Awarded Best Afternoon Tea Place in Cheshire, UK.  A quintessential English Tea Room with antique lace table cloths and bone china tea services, Davenports Tea Room is themed around Alice in Wonderland with murals on the walls, Alice in Wonderland collectables.  Staff are dressed in Edwardian “Downton Abbey’ style outfits, William Morris wall paper, it really is like stepping back in time.  Once discovered, customers regularly return and most appreciated, tell others.

Please note to maintain the ambience for all our guests we ask that mobile phones are turned onto silent.  Although we are mostly an adult venue, we do allow well behaved children, however we discourage electronic equipment to entertain children for the same reason.  Also please note that we do not have space for any prams.

Sadly due to supply issues, we unless you are already booked in, we will no longer be offering gluten free, nut free or vegan/dairy free options.  We will continue to make spelt scones which is often easier to digest for those who are wheat intolerant, but all other cakes will contain normal wheat.

“We had a Victorian Christmas Afternoon Tea, which included wonderful sandwiches (salmon/cream cheese, beef paste, ham & turkey/cranberry), artisan pies, delicious cakes and homemade scones. The tea (darjleeling & mint/choc rooibos) was lovely and refreshing. The service was impeccable, with a real knowledgeable description of the food and drinks and attention to detail.”

“This afternoon tea was a Father’s Day present from my daughter but we decided to defer the Experience to take advantage of the ‘ Victorian event ‘ in the run up to Christmas. What a good decision this was , the management had gone to great lengths to attractively decorate the tea rooms in a Victorian/Christmas theme and even dressed in Victorian attire. The afternoon tea was a delight in every respect, the food was clearly freshly made using homemade and local produce. Minor dietary quirks were catered for superbly. We opted for traditional tea / coffee rather than the offer of mulled wine ( alcoholic or non-alcoholic) , I can only say the coffee was delightful. The cakes/ patisseries were varied, beautifully presented, and mouthwatering. Warm , fresh homemade scones completed the afternoon tea. The management team of Davenports are to be complimented, the afternoon tea was a delight and could not be faulted in any way.”

“Hi Ian. I wanted to say from Sarah & I, we LOVED the afternoon tea! I’m not usually a sweet toothed person, however those vegan cakes & sweets were something else. They were so so tasty, I couldn’t stop eating them. Thanks so much for the nice extra touches with the ribbons too. It was all totally delicious & we will be back to eat more, experience the beautiful tea room & hopefully come on the barge at some point too. Thanks again to you & your wife. Really pleased I contacted you & have been Davenports in my life.”

I have to say the service provided exceeded my expectations, the afternoon tea was presented beautifully in well organised boxes which included the most beautiful sandwiches and cakes.
