Davenports Tea Room located just outside of Northwich, Cheshire has been named one of the Top 10 Places for Afternoon Tea by Britain magazine

Belinda Davenport, resident afternoon tea expert and owner/operator said "We are all thrilled to be recognised.  Since 2013, as the last ever winners of the Tea Guild’s Top Tea Place, we have gone on from strength to strength.  After winning, we represented the UK at the Hanku Department store’s British Fair in Japan, making 14,000 scones there, we were the first place to be asked back in 42 years, going back the following year."

Belinda loves introducing customers to teas and attended the UK Tea Academy in 2020, only to find we had to close the tearoom and offer delivered afternoon teas with tea bags as most people hadn’t got the equipment!  During the pandemic, Belinda was asked by the European Speciality Tea Association to be the UK representative on the newly for Tea Tourism Forum.  Following the first meeting, Belinda received an email, last call for contributions to the Handbook of Tea Tourism published by Routledge and sponsored by the World Tourism Organisation. 

After a year of extensive research, the book was published in Nov 2022 and Belinda was successful in becoming the UK’s only contributory author to the book out of 60 eminent authors from academia and tea professionals. 

Davenports Tea Room, a quintessential English period style tearoom, only offers afternoon teas, from Traditional, Combination (more savoury), Champagne, Celebration with prosecco, Tea Tasters which gives Belinda the opportunity to discuss and offer guests more teas from her extensive range of 50 speciality loose leaf teas.  They also uniquely operate their own canal boat which you can take afternoon tea on board as a private booking of up to 12 passengers and it is fully licensed.

Belinda said, "We do book up quite far in advance and have been full for Mothers’ Day weekend for a number of weeks now. In fact, they have already taken bookings for their Victorian Christmas, but hopefully once you’ve experienced a Davenports Afternoon Tea, it will be definitely worth the wait."
