Tea room exploration : Willow tea house


23 Milner Road, Heswall CH60 5RT. Open Mon-Sat 9am-5pm | www.willowteahouse.com

A lovely find along the West of the Wirral, Willow tea house is nestled just off the busy Heswall high street. A delightfully vintage inspired tea room that's naturally choc full of tea and cake to tempt.

Willow tea house is a must visit tea room in the Wirral, home to an abundance of traditional treats that's made it a firm favourite. Tea is obviously their specialty and they certainly enjoy their cake too, with a menu bursting to the brim with tea time treats and sweets.

Inspired by vintage and shabby chic their tea room is delightfully sweet, plenty of vintage inspired decor adorns the walls matching their pretty patisserie print tables, the settings certainly suit the tea room down a 'T'.

As you enter the tea room the first thing that greets you is their cake counter which is enough to send any cake aficionado into overload with choice. From traditional treats like Victoria sandwich to Carrot cake, and seasonal bakes like ginger cake, they even have gluten free options to choose from so you won't be left out.

On my visit there was plenty of delicious cakes to tempt, you were certainly spoilt for choice.

I decided to try their chocolate cake, a choice you can never go wrong with.. Their take on the chocolate cake was delightfully sweet with a creamy generous layer of frosting in between the cake and on top, with the crunchy chocolate nibs it almost reminded me of a lovely chocolate gateaux.

To accompany the cake I choose their house blend, described as an Irish breakfast blend of black teas, certainly very tasty. You'll find a full menu of tea blends to choose from alongside coffees, hot chocolates and soft drinks.

A welcome stop off on the way to the wirral coast and certainly a lovely find, if you like your tea and cake you'll certainly want to visit.
