This is a little hidden gem of a tearoom. It's not cheap but the afternoon tea is amazing. We had The vegetarian Vera Lynn which is very filling, the scones are first class. You don't have to have tea, (my daughters choose vanilla milkshake and hot chocolate.) Brewing the tea by the sand timer adds to the experience though.Service is fab and all the pictures,ornaments and nicnacs transport you straight to the 1940s. Park in the swimming pool car park, walk past the beautiful church and pop into the museum next door if you have time. Love this place.

My mum was visiting from London so thought I would treat her to afternoon tea and we wasn’t disappointed!

She loved the atmosphere, the decor, the food was great and tea was proper tea with a little egg timer for perfection!

Well worth a visit for everyone!

This place has great ambiance and the staff are friendly enough but it misses a trick. We had the Vera Lynn afternoon tea - the sandwiches were plain cheese or cream cheese and cucumber - they were far more exciting on the menu! Didn’t offer a choice of scone and the cakes were small and rather boring. They even charged for a second pot of tea! Never had that happen before! It’s better value to have two scones and a piece of cake.
Such a shame as the place is quaint!

we found this lovely little cafe by accident. Once inside you are transported back to the forties (not that i’m old enough to remember them!). The decor, the music. The porcelain cups, loose leaf tea, cakes, scones, sandwiches. I had the Betty Grable cream tea and my husband had the Lana Turner Latte. Lovely cup of tea with and egg timer to make sure it’s the perfect strength. Genius! The staff are lovely. If I ever go back to Kettering, I would definitely make it my business to drop into this marvellouslesly run little gem.
