Heartsease Cakes & Aunt Martha's

Stop Press

Gift vouchers have not been issued since March and we regret that any issued on or before that date will no longer be accepted.

  So why has Aunt Martha’s changed?

In his Origin of the Species Charles Darwin wrote:-

“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, not the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.”

Ten years ago an idea was born to create a place where people could enjoy a cup of tea and a piece of cake or a cream tea. This idea became reality in Aunt Martha's Victorian tea room, serving afternoon teas and Sunday lunches, cakes and savoury snacks. The chosen year was 1897, the year of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee, with all its accompanying etiquette and style.  

The establishment became full of atmosphere with the staff following the manner and codes of the period with the cakes and savouries being truly decadent indulgences which were so popular with the Victorians. 1901 saw the passing of Queen Victoria and the evolution of society into the 20th century.

In its new format, that of the tearooms we have sought to retain all that made Aunt Martha’s special, but we are now able to bring in delights not available to our Victorian ancestors.

Additionally we can feature our Heartsease Celebration Cakes

 Nota Bene

Over the coming weeks there are a number of days where we attending a wedding shows and therefore the tearooms will be closed to casual trade. As always it is recommended that a telephone call is made beforehand to make a table reservation.

Most of the establishment is accessible to those who are less able to move around. At the time of your booking please let us know if a wheelchair will be involved as only certain tables would be suitable.
