The Bantam Tea Rooms
Chipping Campden is home to a notably elegant High Street that dates back to the 17th century. Each beautiful historic building is a masterpiece of limestone and has its own distinctive style. Along this unspoilt lined street in the heart of Campden you’ll find the butterscotch-coloured Bantam Tea Rooms, which sits pretty as a picture and is well-established as an essential part of the area. Roam past and you won’t be able to resist heading inside after gazing at the pretty window display of tempting sweet treats.
The main building directly overlooks the 17th-century market hall, its history stretching back to 1693. The newly refurbished Hens Nest, a unique self-catering option, dates back to circa 1490. Inside, the quaint tearoom has a charming and somewhat romantic feel to it, as does the rest of what you find. The food offering presents a timeless taste of England within an intimate setting that’s perfect for cosying up with a warm brew and indulgent afternoon tea. Hungry walkers stop by for traditional homemade light lunches comprising the likes of homemade soup, platters, sandwiches and salads. Finish with a slice of gorgeous homemade cake, all of which are freshly baked in the in-house bakery, and visitors can even take away a souvenir of homemade jam or chutney. The lovely tea garden provides an al fresco option from May to September.
If staying over in one of the eight individual en-suite bedrooms, a fresh, locally sourced breakfast is served in the tearoom. Each bedroom is light and airy in order to provide a seamlessly relaxing night’s sleep so you’re refreshed and ready for exploring the next day. Chic cushions and plush throws uplift the calming decor, quality furnishings and relaxing colour palette. No matter when you visit you can bank on friendly, stand-out service with a personal touch. Private parking at the back means The Bantam Tea Rooms is never too far out of reach. Thanks to its position on the Cotswolds’ culinary radar, a visit to The Bantam Tea Rooms is a real must.
