Tea Rooms in England - Sample Menu

Pauline Kenny

This is a typical tea room menu in a village. You can have breakfast (a special breakfast 11am or toast and eggs all day long), lunch (jacket potatoes, sandwiches) or afternoon tea. I took a photo of the menu and then typed it on this page so you can have a good look at what is available and what it costs. Menu photographed September 2004 (I will update it on our May 2006 trip).

The Old Tea House, 6 Hailes Street, Winchcombe, Gloucestershire
