A friend recommended Worth Matravers and its tea room when we said we were heading to Poole for the weekend. When we reached the village that May bank hol weekend we found a busy village with a field In use as an overflow car park and wondered if we should give up as they were having a village fete. However we persevered and walked down to the duck pond and found the tea room. Without much hope given the number of people around we asked if they had arable for 2 for lunch and were led out the back. There we found a lovely walled garden with peonies etc - a little oasis with only one other table occupied but it soon filled up. I had homemade fish cakes which were a little bland but my fiancée had a crab gratin which she loved. Tea came in old fashioned cups and saucers. We were really happy to relax in the sunshine in this little oasis. A good escape from the outside world in more ways than one as they don't have wifi and no reception in the village either!
