All About Us

Worth Matravers Tea and Supper RoomDavid and his wife Diana re-opened the tea room in Worth Matravers  1st April 2012.  The aim was to provide a fabulous eatery which would delight all senses, and would be open for more than just tea !  What they have created is a beautiful environment providing well cooked delicious food for lunch and evenings as well as for a traditional Afternoon Cream Tea.

On arrival at the tearoom they set about painting, decorating and revamping the space which had over the years become a little faded.  They trawled the charity shops and spent many a happy day bidding for odd boxes of crockery and bits and bobs to fill the tearoom with beautiful things.  The intention was to make it as uniformly mismatched as possible…. lots of different plates, teapots, serving dishes etc as well as nostalgic pieces for the shelves.  On the walls they put up old photographs of the village from different years …. all adding to the overall effect.

They found that old radios provided fabulous speakers for their choice of bygone music which would provide the background sound for their diners…. they work perfectly, and David even decided a Roberts radio in the loo would add a little something too.

In the garden they have made the most of the little seating areas among the well planted flower beds and flowering shrubs, creating little nooks of privacy for diners on a sunny day…. an oasis of charm !

“Great for dinner again”We were delighted last year when the Supper Rooms opened in the evening for dinner. This year we ate there twice and were delighted each time.

The choice varies with the season, but we had a great choice of starter – local crab gratin is a special – and excellent mains. We ate a wonderful whole lemon sole at the start of our weeks holiday and Lyme Bay scallops at the end. All were service with good and tasty veg and potatoes. The sirloin steak from a local source also looke demoting as it passed.

The service is friendly and relaxed. The owner is charming as are her young staff. There is no rush and you are made to feel at home. We liked the mix of old plates and glasses and the period (1940s?) music. Inside is eclectic charm and outside in the garden, romance under lights and canopies.

The wine selection is short but well chosen and excellent value particularly after big city mark-ups.

It is great to see a really good local business do well in Worth and to have a place to eat out.
We look forward to coming back..                  5 of 5 starsTripAdvisor: 5 of 5 stars
