After a lovely stroll along the towpath we decided to stop for a break. We got a great welcome despite arriving after 4 and were served the best tray brakes with tea and coffee I have had in a long time....fresh and full of flavour.

The tea rooms sit right on Scarva main street with the Portadown to Newry tow-path behind them. For anyone walking or cycling on the tow-path the tea rooms could offer a pleasant lunch or coffee.

Very popular stop-off point for cyclists and walkers on the Portadown-Newry towpath. Picturesque village and excellent coffee and food while you study the extensive range of tourism brochures on one of the most scenic spots in Ulster.

A lovely little cafe with inside and outside seating under a canopy overlooking beautiful gardens, dogs are welcome. Well positioned for cyclists and walkers on the canal tow path. Serves lunches and cakes and the usual teas and coffee. Scarva is a pretty village worth a visit.

We stopped here for coffee and I must admit the tray bakes and cakes are first class. The interior of the little tearoom is interesting and decor up to date. However the lady who served us was most unpleasant and unwelcoming. I must admit that spoilt it for the group that I was with. Wouldn't be back in a hurry,... More

First Class coffee shop with friendly and helpful staff. Well situated for walkers on the canal tow path. Scarva is a very attractive little village with floral displays and the Visitor Centre is well placed for the passer by.
