Our elegant Tea Room is located in the heart of Bath, providing the perfect setting for afternoon tea in Regency fashion. The Tea Room staff are dressed in full regency regalia, offering a fully-immersive atmosphere to complement your regency dining experience.

On the menu you’ll find a delightful range of loose leaf teas, coffees, sandwiches, snacks and sweets to sate your appetite, while the opulent surroundings provide the perfect backdrop to a Jane Austen themed trip to Bath.
