We stopped off here for lunch based on the reviews on this site and sadly won't be going back, even though its local. Service was slow, to be fair we did follow in a big group of cyclists, though equally plenty of staff around. I ordered homemade quiche and salad, my wife jacket potato with well-done bacon and beans. I... More

Hi Mike, I'm so sorry you felt disappointed by your visit, but I cannot understand when this happened as we have been closed for over a month now for our winter break, and our last big group of cyclists was in November ??? As there are only ever two staff - a cook and barista/ waitress - it can take... More

Popped in here for a coffee and to try a slice of cake and was not disappointed! The carrot cake I had was the best carrot cake I've ever had. A lovely place to sit and relax with friends and family, very friendly cosy atmosphere. I will definitely be back!

I knew it as the old post office when I lived in Elam and what a lovely surprise to find it had become the most gorgeous tea room. It is indeed very cosy but the food is the winner! Having holidayed in UK for 5 weeks I finally found the best fruit scones ever, which is my criteria for a... More

I live VERY close to the tea rooms and I always take friends who visit here when we go for a walk around our lovely village. They have a range of yummy cakes, speciality teas and even a refreshing ice tea when its hot like last week. They have a useful booster seat, kids toys and enough space in the... More

Dawn very kindly enabled me to hold a special lunch event here, and it was outstanding. She and Beverley went out of their way to make everything perfect, with little touches that made us all feel so welcome. The food--both savoury and sweet--was delicious, and reflect her great skill as a baker. All my guests were full of praise and... More

The Cosy Tea Rooms is aptly named as it gives off a feeling of comfort (furnishings), warmth (from the staff) and relaxation (drinking tea). This place is a great stop not just for walkers exploring the countryside around Elham but for anyone passing through. There is plenty of car parking either in the High Street or in The Square by...
