We had heard great things about Moreton Tea Rooms, and today we sampled it for the first time - we shall certainly be returning. My husband and I both had chicken escalope with mushroom sauce and vegetables - it was exceptionally good! A really tasty dish. The tea rooms themselves are delightful, and there are some really interesting old pictures... More

On a good day, we ate in the garden and the food was plenty. The service is slower than normal, but you don't go here to rush.

Visited Moreton Tearooms on Sunday 12th February with my wife and son. This cafe is a little delight. My family had a Dorset cream tea each and I had a slice of coffee and walnut cake. We each had tea to wash it down. The cafe is set in the village of Moreton which is somewhat off the beaten track... More

You won't be disappointed if you go out of your way to sample the cooked breakfast. Great ingredients simple and sublime. The tea rooms are themselves worthy of mention regarding the association with Lawrence of Arabia, visit to find out more.

Last day of holiday, fell in with the doors for a feed before leaving. Clearly very popular, with good reason. Well fed we left for on the looong drive home

Excellent local food and drink available in this delightful venue, which once served as the village school. Lots of memorabilia on display. The village itself is delightful, offering a lovely walk over a broad stream where the local children pale and fish. The Church hosted the funeral of T E Lawrence and Lawrence's grave can be visited in the Churchyard... More

Lovely tasty food, special afternoon tea, a savoury platter and sweet platter full to the brim. Tea and coffee on tap if needed, but our pot was big! Warm savoury scones, yum cream cheese and delicious home made chutney. Too much to eat so we were given a tray to take what we couldn't fit in home to munch later.... More

Our previous coffee visits were fine but lunch was not! Very basic menu "because we are not properly open" on 29th Dec.! We sat with coats on and asked if the radiator beside us was adjustable, to be met with a surly 'it should be alright. The schoolroom breakfast had been available from 11am and probably cooked then, and at... More

Kate S, Owner at Moreton Tea Rooms, responded to this review

I'm sorry you had an unsatisfactory visit to the Tearooms last Thursday - a day on which, in fact, I was not working. Our shortened opening hours serving brunch, sandwiches and cakes have worked well over this and several previous Christmas periods. We have tried to advertise the restricted menu but I'm sorry if it was not to your liking.... More
