We stopped off here for a quick coffee break, and found it purely by luck because it is right by the exit to the town car park. They were able to make my latte with soya milk, and were aware from that that I needed milk-free biscuits. The coffee was well-made, and all their cakes looked delicious even though we... More

I visited the Lyndhurst tea house not so long ago, as I used to visit weekly due to living in the area. The food is okay, I didn't enjoy as much as previously but nothing to complain about. I met a lovely young girl who served me, but I felt tension throughout. Through, who I believe to be the owner,... More

We live locally and always head for this tea room in Lyndhurst. A special mention must go to the scones which are just the right size and freshly made that day. The service is also always good and always prompt.

6 of us called into this lovely tea room as we were wandering through Lyndhurst. The very helpful staff found us a table straight away, even though it was extremely busy. The room is fairly large, and they do manage to get a fair few tables in, but even when it was full to capacity, we never felt squeezed in... More

Loads of room here and the staff are very friendly. They have a good selection of really delicious cakes and a great variety of different teas. The nice thing was that we did not feel hurried or under pressure....we just sat back and enjoyed our tea and cake.

Good food, only downside was a limited breakfast menu, my daughter doesn't like a cooked breakfast so the only choice for her was toast.
