Leicestershire is currently subject to tier 4 restrictions meaning that we are unfortunately unable to serve food and drink for you to enjoy with us on site at the Tearoom. We are however remaining open for take away and shop purchases Thursday through to Saturday 10am - 2pm. You can either pop to the hatch and we will get your items for you, or should you wish to browse the shop you may enter at the rear (we will be limited numbers at any one time). We are continuing to offer our afternoon teas, individually packaged to take away and are working on special Valentines, Mother's day and Easter editions of this this for you to enjoy. We also have our take away menu which whilst reduced from our normal offering, we're continuing to mix up the selection allowing us to give more diversity across your visits.
Once we're able to re-open once again there will of course be some changes to our day to day operations. Many of these changes are behind the scenes and relate to how we the staff operate, outlined below however are some changes for you, our customer to be aware of;
ENTRANCE to Tea Room and garden seating area will be at the rear, there will be a designated waiting area before we will take you to your seats.
EXIT with be via the front door allowing a flow of one way traffic through the Tea Room.
HAND WASHING facilities and hand sanitisation points will be available both outside and inside the Tea Room. We kindly ask all customers to sanitise their hands regularly and before entering any common / seating area.
TABLE SERVICE will continue, as before we will come to you at your table to take orders and will now also take payments at the table.
FACE COVERINGS must be worn when entering and exiting and at any others time where not seated at your table.
BOOKING is not essential however is strongly advised to avoid disappointment. Whilst we have extended our outdoor seating area we have decreased the number of tables inside in order to ensure effective distancing. Please be aware, we may ask you to be a little flexible with the time of your booking as we work to stagger the arrival of different groups.
RULE OF 6 in place. Groups of more than 6 are not allowed as per national rules/guidelines.
TAKE AWAY collections will continue from the hatch (please queue to the left of the window and not across the front exit door), shop purchases can still be made from here or you are welcome to come inside should you wish to have a browse (numbers will be limited)

On behalf of myself and the team we kindly ask that you follow our new safety guidelines as well as those issued by the government. If you live in any extended lock down areas, have been feeling unwell, or exposed to someone that displays symptom’s of Covid-19, then of course please postpone your visit to us. We’re working hard to keep you safe, please do the same for us .
Formalities aside, we can’t wait to see you! We know it can feel a little unusual but we’re all so excited to be seeing you and will be doing our upmost to make you feel comfortable on your visit.
