Welcome to The Garden Tea Rooms, a Worcestershire treasure and treat
Morning coffee and a toasted teacake, a light lunch made with local produce, afternoon tea with a freshly baked scone or a big slice of cake all in the majestic grounds of Witley Court.
We always have a selection of gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan cakes.
The village of Great Witley boasts the spectacular ruin of one of England’s great country houses, a 19th century mansion set in stunning landscaped gardens, now cared for by English Heritage. The Court is next to Britain’s finest baroque church, Witley Church, complete with an extensive crypt with its own fascinating history.
Our traditional English tea rooms grew out of a need to raise funds for the upkeep of the church. Now the tea rooms has itself become a visitor attraction.
Taking tea in more than an acre of garden, formerly Lady Rachel Dudley’s private topiary garden, visitors can still see where her tennis court lay. On cooler days there are plenty of tables inside the main room or in the conservatory.
We also have a range of giftware and cards on sale.
Photographs of the plants and garden were all taken at the tea rooms by Gill Wood.
The tearooms will be closed for the winter months from Monday 1st November 2021 until Friday 1st April 2022.
We are currently taking bookings for the 2022 season.

“Wonderful to find such a choice of gluten-free cakes! I normally chew at the napkin.”
