On a recommendation from a walking friend, I added Fountains Tea Room to my Derbyshire tour itinerary planned for some dear US friends - for a light snack lunch. What a find! The most natural and friendly ladies in the tearoom were great. The 3 layer 'cake stand' of 1. sandwiches, then 2. scones/cream/strawberry jam, then 3. Super cakes was... More

It was a warm reception we found as we tumbled into the place. The folk who were in there werefriendly and the food we ate was exceptional, especially the oatcakes with cheese and mushrooms. Save space for dessert because the crumble is delicious. it is on a hill just looking out onto the old well, across from the play area.

We visited the fountain tea room after a lovely walk around Cromford and black rocks. We had a great welcome, the lady sat and chatted to us for a while. The cakes we had were beautiful, ive never tasted such a delicious fruit flapjack and the prices were very reasonable. Our dog was made very welcome...we will definitely visit again,

The food is really tasty and well presented. The home made stilton and walnut scones with soft cheese spread are to... More

Very reasonably priced good quality breakfast selections, much enjoyed. They do decaf and speciality teas, coffees too which is refreshing Nicely decorated and clean. Outdoor area for those sunnier days, situated in the lovely village of Bonsall

We were staying in Bonsall for the weekend, 7 of us on a reunion. We had breakfast here each day. Great menu, lovely coffee and cracking food. We all enjoyed it very much. The service was smiling, friendly and efficient.

Spent a lovely hour or so walking round the village visiting all the well dressings (Derbyshire is famous for these and it's definitely worth a visit if you've not already done this). The Fountain is in a very good location in the village and although there were quite a few customers, the service was excellent, as was the coffee and... More

5 of us visited this cafe with the dog on a lovely sunny day so we sat outside. The coffee was good, ice cream was really nice, and the cakes are amazing! One of us had a fruity flapjack which was lovely - huge slice though! And I had a piece of dandelion and burdock chocolate cake. Again it was... More
