'Best Welsh rarebit I have ever had! Friendly and good value for money.' — TripAdvisor review

The Tea Shop provides fresh, English seasonal food made on the premises and served by our friendly staff. The Welsh rarebit is what we are famous for, but we also offer a selection of homemade soups, sandwiches and salads. Check out the daily specials on the chalk board.

If it's afternoon tea that you are after, we offer a sumptuous selection of cakes, mouth-watering creams teas and hot desserts.

'Brilliant day out. Chocolate cake at the Tea Shop is a must!' — Facebook review

Our history

The Tea Shop building was originally used as a showroom for the Compton Pottery, which was established on this site by Mary Watts in 1901. The pottery became well known for its large ornamental pots, bird baths, garden ornaments and sundials. Famous stockists included Liberty of London.

Today the Tea Shop retains much of its original charm, and we pride ourselves on offering freshly prepared food in a friendly and unique environment.
