We are a family run country tearoom nestled in Dimmingsdale, in the heart of the beautiful Churnet Valley in Staffordshire. For over 40 years, we have offered a range of high quality, traditional home-made food – from hearty breakfasts, to delicious lunches to tasty snacks – not to mention our extensive range of mouth watering home-made desserts!
Our menu is home-made and we pride ourselves on using only the best ingredients - many of which are sourced from local suppliers within the Staffordshire Moorlands.
Whether you choose to eat in our cosy beamed snug, our airy garden room or alfresco in our beautiful gardens overlooking the woodland, we guarantee you’ll find the atmosphere warm and welcoming.
And, of course as well as enjoying a delicious meal you can take in the beauty and tranquillity of this spectacular valley by strolling through Dimmingsdale and the wider Churnet Valley using one of the established woodland walks.
