It was Lovely - set in 1897 and the whole place and staff were kitted out accordingly !
Slightly surreal experience but very enjoyable and not bad prices either !

Awarded the Cotswold Life Food & Drink Award 2014 for the best tea-rooms Aunt Martha's is a traditional Victorian tea room in Drybrook. Delighting in perfect table etiquette, the venue was named also Finest Tea Room 2014 by This is England. Aunt Martha’s runs frequent themed events, such as Alice in Wonderland tea parties.

The tea-rooms serve a quintessentially British selection of savoury and sweet delicacies for lunches and afternoon teas. Freshly prepared dainty sandwiches, warm scones with peach preserve and clotted cream, and delicious homemade pastries and cakes, decorated with chocolate and sugar sculptures, are served up during afternoon tea. Available in 4 different varieties, afternoon tea includes an ‘aristocratic high tea’ option with a celebratory Duchess cake.

A range of exquisite teas accompany delicacies at Aunt Martha’s in Gloucestershire, which revels in pristine table settings. A nostalgic 19th-century setting, the tea rooms are attached to a series of beautifully-manicured gardens and pavilions.

Aunt Martha’s Victorian Tea Rooms is in a leafy spot on the outskirts of the Wye Valley, 15 minutes’ drive from Ross-on-Wye.

    Having afternoon tea at Aunt Martha's tearoom was a very interesting and enjoyable experience.
    The sandwiches, cakes and scones were delicious.
    Aunt Martha & her team were friendly, welcoming and helpful.
    The only negative aspect was the price which we felt was expensive.
    Thank you for a lovely afternoon spent in your company,

    It was brilliant. More lovely food than we could eat - had to get a doggy bag. Huge choice of teas, sandwiches, scones, raspberry cake, chocolate cake, shortbread, lemon sundae. stuffed mushrooms...vegetarian catered for. Will definitely visit again. Perfect place to take overseas guests.

    The cottage was nicely done, the people and place looked authentic. the tea and coffee could have been warmer but scones, cream and jam were delicious.
    overall very nice and different.

    Look forward to visiting again.

    I love this tea room and will definitely go again... Probably each season When they recreate and adapt their menu to adhere to Victorian guidelines.
    The staff here are fabulous... Very attentive in period costume with a story to tell.
    Could be daunting although I think I'm a Victorian at heart so not intimidated :)
    The food is divine ... Everything home cooked or freshly baked ... Even the jams and chutneys.
    The whole experience was such fun.
    If you like to live and visualise history go along for a taste of Victorian living.
