A pot of loose-leaf tea at Belinda's Tea Room in Arundel
Fancy a cuppa in this 16th century barn where tea has been served since the 1920s – a stone’s-throw from the picture-book mediaeval castle? The scones here are something special, and they let you choose whether it’s whipped or clotted cream…
Fancy a Cuppa? reviews 50 places across the UK for a good cup of tea or coffee and a nice piece of cake, a scone or other local delicacy. This is not a ’50 best’ tea rooms or cafes guide. Rather it includes places that have a story to tell.
Lots of options if you’re here for tea. You can get a good, strong pot of loose-leaf tea (Ceylon, Chinese Black or English Breakfast), but they’ll also do you a tea bag if you really want…There’s cream tea (two scones, cream, excellent jam made by a local farm and a pot of tea) for £5.80, but you can pay extra for whipped cream, or a bit less if you just want jam and butter. There’s a savoury tea with cheese scones; or an Afternoon Tea with sandwiches too (but that’s only for two people, at the reasonable charge of £14). Excellent quality – scones and cakes all baked in-house. Fantastic cheese scones served in a Fresh Savoury Tea with cream cheese and celery. Great variety of cakes: the rock cakes; apple and mince pies; and Victoria Sponge looked the nicest. The tea is good but worth paying the 20p extra and getting loose-leaf. Home-made jams and chutney for sale too. – Revisited in November 2012.
