Sam White took over managing the Steam Pump Tea Room from October 2019.

Due to Covid-19 a limited menu of breakfasts, sandwiches, paninis, cakes and lots of Tea & Coffee is currently available. We hope to start offering main meals again soon.

The usual selection of hot and cold drinks, Barista coffees and specialility teas are also on offer.

On Event days a reduced menu including hot breakfast rolls and baguettes with cold options are available. Hot teas and coffees or canned drinks are also on sale. Our pavillion on the event field is used to supplement the Tea Room on event days. Entry to the Tea Room and Museum grounds is free on non event days, as part of a cycle ride, ramble or just to enjoy a nice cup of tea or coffee.
