My 2 girls and I were lured in on the promise of ice creams on a gorgeous sunny Sunday afternoon, and were delighted to find such a gorgeous garden and beautifully presented high teas, with fabulous china. It was idyllic. The girls played in the garden, and I just relaxed taking in the vicarage tea party feeling. A review from Trip Advisor
Idyllic English Tea Rooms in lovely vicarage gardens - Bettsg
We've been to Lucy's three times now and each time has been even better than the last. The tea is served in lovely china, and the sandwiches are great. I love the home-made cakes, they're always fresh and served with fruit; and all of the cakes I've had have tasted wonderful. The home-made jams and preserves are a nice touch
Lovely, peaceful place with great tea and food - Amy L - Aug 2015
Lucy's tea room is a very special place , a hidden gem in the Nottinghamshire countryside. In the sunshine you can enjoy the lovely garden and in less clement weather the converted barn/ coach house is very pretty all decorated in quirky traditional styling with a strong Cath Kidston influence. The food is delicious all extremely fresh and beautifully presented
