Dreadful service
Jun 2021 • Couples
Staying in the area and popped in. In a nice area although looks a bit run down. Not that busy. Lots of free tables. Did not order much but after 40 minutes we had waited long enough. Seemed everyone else was getting food except us. We asked about our food and then got the COVID talk about short staffing. I can accept that but tell us when we order so an informed decision can be made. Unfortunately I will avoid in the future.

Never seen so many teapots!
Jun 2021 • Couples
Really grateful to the staff at Teapot Island for opening the exhibition for us even though it was supposed to be closed.

If you love teapots this is definitely the place to be. With around 8,000 teapots there is something there for everyone.

I was thoroughly amazed at the sheer volume and variety of teapots. Whilst 8,000 sounds a lot until you actually see them all laid out it is hard to comprehend such a volume.

There was definitely something there for everyone with some unusual, quirky and some slightly naughty pots. It was also a great trip down memory lane with lots of retro pots.

This place is definitely worth 5 stars because the entrance fee is only £2.50, which is an absolute steal.

If I were to suggest some improvements it would be to have a better grouping/theme of the teapots. I would also have loved to have some sort of guidebook with them all in available to purchase.

All in all, well worth a look. Especially as there is a cafe by the river and also a pub across the river meaning there are places to eat and drink whilst you are there.

Couldn’t fault the service food or facilities. So different from other reports great sandwich and the loos were scrupulous.

No Covid at Teapot Island!
Sep 2020 • Friends
Tables not adequately distanced, or cleaned after use. No hand sanitizer in sight. Ice cream dispensed and handed to you by assistant not wearing gloves (or mask). Just a small piece of tissue partly wrapped around the cone which she holds and then passes on to you. Didn’t feel Covid safe-I wonder why. Ice cream was lovely but will not be returning.

Awful place
Aug 2020
Don't bother going here, staff were not very welcoming, generally disorganised, the place appeared dirty especially the loos.

The cake i ordered was put on the plate with bare fingers (where's the tongs?) you would have thought during covid 19 you wouldn't consider even handling food with your hands?

I won't be back....

Beware the wasps
Aug 2020 • Family
Not a particularly friendly cafe and extremely busy. We had to wait 45 minutes for the food, which was nothing great, but the whole outside seating area was full of wasps. Not one or two, literally loads of them and once this is added to an average meal, long waiting times and a surly man behind the till,it makes it all rather forgettable.

Not bad
Aug 2020 • Family
I was looking forward to a visit to teapot island. What a disappointment. I was expecting at quaint tea room with loads of tea pots around.
It’s a CAFE which charges you to go in to the tea pot room. So didn’t see many tea pots and had an all day breakfast instead. Don’t get me wrong it’s all ok. They sell cakes and cream teas etc but I guess times have changed and they can’t make a living just selling tea and cakes.
