This place is quaint by name and quaint by nature. We entered on a cold December Sunday to a roaring real fire and quaint old fashioned servitude. Our menu offered the usual teashop choices. We plumped for tea and cheese scones...by were told the scones were off, so instead chose toasted sandwiches.

The tea was severed in a nice pot with china cups and I swear the toasted sandwiches where made in a 1970's style breville style toaster!

The teashop is served by a lovely lady who takes great delight in providing you her her levels of service. Unfortunately, when the place is full, her service takes rather a long time...so go enjoy a leisurely afternoon tea...the prices are very reasonable for this basic product offering...

We were travelling from Lincoln to home and had been looking for somewhere to stop for lunch, the road to this point had been somewhat devoid of places to eat.

As we passed throught the village we saw the teapot sign and there was ample parking on the slip roads by the side of the shop. It was rather late for lunch but as the shop was open for afternoon tea as well the owner had no problem in serving us a good portion of her homemade chicken and ham pie along with a nice dish of vegetables. At £7.50 this was very good value for money.

The shop is cosy and although we were at that point the only people there it did not feel unhomely. We wold recommend this to anyone passing through the village in need of sustanence....or tea and cakes.

I visited Quaintways with my husband for a cup of tea and a slice of cake, however had a problem deciding which cake, scone or tea bread to order, so we both had their smaller afternoon tea which consisted of a selection of sandwiches, scone, two pieces of cake and a pot of tea. Plenty for two hungry people.
The sandwiches were fresh, tasty and filling.The scones were light and more-ish and the gingerbread cake and teabread i would readily have had seconds if i was able to fit it in.
This is a gem of a place, however it is up for sale. I would suggest that you visit before it is gone.

There was a great selection of home made food and all at reasonable prices. The Baileys cheesecake was absolutely amazing! All was served with a cheery smile from the owner. I have a proper pot of tea too. I will visit again if in that area.

We were on our way to Branston for our first wedding anniversary and decided to look for somewhere to stop for lunch. We came across this lovely tea rooms and weren't disappointed . From the moment we walked in we received a warm welcome it was an olde worlde room and backed onto a lovely cottage which you saw when you used the lovely toilets which were beautifully maintained. We ordered an afternoon tea which was out of this world. Everything was freshly made - a lovely selection of sandwiches, delicious warm scones with jam and cream, ginger cake, fruit cake, ginger biscuit and flapjack it was incredible and unlimited cups of coffee and only £8 each. We whole heartedly recommend this lovely place for the food, value for money the staff and the ambience.
