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.

    I came across your website after looking online for things to do for the day,
    I loved every minute of it it's small and very intimate, my husband and l were the first to arrive which made the experience for me very special, it was our 27th wedding anniversary,
    From the outset we were greeted at the door, loved the Victorian clothes the staff were in the tea rooms were lovely the food was lovely and it was following the Victorian etiquette which l loved, especially the one where the man doesn't pour the drinks on the table the women did!!! There is a little etiquette booklet on your table which made us smile, l think because we were first in aunt Martha came to see us and l found this quite special she was lovely.
    All the staff are very nice and don't mind how many photos l was taking of them, it has a tiny Victorian garden surrounding the tea rooms, which is undergoing some restoration but it was so quiet and peaceful out there.
    The day we went was a gorgeous summer day we were very lucky.
    I loved every minute of the aunt Martha's expierience they even made me a gluten free devils cake which was to die for.

    The entire experience of Aunt Martha's should be on everybody's bucket list. From the moment I made the booking the Martha Team ensured that all our needs and wishes were catered for. We were personally greeted, the food and beverages were superb and the Victorian experience was wonderful.

    As usual we were greeted warmly this time by Miss Hilary who escorted us to the Egyptian room it was amazing so much to look at ! One of our party was gluten free and was very pleased with his meal. We were given exceptional attention nothing too much trouble, didn't feel we had to rush, cakes were to exceptional especially the fruit and chocolate stack!! Whenever we have visitors and want to take them somewhere different Aunt Martha's is our 1st choice it is as it says "an experience"

    Took my dad and mother in law for their birthday treat along with my mother, husband and myself. We all really enjoyed the experience of the formal Victorian afternoon tea and will be visiting again soon with my daughter and daughter in law to be.

    Food was fantastic as usual and very attentive service. We were put in the Egyptian room which was not as nice as the Victorian tea room.
