The Old School Tearoom

Carburton, Worksop, Nottingham S80 3BP
$ English Recommended New Editor's Pick

The Old School Tea Room at Carburton in Nottinghamshire is housed in an old schoolhouse, built in the 1930s. It was last used as a school in 1976. We have tried to keep the feel of the old school even though we have done some refurbishment. We serve breakfast, lunch and traditional and clotted cream teas. We serve illy coffee and our baristas are trained by illy caffé to their exacting standards. We also serve Punjana tea. All our scones are homemade on the day.

A great way to book online, this was very easy and convenient for myself. On arrival, our table was reserved and we were provided with menus immediately, order placed and the food very quickly followed. All very tasty and great value for money. We’ll definitely be visiting again.

We had afternoon tea for two to celebrate my friend's birthday. The dining room is lovely, perfectly decorated, and everyone was welcoming. It was a cold, snowy day, and yet there were plenty of cars in the carpark, because the journey is worthwhile even in bad weather. The atmosphere is country-kitchen cosy. The menu choice was plentiful; the food arrived quickly and was delicious. I cannot think of anything that needs changing. Our lunch was simply a joy.

When we arrived, we were told they were short staffed and that they could be a delay when we order. But as busy as it was, the team worked really well to ensure everyone was seen to efficiently. The food is always great as well. Love coming here as they are so friendly.

Couldn't fault anything. We were made very welcome in a relaxed atmosphere, allowed to eat and stay as long as we wished, in unusual, but characterful surroundings. A lovely way to start the day, followed by a leisurely walk around the neighbouring Clumber Park.

We have been coming here for several years. The food is always fresh, Nicely represented and filling. We missed it so much when they had to close temporarily. We always enjoy going in Clumber Park and then popping in here for lunch. A truly lovely place. Staff are great too. Excellent. All round.

We had a lovely afternoon at the tearoom. As the weather was nice we opted to sit outside. My children had afternoon tea, which was generous in size and great value for money. My sister and I opted for the jacket potato, which was served without butter to our request. The service was excellent! A nice stop off before a trip to Clumber.

We visited the Tea Rooms in January 2020 and due to the Lock Down we were prevented from visiting again. The venue is unique and it is an ideal starting point for a walk. The food and service is excellent value. We will be visiting again and do recommend it to my friends.
