1940s glamour without the rations
Step into Bea's Vintage Tea Rooms and you step back in time to the 1940's. It's got all the glamour without the food rations.

Bea's Vintage Tea Rooms
Step back in time

Bea's Vintage Tea Rooms is located nearby the Bath Assembly Rooms. Inside is art deco inspired; decorated with grandma's china, bevelled mirrors and flying ducks on the wall. The menus come in old ration book covers, the toilets are an old bomb shelter and staff wear floral bandanas and red lip stick - recreating a 40s feel.

But there is none of the discomfort of war time here. The service is welcoming, the food portions generous and the tea lovingly made. There is a breakfast and lunch menu as well as an extensive loose leaf tea menu to accompany your cream tea, high tea or afternoon tea; plus there's a too-tempting selection of fresh cakes.

One of my favourite touches is the egg timer that comes with your generous pot of tea, letting you know how long to allow for the tea to brew.

Atmosphere, service and food all combine for a wonderful tea experience at Bea's Vintage Tea Rooms, offering something different to the usual traditional fare. Just make sure you leave enough room for the cakes!

Your Comment
As much as the theme is rather neat, I can't help feel the dissonance of having a ration book menu with all these indulgent cakes, scones, etc. Wartime and afternoon tea just don't go together.

It looks rather quaint. Love the slogans - 'Eat a Cupcake then eat another.'
