Lovely little victorian tearoom

The staff are incredibly friendly and accommodating to your dietary requirements. When i asked about their vegan options available my choices were either crisps or a homemade raisin biscuit, i decided on the biscuit which was pretty decent. (Depending on the time you go will greatly impact how many choices you have, better to go when it opens or lunchtime).

For my coffee they did one non-dairy milk (soya) however due to how their machines are set up this can only be made as a black coffee and then they add the milk later, this greatly limits the styles of drink you can have.

Outdoor seating or takeaway only. If you decide to sit outside the atmosphere is very calming.

Pros: Accommodating staff, Reasonable prices, Calming woodland atmosphere

Cons: Few vegan options , One non-dairy milk

Very pleasant

Me and my girlfriend went for a walk in Saltburn woods for the day and got a bit peckish and decided to go to the tea room, unfortunately we did leave it to last minute and just got there in time to order and the waitress said they made some vegan biscuits and they were really nice, it’s a shame we came late and missed all the other vegan options if we were there sooner.

Pros: Very polite staff, Lovely tea room environment

Cons: I wish there was more alternative non dairy milk

Very sweet place, limited vegan options.

The staff was very lovely and acommodating.
There is some vegan ice cream, soy milk and they had a glutenfree vegan macaroon (which I didn‘t try because it didn’t really interest me plus I don‘t want glutenfree stuff, I want real cake).

Unfortunately from the delicious looking plentiful cake buffet there was none vegan.

Another disappointment was getting the tea in to go cups only. That a) didn‘t fit the victorian theme of the place, and b) is a really unsustainable choice.

Friendly helpful staff limited options

It's a beautiful little tea house in the quaint gardens, we sat outside and enjoyed a mid morning piece of oat cake. Sadly when it came to food this was the only option at the time as they had run out of vegan magnum. They had soya milk :)

Pros: Friendly staff , Beautiful setting

Cons: Limited options
