The Old Bakehouse Tea Rooms – Beaulieu




Whether it’s wild ponies that push your buttons or classic cars that drive you wild, a cuppa in this former New Forest bake-house is a great way to complete your day. Shame they aren’t allowed to use the wonderful old baking ovens that still line the walls.

Fancy a Cuppa? Book CoverFancy a Cuppa?

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.

Read the full description of this book on the books page and if you like what you see you can buy it from there too.


If you like a big slab of cake, this is the place for you.  Many of the usual sorts: Victoria Sponge; lemon drizzle; coffee & walnut; or try their Apricot Cake (moist and tasty). Cream teas good value: £4.80 for 2 big scones, jam, clotted cream AND butter.  Even old favourites like lardy cake on the menu. All baked 6 miles away in Lymington.
