaurant very much hidden from the casual visitor's eye at the top of the Bridgnorth Cliff Railway. As the name implies, it sits alongside and below the winding house for the railway and glimpses can be had of the machinery in action...More

Visited this lovely little tea room and sat outside on the patio. The stairs are very steep both upon entering and going down to the patio. You need to give your table number upon ordering. Big pot of tea for two and lemon drizzle £7.10....More

My friend and I treat ourselves to 'prosecco' afternoon tea here for our birthdays and love it! Fantastic view from the outdoor terrace in particular and wonderful to be able to see the winding mechanism from the funicular railway.

A delightful Victorean inspired licensed tea room with a beautiful garden terrace and glorious views over the River Severn and Low Town. Serving light lunches, morning and afternoon tea seven days a week (Please note that we only use fresh ingredients delivered daily, therefore it is always best to book at least 24hrs in advance for Afternoon Teas to avoid disappointment. Due to the unique nature and quaint charm of our property our kitchen is very small and this may cause delays during busy periods however we will make sure that it was worth the wait!! You can watch the Cliff Railway operating and see the winding house for the railway in action from the tea rooms. We offer exceptional service and food made fresh on the premises using local ingredients, make this place a must see on a visit to Bridgnorth.
