Shhhh, Secret Tearoom
There is no telephone number to contact the tearoom, enquiries about availability can only be made through their website and only once a table for four to seven people is booked will directions to the tearoom be revealed.....
At booking, special dietary requirements are noted as are the guests' first names so that personalised place settings can be made. And then upon arrival, the delicious tea-fest commences! A typical Secret Tearoom menu comprises of sandwiches with fillings such as locally raised beef with homemade chilli jam, chicken and tarragon and perhaps Colston Bassett stilton with pear and walnut. This could be followed by brandy-soaked current, thyme and parmesan scones or feta and fresh herb loaf with savoury tartlets. Then a selection of three cakes will arrive, such as individual salted caramel and chocolate tarts, blueberry and lime drizzle cake and lavender shortbread. A number of loose leaf teas are available as are homemade cordial or lemonade and guests can also bring their own alcohol if they wish and glasses will be provided.
Close to Nottingham, but with a rural feel and with a dining room that looks out over fields, the tearoom has been running for a year in an area very popular with walkers. A special, private treat for birthdays and celebrations or just a lovely fun indulgence, guests are invited to 'donate' £15-£20 per person for their secret tearoom experience.
