Stopped here this afternoon with around 20 other people after a walk. There was a slight panic from the staff but they dealt with the situation admirably. The food and drinks were excellent and at a very reasonable price. Wonderful views from the terrace where we had our refreshments. Will definitely return.

Stopped in after a tour of house. The coffee and cake were a hit with our group of family members and the guy on duty was so friendly and engaging. The menu looked interesting and with a good choice.

The Blackwell Tea Rooms is a little gem and we always recommend it when anyone asks for somewhere for lunch.
