This is an attractive tea room in a restored barn at Kelmscott Manor, the home of William Morris until his death.

Inside there are stone walls and tables covered with William Morris patterned oil cloth. On fine days, there is more seating outside with the rooks cawing in the nearby trees.

Inside the barn is a small service counter with a selection of sandwiches and home made cakes, all looking very good. We quickly dismissed the scone and jam, shortbread flapjack, Danish pastries and Victoria sponge. That left coffee cake, iced lemon cake or gluten free carrot cake. That sounded different, so we decided to try that.

There was a good choice of herbal teas for me, which I was offered in either a mug or tea pot. I chose tea pot with a pot of hot water, which gave me three cups of tea.

It was a generous slice of cake with cream cheese filling and topping. It was a crumbly texture and well flavoured with cinnamon. We enjoyed it.

Two pots of tea and two slice of cake came to £9.30 which we felt was good value.

Staff were pleasant and efficient and they take plastic.

There is disabled parking by the house. Otherwise the car park is in the church which is a ten minute walk from the house.
