Located inside rural shopping village Wakefield County Courtyard in Potterspury, Northants, ARTea Room is a licenced teashop offering vintage style and a cosy atmosphere.
On our visit to this pretty and unique place, we opted for a breakfast tea blend. On sitting down with our homemade cakes (one carrot, one coffee), we read the menu in more detail and were delighted to discover descriptions that explained the flavour profiles of all the teas.
If tea is not your drink of choice there are plenty of other options including speciality coffees, milkshakes, soft drinks and real ales from Northamptonshire’s Frog Island Brewery.
If you want something more substantial than tea and cake, ARTea Room also serves good food including breakfasts, jacket potatoes, toasties, sandwiches and salads. Another reason to visit is the artwork on the walls by local artists, including an impressive hand-painted mural.
A catering service is available too.
