We recently visited these tea rooms, and we were really impressed. The team of staff were all incredibly polite and hardworking. We ordered the full Yorkshire breakfasts, cooked perfectly; the portions were generous. We couldn’t resist taking a slice of the homemade Victoria sponge cake. The menu has plenty of options, and a wide range of drinks is available too.

Falling Foss Tea Garden

Falling Foss Tea Garden

A tea garden with a waterfall in a woodland setting! Falling Foss Tea Garden is genuinely magical. The setting is rustic; think picnic tables and wellies. The menu consists of freshly baked scones, served with generous amounts of jam and cream, alongside mouth watering homemade cakes, salads, and sandwiches.

They offer an array of barista coffees, speciality teas, and real dairy ice cream sourced from local suppliers whenever possible. The staff are lovely. We love visiting with little ones after a play in the forest and a paddle in the streams. We indulged in delicious teas and cakes on our last visit, including a dense, sticky gluten-free fig and maple cake. We’ve been here many times before, and we’ll be back again soon.

Dale Head Farm Tea Garden in the North York Moors

Dale Head Farm Tea Garden

This tea garden is located at Dale Head Farm, a working farm at the head of Rosedale. The garden here is so peaceful and boasts views of Rosedale Valley. They warmly welcome group bookings, rain or shine, and well-behaved dogs too! When we stopped by during our hike, we were greeted with a delightful smell of coffee, tea, warm toast, and a huge array of homemade cakes and scones. The quality of the food and drinks is exceptional, the prices are fair, and the view from the garden is simply stunning.

The Middleton Tea Parlour

The Middleton Tea Parlour

Step back in time and enjoy a lovely afternoon tea at Middleton Post Office Tea Parlour, a family-run business in Middleton. We love their homemade cakes and bread from the Stonehouse Bakery at Danby. To add a touch of authenticity, they use vintage China and Silverware that will transport you to the 1940s. The tea parlour is just a short walk from the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. You can sit in, take away any of their delicious cakes, or grab a packed lunch for your walk. We like to warm up with homemade soups and local bread in the colder months.

Lockton Tea Rooms & Gallery

Lockton Tea Rooms & Gallery

Lockton is a charming village filled with creativity and artistry. The village is home to several talented artists whose work is proudly displayed and supported by the Lockton Tea Rooms & Gallery. As well as an art gallery, their tea rooms offer a variety of deliciously fresh hot breakfasts, lunches, sandwiches, and cakes baked right in their kitchen.

Their afternoon tea is a must-try. We stopped by and enjoyed a tasty sausage roll with caramelised onions baked under the pastry. The tea, coffee, and lemon-blueberry cake were simply amazing. We also highly recommend ginger sticky toffee. The small, friendly cafe has outdoor seating, and dogs are welcome. All in all, it’s hard to find a better tea room on the North Yorkshire moors! We’ll keep trying though!
