Found this by accident while out on a ride for the afternoon with a friend! Had early dinner. Such a lovely place to eat! Food and service terrific. Just looking at the decor of the restaurant is amazing! A must visit if in the area.

Beautiful setting, real china and all the promise of a wonderful experience. We went for the posh afternoon tea. What we got. A lukewarm reception, uninteresting, too thickly cut bread, sandwiches and boring small cakes. We had to get up and ask for the bill as the waitress disappeared as soon as she had served us. We saw ourselves out... More

Stopped here after walking around bear skin neck on our way toward Gloucester. Service was very friendly and the food was fresh and tasty. They offered gluten free items so I was able to have a sandwich.

Excellent scones, clotted cream is excellent but worth if. Great fresh brewed great selection of teas. Not really for small children. High tea with sandwiches, scones, sweets and tea. Small selection on regular sandwiches also.

When vacationing, it is all too easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of trying to do too much, while negotiating crowds, and scrutinizing travel books so you won't miss anything. Exhausting. Heath's Tea Room offers a respite from that crazy pace. You sit in a lovely tea room, sip the tea of your choice, enjoy an excellent selection... More

Stepping into this adorably decorated restaurant is like entering a tea room in the UK. Every table is set with a lace tablecloth and charmingly mismatched vintage china cups. There is an antique store downstairs as well, adding to the unique feel of the place. We greatly enjoyed the Tea for Two which consisted of your choice of many varieties... More

Heath's Tea Room is a lovely low noise level spot for a relaxed light lunch. Unlike most establishments in Rockport there is no water view, fried food or milling tourists. Fine Porcelain cups and saucers, lace white tablecloths, excellent service and flavorful fresh homemade soups, salads and baked goods are the draw here. There are a few entree offerings but... More
