We’re so sorry but we’re not currently taking bookings.

Our tables work on a first come first served basis, but the wait is rarely very long!

July 2020


It can get very busy at the tearooms during weekends and holidays – so please do book to avoid disappointment. You can book:

– by phone (we can’t pick up when we’re busy, but please leave a message – we will listen to it at our earliest opportunity and get back to you!)

– by filling in the booking form (please give us 24 hours, as we will only check messages at the end of the day. We ALWAYS reply to all e-mail bookings to confirm your reservation; if you haven’t heard from us within 24 hours, please check your ‘junk’ e-mails – often our responses end up in there for some reason!)

– via our Facebook page  /ThomasOkenTeaRooms

Our large upstairs room provides an ideal venue for small private functions (for a minimum of 16 and a maximum of 25 people) and is available during the day on week days or outside of trading hours at the weekends and school holidays.

The whole tearooms can be made available for evening functions and can accommodate up to 45 people.

Due to high demand, we are only able to accept bookings of up to 10 people on a Saturday and Sunday.

We regularly host birthday parties, christening parties, wedding receptions, graduation parties, hen parties and baby showers – so do please get in touch with your requirements!

The upstairs rooms are also used during the week by meetings of a local writing group and a lipreading class – and we have many local businesses booking the small upstairs room for work meetings away from the office, or the large room for workshops.

Wi-Fi is available free of charge for all guests.

"What part of confidante has that poor teapot played ever since the kindly plant was introduced among us. Why myriads of women have cried over it, to be sure! What sickbeds it has smoked by! What fevered lips have received refreshment from it! Nature meant very kindly by women when she made the tea plant; and with a little thought, what a series of pictures and groups the fancy may conjure up and assemble round the teapot and cup." - William Makepeace Thackeray
