The Bridge Tea Rooms, Bradford on Avon

Date visited: Monday 8th October 2018

Coronation Wiltshire chicken, rich chocolate cake, and jasmine flavoured broken orange pekoe tea.

The Bridge Tea Rooms offer the most traditional of tea-taking experiences. The appearance is traditional both inside and out, with a bust of Queen Victoria in an alcove inside and the staff uniform from the Victorian era. There was an open fire too. Tea can be taken both on the ground floor and upstairs on the first floor

On this lunchtime visit, I chose a rather exquisite fruity coronation Wiltshire chicken, rich chocolate cake, and jasmine flavoured broken orange pekoe tea, for £16.85.

Parts of the bridge at Bradford on Avon date from the 14th century, and the small lock-up for which the bridge is famous from the 17th century, but most of the bridge was rebuilt in the 18th century. The building behind was the Lamb Factory, part of the town’s extensive rubber works, but now converted to shops and offices.
