Miss Margaret Courtney, my great-aunt originally opened her business here in 1909 and it has been run by four generations of ladies in my family. I reopened in summer 2008 as Miss Courtney's Tearooms.
We are an independent tearooms specializing in afternoon tea fare, light lunches and breakfasts. We endeavour to capture the feeling of nostalgia associated with 'taking tea'. Expect old fashioned tablecloths, antique chinaware and glistening chandeliers........ ....take some time to 'take some tea' with us.

No doubt about it the snow and ice brought with it complications and risk and slow slow business. BUT it also made us slow down a little, drive at a snails pace and on a few days stay indoors with our family. No harm I say. Doesn't snow make everywhere so beautiful and even better I suspect the low temperatures keep some of the nasty viruses at bay. I had two amazing days sledging and messing with my husband kids and friends and I head into the new year all the happier for it. A few extra stolen days is worth all the tea in china!
