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.
Following the government announcement on the roadmap out of lockdown, we are now preparing to reopen.
From 29th March (when Witley Court reopens) we shall be open for takeaway only, offering hot and cold drinks, cakes, ice cream and snacks.
From 12th April the garden tables will be outside for customers in groups of no more than six or two households.
Please contact Gill should you wish to book a table.
We have vouchers for Afternoon Tea and High Tea on sale.
Please see the Afternoon Tea page for prices and contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to order.
The tea rooms will be open seven days a week from 11am-5pm, weather permitting.
As we are only allowed to serve customers outside we may close if the weather is very poor.
Call 01299 896016 should you wish to check.

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