What a great place to have something to eat the food is all cooked to order and delicious but the man serving had a great sense of humour and made our visit very enjoyable. The home made scones looked amazing.

What a surprise - and a real find! Delicious scones, tea in mismatched china cups, and a funky, cheerful vibe.

We were looking for a light lunch while driving through the New Forest and came across this busy little place. Fortunately there was a table for 2 immediately available. Pleasant service and a decent choice of light food and baguettes etc. Reasonable prices and overall good quality. We thought that the salad had far too much dressing and the chips... More

Good personal service with acceptable food at reasonable prices; shame they forgot to put teabags in the teapot!! Freqented by many cyclists who can leave their bikes within sight. You can sit outside with blankets. Good sense of humour and nice vintage china.

Literally love it here! Such friendly staff, homemade afternoon tea - which is so hard to find these days. Always such a good selection of cakes and sandwich fillings. Definitely recommend.

Based in Brockenhurst on the Brookley Road, our bakery and tea house remains true to the ethics at the heart of the Rosie Lea brand, using locally produced New Forest ingredients to create high quality baked produce, keeping our carbon footprint down and remaining as ecologically friendly as possible.During a visit to the bakery you can expect to enjoy creations containing local eggs, flour, meats & cheeses, locally produced jam and locally crafted chocolates. In addition to supporting existing New Forest businesses, Rosie Lea also provides a comprehensive and varied “free from” menu aiming to give those with specific dietary requirements as good a selection as those without.All our produce is baked on site ad can also be beautifully packaged and taken away.The Tea House runs from early morning breakfast serving a good choice from menu from the humble muffin, to the house specialty “morning Tea”, a full continental breakfast served on a three tiered china cake stand, both glamorous and satisfying for hungry tums! Throughout the remainder of the day Rosie Lea will be serving up light lunches, full sumptuous afternoon teas and a variety of cakes and baked goodies, and of course it wouldn’t be Rosie Lea if they didn’t serve you on their beautiful vintage china!
