A Trip to the Tea on the Tea Terrace || Eating Gluten & Dairy Free​

hi lovelies

Just over a week ago my sister celebrated her 20th Birthday. We decided to visit The Tea Terrace in Cobham for a spot of lunch. As always when trying new food establishments I love to document my experience especially when they promise a good and varied free from menu.

Now time to spill the tea on this ‘tea-riffic‘ tea room!

This little cafe was magical with its princess-like decoration was an Instagrammers dream. Of course, we took advantage of this during our visit.

The gluten-free menu was included in the main menu booklet which is always appreciated by me as it means I don’t need to ask for a separate menu before sitting down. It also included an easy to read key which helped (as someone with multiple intolerances) make my choice in food. I ordered a savoury crepe with tuna mayo filling with chips and a side salad (though you could get coleslaw if you are tolerant to milk). There was definitely is plenty to choose from on the menu no matter what your intolerance though I always would recommend checking the restaurant’s menu prior to your visit.

However, I was a little disappointed to find the one dessert I could eat was no longer stocked. A shame as Orange and Lavender cake (gluten and dairy-free) sounded like a great treat! I wasn’t too disheartened though as this is something I’ve come to expect whilst living with such a restricted diet.

You may have seen this little restaurant featured recently on the news for their robot waitress. There was in fact, a film crew inside recording the robot serving a table. She did spend most of its time at the front of the store not doing much. It was entertaining to see her in action though.

I would definitely recommend this tea room to both those with intolerances and those without! The key on the menu is invaluable when making choices and is something I wish all businesses could introduce. The prices were reasonable though it is extra to sit in the Cinderella-style carriages though this would definitely be worthwhile if you have the extra money or are celebrating a special occasion.

Have any of you with multiple food intolerances managed to find a place to have afternoon tea? It has always been a dream of mine but now with my restricted diet is something that feels a little unreachable! If you have let me know in the comments.

  1. I actually went to the Tea Terrace in London Victoria for my friend’s 20th birthday as well! It was so cute but I felt a bit awkward as we were the only ones in there at the time. Definitely not as busy as I had anticipated it to be! xx
