Really lovely lunch. Hubby and I chose from the menu whilst the kids were able to pick from the shelves (can't beat a Heinz Tom soup when you're 5 & 2 right?!) Great quality, mostly locally sourced. Great cheese and jam selection!!

We had the trout pate, which was locally sourced and very delicious. Great service, willing to give advice on the local area, too.

A lovely, friendly welcome at the Minsted Tearooms. The delicious cake and coffee we're perfect after our walk through the surrounding countryside and stop at Furzy Gardens. The owner was particularly friendly and attentive. We shall definitely return, and highly recommend all to visit.

Came across this lovely tea room trying to avoid traffic in Lyndhurst. Very friendly, great customer service and lovely home made food and to top it off we were surrounded by new forest ponies. A really delightful place - highly recommended

We pre-booked a table for a cream tea - all we would say is "Wonderful!" Service was excellent, beautiful home made scones and refills of tea were offered as needed! Many thanks! Hopefully we will visit again.

This is a small local village shop that offers a great little Tea Room. That members of the village and public can use whilst visiting the New Forest. Fantastic Cream Teas!
