Tickled Pink Tea Room

I have been visiting this place for years now – I tend to think of it by it’s older name of Tickle Manor – a change of ownership has seen the name become Tickled Pink. I prefer Tickle Manor, but it remains my favourite tearooms to this day. A crooked little timber framed cottage jammed up in between two neighbouring houses, it is just the cutest place!

They do, however, continue to offer wonderful Poughmans Lunches, with fresh bread, cheese and pickle. This is where my Kiwi partner was introduced to his first taste of genuine Stilton cheese, and oh my word, what a fantastic lunch that was. Also baked potatoes with a good range of fillings. They make a really great pot of tea! One thing that hasn’t changed in all the years I have been coming here is the way they serve the meals on beautiful Portmerion china.
