The Winding House Tea Rooms

Welcome to The Winding House Tea Rooms. We are a family business committed to offering the best of locally produced food served with care and elegance. We are passionate about all the food and drinks that we produce. Offering light lunches, cream teas and exquisite afternoon teas in our lower tea room, we are confident that you will find a perfect opportunity to take a break from the hectic modern lives we all lead.

If the weather is kind we even have a stunning garden terrace overlooking Bridgnorth Low Town and the River Severn on which you can relax, step back in time to watch the amazing Funicular Railway carriages glide past as you enjoy your refreshments.

All this set in a truly unique building that also houses Bridgnorth’s famous Cliff Railway Engine Room. You can actually see the winding gear operate from our lower tea room, whilst you enjoy a pot of freshly brewed tea or nibble on a homemade scone perhaps.
Unfortunately, due to the historical importance of the building, access for the disabled is extremely limited. This is because of the steep winding staircase, however we will endeavour to assist any guest that needs help.

If you have never been, let’s hope you have the opportunity soon. We look forward to seeing old and new friends.
