Cream Tea Room in Stow-on-the-Wold




Our first Cotswold cream tea was in the Cream Tea Room in Stow on May 31. This tea room was new to us as it has been open about one year. I was impressed by the selection of loose leaf teas. As we continued traveling around the Cotswolds and Devon, I discovered several tea rooms had added loose leaf teas and several coffee choices to their menus since our last visit in 2004. This tea room was very typical of many local small tea rooms with the husband and wife being the only employees. In this case, the husband did food preparation while the wife was the server and hostess. often it was the other way around with the wife in the kitchen and the husband taking care of the service.

When we visited earlier this week we didn't have a cream tea but had some wonderful lemon cake - excellent selection of cakes and teas and we will definitely visit again when we are next in Stow.
