The Doll's House, a pretty tea room and café, has been sitting on top of picturesque Harrow on the Hill for six years. You can enjoy breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea inside this converted Georgian house, and can sit outside when the weather is fine. All the scones and cakes (including gluten free varieties) are baked freshly on the premises, accompanied by tea served in pretty china cups.

Lunches comprise homemade soups, jacket potatoes and a variety of sandwiches. Afternoon tea can be merely a slice of cake, a scone with jam and cream, or the full monty of sandwiches, scones with clotted cream, and cake.

When you are up on the Hill you will feel as if you've stepped back in time. The world famous Harrow School is a mere hop, skip and a jump away, as is St Mary's Church, dating back to the eleventh century. It stands to reason that you should treat yourself to a traditional English afternoon tea when you are surrounded by so much history. Should you overindulge in the goodies on offer at the Doll's House, you can always take yourself for a brisk walk back down the hill again.
