I regularly meet up with friends and family at the Tea Rooms for lunch, there is an outside seating area (for when the weathers nice) and also a play ground that can be seen from this seating area.
All the food is freshly prepared and there are always daily specials, normally a soup, sandwich, main meal ie pasta and a burger, on a chalk board above the counter. I have never been disappointed with any of the food I have ordered. They also sell bottles of apple juice made my Shenley Park Trust from the orchard a few minutes walk from the Tea Rooms.
It can get very busy during lunch time (12-2) and they have therefore asked for no pushchairs/prams during this time. This would be my only negative comment as I either have to have my daughter on my lap or put her in a highchair.
The tea room is more of a caf in the park. They do salads and sandwiches. The tables are covered in plastic tablecloths.
The food is nice for a bit to eat with friends.
It does well because of the location inside shenley park. You can take your kids for lunch and then for a play in the park.
They serve apple juice made from the apples at the park, which is nice.
There is ample car parking.
I went here the other day for lunch and ordered a sandwich.it turned up on fresh home made bread (mmm :-)). They also do homemade cakes and you can even have a cream tea here. It will be a great place in the summer as there are set walks you can go (maps along the way) and there is a kiddies playground forkiddies (!!).
Visit regularily. Taken over and now plastic table cloths are gone. Hurrah. Menu changed and kitchen hours but still good for cafe. Unfortunelty as a tea/coffee house the motorway type individual milk cartons spoil what is meant to be a treat. Plus the typical english scones and cream are lacking. With these two things sorted it wuld be great especially as lots of parking.
This cafe is now under new management, it has been completely renovated, is open from 0800-1800 in the summer months and serves breakfasts, lunch, afternoon tea and has a tasty childrens menu. It has a large car park and has a childrens playground at the back and is set in shenley park, look at intheorchard.co.uk for the menu will definitely go back food was delicious.
