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!

This tea room is to die for! Tucked away in a quiet village, the staff are very helpful and the selection is great, it's quite a journey for most people but well worth the effort!

It's worth phoning ahead to book as its a very popular destination at peak times!

Located in a lovely village of Purbeck stone houses, the tea room offers a unique and beautiful outside garden setting. My cream tea was delicious with a warm fruit scone, jam and clotted cream. I was visiting from Canada and my friend made a point of searching out this venue. It was well worth the effort.

I took my 90 year old mother here because I had read the good reviews on tripadviser but the woman in charge was awful. She could not give us a table unless we sat outside. It wasn't the weather for outside. She told us we should have had a reservation!! The young girl working there went to make a suggestion where we could sit and the women really snapped at her. Very unpleasant, unhelpful and rude.

The tea rooms have somewhat patchy service, at least they did when we went in. Sometimes seeming very nice, but sometimes quite strict. No, you can not have food to eat beside the pond!!! They have an absolutely delightful garden out the back with tables wonderfully spread out, so you are not on top of anyone else. The scones were superb. Both the cream/jam ones we had and the savory ones too. You really feel like you are in a part of England that has mostly, sadly, gone now. Which is almost as good a reason for going as the delightful scones.
