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.

    What a place! Attention to detail every step of the way, quirky, attentive, thoughtful - fabulous tea selection and lovely food.
    We were allocated a feature room for our family group birthday party, felt very exclusive in the Chinese suite with our own garden area too - although it wasn't busy so we had a good nose around, the main tea room is beautifully done and the new Egyptian suite is taking shape!
    Look forward to going back and trying out the pre-book-only posh menus, need to not eat all day to maximise chances of getting through it all!

    Delicious sandwiches and cakes - couldn't eat it all! Quite a lot of cream, great attention to detail. As much tea as you want. Service excellent, and lovely gardens.

    The food and service was excellent. The gardens were disappointing but understand it is Aunt Martha's next project following building work at the site.

    Food and service superb, best green salad I have ever had. Tea room lived up to expectations....very Victorian. Shop disappointing and tired looking. Garden will be ok in summer if it is tidied up. Toilet facilities not good, needed a clean and only one general toilet and one disabled. Bit of a curate's egg of a place ....good in parts. Overall a novel and enjoyable experience but needs a bit of refinement.

    it was absolutely charming. The atmosphere and service was very good. The food was excellent. They catered an afternoon tea especially for one of our party who was non dairy she said it was delicious and you would never have known the difference.

    This is a themed eating establishment it is unique in its character, it is an education in itself to have this dining experience. The menu's vary with the seasons to provide an accurate experience of Victorian dining. We always recommend to friends and people alike wherever we are sharing our dining experience with other travellers. The prices are reasonable value for money, go on give it a try!
