The Tea Clipper Tea Rooms

To all our lovely customers, it is with great sadness that we have decided to close our doors for the foreseeable future. Primarily this is to protect our staff and family members, some of whom have underlying health conditions. Because of this we will not be offering a take away or delivery service.

Unfortunately that also means we will have to cancel the Mother’s Day afternoon teas, hopefully, when the situation has resolved itself, we will be able to re-offer this at a future date.

Thank you for your past business, and we hope to be able to serve you all again soon.

Kathy, Alastair, Emily and Rosie

Usual Opening Hours

Fridays to Sundays 10am-4pm.

Afternoon Tea Feb 20

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  toasted sandwiches, jacket potatoes and freshly made soup, 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 or up to the Abbey and pop in for a drink and slice of cake!
