We traditionally go here as a family to enjoy ourselves and have a lovely luncheon. I had the jacket potato with cheddar and beans. It was a delight. Will go back.

Had a very nice lunch and cream tea. The homemade soup was delicious, the ploughmans was huge, the rarebit was delicious!

We needed lunch, so where better than the New Forest Perfumery. We decided on Dorset Rarebit with salad followed by coffee. We were able to sit in the courtyard in the sun, such a pleasant quiet spot. We really enjoyed that visit.

We decided to stop here as it looked a nice tea room to try, we weren't disappointed at all. The only down side is that at the back in the garden smoking is not allowed and there is only one sign inside to say you cannot. It's not the no smoking that I was annoyed at but the embarrassment when... More

Have been here many times and have never been disappointed, the food is lovely and the cakes are fab. The staff are lovely too and if you are lucky to get a seat outside it is very nice to spend the afternoon relaxing with a nice piece of cake and a coffee

Afternoon tea(at about £11.95pp) must be ordered 24 hours in advance. We hadn't booked but created our own by ordering a different sandwich pp and sharing. Good choice of coffee in cafetieres too. Scones were big so we shared 1 between 2.

When we arrived the tea rooms were quite busy, but we were able to get a table in the sunny courtyard. We had a very tasty Dorset Rarebit with side salad, followed by a cup of coffee. All very nice in the peaceful courtyard too.
