Chew Lake Tea Shop

This is the place to rest your legs, enjoy the splendid views across the lake, watch people fishing and yachting, and sample the delights on the menu. There’s an excellent choice, including sandwiches, hot and cold lunches, a children’s menu, cream teas, cakes and ice creams.

There are two attractively landscaped picnic areas with seating in front of the tea shop, overlooking the lake. There are also two adventure play areas.

In the gift shop you’ll find a good selection of postcards and souvenirs, as well as nature and wildlife books.

The Teashop does take credit/debit cards but not American Express.


For groups of 10 and above.
