Witley Court Tea Room

We set off on our journey a little later than intended and stopped off for a cup of tea in a local farm shop before continuing on our journey. The SatNav took us on a completely different route (via Kidderminster and not through the Herefordshire countryside) than it did on our previous visit to Colwall.

This enabled us to stop for lunch at the tea shop next to Witley Court. We both had the pea and celery soup which was delicious.

After lunch we continued on our way to Colwall hoping to stop at the shopping village we had enjoyed last time we were in the area.  Due to the SatNav choosing a different route we missed it completely so we tried to recall where it was from memory. After 45 minutes of fruitless searching we had almost given up hope when we saw it signposted. We arrived only to find that it is closed on Mondays!

By this time it was checking in time so we retraced our steps to the hotel, checked in and had a cup of tea in the hotel bar area, but sadly not the cake that we had hoped for if we  had been able to visit the shopping village.

The barman came over to us because he recognised us and was wondering if we had stayed at the hotel before. We said we had and he wondered why we had come back. I told him we liked the hotel, we liked the area and that we were there for our Wedding Anniversary. He then arranged a complimentary bottle of Prosecco for us, it would have been rude to refuse. We sat drinking the Prosecco and chatting to other customers before returning to our room to unpack and get dressed for dinner.

The service in the restaurant was a little quirky as it  had been occasionally  during our previous visit.

When we got back to the room I noticed that the book with useful hints, tips, emergency numbers and most importantly the time breakfast was served had vanished from the dressing table! Mr C went down to reception to enquire about breakfast times mentioning that the book had gone. He was informed that the books were being  updated with more up to date and better information.

The room itself was a little chilly due to the weather being more like autumn than June so we had to use the plug in heaters that we found located in the wardrobe.

    All good but that covered area at the top is superb.

      That picture is of a very nice tea room. It is even better when the weather is favourable enough to allow sitting outside in the garden.
