The Tea Clipper Tea Rooms is a family-run business set in one of the 36 almost identical thatched cottages within the fabulous village of Milton Abbas, Dorset.

We aim to provide a friendly Dorset welcome to all – offering a selection of light lunches including Bacon, BLT or toasted sandwiches, selection of teas, coffees and cakes and, of course, a Dorset Cream Tea, sweet or savoury, take your pick!

Savoury cream tea is a cheese or smoked cheese scone, tomato and chilli chutney and cream cheese, with a hot drink of your choice.

Why not come along for a walk around Milton Abbas and pop in for a drink and slice of cake!
