We were staying at the Trusty Servant pub just across the green from this shop, and went in there to get some batteries. Never having been before, we weren't prepared for the wonderful range of products on sale there.

Minstead Village Tea Shop is a charming place to pop in for a cup of delicious coffee and a slice of cake. They have a great rage of local produce and freshly made sandwiches, salads and other tasty treats. From the moment you approach the wooden gate that takes you from the Village Green to the garden of the Village... More
