We were delighted when our Pooh-seum (the worlds first Winnie the Pooh Museum dedicated to the people behind the books) was officially opened by BBC Presenter Gyles Brandreth on December 7th 2019. Gyles, an old friend of Christopher Robin Milne said “Christopher would approve” – you can’t get a better recommendation that that!
Also present was BBC Presenter Charlotte Wright who reported from the event.

The Enchanted Places – Christopher Milne
“Subsequent trips included our weekly visit to Hartfield, a mile away along a main road, up a steep hill, down a steep hill and in at the first shop on the left hand side. Jessica (my donkey) needed no urging and the woman behind the counter no instructions. It was a pennyworth of bullseyes for each of us.”

What our customers think…
Other tearooms take note – this is how a busy operation should be run. On one of the busiest days of the year, with a large local fete adding to the already heaving tourist destination, I turned up with my elderly and immobile mother in law plus two others. No booking system here- you wait for a table. We asked if we could wait outside where we could sit down, and sure enough we were called in after approx. 20 mins to a table with a window. The tearoom was short staffed- three people plus a manager covering over 60 seats- yet the staff were patient with our mobility issue and always friendly. The service was outstanding- attentive, friendly, and very quick, and it was clear it wasn’t just us- the staff work really hard to make people happy. I’ve run busy restaurants and many eateries could learn a lesson or two here. The food was lovely – fresh and well presented, reasonable value and portion sizes. We will certainly be back (on a less busy day) and I recommend this establishment highly.
Had another fabulous visit to Pooh Corner. We only waited a few minutes for a table in the lovely outside courtyard garden. Two warm fruit scones with cream and jam was delicious along with a lovely flat white coffee. As was the tuna sandwich on gluten free bread and almond latte. The staff are always polite and the service very good. Although there was a constant stream of visitors, the queue reduced quickly. We will definitely be returning.
Lovely tearoom and really nice museum. Makes a fantastic day out. The walk from poohs corner to the bridge was good. We almost missed the last bus but the owner was kind enough to give us a lift. Really lovely man, like all the staff were. Genuine and authentic atmosphere. well priced and delicious menu. Cannot recommend the tearoom enough
