Step back in time when you enter Bea’s charming Vintage Tea Rooms next to the Assembly Rooms and Fashion Museum on Saville Row in Bath. Decorated in authentic 1930s/1940s style from the dainty china tea sets and embroidered tablecloths to the ceiling lampshades, bevelled mirrors and wartime posters. It offers a blissful retreat from the hustle and bustle of this popular historic city.

Enjoy an environment reminiscent of Gran’s while you browse wartime recipe leaflets and admire patriotic posters. Sit at a table, to be served by smiling staff in period pinnies, bright red lipstick and landgirl bandanas, serenaded by the music of those momentous moments.

The patisserie cabinet is full of delightful homemade cakes and the renowned buttermilk scones. Breakfast offers the traditional – Home made baked beans, West Country Porridge (made with 3 different types of oats) to scrambled eggs with smoked salmon. The lunch fare is all homemade – soups, quiche, pies, bubble and squeak, beef stew with dumplings and yummy toasted sandwiches. The three-tiered traditional Afternoon Tea (we offer a savoury option too) is a feast for the eyes and the leaf tea is of the finest quality as is the single origin coffee served in a cafetiere.
