Nancy’s Tea Shop – Such charm!



Since moving out of my family home in July to live with my boyfriend, my Mum and I strive to put dates in our diary so we can have some uninterrupted catch up time together. Not only do we get to catch up on gossip, share troubles and of course put the world to right – we get to eat CAKE!

I have glanced into Nancy’s tea shop whilst driving past on numerous occasions but if I am perfectly honest the amount of pink has been a little intimidating. Hearing more and more positive things about the tea shop (including a rugby player highly rating their fry up) I suggested popping in to my Mum.

Proved wrong! Yes, there is a lot of pink and the atmosphere is delicate and vintage rather than my preferred style of rustic, farm house chic but it is absolutely wonderful.

With it being just one day after Valentine’s Day we could benefit from their loved-up menu. We opted for tea and heart shaped cherry scones. The waitress, who I presume is the manager spoke about the teas as if they were close friends.

“A bligh-tea you say? If you are having the scones and like chocolate why not treat yourself to a chocolatey flavoured naugh-tea?” she suggested.

What’s more the lovely waitress said that if the tea wasn’t to our taste she would swap it for our original request.

Sitting on the sofa in the window, we curled up and gossiped whilst thoroughly enjoying the sweet tea and treats. We think we witnessed a subtle proposal AND saw a charming Dad watch his family’s faces light up as his wife received a bouquet and his beautiful daughters a single flower each from the local florists! What a wonderful Valentine’s treat for the family, afternoon tea at Nancy’s and fresh flowers!

I would highly recommend Nancy’s to ladies wishing to catch up over tasty treats in a pretty setting but also to anyone that is a tea lover! I will definitely be going back to try some more flavors and infusions and have in fact booked a table with my Mum for Grandad’s birthday in April. With him being such a tea lover, we might be there a while!
