Lady Jayne’s Tearoom sits in a quirky building on a small business/retail complex that’s home to Japanese Water Gardens, wooden-garden-building suppliers, a vintage store and other small businesses.

This delightful tearoom is the realisation of a dream by owner Karen Jayne Townsend and her daughter Heather. A cut above your average garden-centre café, it is light and airy inside, with attractive pastel-coloured décor, vintage music and a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. The menu is simple, with all the usual dishes you’d expect: cakes, sandwiches, baked potatoes, salads and toasties, alongside specials such as soups, quiches and sausage rolls. You can also pre-book a full vintage afternoon tea.

When we visited on a Tuesday lunchtime the place was full and customers were being turned away, even with outside seating available. We enjoyed a ploughman’s and traditional egg and cress sandwiches, accompanied by a generous pot of Birchall’s Great Rift Breakfast Tea, all served on attractive crockery and china cups. We followed up with an enormous slice of a superb Victoria sponge.

Lady Jayne’s does what it says on the tin: a traditional British tearoom, done well. It is friendly and welcoming, offering excellent service. If you happen to be getting off the tram at Toton or passing through to do a little shopping, it is well worth stopping by.
