Shropshire cafés and tea rooms: enjoy cream tea or a Shropshire lunch

You don’t need to travel far for sustenance in Shropshire. Our market towns and villages are packed with welcoming tea rooms and cafés ready to serve you with a smile. Perhaps coffee and a slice of homemade cake? If you’re looking for cream tea in Shropshire, be sure to ask for prune damson jam. The hearty prune damson, grown in Shropshire, creates a richly delicious jam that stands up beautifully against clotted cream on a scone. It’s not all delicate china and chintzy tablecloths in Shropshire cafés – although traditional tea rooms have their place here. We do them beautifully. In Shropshire you’ll also find hip cafés producing exciting food, staffed by highly trained baristas serving the best coffee the world has to offer. Pop-ups, open-mic nights, and collaborations between businesses show that Shropshire’s café owners are open to innovation and fun. Take a big sip of Shropshire – our tea rooms and cafés are ready to serve you!
