The Old Station Tea Rooms at Cloughton



Cloughton is a pretty little village that sits just outside of Scarborough, on the road to Whitby. For years we've been passing a sign on the road out there, pointing us in the direction of the Old Station Tea Rooms, and, recently we finally took the turn off and paid it a visit.



The Old Station Tea Rooms is, you guessed it, the old railway station from many years ago when there was a line that went from Scarborough to Whitby. Long since abandoned, that line now provides a cycle/ hiking path and so the tea rooms are well frequented by walkers and cyclists seeking refreshment. 



It was a pleasant day when we visited, meaning we could take advantage of the beautiful garden seating area. I'm glad of that because, having taken a peek inside, I don't think that the cosy tea room itself would be particularly practical for a pram. 



The garden, however, is vast and flowering with beautiful cottage garden blooms. It's a delightful spot to sit and listen to the birds.



The menu is traditional tea room fayre, and the prices fairly standard. I enjoyed toasted crumpets with a very generous helping of jam, and a pot of wonderfully strong coffee. The Mr. Had tea and cake and the whole lot came to £9.



The tea room is definitely a place I would visit again, but only on a warm day. It's a nice spot to stop off at, and would make a lovely pit stop if you're travelling in the area. It's both child and dog friendly, which is always good to know.

    It looks delightful though. Although it may be busier, I'll put it on my Summer list. :)
