The tea room has recently changed hands and is now forties style. It has a really lovely atmosphere and the food is lovely, especially the breakfast. Definitely worth a visit.

An excellent site to visit alone, with family or friends, the whole site oozes history and its connections with the Stuarts and the Civil War make it a must for every seventeenth century historian.

We took the guided tour which takes about 50 minutes and was very educational. Unfortunately, most of the furniture isn't original anymore but from Victorian times but it's still nice to see where Charles II used to hide. You can also learn about cheesmaking etc....More

Dropped into Boscobel House whilst touring on motorcycles one warm sunny day. A very interesting place to visit with lovely gardens and a fascinating house. The 1940s theme Tea Room was excellent. Great atmosphere, friendly and efficient staff, delicious food and a proper pot of...More
