Kenchester Tea Rooms

If you're feeling peckish, why not pop in?

The smell of real home cooking wafts from the Tea Rooms at all times of day – elevenses, lunch, afternoon tea – there is always something on the menu which will titillate your palate.

On Carvery days the Tea Rooms fills up quickly – so if possible, ring to make a booking. Incidentally the scones with jam and cream are legendary!

We would love you to make a booking
