A lovely little tea room in Monmouth. A very comfortable atmosphere. We ate a Chicken and Chorizo Pasty along with a Welsh Leek Quiche. Both came with a nice fresh salad. Both were lovely!! Staff were very helpful and friendly. Would definitely recommend!!!

We had seen the reviews on tripadvisor and decided to have lunch here. It's a quirky shop/cafe with friendly staff. Our order was filled quickly and the food was good. We found the overall experience good and would not hesitate to stop here again.

A lovely tearoom with very friendly staff. A really good selection of cakes. It's on two floors which is also a help.

Visiting Monmouth, we were looking for somewhere independent to have some coffee and cake, and this looked a welcoming place. When we went in, we could choose comfy armchairs at the front or dining tables and chairs at the back. We opted for the armchairs,...More

Upstairs Downstairs Tearoom & Cafe is small but perfectly formed. Upstairs is like stepping back in time, elegantly furnished with panelled walls, Italian Leather chairs and stunning chandeliers. Waitress service and freshly made food and home made cakes add to the charm of this lovely Tea Room / Coffee shop and now downstairs, on the ground floor we have opened a more informal cafe with comfortable arm chairs and shabby chic tables & chairs but still beautifully decorated. Upstairs can be booked for anniversary Afternoon teas and special occasions. A little oasis in the heart of the pretty market town of Monmouth.
