London's Best Tea Room

Barnes' very own 'Orange Pekoe' is the capitols 'Best Tea Room'

Location: 3 White Hart Lane, SW13 0PX

Description: And this is official - Barnes' very own 'Orange Pekoe' is the 'Best Tea Room' in the capital according to the Time Out '2008 Eating & Drinking Awards'.

This really is an essential for tea lovers everywhere - it's a cute cafe, where you can sample (and buy) over 70 loose-leaf varieties - black, green, white, oolong, rooibos, herbal and fruit.

Sandwiches, fat scones and luscious cakes sit atop the front counter. It's fresh, tasty fare; a muffin came piled high with top-quality smoked salmon and proper cream cheese, while a 'golden vegetable' soup was a light, delicious broth studded with celery, courgette, carrot and tomato chunks and parsley.

Wooden tables dot the trio of small rooms, simply decorated with white walls and pretty tea cups on cherub plinths, though many customers head for the old-fashioned (and rickety) cast-iron tables on the sunny front pavement. Staff are as charming as the setting.

So basically...well worth the accolade!
